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!
very good service
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.

Are you considering an all-electric plug-in as your next vehicle, but prefer to buy preowned before committing to a new model? If so, a 2016 Nissan Leaf SV is a nice compromise. This zero-emissions EV will ease you into all-electric driving, while also offering great range and a host of high-tech features that you expect in a car.
The 2016 Leaf is powered by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which feeds the 80-kW electric motor to generate 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Compared to older model Nissan plug-ins, this EV can travel 27 percent farther with a total range of 107 miles. When it’s time to refresh the battery, the SV trim includes a 6.6 kW onboard charger, which will get you up and running in about five hours. For most Seattle commuters and errand runners, this is more than adequate.
Inside, the Leaf SV is decked out with some cool tech inclusions, like a 7-inch central touchscreen with navigation and a Nissan Connect EV telematics system, which remotely monitors your charging status. There’s also heated front seats and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel for your comfort, along with heated power sideview mirrors and a back-up camera for your convenience.
Transition into EV life in the most sensible plug-in possible. To schedule your test drive in a preowned Leaf, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

If you’re on a quest to reduce your carbon footprint and swap your commuter for something more efficient, consider a 2013 Nissan Leaf SV as your first plug-in vehicle. This preowned performer features an all-electric powertrain with zero emissions, making it a smart choice for eco-conscious Seattle drivers.
The 2013 Leaf is bolstered by a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which stores energy to generate the 80-kilowatt electric motor. It creates 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, which is quite potent for a first-generation plug-in vehicle. This equates to great on-road acceleration – in fact, in Edmunds performance tests, the Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in 10.2 seconds, which is almost segment leading. Range is respectable too, coming in at 75 miles on a single charge.
When it's time to refresh the battery, the SV trim is equipped with an upgraded 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which will have you up and running in less time (about four hours) compared to the base model. You can even track your EV’s charging status on the Leaf’s smartphone app. How cool is that? Additional standard features also include a 7-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, cruise control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror for your comfort and convenience.

If your search for an all-electric vehicle delivering exceptional range and a huge suite of driver assist features has led you to the 2018 Nissan Leaf SV, you’ve come to the right place. Re-designed this year, the world’s best-selling plug-in delivers more power, mileage and tech than ever before.
The 2018 Leaf is anchored by a 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor with front-wheel drive, which produces 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. The 40-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is tucked in nicely under the cabin floor, has been enhanced and now boasts a 150-mile range, allowing the Leaf to travel longer distances than previously. When it’s time to top up the battery, the standard 6.6-kW onboard charger will need about 40 minutes to re-charge to 80 percent (when using a 50-kW CHAdeMO DC fast charger). Long periods of downtime are now a thing of the past!
The SV trim is also chock full of high-tech equipment for even more comfort, convenience and protection on Seattle’s roads. This includes Traffic-Aware Cruise Control, which automatically senses vehicles in front of you and adjusts cruising speeds with the right amount of acceleration or deceleration. Nissan’s ProPILOT is also standard and uses autonomous driving technologies, which help to keep the Leaf centered and on-course.

Boasting 100 percent plug-in performance and great range, traditional fossil fuels will be a thing of the past with this EV as your chariot.
The 2015 Leaf SV gets its muscle from an 80-kW electric motor, which draws power from its 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this provides drivers with 107 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque, along with a range of 84 miles on a single charge. When you crunch the numbers, this equates to an EPA rating (MPGe) of 126 mpg city and 101 mpg highway or 114 MPGe combined. Amazing!

Does the idea of driving a vehicle with an alternative fuel source pique your interest? If so, a 2018 Nissan Leaf S might just be your next plug-in car. Known as the best-selling EV across the globe, the Leaf is super-efficient and boasts a longer range than previous model year options.
Under its aerodynamic exterior, the 2018 Leaf S is powered by a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which fuels the motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Combined, this allows the all-electric vehicle to operate a full 150 miles before needing to recharge, which is almost twice the distance as the first-gen model, which was unveiled seven years ago.
When it does come time to recharge, the 2018 Leaf uses a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger that will have you up and running to 80 percent power in about 40 minutes when using a 50-kw CHAdeMO DC fast charger. However, with a 240-volt Level 2 station, charging time will increase to about 8 hours, which is considered average for the segment.

If you are seeking a top-of-the-line preowned all-electric vehicle, consider giving the 2012 Nissan Leaf SL a closer look. Originally released in 2011, this zero-emissions car has grown to be one of the best-selling plug-in vehicles across the globe, delivering a spacious cabin, rich features and snappy acceleration to Seattle area drivers.
The 2012 Leaf runs on an 80-kilowatt electric motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Instead of using traditional fossil fuels, the motor is powered by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is where the Leaf gets its zero-emissions performance from. But, don’t worry – this doesn’t equate to weak on-road dynamics. Rather, in Edmunds performance tests, the Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in 10 seconds, which is equivalent to a subcompact hatchback with automatic transmission.
On a single charge, you can expect to receive a driving range of 73 miles, which is suitable for most local commuters. In terms of efficiency, that equals an EPA rating (MPGe) of 106 mpg city/92 mpg highway or 99 mpg combined. You can’t get that type of performance from a gas-powered vehicle!
Inside, the SL trim is absolutely loaded with cloth upholstery made from recycled materials, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, navigation, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface. On the exterior, the Leaf also boasts a spoiler-mounted solar panel, automatic headlamps, foglamps, and rearview camera to help you navigate busy parking lots. Now that’s great value!
