From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford.
I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day.
Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time.
Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.
Great service from Pete & Brian
We bought two used cars, one from Brian and one from Peter. Both took their time to search for the right car and we went with each car on a test drive.
Peter Olson was very helpful with everything took his time to explain and show all.
Management team was remarkable.
This place is a friendly and amazing place to be.
Recommend to everyone that want to have a amazing experience like myself.
Great service from the staff a Key West Ford. I was surprised to pick up vehicle with a fill tank of fuel alot of dealerships don't do this anymore.
Search over !!!
Going above and beyond to satisfy
Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for.
All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful
Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.
Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics.
We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal.
The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new.
We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

In need of thriftier transportation to get around Seattle? Nothing beats the efficiency of a 2016 Nissan Leaf S! This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs on easily accessible household energy, eliminating the need for gasoline to power the battery-generated motor.
Pop the “hood” and you’ll see what we mean – the 2016 Leaf’s plug-and-play formula is void of a regular combustion engine. Instead, this preowned platform runs on a 24 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery to power the 107-horsepower 80-kW electric motor to deliver a range of 84 miles. For regular short-distance commuting or errand running, this is more than enough juice to get you on your way. When it’s time to recharge the battery, simply plug in the cord and the standard 3.6 kW onboard charger will be back to full capacity in about eight hours.
Worried that you’ll have to forego the latest tech and features by switching to an all-electric vehicle? You’ll be happy to know that the S trim comes outfitted with top convenience and comfort equipment. This includes a bright 5.0-inch color display and NissanConnect with Mobile Apps, as well as standard Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity. A rearview camera is included too, plus you’ll benefit from the Intelligent Key with Push Button Start. Cloth upholstery, 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and full power accessories round up the EV’s offering.

Craving a more fuel-friendly and affordable commuter? Slip into a 2012 Nissan Leaf SL! This all-electric four-door hatchback runs solely on plug-in energy, allowing you to say goodbye to gas station visits, while enjoying favorable performance on Seattle’s roads.
Powered by an 80-kilowatt electric motor and a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the 2012 Leaf puts out an easy 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. On a full charge, you’ll be able to drive for 73 miles, which equates to an energy efficiency equivalent rating (MPGe) of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway. You’d be hard-pressed to find a gas-powered engine that thrifty! Acceleration on this model is quite decent too, needing only 10 seconds to reach speeds of 60 mph from a stop.
To help you track your range and battery capacity, the Leaf comes standard with a remote vehicle access system called Nissan Connect. Other tech inclusions boast an advanced trip computer and a navigation system, as well as a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity. All this rides on 16-inch alloy wheels, which are complemented by LED headlamps, heated exterior mirrors, and keyless ignition/entry.

Is one of your resolutions for 2019 to tread softer on the environment? Why wait – start your eco-conscious lifestyle now behind the wheel of a 2017 Nissan Leaf S. This preowned model just hit our inventory and won’t last long. Seattle area drivers especially love this all-electric plug-in’s zero emissions performance and range – we think you will too!
Under the hood, the 2017 Leaf runs on a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that generates the 80-kW electric motor to create 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. On a full charge, that will net you a total of 107 miles, which is great for regular commuters or weekend errand runners. When it’s time to juice up, you won’t have to wait in line at the gas station. Rather, the 3.6-kWh onboard charger uses regular electricity to replenish the battery. Most drivers prefer to charge overnight on a 220-volt line, which takes about eight hours. However, upgrading to the 6.6-kWh charger can reduce your time to less than six hours.
Inside, the Leaf features supportive seating made from partially recycled cloth fabric, which adds to the vehicle’s eco-friendly appeal. Nissan’s Intelligent Key with Push Button Start and power accessories throughout add to your convenience, while the Automatic Temperature Control ensures that you always remain comfortable no matter the season. The S trim also boasts a remote charge port door release, a 12-volt power outlet and 16-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers.

Are you looking to trade in your sedan, but want to try something different? Consider giving a 2016 Nissan Leaf SL a closer look. This preowned all-electric vehicle is a great introduction into the plug-in segment with its exceptional range and quality features.
The 2016 Leaf runs on a 107-horsepower electric motor that gains its energy from the standard 30-kWh battery. According to U.S. News & World Report, the EV’s range sits at 107 miles, which is excellent for the class. That equates to a 124/101 mpg-equivalent (mpg-e) city/highway – you don’t see those numbers with a regular gasoline-powered vehicle! Battery refreshing is made possible by the on-board 6.6-kW charger, which will have you up and running in about six hours.
Inside the cabin, the top-of-the-line SL trim delivers all your must-have creature comforts – and some. Leather upholstery covers the heated seats, which warm weary winter bodies even in the back row, while automatic climate controls keep you just the right temperature year-round. A 7-inch touchscreen houses a navigation system and a six-speaker audio system with HD radio, plus Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity keep you in touch with loved ones.

If you’ve test driven the Toyota Prius or the Kia Optima Hybrid, but are holding out for a fully electric vehicle, consider the 2011 Nissan Leaf SV as your plug-in powered ride. This car is what started the EV craze in North America and has spawned two well-received generations since its unveiling in 2011.

Combined, this allows the EV to put out 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, while also reaching a range of 100 miles on a single charge. If you are a numbers person, that equates to an EPA equivalent of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway. For most Seattle area commuters and weekend errand runners, the Leaf’s range more than suffices.
On the exterior, the SV trim looks sharp with 16-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps. Inside, full power accessories are found throughout the cabin, while keyless ignition/entry and cruise control cut down on tedious tasks. For your comfort, the height-adjustable driver seat is complemented by a tilt-only steering wheel and automatic climate controls. Bluetooth is also standard on this trim level.
