I got a good deal on my Elantra gt hatchback. Jag was super nice and showed me everything about the cars I liked. Got a good car on my budget. Also all the staff were super nice. I highly recommend key west ford.
Went in looking for my first car, came out with an awesome deal today. Peter took the time and effort to help me out to make sure I got the car that I wanted. Michelle did a great job with the financing of the vehicle. Both of you two did an amazing job and I thank you for you help today!
Easy going, not pushy and personable
Allan was great! He knew that my wife and I were interested in purchasing a Pre owned vehicle and was instrumental in helping us find what we were looking for. He listened to our needs, instead of telling us what we wanted to hear. He was personable and friendly. We never felt pressured into purchasing something that didn’t fit our needs. I would highly recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for a great experience during a car search. His knowledge is second to none and his attitude is great!
Bought my first car today with, Jeff Upton. He answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect SUV. Michael Nokes was also there helping Jeff out and explaining what to look for in a used car and the pros and cons that come with it. Great to deal with, very friendly and kind,
Michelle and Nick helped me with financing and they were great, and patient with me. Answered all my questions and concerns with detail. Loved them, so kind and so friendly.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first major purchase!
Jag was super help full and well knowable of the cars
he did great job to explain everything and at the end help to set up Bluetooth and navigation system I am really thankful to Jag for this experience
Great service and for sure will come back afin
Great sales and communication
I bought a used 2016 mustang gt just recently from Lino. He was very helpful, friendly and answered all my questions. I also spoke in great length with Michael Nokes the sales manager. He was easy to get along with and a general overall nice guy. I would definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking for a brand new or used ford. Lino didn’t pressure me into buying that first day I arrived. You will feel comfortable dealing with him and Michael nokes.
Excellent service and follow through
We were window shopping for a new vehicle in the near future. Tom showed us exactly what we wanted and made the deal happen today. We are exceptionally happy with his service and would recommend friends and family go see him at Key West Ford!
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff that made it easy to decide on a vehicle. We are happy with the experience and would definitely recommend this dealership.
Change is a good thing
Best attention to my needs & very respectful 😊
Jag and the team are very hospitable. They all made me feel as tho’ I was their guest. I was lucky that they had exactly what I needed in the lot and I was given the best deal I could have hoped for. Thank you, Jag !

Records were made to be broken. This is the mantra that drives Nissan - with every milestone eclipsed and every profit boundary passed. Expectations should never be met but, instead, exceeded.
It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 Sentra has fully embraced this philosophy.
According to Nissan, the Sentra delivered exceptional sales last month - earning 25,123 total units. This easily surpassed the 2017 tally (21,960 total units) and yielded a 14.4% year-to-year increase. It also pushed the sedan’s annual numbers past 60,000 and set a pace for a record-breaking quarter.
What caused this sedan surge? The Kirkland team believes the Sentra’s economy proved impossible to resist - with its 1.8L four-cylinder engine delivering up to 29 MPGs in the city and 37 MPGs on the highway. The tight compression ratio (9.9:1) ensures effective fuel distribution, blending smooth direct ignition technology with continuously variable cam timing. A six-speed manual transmission allows drivers to control every gear ratio; while speed-sensitive electric-power steering offers crisp handling and reduces turn radius friction.
All of these elements combine to ensure class-leading economy - branding the 2018 Sentra ideal for pump-weary drivers.

With the big debut of the 2019 Altima at the New York Auto Show, all eyes are on Nissan as excitement grows for the automaker’s upcoming vehicle lines – especially their sedans. Industry watchers are a-buzz with chatter about an all-new Sentra making its way to the market next year – and now, it sounds like a strong possibility.
In a recent interview with Roadshow, Michael Bunce, Nissan North America’s VP of Product Planning, confirmed the company is already working on the next-generation sedan. "[The Sentra is] probably the vehicle where we have the most opportunity," he added, saying we'll see the new compact sedan sometime next year. "We have a lot of ground to make up there."
Little details – if any – are available about the anticipated 2019 Nissan Sentra, but with the recent launch of the re-designed Altima, one can hypothesize that it will carry over some of its most popular features, like its all-wheel drivetrain, sharp new look inspired by the Vmotion 2.0 concept, and a re-worked powerplant under the hood. Speculators also expect that the size of the Sentra will decrease, making it even more nimble and fuel-efficient than it already is.
At Kirkland Nissan, we have our ears to the ground in the hopes of hearing additional news about the next-gen Sentra. As we know more, we will share with you here on our blog. In the meantime, our inventory is stocked with 2018 models, which are available for test driving. To take one for a spin, call us today.
Power will no longer be confined to the track. Instead Nissan will bring it to the Seattle streets, delivering a mid-size experience like no other. The 2018 Sentra SR has arrived!
As JD Power explains, the 2018 Sentra SR will soon rev to the top of every chart - yielding unforgettable highway fun. Anchoring this sedan is a sprightly 1.8L DOHC four-cylinder engine, which produces up to 124 HP and 125 lb.-ft of torque. The redline soars to 6,000 RPM, while an efficient compression ratio (9.1:1) ensures maximum fuel distribution. An electronic drive-by-wire throttle enhances performance, blending an XTronic transmission with twin CVCTS exhaust valves; and a FWD smoothly maneuvers around every corner, utilizing Active Understeer Control to improve traction. This engages the tires as needed, applying increased pressure to the treads to deliver superior grippage.
When these features combine, they allow the 2018 Sentra SR to provide superior performance - with its 10-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels gliding through every mile.
Curious about the new Sentra? Contact our team today to learn more about this Nissan sedan - and don’t hesitate to request a test-drive in one of our current models.
Slide into something sleek this spring - with Nissan unveiling its 2018 Sentra SR to Seattle. This mid-size platform has been tailored for fashion fans, delivering a blacked-out fascia that will thrill from every angle. Prepare for the arrival of the Midnight Edition!
According to JD Power, the 2018 Sentra SR will prove impossible to ignore. Boasting an exclusive Midnight Edition package, this sedan will cut a chic line down the highway. The power side-view mirrors are now black-capped, while the V-Motion grille features dark chrome detailing. Recessed fog lamps feature shadowed bezels; a charcoal-colored spoiler anchors the rear; and the 10-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels impress, blending massive 18-inch frames with painted inserts.
The aptly named Midnight Edition package transforms the SR from sedan to showpiece, with its muscular body (192-inches long, 72-inches wide, and 58-inches high) perfectly complemented by custom accents. Three available fascia colors - Super Black, Gun Metallic, and Pearl White - further ensure a striking design. Embrace the dark side of driving!

The Sentra continues to be one of Nissan's top sellers and most recognized nameplates. It's a mainstay in the compact sedan segment spanning more than 35 years and seven generations. And, now, the 2018 Sentra is back, but with a number of enhancements designed to up its already strong consumer appeal, including a host of new safety technologies.
This includes Automatic Emergency Braking, which is now standard on all 2018 Sentra models equipped with Xtronic transmission. AEB uses radar technology to monitor a vehicle's proximity to traffic up ahead, providing audible and visual display warnings to help a driver reduce the car's speed if a potential frontal collision is detected. If the driver fails to respond, the AEB system can apply the brakes, helping to avoid the accident or reduce the speed of impact, if it is unavoidable.
In addition to AEB, the Sentra also comes equipped with standard safety and security features, including the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS). This provides drivers and passengers alike with a host of airbags and rollover sensors for extra front, side and head protection in the event of a crash. The compact sedan is also engineered with Zone Body construction, which absorbs impact energy, thus protecting the vehicle's occupants.
Enjoy excellent protection in a 2018 Sentra. To schedule your test drive, or compare pricing and specs, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington for more.
Life is all about compromise. Sedans weren’t designed to carry huge amounts of cargo or passengers and Seattle is just going to have to learn to live with that. That is, if we don’t include the delightfully spacious 2018 Nissan Sentra of course.
With a staggering amount of passenger volume throughout, the new Sentra is designed with you in mind (and your football player friend and his 3 teammates, too). At 42 inches of front leg room and 37 in the back, this car is perfect not only for the particularly large, but for those of us who like to stretch out and enjoy the cavernous luxury of a spacious vehicle. And did we mention the 54 inches of room between bodies in the back? Sardine-packed shoulders are a thing of the past (unless you’re ripping hairpin turns, but that part’s up to you).
Say you’ve got an especially awkward piece of equipment that seems like a sedan’s worst enemy: a bicycle, a surfboard, a ladder… Well, worry not! With 60/40 split fold-down rear bench, trunk volume skyrockets from 15 cubic feet all the way to the front seat. Oh wait, the passenger folds down too, meaning you can fit cargo in the new Sentra right up to the dash.
Contact Nissan today to see if you can hear your own echo inside the 2018 Sentra!

Nismo has been Nissan’s in-house performance division for almost 40 years, with their vehicles leaving a (literal) track record of innumerable accolades in their wake ever since. 2018 is almost upon us, and the second iteration of the Nismo edition Sentra is here. Striking the perfect balance between precision and panache, this vehicle delivers redline power to drivers on and off the racecourse—with a hefty side of style.
With its signature Nismo tuning that includes a stiffened frame and re-calibrated suspension, the 2018 Sentra is able to hug the road on hairpin turns and harrowing highway stretches alike. A 1.6-L Turbocharged engine growls beneath the hood of this vehicle, providing drivers with swift response and heart-pounding performance.
With a re-engineered grille, distinctive red fascias on the front and rear, and unique LED daytime running lights, the 2018 Nismo Sentra comes equipped with a fashion upgrade that transforms the raceway into a runway. Beautiful inside and out, the interior features scarlet-accented, leather-wrapped controls that indicate elegance and speed alike.

There’s no denying that what’s beneath the hood of the 2018 Nissan Sentra is enough to launch this tried-and-true commuter into a league all its own. This vehicle truly delivers to Seattle drivers a caliber of power typically reserved for speed demons and sports car enthusiasts only.
But enough idle chit-chat. We’ll let the stats help you decide. With a 1.6-L direct-injection engine capable of 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, expect tasks like passing on the freeway to seem like a simple walk in the park. With its exhaust-gas recirculation system and low-inertia turbocharger, the Sentra is able to maintain this impressive agility without strain.
Equipped with Nissan’s Xtronic® CVT transmission, the 2018 Sentra is capable of hitting an extremely wide range of gear ratios— suited for, say, a tricky grade that's too steep for 3rd and too shallow for 4th. What’s more, the system provides some of the smoothest shifting ever, with no drop in power whatsoever between speeds. Not to mention a setup like this keeps mileage at a comfortable combined 29 mpg. An efficient engine is a happy one!
