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.

If you are looking for an all-electric vehicle delivering great performance and agility on urban roads, the 2018 Nissan Leaf S is a natural choice. New for this model year, Nissan made some key improvements to the chassis and body of the hatch, which are sure to enhance your enjoyment on Seattle’s roads.
To start, Nissan engineers boosted the car's chassis for better stability. Heavy components, including the battery, were moved to the center of the vehicle’s body, which allow the vehicle to achieve smaller yaw moments of inertia. The result is better directional stability, which translates to smoother cornering.
Additionally, the 2018 Leaf’s electric power steering system was augmented for a more linear feel with better road feedback, while the urethane bump stop for the rear suspension was replaced by a rubber stop to reduce bumpiness on uneven terrain. The all-new Leaf is also equipped with Intelligent Ride Control for more precise electric motor torque regulation when cornering, thus reducing vibration while concurrently improving ride quality and steering responses.
Match all of this re-engineering with the 2018 Leaf’s improved 110 kW electric motor and 40 kWh Lithium-ion battery with an enhanced 150-mile range – it sure is tough to find a compelling reason to not test drive the world’s best-selling plug-in vehicle!

Perhaps you’ve switched to a plant-based diet or have stopped using plastic in an effort to lessen your carbon footprint, but are still driving a gas-guzzling SUV and would like to get into something more eco-friendly? If so, allow us to introduce you to the 2013 Nissan Leaf SL. This plug-in performer relies solely on electricity to get you from A to B, while creating zero harmful emissions for our environment.
Under the hood, you won’t find a typical engine in the 2013 Leaf; rather, it boasts a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an 80kW motor, delivering 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. But the differences stop there – as soon as you throw the car into drive, you’ll notice that it handles just like any other gas-powered vehicle, except (of course) for its whisper-quiet operation. Even with plug-in power, you’ll still be able to enjoy quick acceleration. In Edmunds performance testing, the 2013 Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds.
When it comes time to juice up the battery, charging is managed by a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which can refresh a fully depleted battery pack in roughly four hours. Range on the SL trim is estimated at 75 miles.
Inside, the Leaf offers many of the same comfort and convenience features of its gas-counterparts. In the SL trim, leather upholstery and a rearview camera are included, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and an intelligent access key fob. The exterior looks sleek and stylish with its 17-inch alloy wheels and roof spoiler over the tailgate, which features a solar panel to help charge small devices in the car.
