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.

Nissan Electric Vehicle News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington

The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric vehicle that has won the world over with its zero-emissions performance, affordable purchase price and comfortable interior. It's the vehicle that made EV powertrains accessible to the masses, allowing Seattle drivers to go farther on less. With no gas costs to worry about or range anxieties to quell, it remains a popular option in the preowned market - here and around the globe.
Take the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV as an example. This model is powered by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery that sends electricity to an 80-kw electric motor, producing 107 horses and 187 lb-ft of torque. On a single charge, you can expect a 107-mile range at a jaw-dropping 112 MPGe. According to The Car Connection, that works out to just $3 based on the average U.S. electricity rate of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour. And it won't take you a long time to juice up the Leaf SV. It comes equipped with a 6.6-kw onboard charger that can refresh a fully depleted battery in about four hours from a 240-volt level two charging station.
What's more, the 2016 Leaf also comes very well-outfitted for the price. The SV trim boasts heated front seats, as well as comfortable upholstery made from recycled soda bottles. It also includes power door mirrors, chrome door handles, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a tailgate air deflector to reduce energy use at higher speeds. The central touchscreen on the SV is also larger (7.0 inches), and it includes navigation as standard along with Nissan Connect.

If you've had your eye on a Nissan Leaf, but haven't been able to pull the plug (so to speak), now is a great time to own this all-electric vehicle. For 2018, the next generation Leaf has been improved every way over previous models - it's better looking, offers more power and battery range, and it boasts a lower purchase price compared to last year.
Let's start with the styling. New for its next-gen design, the Leaf now sports a more conventional look akin to its gas-powered counterparts. The curvaceous shape and bug-eyed front lights of yesteryear have been replaced with sleeker lines, which are more reminiscent of Nissan's traditional design cues. The only indication of its electric powertrain is the wide charging port door, which remains centered on the nose of the vehicle, just above the grille.
Hidden under the cabin floor is a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which powers the 110-kilowatt motor, producing 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. This ups the Leaf's performance by leaps and bounds, delivering 40 more horses and 49 more lb-ft of torque compared to the 2017 model. Plus, the 2018 Leaf now boasts a range of 150 miles and an energy-efficiency rating of 112 mpge, which is another gain from previous generations.
But, one thing the 2018 Leaf didn't inflate is its price. According to The Car Connection, the cost of the EV fell as its range rose, which isn't something we often see in the automotive industry. It's also $7,000 cheaper than the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Now that's something to celebrate!

In 2011, Nissan shook the automotive industry with the unveiling of the Leaf - an all-electric vehicle powered by laminated compact lithium-ion batteries designed for mass-market appeal. Since then, popularity has grown, spawning several generations and earning the title of best-selling EV.
And today, we're taking a look back to the first-gen 2011 Leaf SL-e, which is available for sale on our preowned lot. Just think - you could own a piece of history!
Under its sleek design, which has been aerodynamically engineered to reduce drag, the 2011 Leaf SL-e is powered by a 24kWh Lithium-ion-manganese-graphite battery pack, which powers the 80kW motor and produces 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Recharging at home with a 220-volt charger will take 4-8 hours, but, according to Edmunds, a commercial quick-charge station can drop that time down to 30 minutes. Fully juiced, the Leaf promises a range of 100 miles, which is about a third of the cruising range available in a conventional car, but that compromise comes with zero gas costs.
And even though this is a 2011 model, it still comes well-equipped with some cool features that aren't always found on current model year vehicles. That's because the Leaf has always been ahead of its time, bringing innovations to the masses. This includes a standard spoiler-mounted solar panel, which stores the sun's energy for future use, and a rearview camera that makes maneuvering through parking lots a breeze. What's more, every Leaf comes standard with Nissan Connection, which is a remote vehicle access system that reports battery recharging data and can activate the climate control via a smartphone.

Student loans, rent, basic necessities, like clothing and food, and the guilt of not saving enough for retirement - these are just some of the financial woes that young people face. It's hard to get ahead, let alone start out. Add in the need for your own transportation and one can feel very overwhelmed.
Allow the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL to usher you into adulthood without stressing your budget. This preowned plug-in vehicle is not only affordable to finance each month, but it will also slash your gas costs to $0 since it runs exclusively on electricity.
Under its sleek, aerodynamic body, the Leaf SL is powered by a 30 kWh, 360-volt lithium-ion battery, which fuels the 80 kW AC synchronous motor to generate 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. This trim level also comes equipped with an upgraded 6.6-kWh on-board charger, which can refresh a dead battery within six hours. From there, it promises to deliver an extensive 107-mile range - just enough distance to get from school to work and your social commitments without the need to plug-in along the way.
The Leaf SL also impresses when it comes to features. Young drivers love its plush, high-tech cabin, which includes standard heated leather seating, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, as well as an available Around View Monitor and seven-speaker Bose premium audio system. The exterior is a head-turner too with upgraded 17" aluminum alloy wheels and fog lights.
The 2017 Leaf SL is made for budget-conscious drivers in Seattle. To learn more about its cost of ownership and specs, contact us at Kirkland Nissan.

At Kirkland Nissan, there is one thing that we believe about the 2018 Leaf - it's a winner! Since its release at the start of the year, the world's best-selling all-electric vehicle has been stashing away accolades and awards.
To date, all have honored the plug-in for its supreme efficiency, range and high-tech offerings. And they keep rolling in! Earlier this month, the 2018 Leaf was given Kelley Blue Book's Five-Year Cost to Own Award, which celebrates new vehicles with the lowest projected ownership expenses.
The award takes a number of considerations into account, such as depreciation, anticipated fuel costs, financing/insurance fees, maintenance/repair costs, as well as any state fees for new models within the first five years. Even with its advanced engineering, innovative technologies and plug-in power, the Leaf rises to the top and we're not surprised. With zero need for gasoline, this EV slashes a huge expense from drivers' budgets, saving them big dollars over time.
Want to know what all the buzz is about? The 2018 Leaf is currently available for test drives at our dealership in Seattle, Washington. Choose from three well-equipped trim levels (S, SV and SL) and enjoy greater range (up to 150 miles), plus a dynamic new design that also incorporates Nissan's latest technology, such as ProPILOT Assist, e-Pedal, Automatic Emergency Braking and more.
We're sure that you'll consider the 2018 Leaf a winner too.

If you are looking for an affordable all-electric vehicle, but are scratching your head as to where to start, skip ahead to the top of the category's list and consider test driving a 2017 Nissan Leaf.
Kelley Blue Book recently named this plug-in performer one of the 5 Best Electric Cars Under $40,000. The editors hailed the EV for its exceptional value, impressive MPGe ratings and long range, making it a well-suited choice for eco- and cost-conscious drivers in Seattle.
Available in three trim levels (S, SV and SL), all 2017 Leafs are energized by a 30 kWh laminated lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery, which powers the high-response 80 kW AC synchronous electric motor. Together, the Leaf throws down an impressive 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, which is great performance for a vehicle not reliant on fossil fuels. Base models are equipped with a 3.6 kW onboard charger, which can fully juice up a dead battery within 7 hours, when using 220V. As you climb to the SV and SL trims, a 6.6 kW onboard charger is standard and can refresh a battery within 6 hours with 220V.
And the range of this EV? Well, that's what is truly impressive. On a single charge, you can enjoy more than 100 miles on all trim levels before having to plug-in. Gas station visits will also be a thing of the past since this all-electric fetches an MPGe rating of 124 city, 101 highway and 112 combined fuel economy.
Why settle for so-so performance and range when you can have the best? To learn more about owning a 2017 Leaf, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan to discuss pricing and specs.

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!
