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.

If you are seeking a preowned all-electric vehicle that drives more like a regular car, consider purchasing a 2013 Nissan Leaf SV. The U.S. News & World Report gave this plug-in vehicle top marks for its smooth and linear regenerative braking system, which isn’t commonplace for the segment.
The 2013 Leaf is fuelled by an electric motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Power is channelled to the front wheels through a single-speed transmission, allowing the plug-in to reach 60 mph in 10.2 seconds. According to the EPA, the Leaf can travel a full 75 miles on a single charge, which equates to a 129/102 mpg-equivalent. When it’s time to refresh the battery, the SV trim is equipped with an upgraded 6.6-kW onboard charger that requires only four hours when connected to a 220-volt outlet.
On the road, the Leaf drives with a calm precision that feels peppy when needed and smooth at cruising speeds. It is also extremely quiet since the powerplant is mated to a single-speed transmission that doesn’t shift. With competent handling and well-weighted steering, you’ll feel like you are driving a traditional car, but without the need for expensive gasoline. The regenerative braking system on the Leaf was also designed with good pedal-feel in mind.

If you’ve test driven the Toyota Prius or the Kia Optima Hybrid, but are holding out for a fully electric vehicle, consider the 2011 Nissan Leaf SV as your plug-in powered ride. This car is what started the EV craze in North America and has spawned two well-received generations since its unveiling in 2011.
Unlike conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, the Leaf runs on an 80-kilowatt synchronous electric motor that is generated by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is hidden under the cabin floor. Combined, this allows the EV to put out 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, while also reaching a range of 100 miles on a single charge. If you are a numbers person, that equates to an EPA equivalent of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway. For most Seattle area commuters and weekend errand runners, the Leaf’s range more than suffices.
On the exterior, the SV trim looks sharp with 16-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps. Inside, full power accessories are found throughout the cabin, while keyless ignition/entry and cruise control cut down on tedious tasks. For your comfort, the height-adjustable driver seat is complemented by a tilt-only steering wheel and automatic climate controls. Bluetooth is also standard on this trim level.

We all want to do our part to help the environment, but stretching our dollars to do so can be difficult. Organic produce and ethically-sourced products can come with heftier price tags, and switching to more eco-friendly transportation can be unreachable for some.
But not if you choose a preowned 2012 Nissan Leaf SL. This plug-in electric vehicle produces zero emissions and it’s also affordable to purchase and own. It’s an accessible and reasonable option for Seattle area conservationists wanting to ditch expensive fossil fuels and tread softer on the earth.
The 2012 Leaf pulls its energy from an 80-kilowatt motor that is fed by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this allows the EV to produce 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, while dishing out 73 miles of range on a single charge. If you are familiar with EPA ratings, this equates to an equivalent of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway or 99 mpg combined. When it’s time to “refuel”, a visit to a high-voltage charging station will juice up the battery to 80 percent capacity in about 30 minutes. You won’t have huge lags of downtime in this EV.
The SL trim boasts numerous earth-friendly touches that you are sure to appreciate, like comfortable cloth upholstery that is made from recycled materials and a solar panel mounted to the rear spoiler that keeps your devices charged. The 2012 Leaf is also equipped with numerous tech-inclusions to keep you safe and connected on the roads, including a rearview camera, Bluetooth capabilities and a navigation system.
