Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.
Excellent customer service!
Highly recommend Peter Olsen for sales. Super helpful and very authentic. Definitely one of my best experiences thus far.
Thank You, Peter!
very good service
I bought the truck by phone after finding it on line. Everyone there was very helpful once I got there. Robert Klaus is excellent and does great follow up to answer any questions.

If you are in search of a more cost-effective way to get to work or school, or maybe you are on a mission to lessen your carbon footprint, a preowned 2016 Nissan Leaf S can help you excel at both goals. Not only does this plug-in EV feature a sizable range, but it's also nicely equipped with a refined interior, offering the ideal balance between zero-emissions, value, and high-tech features.
The 2016 Leaf S is powered by a 24 kWh laminated lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery, which delivers 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with 220V, its 3.6 kW onboard charger can refresh the battery in just four hours, thus eliminating long periods of downtime. When the Leaf is juiced up and ready to go, you'll fetch a range of 84 miles, which is ideal for booting around Seattle and neighboring areas.
And even at its base level, the 2016 Nissan Leaf S comes very well-equipped with NissanConnect with Mobile Apps and a 5.0-inch color display. There's also a standard Bluetooth hands-free phone system and streaming audio, a hands-free text messaging assistant, and a USB connector for compatible devices. Best of all, the Leaf includes a standard RearView Monitor and Intelligent Key with Push Button Start - how's that for value?

An unfair uncertainty often plagues the electric vehicle market with drivers overlooking the plug-in segment based on ill-advised myths of poor range, high electricity costs, and jarring on-road dynamics. But, Nissan has worked hard to change these negative notions with the availability of the 2015 Leaf SV.
This plug-in performer is anything but unreliable, expensive or fickle. Instead, it's a great preowned EV well-suited for life in Seattle, delivering both efficiency and performance in equal measure.
Under its aerodynamic exterior, the 2015 Nissan Leaf SV's motor is powered by a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery, which outputs an impressive 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. With a front-wheel drivetrain, integrated Vehicle Dynamic Control System, and sturdy rack-and-pinion steering, this EV takes full command of the road, but with a whisper quiet operation that's smooth, engaged and refined.
On a single charge, it yields an 84-mile range, which is enough to quell even the most anxious of commuters. And when it comes time for a charge, you won't be left with empty pockets either, since the 2015 Leaf can be refreshed for as little as three dollars in less than five hours. That's cheaper than your two-coffee-per-day habit!
See for yourself how efficiency and performance come together in the 2015 Leaf SV. To schedule your test drive, contact us at Kirkland Nissan today.

If you are a data crunching, number-loving, tech enthusiast, a 2014 Nissan Leaf SV might just be the preowned vehicle for you. This zero-emissions plug-in performer is loaded with some really cool innovations, which make driving and owning a Leaf an electrifying experience.
The 2014 Leaf SV runs on a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which powers an 80-kilowatt (107-horsepower) electric motor. This motor is responsible for supplying power to the front wheels of the vehicle, while also serving as a generator for the regenerative braking system, which turns wasted brake heat into reusable battery power.
Recharging is handled by a standard onboard 6.6-kilowatt charger, which can restore a fully depleted pack in about four hours. If you have access to a plug-in station at the office, you can travel 84 miles on a single charge, which is great for Seattle commuters.
But, where the Leaf truly shines is its tech - specifically its app integration. All 2014 Leaf SVs can be controlled via a smartphone app, giving drivers access to real-time information about their car. This information is also displayed on the EV's in-dash monitor and shows the charging status, battery energy indicators, and distance/range estimators. Owners can also direct the car to charge when energy rates are the cheapest and pre-heat or pre-cool the vehicle while it's still plugged in.
See how it works here:
Cool, right? To learn more about the 2014 Leaf SV, please contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to schedule a test drive.

If you think slashing your emissions means compromising on performance, think again. There are all-electric vehicles available on the market that produce zero emissions and are pleasant to drive, just like their gasoline counterparts. If this sounds like an ideal solution for you, allow us to introduce the 2013 Nissan Leaf S.
This plug-in performer is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an 80kW motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to the front wheels via a single-speed reduction gear, enabling a 0-to-60-mph acceleration in less than 10 seconds with a top speed of 90 mph.
And instead of stopping at the gas station for traditional fossil fuels, the 2013 Leaf can be recharged for as little as three dollars. On a full "fill", you can expect to achieve 84 miles, which is more than enough range for Seattle area commuters that travel short distances to work or stay-at-home parents or seniors who hustle between school, extra-curricular activities and local errands.
But, one of the greatest features of the 2013 Nissan Leaf S is how well it behaves on the road. As you drive, its operation is virtually silent thanks to the whisper-quiet motor under the hood. The Leaf also lacks the unnatural brake feel found in other vehicles with regenerative braking systems. Instead, when you apply pressure to the brakes, the Leaf is responsive and quick to react, thus serving up a more spirited driving experience.
With a 2013 Leaf S in your driveway, compromise will be a thing of the past. To schedule your test drive, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

You're meeting a friend downtown for dinner and are running a few minutes late. All municipal parking lots are full, leading you back onto the main thoroughfare to find a spot on the road. As you inch your way along, you can feel dread setting in. You'd rather abandon your plans altogether than embarrass yourself with your horrible parallel parking skills.
Can you relate? Then allow us to introduce you to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-performer comes equipped with an Around View Monitor, which takes the strain out of navigating busy streets and parking lots.
It works by providing a virtual bird's-eye view of your surroundings, so you can see where you need to go even when your line of sight is compromised. The Around View Monitor uses four wide-angle cameras set up on the front, rear, left and right corners of the vehicle, providing a full 360-degree panorama. As you back in and out of your spot, you can do so with confidence, since every angle of your vehicle is visible, along with any potential hazards.

But, as you research specs, reviews and top ten lists, you notice that something has changed.

There’s also front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.
For families with young children, the Leaf comes equipped with a child seat upper tether anchor and a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system. Child safety rear door locks are also standard.
On the road, the Leaf SV relies on a host of active safety features, like Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS), to maintain smooth and safe handling. There is also a standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for added peace of mind.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf isn’t even available for purchase on North American soil, but that hasn’t stopped the EV from collecting global awards and accolades prior to its Seattle release. Most recently, the 2018 Leaf was named a “Best Small Family Car” by the Next Green Car Awards 2017, which recognizes the most environmentally friendly vehicles to debut in the United Kingdom over the last 12 months.
Covering eight different categories, the winners are selected from a shortlist of 32 different models across 18 manufacturers. Winning models cover seven vehicle categories and have all been judged against a range of factors, including environmental, performance and cost criteria. Other considerations, such as suitability for purpose, impact on the market, and value for money, are also taken into account.
The Leaf snagged the same award in 2015 for its 2016 MY rendition, proving what we already know at Kirkland Nissan – the Leaf is built on a solid foundation of excellence and innovation. The 2018 model impressed the judges with its improved range, distinctive design and cutting-edge driving technologies – three factors that families look for when purchasing an all-electric car.
Is your family excited to test drive the 2018 Leaf? Well, good news – you won’t have to wait much longer. The next-gen EV is currently on sale in Japan, but will be arriving at dealerships in North America in just a matter of weeks. As soon as we have inventory, we will be sure to share the news with our customers so that you can schedule a test drive in this family-friendly plug-in.
