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.

Ladies and gents, the countdown is on – and it’s not the New Years countdown that you might be thinking of, but rather the highly anticipated arrival of the 2018 Nissan Leaf. New models of this next-gen vehicle will be ready for test driving on North American soil in a matter of weeks. It almost feels like Christmas morning, hearing this news!
As we speak, the Smyrna Assembly Plant in Tennessee is cranking out models of the all-new Leaf. They are one of three global facilities producing the EV, along with the Oppama plant in Yokosuka, Japan, and a factory in Sunderland, England.
Smyrna has been home to the Leaf since 2013 where Nissan employs 8400 people and makes 640,000 vehicles a year. It’s no doubt a big week in Tennessee as they kick off production of the most dynamic and revolutionary vehicle ever built here.
Watch this video to learn more:
At Kirkland Nissan, we are eagerly awaiting our delivery of 2018 Leafs so we can share its dynamic technologies with our customers. Not only does it promise greater range (up to 150 miles), a host of advanced driver assist technologies and a cutting-edge design, but the Leaf also features numerous autonomous driving innovations, including ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal. It’s the way of the future, right here in Seattle, Washington.

For Seattle area drivers in search of an all-electric vehicle that handles more like a regular car, the 2015 Nissan Leaf S is a smart, eco-friendly choice. If you haven’t had a chance to test drive one, we have a number of models in our preowned inventory at Kirkland Nissan.
The 2015 Leaf is powered by an 80 kW lithium-ion battery and 107-horsepower motor that generates 187 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a 0-to-60-mph sprint in about 10 seconds flat – not bad for an all-electric vehicle. As for charging, the Leaf S is quite speedy – the base 3.6 kW onboard charger takes about eight hours on a 220-volt line, or you can upgrade to the optional 6.6 kW version, which reduces charging to five hours.
The range of the 2015 Leaf S clocks in at 84 miles and earns an EPA city/highway fuel economy equivalent of 126/101 mpge. If you are a short-distance traveler or have access to a charging station while at the office, the Leaf is a fantastic solution for commuters who want to wipe out monthly fuel costs.
As for standard features, the S trim comes very well-equipped with Nissan's Intelligent Key system, which allows you to start the car without removing keys from your pocket or purse. It also includes heated front and rear seats, Bluetooth, split folding rear seats, a rear backup camera, a CD player with USB and auxiliary connections, and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel. Other features include power windows, locks and mirrors, 16-inch steel wheels with full covers, automatic temperature control, a rear defroster and a vehicle security system.

If you drive 100 miles a day or have access to convenient EV charging at the office, the 2017 Leaf SL is a fantastic choice for Seattle area commuters in need of a battery-powered car, but at a mainstream price.
As one of the higher trim levels, this all-electric vehicle is the crème-de-la crème, offering great range and value with many standard features.
Here’s a closer look at its specs:
2017 Nissan Leaf SL
80-kW AC synchronous electric motor

6.6-kWh onboard charger takes less than six hours to charge (220 volts)

If you stop and think about electric cars, the Nissan Leaf is likely to come to mind. Since its launch in 2011, this EV has become synonymous with plug-in, all-electric vehicles, known for its affordable price point, nice driving dynamics and user-friendliness.
And aside from its whisper quiet operation, unique aerodynamic design and battery power, you’d think the Leaf is just like any other five-passenger compact hatchback. But, we promise: it’s so much more.
Take the 2014 Leaf SV for example. It’s powered by a lithium-ion battery pack mounted beneath the vehicle’s floor, which pumps out 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque from the 80kW motor. Energy is directed to the front wheels by a single-speed reduction gear, enabling the EV to go from 0-to-60-mph in 10 seconds flat with a top speed of 90 mph. It also features a 6.6 kW onboard charger and 220-volt line, which juices up the Leaf in just five hours – more than enough time to gain a full charge for the drive home while at the office. Total range per charge is an impressive 84 miles.
Inside, the Leaf SV is equipped with many nice touches, like a 7” display, six speakers and navigation. There’s also a handy rearview camera, Bluetooth wireless communication, and heated front and rear seats – all standard!

And, just this week, anticipation has grown even deeper after hearing news that the Leaf took top honors at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) annual Unveiled ceremony, which was presented by the Consumer Technology Association.
In fact, the 2018 Leaf didn’t receive one honor, but two, which cements what we have always known about this zero-emission vehicle – the Nissan Leaf is pioneering the way with innovative advancements that change how we lead our daily lives and lessen our carbon footprint.
At the CES, two Nissan technologies received recognition (ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal technologies), earning the CES Best of Innovation Award Winner for Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology, as well as the CES Honoree for Tech for a Better World. This is the 2018 Leaf’s first honors, but we expect many more to come.

Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint or slash your monthly fuel costs altogether, a preowned all-electric 2013 Nissan Leaf S is an obvious choice. Best of all, you can find a four-year-old used model for under $10K, like at our dealership in Seattle, Washington.
The 2013 Leaf S is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted beneath the floor. The 80kW/107-horsepower motor churns out 207 lb-ft of torque and can easily go from zero to 60 mph in about 10 seconds with a top speed of 90 mph.
As for the cost of ownership, Nissan claims its very affordable with a full recharge estimated at about three dollars, which equates to an 84-mile range. When compared to the rising cost of gasoline, this amounts to huge savings over the life of the EV.
But, one of the nicest features about this Leaf is how it drives. Aside from its whisper quiet operation, the 2013 Nissan Leaf S drives and handles like any mainstream vehicle, thanks to its smooth as silk regenerative braking system. The electric power steering is also light and nicely weighted for both highway and city driving.
Not sure if a 2013 Leaf is right for you? This video might sway you:
To learn more about the Leaf EV, its available options and pricing, contact us at Kirkland Nissan today. We have dozens of new and preowned models in stock, awaiting your next test drive.
Forget the hassle of gas—this is a battery-only wonder machine. The 30-kWh, 360-volt lithium-ion setup offers a 107-mile range and a matching 107 HP. Peppy! And then there’s the fantastic MPGe rating, which provides a considerable 124 city / 101 highway. Discover Seattle on a single charge.
Consumers used to driving in larger vehicles may assume they’ll feel less secure in a compact car like the LEAF. However, Nissan’s automobile excels in most safety categories—in fact, thanks to its electronic stability control and seat-mounted torso airbags, the IIHS awarded this model its highest scores in the “Moderate Overlap Front,” “Roof Strength,” “Head Restraints & Seats,” and “Side” tests. This means you’ll be able to scoot around Seattle, knowing that your passengers are in good hands.
The Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle. The included 24-kWh battery and one-speed automatic transmission offer up 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. However, the true wonderment happens when you consider the EPA-estimated MPGe, which refers to the “miles per gallon gasoline equivalent,” or the average distance traveled per energy unit consumed. On the S model, this is 126 city / 108 highway for a combined 114. Fuel range is at 84. Amazing!
The LEAF offers far more than efficiency. Instead a five-inch NissanConnect screen comes standard (improving upon the 'no-display' design from the previous year). This delivers access to a variety of tech options, including:
Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling.
A Text Messaging Assistant.
USB Ports (which are compatible with smartphones, iPods, and other devices).
All of these features provide drivers with seamless media access - utilizing voice-activated interfacing and wireless digital links to improve every download. Economy and convenience combine.
Like many Seattleites, you are probably looking for an eco-friendly car that requires minimal maintenance but is still technologically advanced. No other vehicle quite fits the bill like the 2017 Nissan LEAF.
On just a single charge, the 2017 Nissan LEAF will drive for up 107 miles, thanks to advanced technology in the standard 30KWH battery. Sustaining the power source for your vehicle is simple: either plug it in at home or at any one of the over 25,000 (and counting) public stations.
In addition to its long lifespan, the lithium-ion battery is equipped with nine range-maximizing features, such as the Multi-Function Display Drive Computer and the onboard navigation system, to get the most mileage from a single charge. Each time you get into your Nissan LEAF, rest assured that your vehicle has the power you need to get where you are going.
For tech-savvy drivers, the 2017 Nissan LEAF allows you to stay connected remotely to your vehicle at all times. From your computer, smartphone, or tablet, track your car’s vitals so you’re never caught by surprise. With the easy-to-use app, quickly find a public station on your route when you need to charge up on-the-go.
