Buying my first car

I visited key west to look at a used truck. Peter was very nice and fixed any problems with the truck so it would be safe and reliable for me, as well as suggested I contact him with any questions and concerns. I would definitely go back because of how nice and reasonable the staff were.

Pleasant experience with sales staff.

Buying a new (or near-new) vehicle can be a stressful experience. However, salesman Robert Klaus was very helpful and treated me fairly. They offered me a very reasonable amount for my trade-in and the financing and insurance arrangements were seamless. The vehicle was detailed and was ready to be driven home in less than an hour. I would recommend Key West to a family member or a friend.

2019 Ford Mustang 201A Package

I bought the car before Christmas 2018. Peter helped me through the super easy and smooth process which was then passed on to Michelle, who did the rest of the transaction. I was very excited to have such car because of comfort, style, and the speed. Not to forget the loud engine as if there’s a war on the road when driving a mustang. I don’t have to elaborate into specifics but I love the car. After the transaction, Peter guided me through the technology, seats and modes of driving. Also, he didn’t promise me anything but before the day of purchase, I asked Peter some favours. One of them is the “key west ford” logo on the rear of the vehicle that I didn’t want to have. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the customer service that Peter provided. Sadly, I lost the car due to an accident which I’m not at fault. I only had the car for less than 7 months but moving on, I look forward on talking to Peter for another brand new mustang!

We like to browse without being pursued, first point given to Jag Dhillon for simply saying, hello I am Jag, is there anything i can help you with. We like space when i shop, and Jag picked up pretty quick, how our personalities worked, and let us come to him with questions on our terms. The end result, we bought a car from him, he was most helpful in answering questions, as well as sharing knowledge.. i would definitely recommend buying a car from Jag Dhillon at Key West Ford. Our, new to us, preowned mini cooper roadster was a great deal, and i feel like the care we got was authentic. Great job!

buy a nissan in kirklandSup, Robert!



Quick question: I’m a little concerned about the temperature gauge in my 2012 Nissan Titan. On a trip yesterday, it read a little high as I was returning home at the end of the day. I haven’t had the need to take the truck out today but figured I’d get your thoughts ahead of potentially having it looked at.

Thanks, Bill

Bill,

Thanks for checking in—and it’s fantastic that you already plan on having your 2013 Nissan Titan checked out! As you know, high-temperature readings are nothing to sneeze at, as the underlying issue may be, quite frankly, catastrophic if not attended to. Here are a few of the most likely issues:

  1. Your thermostat may simply be malfunctioning/failing! In this case, you’re off the hook. The truck itself is fine and operating normally—you’re just getting a false temperature reading. This can be fixed up in a jiffy with a coolant temperature switch replacement.
  2. Your water pump or water pump gasket may be on its way out. This, of course, would necessitate a more significant repair.
  3. Your pickup may be leaking coolant. Keep in mind that even a slight leak can have a profound effect, so check your coolant level and/or look under your pickup to determine if there’s a leak.
  4. Your Titan’s engine may be overheating.
We recommend taking your truck in immediately just in case, Bill. Call us with any further questions!
new 2018 nissan versa for sale in bellevue washingtonHi Robert,

My 2018 Nissan Versa has been shaking a lot on the highway recently, and I don’t know why. My friend said that it’s because the wheels are out of balance: what do you think?

Thanks,
Jenna

Hi, Jenna!

From how you’ve described the issue, it sounds like your tires on your 2018 Nissan Versa could be out of balance. This is something you should take care of sooner rather than later.

If your Versa starts to shake when traveling at around 60-70 mph this is often a sign that one or more of your tires are out of balance. Although, other things could provoke this issue with your car.

As tires get older, they tend to change their shape which puts them out of balance. This can be caused by various factors including wear and tear on your front-end parts, and your driving style.

To fix this problem, weights are placed on both the inside and outside rim planes. This process is what balances your tire.

My advice is to visit our Service Department and let the Technicians inspect your vehicle.

Thanks for your question, Jenna! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington again if you need anything else!

buy a Nissan Titan in KirklandRobert,

So, I know my 2011 Nissan Titan is getting a little long in the tooth and figured I’d ask ahead of time. If the check engine light comes on, what’s the most likely issue? Trying to plan/budget for repairs in advance, if possible.

Thanks, Sterling

Sterling,

Great question! Sadly, it’s difficult to pin down one “most likely” issue related to your check engine light. Keep in mind that, surprisingly, your 2011 Nissan Titan’s warning light may come on simply because of a loose gas cap, so be sure to check that first before freaking out—it’s far from uncommon. If it’s not your gas cap, though, there’s a deeper issue afoot. Here are some likely possibilities:

  1. Malfunctioning Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). This occurs when the unit that monitors engine airflow is damaged due to malfunctioning O2 sensors, spark plugs, the catalytic converter, etc. The result may be a drop in fuel efficiency.
  2. Malfunctioning Oxygen (O2) sensor. Specifically, if this sensor becomes damaged, not only will engine efficiency drop but the spark plugs and or catalytic converter are likely to become an issue.
  3. Faulty spark plugs/wires. If either the spark plug wires or the plugs themselves become worn, the catalytic converter may become clogged and overall engine performance will take a hit.

Note, Sterling, that a mechanic can use your car’s diagnostic port to determine the exact issue. Ring us today with any further questions!
new 2018 nissan titan xd for sale in bellevue washingtonDear Robert,

I’ve noticed that there's a squeaking noise coming from my 2018 Nissan Titan XD when it’s warming up. I can sometimes hear it while I'm driving: do you know what’s causing it?

Thanks,
Darren

Hi, Darren!

It sounds like there might be a problem with one of the engine belts in your 2018 Nissan Titan XD.

If you hear a high-pitched squeal when warming up and while driving it’s often due to a problem with the vehicle’s serpentine belt. This component is more than likely worn out or loose on your 2018 Nissan Titan XD. 

If this is the issue with your truck, it will only get worse over time. When the belt starts to break, you will hear a flapping sound as it strikes other components under the hood.

Unless you take care of the issue, the serpentine belt will eventually fail completely. When it does, you’ll lose your vehicle’s power steering, alternator, and air conditioner. Of course, this is one of the last things you want to happen while you're driving. 

My advice is to call down to our Service Department and let the Technicians inspect your vehicle.

Thanks for your question, Darren! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington again if you ever need anything else.

new 2018 nissan kicks for sale in bellevue washingtonDear Robert,

It feels like the brakes are dragging on my 2018 Nissan Kicks. There is constant resistance, even after I release the pedal. My friend thinks there might be a problem with the hoses: could he be right?

Thanks,
James

 
Hi, James!

A lot of issues may cause your 2018 Nissan Kicks’ brakes to drag but your friend could be correct. Having a problem with one or multiple hoses could be to blame.

If a hose or line is pinched or kinked, pressure can become trapped in it after the brake pedal has been released.

When you apply the brakes, the pressure is high enough so that it can bypass the kink in the line. But, as you let off the pedal, the master cylinder can’t supply enough force to push the fluid back.

Over time, this will wear out your brake pads and rotors. It will also cause your Kicks’ gas mileage to fall. My advice is to bring your vehicle down to our Service Department at your earliest convenience and let our Technicians inspect it.

Thanks for your question, James! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington again if you ever need anything else.

new 2019 nissan rogue for sale in bellevue washingtonDear Robert,

My father noticed one of my 2019 Nissan Rogue's tires is bald and said that it's dangerous to use. Why is it so bad to drive with the rubber in this condition?

Thanks,
Sarah

If one or more of the tires on your 2019 Nissan Rogue’s becomes bald, you should consider it dangerous to drive. This is especially true when it’s raining.

Bald tires have less grip meaning they’re more prone to under steer. So if you take a corner too quickly, you could run wide.

Since the rubber has already worn away so much, tires in this condition are far more susceptible to blowouts. This is especially true on long highway trips.

The thread on your rubber kicks out water as it passes over it. For this reason, bald tires are extremely susceptible to hydroplaning. When this happens, you completely lose control of your vehicle: of course, this is dangerous.

You should change your Rogue’s tire as soon as possible and avoid driving in the rain at all costs.

Thanks for your question, Sarah! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington if you ever need anything else.

new 2019 nissan sentra for sale in bellevue washingtonDear Robert,

I was out in my 2019 Nissan Sentra during heavy rain yesterday and nearly lost control. Do you have any advice on how to drive under these weather conditions?

Thanks,
Amy

 
Hi, Amy!

I’m sorry to hear about your mishap yesterday. There are a number of driving techniques you can use to keep you and your 2019 Nissan Sentra safe.

The number one thing to do when it’s raining is slow down. On top of this, everything from accelerating to applying the brakes and turning should be done gently and progressively.

Avoid any standing water which has built up on the road, as this could cause you to hydroplane. You should also try to drive in the tracks made by the car ahead of you, as this part of the road will have more grip.

If it's raining, you need to leave a lot more distance between you and the car in front of you. A good tip is to use “only a fool breaks the two-second rule”: say this once when the road is dry and twice in poor weather conditions.

Thanks for your question, Amy! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington again if you ever need anything else.

2016 Nissan Frontier for sale kirkland bellevue washingtonHi, Robert

I’ve had my 2016 Nissan Frontier for a couple of years now. I know it’s sometimes good to get your car’s engine checked outside of service intervals, but I’m not sure when.

Thanks,
Rachael

Hi, Rachael!

This is a fantastic question which isn’t asked often enough. Newer, fuel injected vehicles, like your 2016 Nissan Frontier, don’t need to be checked nearly as much as pre-injection cars. But, if your car is displaying any of the problems below, it’s time to head to a mechanic.

If your Frontier is stalling a lot, this could indicate that there’s a problem with the spark plugs or that an electric sensor needs to be adjusted. When your car gets harder to start there can be an issue with the battery, fuel pump, or ignition system. Another thing, which is often overlooked, is an engine which is running rough when idling or under acceleration. This may be caused by a number of things, so it’s best to get a professional to have a look.

If you’re worried about anything I have mentioned above, call into our Technicians at Nissan Kirkland’s Service Department located in Seattle, Washington.

Thanks for your question, Rachael! Do contact us again if you need anything else.
2017 nissan juke for sale kirkland bellevue washingtonHi, Robert

I was riding with a friend recently and his brakes failed. Thankfully, we were okay, but it was a scary experience. Can you tell me what would cause this to happen on my 2017 Nissan Juke?

Thanks,
Jack

Hi, Jack!

I’m sorry to hear about your experience but happy both you and your friend are okay. A number of things could cause the brakes on your Juke to fail.

Often there will be a gradual decrease in performance. But, if your pedal just drops and you feel no pressure, this would indicate that there’s a lack of fluid in the system. This could result in you having no braking force at all. For obvious reasons, this is very dangerous and you should call for assistance immediately.

If you tend to ride your brake pedal when driving or use it in a very sharp manner, it could cause the discs to overheat. This would result in a lack of stopping power which would get worse over time. Finally, since your car stops by means of friction, any lubricant that comes between your pads and rotors would reduce your ability to slow down. If you notice this, check around your tires for an oil leak or excessive grease.

Stay safe out there, Jack! Don’t hesitate to contact Nissan Kirkland again or call into our dealership in Seattle, Washington.


2018 nissan versa for sale kirkland bellevue washingtonHi Robert,

During a transmission-related debate, my friend pointed out that my automatic 2018 Nissan Versa would require more maintenance than his manual. Is this true and something I should be worried about?

Thanks,
Ben

Hi, Ben!

So, unfortunately, your friend is right. But it’s definitely not something which should put you off owning one. To get straight to the point, on average, automatics should be inspected every two to three years. You can add about another 12 months to those figures for manuals.

Oil is central to the operations of your Nissan Versa’s transmission, which means you really need to keep on top of changes. Apart from just lubricating, it powers the internal hydraulics and keeps everything cool. Over time, the fluid will become dirty and could result in shifting delays and eventually clog the whole system up.

When you’ll need to change your transmission fluid, in reality, depends on multiple factors – especially how much you drive. But, generally speaking, you may need to do it when you bring your car in for its 30,000-mile service.

Thanks for the question, Ben. Should any other debates arise, don’t hesitate to contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.
