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.

On the exterior, the Leaf offers heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals for those chilly mornings, as well as LED headlights and signature daytime running lights that won’t drain the battery.

A distinctive design, whisper-quiet zero-emissions performance and an especially roomy interior have all earned the 2017 Nissan Leaf serious acclaim from automotive journalists and drivers alike. If you haven’t test driven one, we suggest you check out the SL trim level, which boasts impressive range from its plug-in-powered motor.

Together, they generate 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, and can go 107 miles on a single charge. When it comes time to refresh the battery, the Leaf is equipped with a 6.6-kW onboard charger that can renew a fully depleted battery in about four hours from a 240-volt Level 2 charging station.
On the exterior, the SL trim boasts stylish LED headlights, which use little energy for illumination, and an aerodynamic body that reduces drag. Inside, the Leaf comes equipped with leather heated seats throughout, a NissanConnect 7-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity for your comfort and convenience.

Owning a vehicle comes with a lot of costs – there are the usual suspects like financing and insurance fees, as well as regular maintenance and repairs. Add in rising fuel prices and it can feel like your pay check disappears before it even hits your bank. And, if you are driving an older model year gas guzzler, it certainly might!
Instead, why not consider a preowned all-electric vehicle, like a 2015 Nissan Leaf SL? This battery-powered performer will not only excite you with its range and smooth performance, but it will also eradicate expensive gas station visits for as long as you own the car.
The 2015 Leaf runs on a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery, which sends electricity to the 80 kW AC synchronous motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. Charging is managed by a 6.6-kWh charger, which restores a fully depleted battery in four hours when a 240-volt Level 2 charging station is used. DC quick-charging is also optional, which lets you recharge the battery to 80 percent of capacity in about 30 minutes at more than 500 CHAdeMO sites nationwide. The range on the 2015 Leaf SL is rated at 84 miles and will only cost you a few dollars in electricity costs – less than your daily premium take-out coffee.

A distinctive design, silent operation and a roomy cabin make the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL unlike any other vehicle on Seattle’s roads. If you’ve been thinking of slipping into something more efficient, consider test driving a preowned model at Kirkland Nissan.
Powered by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor, the 2017 Leaf produces 187 lb-ft of torque without a single drop of gasoline. This EV draws its energy from a 30-kwh battery, which is neatly tucked under the cabin’s floor, and can be recharged from a fully depleted status within five hours using a 240-volt plug. All told, this will net you 107 miles of range or about $3 in charging costs. Expensive gas station visits are history with this plug-in as your eco-friendly chariot.
The Leaf’s sleek body is aero-driven in order to maximize efficiency, while the hatchback design offers acres of rooms inside the cabin. The back seat offers ample stretch out space for two adults (or three in a pinch), thanks to its 106.3-inch wheelbase. Even the Leaf's cargo area is deeper than you might expect, boasting 30 cubic feet of haulage with the rear row folded down or 23.6 with it in place.
Range, efficiency and versatility are the hallmarks of the 2017 Leaf SL. To see if this EV might be the one for you, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive.

If you’ve been wanting to switch from your traditional gas-powered vehicle, but have been wary about the range of an all-electric vehicle, allow us to turn your attention to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-in performer combines advanced battery technology with an aerodynamic design to achieve a 107-mile range on a single charge, which is considered the best in its class for the 2016 model year.
The Leaf zero-emissions EV is fuelled by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor that powers the front wheels to produce a healthy 187 lb-ft of torque. It draws its energy from the lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted under the cabin floor. This 30-kwh battery is where the Leaf gains its admirable range from. Previous model years were equipped with a 24-kwh battery that was only capable of offering double-digit range, which wasn’t practical for some drivers.
Efficiency on the SV model rings in at 112 MPGe or about $3 per charge, according to The Car Connection. With no need for gasoline, expensive fill-ups will be history and you’ll significantly reduce your carbon footprint as well.
