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.

The all-electric segment provides a variety of options for eco-conscious buyers, but if you are on a budget, preowned is the best bang-for-your-buck. With a 2013 Nissan Leaf SV as your everyday commuter, you’ll enjoy peppy, plug-and-play performance with solid range for as little as $130 monthly.
Powering the 2013 Leaf is an 80-kilowatt electric motor that is generated by a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. Combined, this allows the EV to pump out 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, while achieving a range of 75 miles on a single charge. When it’s time to juice up the battery, the 6.6-kW onboard charger will have you back on the road in four hours using a 220-volt line.
Earning “Good” scores across the board by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) – the highest score possible – the 2013 Leaf was also awarded a Top Safety Pick. Standard protective features on this model include side-impact airbags for the front seats, as well as side curtain airbags, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and traction control. Choosing the SV trim also ensures great value with its 7-inch touchscreen and navigation system, along with Bluetooth connectivity, heated seats and 16-inch alloy wheels.
To go for a test drive in this safe and affordable EV, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, today to learn more about owning a used Leaf.

Great news, Seattle! A longer-range Nissan Leaf is slated for release later this spring! Dubbed the Leaf e+, the all-electric plug-in vehicle will be able to travel 226 miles on a single charge (up from the current 150 miles) with its larger 62 kWh battery pack and higher output powertrain.
Available in S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS, the Leaf will generate 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque from the 160-kW electric motor. The charging equipment on this model has also been revised to include a new 70 kW Quick Charge System, which won’t require any additional time over the current model, even with the 55-percent more battery storage capacity.
Nissan revamped the e-Pedal system, as well, to account for the Leaf e+'s greater mass. The system will improve refinement and pedal modulation in reverse, and offer more regenerative braking overall, allowing drivers to stop more effectively using only the e-Pedal.
Around front, the e+ also sports a front fascia with blue highlights, while “Plus” badging accentuates the rear. Inside, the infotainment will be updated to include a larger 8-inch display and new software.
More details will be released about the e+ in the near future. To learn more, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a preliminary spec review.

In need of thriftier transportation to get around Seattle? Nothing beats the efficiency of a 2016 Nissan Leaf S! This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs on easily accessible household energy, eliminating the need for gasoline to power the battery-generated motor.
Pop the “hood” and you’ll see what we mean – the 2016 Leaf’s plug-and-play formula is void of a regular combustion engine. Instead, this preowned platform runs on a 24 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery to power the 107-horsepower 80-kW electric motor to deliver a range of 84 miles. For regular short-distance commuting or errand running, this is more than enough juice to get you on your way. When it’s time to recharge the battery, simply plug in the cord and the standard 3.6 kW onboard charger will be back to full capacity in about eight hours.
Worried that you’ll have to forego the latest tech and features by switching to an all-electric vehicle? You’ll be happy to know that the S trim comes outfitted with top convenience and comfort equipment. This includes a bright 5.0-inch color display and NissanConnect with Mobile Apps, as well as standard Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity. A rearview camera is included too, plus you’ll benefit from the Intelligent Key with Push Button Start. Cloth upholstery, 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and full power accessories round up the EV’s offering.

On a full charge, you’ll be able to drive for 73 miles, which equates to an energy efficiency equivalent rating (MPGe) of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway.

To help you track your range and battery capacity, the Leaf comes standard with a remote vehicle access system called Nissan Connect. Other tech inclusions boast an advanced trip computer and a navigation system, as well as a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity.

Own the vehicle that The Car Connection gave a 10-out-of-10 for fuel economy. The 2016 Nissan Leaf SV delivers incredible zero emissions performance and a best-in-class range of 107 miles, making it a well-suited option for eco-conscious drivers in Seattle, Washington.
Unlike combustion engine vehicles, the 2016 Leaf is fully powered by regular household energy. The SV trim is anchored by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that generates the 80-kW electric motor for a total of 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. As mentioned, that will net you a range of 107 miles (or an EPA rating of 114 MPGe) without a single drop of gasoline. When it’s time to “fuel up”, the 6.6-kw onboard charger will refresh a completely discharged battery in only four hours, but if that’s not quick enough, the standard DC fast-charging port only needs 30 minutes to juice up the battery to 80 percent capacity.
Aside from its efficiency, the Leaf also scored top marks for its styling, comfort and quality. On the exterior, the SV trim is appointed with upgraded 16-inch alloy wheels, along with a tailgate air deflector to reduce energy use at higher speeds by cutting wind resistance. Inside, the cabin boasts a 7.0-inch central touchscreen that includes navigation and Nissan Connect with handy mobile apps. The seats are even made out of velvety upholstery crafted out of recycled soda bottles. Bluetooth connectivity, an intelligent key fob, and a rearview camera are standard too.
