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!

Nissan Electric Vehicle News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington

If you’ve been pouring over online reviews about preowned all-electric vehicles, you may have come across complaints about poor range and extended charging times. But, don’t let these assessments steer you away from the segment – zone in on the Leaf EV instead.
Since its release in 2011, Nissan has been perfecting its best-selling plug-in vehicle with each model year. And for 2013, the automaker made some smart enhancements to the Leaf, allowing it to go farther and charge faster than earlier versions.
One of the key improvements to the 2013 Leaf is that it was engineered with an available 6.6 kW onboard charger, which cuts the 220V’s charging time in half to just four hours. For commuters, this is especially important since it allows them to refresh the EV’s battery while at work and have it ready for the drive home.
Nissan also improved the Leaf’s aerodynamics, allowing airflow to travel up and across the low compact hood, pass over the car’s shoulders and exit via the large rear spoiler. The result is less drag and better efficiency, which allows the Leaf to achieve 15 percent more range, totalling 84 miles on a single charge.
It drives beautifully too, with a whisper-quiet operation that Seattle drivers love. To experience it for yourself, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan to learn more about the 2013 Leaf SV today!

Are you ready to say farewell to expensive gas station visits and regular oil changes? If so, consider the 2017 Nissan Leaf S as your next enviro-friendly car. This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs solely on battery power, while delivering a smooth and composed ride with an especially roomy interior.
Pop the hood on this preowned sedan and you won’t find an engine, but a charging port that juices up the 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It is responsible for powering the 80-kW electric motor that generates a healthy 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. According to The Car Connection, this performance allows the Leaf to reach 60 mph in just 10 seconds, which is quite quick for a plug-in car. As you drive around the streets of Seattle, Newcastle and Puyallup, you’ll also enjoy a whisper quiet cabin from the electric powerplant.
Inside, the Leaf dishes up a surprising amount of stretch out space since there isn’t a gas tank occupying the rear of the vehicle and the battery is tucked underneath the floor. With room for five passengers, all occupants will enjoy nice leg room with 42.1 inches in the front and 33.3 inches in the back. There’s also 23.6 cubic feet of cargo room with all seats in place or 30 cubic feet with the second row folded down.
The 2017 Leaf S is a fantastic preowned choice for Seattle drivers. To learn more, contact Kirkland Nissan to schedule a test drive today.

Does the thought of driving an all-electric vehicle give you range anxiety? Do you have fears of being stranded on the side of the road with a dead battery? Take a deep breath – the 2018 Nissan Leaf S is here to quell all of your worries. New and improved for this model year, the EV now offers an extended range, allowing you to go farther than ever before.
The 2018 Leaf S is energized by a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which powers the motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Combined, this lets the plug-in vehicle run for 150 miles before needing to recharge, which is almost double the distance of the first-generation Leaf that was released in 2011.
When it does come time to refresh the battery, the 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger will have you up and running to 80 percent power in about 40 minutes when using a 50-kw CHAdeMO DC fast charger. However, if you are using a 240-volt Level 2 station, charging time will increase to about 8 hours, but many drivers use this time to juice up the battery overnight. By morning, you’ll be ready to tackle your busy commute with confidence – nothing is going to slow you or your EV down.
Curious to see how it handles on Seattle’s city streets? Contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for your test drive in an all-new 2018 Leaf S.

Right off the lot, this is an affordable option offering immense value from its many high-tech features, plus it boasts an 84-mile range, which is sure to get you to the office and back.

If you’ve been skeptical about the drivability and range offered by an all-electric vehicle, consider giving the 2016 Nissan Leaf SL a try. This eco-friendly option is fully battery powered and boasts a 107-mile range, which is more than adequate for commuting or booting around Seattle, Washington.
Under its stylish exterior design lies an 80-kW motor, which generates power from the Leaf’s 30 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this allows the EV to deliver 107 horsepower and 187 lb of torque, and it can reach 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds flat.

Do you have exciting summer day trips planned, but are on a modest budget? If so, consider a preowned 2015 Nissan Leaf S as your getaway car. This plug-in performer is not only cost-effective to purchase and own, but its all-electric powertrain eliminates the need for expensive gas station visits, making it an affordable vehicle to drive around the PNW.
Pop the “hood” and you won’t find a gas-powered engine in the Leaf, but a charging port that juices up the 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack.

Whether you are driven by eco-friendly ideals or are wanting to slash your monthly gas expenses, a preowned 2013 Nissan Leaf SL can help you achieve both. This plug-in performer runs solely on electricity and produces zero-emissions, making it a sensible choice for cost- and earth-conscious consumers in Seattle.
