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!

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.

Pull over, the Chevy Bolt EV and the Hyundai Ioniq EV – there is a slick next-gen plug-in on Seattle’s roads! If you’ve been scanning the all-electric market for your next eco-conscious vehicle, hone in on the 2018 Nissan Leaf SL. This variant gets top praise for its powerful motor and longer driving range, while also boasting the segment’s hottest high-tech equipment, including ProPilot Assist.
Entering its second generation, the 2018 Nissan Leaf SL has been completely redesigned for the new model year, including the powerplant under the hood. The Leaf now runs on a 40 kWh battery pack that generates an electric motor to produce 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. This allows the plug-in to achieve a total driving range of 150 miles on a single charge, which is farther than any previous Leaf model. Charging is managed by the standard 6.6-kW onboard charger, which requires just 40 minutes to get back up to 80 percent capacity. Pretty quick, right?
On the exterior, SL trim boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights and unique turn signals for a look that’s more in-line with traditional combustion engine vehicles. For added protection, an Intelligent Around View Monitor camera and blind spot warning system come standard, as well as ProPilot Assist, which uses an adaptive cruise control system to accelerate and brake for the driver, should they be too slow to react. The SL also boasts heated front seats and a steering wheel for added comfort, while the Bose audio system with seven speakers delivers premium sound.
Anxious to take the 2018 Leaf for a spin? Contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive today.

Last week, we announced exciting pricing news about the upcoming release of the 2019 Nissan Leaf all-electric plug-in vehicle and since then some customers have inquired about the availability of a Leaf E-Plus. Right now, details remain thin about this longer-range EV, but there have been some recent reports that have divulged a few details, which we are happy to share with you.
According to The Torque Report, the 2019 Leaf E-Plus will not only offer a longer range, but generate more power as well. Right now, the regular Leaf delivers a range of 150 miles, but the E-Plus variant will jump to 225 miles. It will also build upon the current EV’s 147 horsepower electric motor to output 200 horsepower with the Leaf E-Plus. An upgraded 60 kWh battery is also expected, which is an improvement from the Leaf’s 40 kWh battery, which will enable the vehicle to better manage its energy stores and traveller longer distances.
Again, details about the 2019 Leaf E-Plus remain minimal for now. As more information is released, we’ll be sure to share it on our blog. In the meantime, we are eagerly awaiting stock of 150-mile range Leaf models and we know that you are too. To pre-book your test drive, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan today or visit our lot to see what 2018 trims are in store.

Fall is an exciting time in the automotive world as word of next model year vehicles are released. Nissan recently announced pricing for the forthcoming 2019 Leaf plug-in and we have good news – the MSRP for all three trim levels of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle will remain unchanged from 2018.
It will also continue to boast the same 150-mile range and intelligent high-tech features, such as ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal, but with the addition of an important standard safety feature, known as Rear Door Alert. It is the industry's first system that uses the horn, along with door sensors and a message displayed in the instrument panel, to remind drivers to check the back seat after the Leaf is parked. The goal is to prevent heat-related incidents with children and pets.
Pricing for the 2019 Leaf starts at $29,990 for the S trim, then works its way up to $32,490 for the mid-range SV grade and caps off at $36,200 for the top-of-the-line SL. Destination and handling is $895 for all models.
The 2019 Leaf won’t arrive at our dealership for a number of weeks. In the meantime, you are welcome to schedule a test drive in a 2018 model to get a taste of this EV’s plug-in power. To book your appointment, call us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington today.
