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.

If you are in the market for a new all-electric vehicle, but are basing your decision solely on the brand with the most established reputation, then look no further to the 2018 Nissan Leaf SL. This EV has been on Seattle’s roads since 2011 and quickly earned itself a top spot on the sales charts. Just this year, an all-new next-gen version of the Leaf was unveiled, bringing with it a more powerful electric powerplant and increased range.
The 2018 Leaf SL is anchored by a 40-kWh laminated lithium-ion battery hidden under the cabin floor, which generates power to the high-response 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor. Together, this allows the EV to produce a remarkable 147 horses and 236 lb-ft of torque, which is more robust than past models. The driving distance increased as well, netting motorists an EPA-estimated range of 150 miles.
Nissan also improved the EV’s design with a low, sleek profile that gives it a sharp, dynamic look. Familiar styling features also include the brand’s signature boomerang-shaped lamps and V-Motion flow in the front. The SL trim is appointed with outside heated mirrors with integrated turn signals on the exterior as well, along with leather-appointed heated seats in the cabin, which are six-way power for the driver. Safety features on this model include ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal technologies.
Upgrade your ride to the well-respected zero-emission 2018 Leaf. To learn more about this model, including pricing and specs, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for details.

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.

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.
