Peter, Ben and Nick Helped me to Get My Dream Car!
Mustang has been my dream car since high school, finally got it owing to the help from Peter, Ben, and Nicholas.
I contacted several Ford dealers at the same time and Ben was the first one who replied to me. I was very surprised because it was 11 pm. At least I knew he cared about his business and wanted to get the sale. So I visited them first. Peter was really patient and knowledgable. He showed me all my options both new & used. I immediately knew what I exactly wanted after the first visit.
One thing I really appreciate is he was not pushy at all. I got to visit different dealers to see more options but eventually, I chose Key West because, of course, I love the car he recommended, also, Ben and Peter made me feel they will still be happy to help after selling the car to me, will not just simply ignore the aftersale service. Nick helped me to make the financing easy.
They care and they help. No more words, highly recommended!
We had the unfortunate need to have our van replaced due to an accident. Flynn had a replacement van in stock and we were back on the road very quickly. The van was ready on time as promised.
Buying used Ford F-150
We received great service from Peter and he gave us lots of time to make our decision on buying the right truck. He even got the price down a little for us.
Appreciate the value add
We appreciated the telephone information provided by Jeff Upton when we were inquiring about a used truck. We needed to determine whether it had the heavy duty towing capabilities that we needed. Jeff went out of his way to do some digging to determine the vehicle's tow capacity and he provided helpful information that we could use to assess other vehicles as we continued our search. That vehicle didn't work out but we subsequently came in to look at another and was served by Peter Olson. He did a great job on intro and test drive, and again, did some backchecking with Nissan to determine if this vehicle had a factory installed tow package. We felt that the negotiation and pricing was fair and we didn't get the high pressure sales tactics that I hate so much. When we came back to pick up the vehicle the next day, Peter had gone out of his way to have the tow hitch, which was really rusty, painted! A real value-add and a pleasant surprise. Nick was great to deal with for the contract signing, very pleasant.
Promised great service and delivered.
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.
My experience at Key West Ford
I will share here my experience with Key West Ford. I have spent more than 7 hours with Mr. Peter olson (salesman), he was incredibly patient with me, showed me more than 12 possibilities of vehicles (in my budget). After we pick some cars he took me to do 5 test drives with the vehicles what really helped me so much on my choice.
Today I just pick up my car at Key West Ford just all clean (little issues on the vehicle were fixed just as promissed to me) and with fuel only for me to drive. I would like to thank Mr Peter Olsen and Key West Ford Team.
Thank you so much.
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...
Interesting Nissan Facts For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
Did you know that Nissan used to produce automobiles for other brands? It’s true!
Back in 1934 when Nissan was still known as “Datsun,” the automaker began to build the Austin 7 under license with the Austin Motor Company. This early partnership would represent the greatest overseas licensing success of Austin’s 7 and was the beginning of Datsun’s international renown.
Later, in 1952, Nissan would enter into a separate legal agreement with Austin to assemble 2,000 of their machines from imported partially assembled sets for sale in Japan under the Austin branding. The partnership required Nissan to make all the necessary parts locally in three years; the company met that obligation easily. All told, Nissan produced Austins for seven years, during which time they had the rights to Austin patents. It was these patents that would bolster the development of the Datsun line of cars.
Although Austin itself still built their own cars for some time, by 1955, the Austin A50 was entirely manufactured by Nissan and marketed by the company in Japan with a 1489 engine. In total, Nissan would make 20,855 Austins from 1953 to 1959.
Nissan was really the result of the merger of a number of automakers. It all began in 1914 when Kenjiro Den, Rokuro Aoyama and Meitaro Takeuchi at Kwaishinsha Co. decided to build a passenger vehicle. Using the first letter of their last names, they named the 10-HP engine that powered the machine “DAT.” This word means “agile” or “lively” in Japanese—take note of this for later!
Also in 1914, Kwaishinsha Co. merged with the Lila Company. Then, five years later in 1919, three-wheeled-car producer Jitsuyo Jidosha Co. merged with the aforementioned entities, forming Dat Jidosha Seizo Co. And when in 1931 that company partnered with Tobata Casting Company to make Datson passenger cars (literally “son” of “DAT”), it wasn’t long before the moniker was altered to Datsun to represent the national symbol of Japan (the sun). For some of you older folk, you’ll remember Datsun cars well!
The final turn was when Tobata Casting teamed up with another manufacturer, Nihon Sanyo. This produced the Jidosha Seizo Company which was renamed “Nissan Motors” on June 1, 1934.

If you are a fan of video games, then you have probably heard of Gran Turismo. Back in 2017, PS4 released the Sport edition, and Nissan was thrilled about it. They were so happy that they decided to hook up the 2017 GT-R to an official DualShock 4 controller and drive it around a track.
The company brought in Jann Mardenborough, an experienced player, GT Academy winner, and Nismo athlete, to handle this racecar robot. With a helicopter capturing the run overhead, this impressive ride averaged 76 mph and hit a top speed of 131 mph. For safety purposes, two independent systems were put in place to cut the engine and apply full ABS braking in the event of interference from other radio frequencies.
This slick sports car underwent major modifications for this experiment. On the consumer end, the 2017 Nissan GT-R Premium has also received a bit of a facelift. A restyled dashboard and larger touchscreen make navigating through your entertainment options much easier. Shift paddles have been repositioned from the steering column to the actual wheel, and enhanced sound absorption makes for a quieter trip down the highway.

Have you heard the news? The 2019 Nissan Altima is continuing to turn heads wherever it goes. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who knows the automaker and its vehicles, but it’s worth noting nonetheless.
A recent report by the Charlotte Post indicates that the new Altima has “beefed up” and is now a very handsome sedan. They were impressed by what they called its solid build and handling prowess, too. The reviewer was thrilled with the “corporate” grille on the front of the vehicle, which came in a solid gray color on the SR model they tested. It gave the car a solid stance.
The assessment also noted the sleek, minimalist dashboard and the floating infotainment screen. The front seats were luxurious, wrapping riders in what the reviewer called “a cocoon of comfort.” All in all, the interior of the vehicle received hugely positive marks. It doesn’t get much better than that!
The engine is nothing to sneeze at, either. According to the review, the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine boasts 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. They appreciated its “nice, flat torque curve.” They also raved about the turbo version, a “beast” that puts out 237 horses with 267 lb-ft of torque.

One of the first things people tend to think about when purchasing a truck is how customizable it is. That’s why Nissan has released the new 2018 Frontier in a range of eight different colors. You should be able to find one that suits your personality just right!
If you are looking for a classic ride, Magnetic Black or Glacier White would be your best bets. These two options both age well over time and never go out of style. For something shiny, consider going for Brilliant Silver or Gun Metallic (Grey).
Arctic Blue is perfect for a calm, cool vibe, while Forged Copper is the bright orange shade that will have heads turning every time you hit the roads. You can even choose from one of two red hues: Lava and Cayenne. These radiant tones offer a more vibrant, spicy feel.
The 2018 Frontier SV is designed with a four-door crew-cab body style that features a 5-foot bed. The spray-in liner helps to prevent scratches, and the cargo tie-downs keep lightweight objects in place.
