These guys are the BEST! My Salesman, Peter was very helpful and not pushy, made my experience so great and easy. 20/10 recommend them to anyone!
2015 Ford Mustang
Everything about my trip to Key West was great, Peter Olson, Wes Upton & Nicholas Terezakis were amazing to deal with. Super patient guys with a knack for customer service, never once did I feel like I was at a normal dealership, these guys made the car buying process super easy and not stressful.
My New Favourite Dealership!
My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a new SUV, and we ended up being helped by Rob Vanoverschot. I was nervous about going to a dealership as I'd never purchased off of a lot before - and Rob made the process a breeze! He answered all of our questions and never made us feel pressured at all! We test drove about 6 different makes and models and fell in love with a 2019 Ford Escape. I would highly recommend Rob and Key West Ford, even the financing department and insurance department made this process enjoyable!
Not to mention they had the best prices around - and we came all the way out from Abbotsford!
Great Kai and jag were awesome
Great. Worked with my schedual, very helpful. Got back to me fast about all my questions. And even went out a got a keepsake i forgot in my grade in.
Michael and Monina
The most seamless car buying experience with Peter Olson!
It was an awesome experience from the time we walked on the dealer lot to the time we drove home our car. Super friendly Ivan, super helpful Gurj and super salesman Peter!
Erick was very friendly and personable and it was a pleasure to do business with him. I would recommend him and Key West if you’re looking for a vehicle.
Happy with the Flex
Patient and Kind
I was extremely happy with most of the folks I spoke with during my time at Key West. It took me 3 days of visiting the dealership to make sure I was making the right decision on the vehicle for my needs and my budget. All staff but one understood that this purchase wasn't an easy one to make within my budget. Peter Olsen, Michael Nokes and Robert Klaus really understood why I needed to take my time and research all my options. I appreciated their kindness and patience and didn't feel at all pressured into the sale.
Helpful and honest dealers. Car was well inspected and in advertised good condition. Overall the service was good and the sale was fair. Dean was great!
I saw an ad for a F350 at the lot. The truck was not on the lot due to construction. It took a day to get the truck so I could see it. I made a deal and drove it away that afternoon. Happy with the vehicle. Sales person was new to Key West and lacked knowledge of all the options on the truck.

If you are seeking a top-of-the-line preowned all-electric vehicle, consider giving the 2012 Nissan Leaf SL a closer look. Originally released in 2011, this zero-emissions car has grown to be one of the best-selling plug-in vehicles across the globe, delivering a spacious cabin, rich features and snappy acceleration to Seattle area drivers.
The 2012 Leaf runs on an 80-kilowatt electric motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Instead of using traditional fossil fuels, the motor is powered by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is where the Leaf gets its zero-emissions performance from. But, don’t worry – this doesn’t equate to weak on-road dynamics. Rather, in Edmunds performance tests, the Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in 10 seconds, which is equivalent to a subcompact hatchback with automatic transmission.
On a single charge, you can expect to receive a driving range of 73 miles, which is suitable for most local commuters. In terms of efficiency, that equals an EPA rating (MPGe) of 106 mpg city/92 mpg highway or 99 mpg combined. You can’t get that type of performance from a gas-powered vehicle!
Inside, the SL trim is absolutely loaded with cloth upholstery made from recycled materials, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, navigation, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface. On the exterior, the Leaf also boasts a spoiler-mounted solar panel, automatic headlamps, foglamps, and rearview camera to help you navigate busy parking lots. Now that’s great value!

If you’ve been pouring over online reviews about preowned all-electric vehicles, you may have come across complaints about poor range and extended charging times. But, don’t let these assessments steer you away from the segment – zone in on the Leaf EV instead.
Since its release in 2011, Nissan has been perfecting its best-selling plug-in vehicle with each model year. And for 2013, the automaker made some smart enhancements to the Leaf, allowing it to go farther and charge faster than earlier versions.
One of the key improvements to the 2013 Leaf is that it was engineered with an available 6.6 kW onboard charger, which cuts the 220V’s charging time in half to just four hours. For commuters, this is especially important since it allows them to refresh the EV’s battery while at work and have it ready for the drive home.
Nissan also improved the Leaf’s aerodynamics, allowing airflow to travel up and across the low compact hood, pass over the car’s shoulders and exit via the large rear spoiler. The result is less drag and better efficiency, which allows the Leaf to achieve 15 percent more range, totalling 84 miles on a single charge.
It drives beautifully too, with a whisper-quiet operation that Seattle drivers love. To experience it for yourself, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan to learn more about the 2013 Leaf SV today!

Are you ready to say farewell to expensive gas station visits and regular oil changes? If so, consider the 2017 Nissan Leaf S as your next enviro-friendly car. This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs solely on battery power, while delivering a smooth and composed ride with an especially roomy interior.
Pop the hood on this preowned sedan and you won’t find an engine, but a charging port that juices up the 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It is responsible for powering the 80-kW electric motor that generates a healthy 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. According to The Car Connection, this performance allows the Leaf to reach 60 mph in just 10 seconds, which is quite quick for a plug-in car. As you drive around the streets of Seattle, Newcastle and Puyallup, you’ll also enjoy a whisper quiet cabin from the electric powerplant.
Inside, the Leaf dishes up a surprising amount of stretch out space since there isn’t a gas tank occupying the rear of the vehicle and the battery is tucked underneath the floor. With room for five passengers, all occupants will enjoy nice leg room with 42.1 inches in the front and 33.3 inches in the back. There’s also 23.6 cubic feet of cargo room with all seats in place or 30 cubic feet with the second row folded down.
The 2017 Leaf S is a fantastic preowned choice for Seattle drivers. To learn more, contact Kirkland Nissan to schedule a test drive today.

Does the thought of driving an all-electric vehicle give you range anxiety? Do you have fears of being stranded on the side of the road with a dead battery? Take a deep breath – the 2018 Nissan Leaf S is here to quell all of your worries. New and improved for this model year, the EV now offers an extended range, allowing you to go farther than ever before.
The 2018 Leaf S is energized by a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which powers the motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Combined, this lets the plug-in vehicle run for 150 miles before needing to recharge, which is almost double the distance of the first-generation Leaf that was released in 2011.
When it does come time to refresh the battery, the 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger will have you up and running to 80 percent power in about 40 minutes when using a 50-kw CHAdeMO DC fast charger. However, if you are using a 240-volt Level 2 station, charging time will increase to about 8 hours, but many drivers use this time to juice up the battery overnight. By morning, you’ll be ready to tackle your busy commute with confidence – nothing is going to slow you or your EV down.
Curious to see how it handles on Seattle’s city streets? Contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for your test drive in an all-new 2018 Leaf S.

If you’ve been researching preowned all-electric vehicles, but are having a hard time narrowing the field, allow us to turn your attention to the 2015 Nissan Leaf S. Right off the lot, this is an affordable option offering immense value from its many high-tech features, plus it boasts an 84-mile range, which is sure to get you to the office and back.
The 2015 Leaf S runs solely on a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which feeds the 80-kW electric motor.

Come recharging time, simply plug in the 3.6 kW onboard charger and you’ll be good to go in about eight hours.

The S level trim also offers great value since it comes loaded with some really useful features, even at the base level. This includes 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and seats, as well as a rearview camera and a 4.3-in monitor to help you navigate busy parking lots. There’s also a four-speaker sound system and Bluetooth connectivity included on this model.

If you’ve been skeptical about the drivability and range offered by an all-electric vehicle, consider giving the 2016 Nissan Leaf SL a try. This eco-friendly option is fully battery powered and boasts a 107-mile range, which is more than adequate for commuting or booting around Seattle, Washington.
Under its stylish exterior design lies an 80-kW motor, which generates power from the Leaf’s 30 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this allows the EV to deliver 107 horsepower and 187 lb of torque, and it can reach 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds flat.
Charging is managed by the Leaf SL’s quick-charge port, which comes standard and can be used with a high-power station to recharge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes. However, if you are charging at home, the 6.6 kW charger and 30kWh battery take about five hours, which is reasonable for most drivers.
And seeing that the SL is a top-level trim, Nissan didn’t skimp on the details. Automatic headlights, foglights and a solar panel for efficient device charging are all included, as is leather upholstery, heated seats (even in the rear), and a cargo cover to keep your purchases secure.

This all-electric plug-in runs solely on battery power, thus eliminating gas station visits and harmful emissions for as long as you own the vehicle.
The 2013 Leaf is powered by a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which is neatly hidden under the car’s floor. It generates power to the 80-kilowatt electric motor and produces a respectable 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Even with its battery power, the Leaf EV is relatively quick off the line.

Do you have exciting summer day trips planned, but are on a modest budget? If so, consider a preowned 2015 Nissan Leaf S as your getaway car. This plug-in performer is not only cost-effective to purchase and own, but its all-electric powertrain eliminates the need for expensive gas station visits, making it an affordable vehicle to drive around the PNW.
Pop the “hood” and you won’t find a gas-powered engine in the Leaf, but a charging port that juices up the 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack.

With each acceleration, you’ll enjoy 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, which is quite impressive for a plug-in vehicle.
On a single charge, you can expect to achieve a total range of 84 miles or an EPA city/highway fuel economy equivalent of 126/101 mpge. When you need to juice up the battery, the standard 3.6 kW onboard charger can get you up and running in eight hours, but a faster-charging 6.6 kW version is available. And the cost of charging? Well, it’s about the same as your two-cup-a-day take-out coffee habit, only running you a few dollars in electricity costs. How’s that for affordable?
