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.

Whether you are driven by eco-friendly ideals or are wanting to slash your monthly gas expenses, a preowned 2013 Nissan Leaf SL can help you achieve both. This plug-in performer runs solely on electricity and produces zero-emissions, making it a sensible choice for cost- and earth-conscious consumers in Seattle.
Under the hood, you won’t find a typical engine in the 2013 Leaf; instead, it is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an 80kW motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to the front wheels, which makes handling the Leaf similar to any other front-wheel drive compact car. It’s quick off the line too, boasting a 0-to-60-mph sprint in less than 10 seconds with top speeds maxing out at 90 mph to conserve energy. Charging is managed by the SL’s standard 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which reduces the juicing-up time for a fully depleted battery pack to roughly four hours from the base S’s seven to 10 hours. Without any need for traditional fossil fuels, you can kiss your local gas station goodbye.
Cost-savings aside, the Leaf SL also offers immense value with many top-of-the-line standard features. Inside, leather upholstery and a rearview camera are included, as are other conveniences, like Bluetooth connectivity, an intelligent access key fob, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The exterior is appointed with larger 17-inch alloy wheels and a photovoltaic solar panel mounted on the roof spoiler over the tailgate, which reduces unnecessary battery draw to charge small devices.

The 2018 Leaf was completely overhauled for this model year and now boasts a 150-mile range with better acceleration and charging. Power is directed to the motor from a 40-kW-hour lithium-ion battery pack sitting under the cabin floor, which generates 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. When it’s time to juice up, the 6.6 kW onboard-charger with 50-kW DC fast-charger has your back. It takes 40 minutes to restore the battery to 80 percent.
And when it comes to luxury features, the SL certainly does not skimp out. On the exterior, the Leaf offers heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals for those chilly mornings, as well as LED headlights and signature daytime running lights that won’t drain the battery. Inside, there are heated front seats and a steering wheel for your comfort, as well as a Bose audio system with seven speakers.

A distinctive design, whisper-quiet zero-emissions performance and an especially roomy interior have all earned the 2017 Nissan Leaf serious acclaim from automotive journalists and drivers alike. If you haven’t test driven one, we suggest you check out the SL trim level, which boasts impressive range from its plug-in-powered motor.

Owning a vehicle comes with a lot of costs – there are the usual suspects like financing and insurance fees, as well as regular maintenance and repairs. Add in rising fuel prices and it can feel like your pay check disappears before it even hits your bank. And, if you are driving an older model year gas guzzler, it certainly might!
Instead, why not consider a preowned all-electric vehicle, like a 2015 Nissan Leaf SL? This battery-powered performer will not only excite you with its range and smooth performance, but it will also eradicate expensive gas station visits for as long as you own the car.
The 2015 Leaf runs on a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery, which sends electricity to the 80 kW AC synchronous motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. Charging is managed by a 6.6-kWh charger, which restores a fully depleted battery in four hours when a 240-volt Level 2 charging station is used. DC quick-charging is also optional, which lets you recharge the battery to 80 percent of capacity in about 30 minutes at more than 500 CHAdeMO sites nationwide. The range on the 2015 Leaf SL is rated at 84 miles and will only cost you a few dollars in electricity costs – less than your daily premium take-out coffee.

A distinctive design, silent operation and a roomy cabin make the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL unlike any other vehicle on Seattle’s roads. If you’ve been thinking of slipping into something more efficient, consider test driving a preowned model at Kirkland Nissan.
Powered by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor, the 2017 Leaf produces 187 lb-ft of torque without a single drop of gasoline. This EV draws its energy from a 30-kwh battery, which is neatly tucked under the cabin’s floor, and can be recharged from a fully depleted status within five hours using a 240-volt plug. All told, this will net you 107 miles of range or about $3 in charging costs. Expensive gas station visits are history with this plug-in as your eco-friendly chariot.
The Leaf’s sleek body is aero-driven in order to maximize efficiency, while the hatchback design offers acres of rooms inside the cabin. The back seat offers ample stretch out space for two adults (or three in a pinch), thanks to its 106.3-inch wheelbase. Even the Leaf's cargo area is deeper than you might expect, boasting 30 cubic feet of haulage with the rear row folded down or 23.6 with it in place.
Range, efficiency and versatility are the hallmarks of the 2017 Leaf SL. To see if this EV might be the one for you, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive.

If you’ve been wanting to switch from your traditional gas-powered vehicle, but have been wary about the range of an all-electric vehicle, allow us to turn your attention to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-in performer combines advanced battery technology with an aerodynamic design to achieve a 107-mile range on a single charge, which is considered the best in its class for the 2016 model year.
The Leaf zero-emissions EV is fuelled by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor that powers the front wheels to produce a healthy 187 lb-ft of torque. It draws its energy from the lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted under the cabin floor. This 30-kwh battery is where the Leaf gains its admirable range from. Previous model years were equipped with a 24-kwh battery that was only capable of offering double-digit range, which wasn’t practical for some drivers.
Efficiency on the SV model rings in at 112 MPGe or about $3 per charge, according to The Car Connection. With no need for gasoline, expensive fill-ups will be history and you’ll significantly reduce your carbon footprint as well.
