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.
Over and above
They were great. They did everything in their power to help us. They really know there stuff. They took the time to explain everything and answer all if our questions. They really want to make that we got everything we needed and more.
Honest and Trustworthy Dealership
There were a few hiccups that came along with our purchase of a pre-owned vehicle but I was impressed with how much effort was taken to remedy the situation and make sure we were feeling great about our purchase. The dealership really went above and beyond to get us in a vehicle that was safe and good quality!
Jeff was very attentive both on-site and through follow-up calls, addressing concerns, and doing everything in his power to remedy the situation. I would highly recommend working with Jeff who was easy going, enthusiastic, and kept the process very simple.
In the end, we are very happy with our new (to us!) vehicle and I'm glad we went through this journey with Key West Ford and Jeff.
This was one of the best experiences I have had at a dealership. Thanks to Jag, Nick, and Mike for their help getting me into a great vehicle.
Got my dream car with a very good deal
One of my best experience ever, staff is so kind , also deals are awesome. They helps me a lot to get my dream car within my budget. Big thanks to peter olson.
Honest and a pleasure to wok with.
I bought a used truck which needed a bit of service. Key West Ford did not hesitate to insure the truck lived up to what they promised.
Efficient and Courteous!
I moved to Vancouver from Toronto and was in need of a truck. Pete was able to source one that I was looking for from Alberta and had it delivered quickly and was very communicative in terms of delivery status throughout. He was even kind enough to send me some recommendations for places to go around New West with me being new to the area. Thanks Pete!
Nissan Features Glossary For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
Welcome back to our features glossary section, Tacoma and Kirkland residents! We often focus on one specific feature of a car or truck but today we’re going to zero in on two: the hitch mount and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto as seen in the magnificent 2019 Nissan Titan.
This pickup helps you get stuff done. Case in point: It comes with a hitch mount that will make life easier for anyone who’s active and looking to tow, say, a trailer or a recreational vehicle from time to time. The full-length, fully boxed ladder frame of this mighty truck is augmented by the aforementioned hitch, which in turn leads to the ability to tow as much as 12,710 pounds.
The 2019 Nissan Titan stands out when it comes to technology, too. This is no longer just a utilitarian machine—it has fancy doo-dads and electronic bells and whistles that make modern life on the road more convenient. This includes the option of either Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, resulting in the ability to access phone-stored apps, maps, contacts, and more.
Safety first! That’s a mantra we can all get behind when it comes to our automobiles, and Nissan certainly takes it to heart in the construction of their 2018 Altima. This car has two amazing technologies we wish to cover today: Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Predictive Forward Collision Warning.
Ever been worried about visibility as you reverse out of your driveway or parking space? (We’re going to take a wild guess and assume the answer to that question is “yes.”) Well, Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you detect if an automobile is approaching from behind or even to either side of your vehicle. Nifty, right?
The 2018 Nissan Altima also comes with Predictive Forward Collision Warning. This is a very advanced rare sensor that can help save your life. When you’re going own the highway, the sensor automatically judges the speed and distance of the car in front of you as well as the car in front of that one. If deceleration on their part occurs, your instrument panel will light up and you’ll be given an audible warning.
We hope you’re enjoying the weekend, Seattle and Kirkland residents! If you’ve been a bit restless and find yourself browsing car listings online these days, we think you may want to turn your attention to the 2018 Nissan Armada if you’re intrigued by the prospect of a big, powerful and intelligently decked-out SUV. It comes with a nifty feature for occupant safety—the Intelligent Rearview Mirror.
This Armada’s Intelligent Rearview Mirror has two modes: It can exist as a normal, glass rearview mirror but it can also toggle into the “intelligent” mode, wherein a LCD screen is activated. This display shows images fed in from a high-resolution video on the back of the SUV. In so doing, it enables you to see what’s going on behind you and to avoid collisions—it even comes with moving-object detection for pedestrians and animals!
The 2018 Nissan Armada can’t be summed up with an examination of just one safety feature, however. It is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine that generates a whopping 390 horses and 394 pound-feet of torque. This machine also offers smooth operation via a seven-speed automatic transmission. Further, NissanConnect’s inclusion enables hands-free operation via voice controls for its infotainment system.
Few of us really recall it, but there was a time when cruise control was seen as one of the pinnacles of technological prowess in an automobile. Fixing a set speed for highway travel was a big deal then—not so much now. So how does Nissan keep pace with their new machines like the 2018 Armada SL? Simple: with features like Intelligent Backup Intervention.
Intelligent Backup Intervention works in concert with the rearview camera to keep you safe. It kicks in whenever you put the car in reverse, using a variety of sensors to detect stationary objects behind your ride as well as crossing vehicles. A video feed is shown on the center console touchscreen so you can keep track of everything going on outside; further, if you do start to pull out into traffic, the technology can actually autonomously engage the brakes to help you avoid a collision.
Notably, Intelligent Backup Intervention isn’t the only thing the 2018 Armada SL has going for it. It’s wickedly powerful and comes packed with a 5.6L V8 that produces 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. of torque.

At CES 2019 this January, Ivan Espinoza, Corporate VP for Product Planning and Strategy at Nissan, described the three pillars of its Intelligent Mobility features: Intelligent Driving, Intelligent Power, and Intelligent Integration. Let’s take a look at the first of these.
Focusing on safety, control, and comfort, Intelligent Driving is designed to increase drivers’ confidence.
ProPILOT Assist, the hands-on system that alerts drivers to obstacles in front of their vehicles, will also keep you safely in your own lane and ensure you’re not tailgating on the highway. The obstacle features will automatically sound an alert, brake, and stop the vehicle if the driver doesn’t intervene.
Finding and paying for parking in crowded urban areas adds additional stress to the process itself. Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor gives you a 360-degree view of everything in the vicinity of your vehicle to ensure you don’t miss posts, signs—or other cars.
Nissan’s Blind-Spot Warning feature eliminates the small blind-spot visibility gaps of other systems and alerts you to everything in your blind spot, as well as helping you get back into your own lane to avoid an accident.
As Alex Hernandez says, “The company’s ultimate goal is achieving zero-emissions and zero-fatalities on the road. The[y] strongly believe that Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility is the way to achieve this.”

The Nissan Titan was one of only two full-sized pickup trucks to receive a “good” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when they conducted their latest tests on four-door pickups.
While the safety cages that are standard features on most cars and trucks do a great job in front-end collisions involving at least 40 percent of the front of the vehicle, when a smaller percentage of the front end is involved (25 percent), there have been issues, particularly with passenger-side collisions. The IIHS testing focused on passenger-side stats. These small overlap crashes involve just the front corner of the vehicle. IIHS has been rating driver-side front overlap collisions since 2012, but only began testing similar passenger-side fender-benders in 2017 to ensure equal protection for both sides.
There are four IIHS ratings: good, acceptable, marginal and poor.
"We commend Ford, Nissan and Ram for providing state-of-the-art crash protection for both drivers and front passengers of their large pickup models," says David Zuby, IIHS chief research officer.
Front-end collisions, especially if they involve fixed barriers like trees or hydro poles, tend to be more serious in pickups because of the weight of the vehicles.
Welcome back to our feature spotlight section, Kirkland! Today, we want to cover the amazing transmission inside the 2019 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo and the capabilities it lends owners.
Okay, you may have heard that many of Nissan’s modern vehicles come with something called a CVT. This stands for “continuously variable transmission” and means that any machine equipped with it benefits from super-smooth shifting thanks to effectively unlimited “gear ratios.” In fact, it’s smoother than even a traditional automatic! But with that said, what happens when you just want to have some plain ‘ole fun?
Well, the 2019 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo comes with a CVT that’s imbued with a manual shift mode. You can slide the shifter into the Ds position and then manually move it up and down to switch gears, mimicking “stick” shifting! This is fantastic for anyone that likes to go hands on. Plus, it’s a breeze to go back into automatic mode—just move the stick to D (Drive).
Happy Tuesday, Tacoma and Kirkland! In our previous post, we detailed forward collision warning in the 2019 Armada. It uses a sensor to detect the movement and traveling speed of the car(s) in front of you and beeps out a warning if you get too close. However, this fine Nissan model also comes with numerous other safety features that warrant discussion, so we wanted to return to the subject below.
This SUV is packed with intelligent cruise control. Like with forward collision warning, this system uses sensors to take traditional cruise control to the next level. If the car in front of you slows down, the technology uses “gap management” to keep a set distance between you and that vehicle by autonomously dropping or raising your cruising speed to match it. And even if you don’t have this feature activated, if things get hairy and you get too close, automatic emergency braking takes over and helps you avoid a collision.
The 2019 Nissan Armada also comes with rear door alert. It’s easy to place something in the back seat, get started on your journey, and then forget about it upon your arrival. That’s why the car comes with door sequence logic and industry-first multiple horn honks to remind you when you stop that you have gear in the rear. Smart!
Forward collision warning senses the movement of both the car directly in front of your own and the vehicle in front of that one. It elicits an alert if they abruptly slow down, helping you avoid a collision. This system works thanks to a sensor mounted on the fore of the auto that measures velocity and distance. Impressive stuff!
As mentioned, the 2019 Nissan Armada SL also comes with blind-spot monitoring. Contrary to forward collision warning, it senses when another car is approaching diagonally from behind. If this occurs, it signals to you via indicators either on the a-pillar or the side-view exterior mirrors. A noise and a flashing audible signal are both available to help you avoid merging into a parallel lane at an inopportune time.
The Nissan LEAF is an amazing machine in many regards. It’s fun to drive and, seeing as it’s all-electric, is wildly efficient. However, there are other sensational technologies on the 2019 model that are worth a close examination. Among these is the incredible e-Pedal technology.
The 2019 Nissan LEAF’s e-Pedal is a system that enables the use of driving with only one pedal as opposed to relying on two (the standard accelerator and brake pedals). This optional method of control lets you press down on the e-Pedal to gradually accelerate; conversely, if you release the pressure you’ll slow the car down. If you completely remove your foot from the e-Pedal, the regenerative brakes will fully kick in and the resulting friction will cause a complete stop.
With the LEAF's e-Pedal, the brake lights flick on every time you begin to release pressure, just as you’d expect. It’s possible to parallel park using only this one-pedal system; further, the e-Pedal is capable of stopping the car on an incline, too. Further benefits of this system include longer-lasting brake pads and improved driving range.
