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!

This year’s Altima was a wonderful choice by Autotrader (if we may say so). The publication explains that they were impressed by the upscale interior, which gave the feeling that they were driving a more expensive car. Also notable was the traction offered by all-wheel drive, as well as the VC-Turbo variable compression engine. The first production engine of its kind, it intelligently provides more power on demand or scales back and improves efficiency when you move to cruising speeds.
The Autotrader editors had this to say: “Every car on this list is completely redesigned or an all-new model for this year. They all bring something fresh and innovative compared to their competitors and all have some combination of impressive tech, surprisingly good driving dynamics, strong value or just getting the details exactly right.”
Bear in mind that the standard 2019 Altima—starting at just $24,000—comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an eight-inch color display. Further, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat makes it easy to slide into the optimal driving position, and features such as Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning keep you safe.

Earlier this year (March 7-10, 2019) car enthusiasts gathered at the 24th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida for a weekend of all things automotive, including a chance to ogle vintage classics like the 1957 Ferrari 355 S and the 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K Autobahn-Kurier.
For those who want to actually own a car though, the big news from the show was that Automobile Magazine chose the newly redesigned 2019 Nissan Altima SR 2.0 as one of its All-Stars.
"The Nissan Altima has undergone a transformation that elevated it to All-Star status," said Automobile editor-in-chief Mike Floyd. "It drives worlds better than before, is available with an innovative engine and a top-flight suite of safety features, and its clean interior layout pairs with a great-looking new exterior."
The editors were impressed with the 2019 Altima’s 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine, its fuel economy, and its suspension. As online editor Ed Tahaney said, “I was amazed and impressed. That VC-Turbo engine, used to less good effect in the Infiniti QX50 crossover, really is good for something, and this is it. Well played, Nissan.”
With a suspension that “punches well above its weight” and torque usually found only in much larger engines, the new Nissan Altima was the show’s sleeper.

According to a study by QuoteWizard, millennials are bucking the growing trend of SUVs and trucks and opting for the sedan segment. The online insurance comparison website recently dug into their data and found that automotive shoppers ranging from 22- to 37-years-old favor small to mid-size cars due to their affordability and urban-friendly characteristics.
As part of their study, QuoteWizard also compiled the top ten most popular cars driven by millennials. In the second spot was the Nissan Altima, which beat out other platforms, including the Toyota Camry and Ford Focus.
With a base MSRP below $24,000 for the 2019 Nissan Altima 2.5 S, millennials can tap into the on-road dynamics they crave without the burden of steep financing payments. This sedan was also recently redesigned this year to include available features like Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and ProPILOT Assist for a driving experience unlike any other. With a range of trim levels and engine options, sedan shoppers can literally customize the Altima to their liking to suit their budget, driving habits and lifestyle – which millennial doesn’t want that?

On the heels of the 2019 Nissan Altima’s redesign, we just received word that the sedan has been named one of Automobile Magazine's 2019 All-Stars at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.
Each year, the publication chooses the best new cars on the road; however, they don’t base their results on a complicated points system or evaluate vehicles within segment silos. Rather, winners are selected for their style, class, importance and desirability – simply, the crème-de-la-crème rise to the top and we are thrilled that the Altima is one of them.
Completely re-engineered from the ground up, the 2019 Altima now wears a sleeker appearance and offers drivers a choice of outstanding powertrain options, including the addition of Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive. Automobile Magazine evaluated the sporty SR trim with a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine and hailed the sedan for its composed handling, strong performance and attractive design. The editors were also taken by the Altima’s multi-faceted capabilities, which include the ability to produce the torque rating of a larger engine, but with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder. In their review, Automobile Magazine was impressed with the Altima’s confidence-inspiring suspension characteristics as well, which they describe as being above that of class rivals.

Following the release of the 2019 Altima, Nissan launched a “cool” new marketing initiative to celebrate the sedan’s available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Set inside a 40-foot snow globe, a chilly storm raged on, complete with a dynamic physical cityscape and an accompanying multi-sensory indoor winter experience to bring the story to life.
Visitors were able to enter the globe and see the all-new 2019 Nissan Altima in all its winter glory. Falling from the sky was actual snow, creating a magical scene perfect for photo ops, which were shared on social media using the hashtag #ImpossiblySmart. The virtual weather conditions also highlighted the sedan’s available I-AWD technology, which allows the Altima to adapt and redistribute power regardless of road conditions.
The 2019 Nissan Altima is available in five well-equipped trims (S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum) with a standard 2.5-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder direct injection engine for 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. An optional 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine with front-wheel drive is also available on Altima SR and Platinum grades. With the addition of all-wheel drive, sedan shoppers can finally benefit from the enhanced capability and handling that this new offering provides.
To experience the 2019 Altima for yourself, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a winter test drive.

The costs prove ever-soaring - with fuel stations gleefully greeting each weekend with new dollar demands, forcing you to empty your wallet with every spin of the pump. Economy is forgotten; savings are ignored; and frustration becomes your constant companion.
According to The Boston Herald, the new Platinum is bringing efficiency to Everett. Purring beneath the hood of this Nissan sedan is a responsive 2.5L four-cylinder engine - which promises 27 MPGs in the city and 37 MPGs on the highway. Direct-injection technology bolsters fuel sequencing, optimizing drop distribution; while continuously variable timing software maintains precise control over the 16 integrated valves, seamlessly improving air intake. An XTronic transmission eliminates costly down-shifting through its crisp automatic design; and Intelligent Cruise Control pairs with a front-wheel-drive to deliver smooth performance.
Through this, the Altima Platinum yields a combined MPG ratio of 31 - ensuring class-leading capability on the highway and at the pump. Don’t fret, though, Everett: this sedan will still provide sport-worthy speed, generating a spirited 188 HP and 180 lb.-ft of torque.
The 2019 Altima is ready to impress. To learn more about this efficient sedan contact our team today!
This is no smooth road. Instead it rocks and rolls - with pot-holes scattered across it, the pavement proving brittle. You wince with the wild miles, feeling every shake of a suspension; and your stomach lurches with each jerky steering motion. Your car isn’t meant for such conditions.
According to the NY Daily News, the 2019 Altima proves ready for even the roughest commutes - delivering Active Ride Control to Kirkland. This exclusive Nissan technology enables drivers to more effectively navigate each mile, automatically compensating for sudden pitch changes. Body-mounted sensors assess the car’s trajectory, identifying roll-rates and fore-aft motions. Torque application is also carefully monitored; and, should a sudden increase in performance metrics occur, the system will engage: activating the dampers and enhancing overall ABS pressure.
Through this simultaneous suspension adjustment, the Active Ride Control system promotes refined handling. It decreases vehicle pitch, stabilizing each rev; and it subtly shifts power between the wheels, assuring a smooth distribution of traction. This greatly reduces the effects of fickle terrain and allows the Altima to glide across the pavement, unhindered by even the worst pot-holes.
Active Ride Control proves essential for those facing frantic commutes. To learn more about this system - or to schedule a test-drive in the 2019 Altima SR - contact our team today.

Great news, Nissan Altima fans! The all-new, sixth-generation sedan was recently named a Motor Trend Car of the Year Contender – an annual honor given by the magazine to recognize the best new or significantly refreshed cars in a model year.
Redesigned for 2019, the next-gen Altima sets a new standard for Nissan sedans by offering ProPILOT Assist technology, two new engines and the first available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive on the automaker’s car line-up in the United States. These additions are key to the Altima’s recognition by Motor Trend.
ProPILOT Assist is being offered as standard equipment on the 2019 Altima’s SV, SL and Platinum grades. It acts as a single-lane "hands-on" driving assistance technology that eases a motorist’s workload by reducing the amount of acceleration, steering and braking input under certain driving conditions. It is complemented by Rear Automatic Braking, which detects stationary objects when in reverse and applies the brakes (if necessary) to avoid a collision.
Under the hood, the 2019 Altima comes with the choice of a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine (with 248 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque) or a 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine (rated at 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque). The latter powerplant is equipped with the new Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, offering year-round handling confidence, no matter what Mother Nature throws our way.

Chrome matte finishes define the hard-surface materials, emphasizing the dash’s lean lines; while genuine wood detailing punctuates the doors and side consoles. Leather-trimmed seating (complete with available pinstripe stitching) delivers a supple effect, pairing perfectly with the soft-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob; and custom floor mats add plush texture to every mile.
To further delight Puyallup fashion-fans, the 2019 Altima also boasts ambient lighting software. With the push of a button bathe the interior in striking colors - with illuminated entry kick-plates and strategically-positioned wells delivering shades of blue, orange, and more.
