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 !

With no lack of spectacular cars on display, every enthusiast, motorhead and tuner knows that Monterey Car Week is the holy grail of automotive events. Each summer, the festivities take place at the famed Laguna Seca/Weathertech Raceway, featuring over 500 historic race cars at its Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. It’s one of the Monterey Car Week’s most popular events, but this year it is even more special.

PSIs, over-inflation, under-inflation – does thinking about proper tire pressure make your head spin? For most drivers, this is a fact. But, not following your vehicle’s recommended inflation guide can lead to serious issues, like poor fuel economy or premature tire wear. Over time, these concerns can cost you a great deal.
1.Apply the parking brake, put the vehicle in park, and turn the ignition to accessory mode (the engine should be turned off).
2.Start filling a tire with air and wait for the exterior lights to flash, which indicates that the Easy-Fill Tire Alert is monitoring the change in air pressure.
3.When the correct tire pressure is reached, the Altima’s horn will sound.
4.If you accidentally over-inflated the tire, the horn will honk again and the hazard indicator will flash three times.
Neat, right? The Altima’s Easy-Fill Tire Alert is another fine example of the many technologies that are part of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision and how cars are powered, driven and integrated into our society.
To learn more about this ground-breaking technology and how it can improve your ownership experience, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington today.
Embrace the dark side of performance - with Nissan bringing the 2018 Frontier Midnight Edition to Washington. This pick-up defies all half-ton conventions, trading dull lines for pure drama; and drivers will find themselves impressed by every angle.
As Farm Forum explains, the 2018 Frontier Midnight Edition delivers a bold design to Federal Way. An athletic stance is earned through 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, which boast six-spoke styling and wide fork detailing.

Glossy black struts anchor the grille, complemented by mesh inserts and custom badging; the side-view mirrors and door handles are charcoal-capped; and dark step rails highlight the lean cab proportions (206-inches long, 73-inches wide, and 70-inches high). Silver accents also define the tailgate, drawing attention to the rear spoiler and splash guards.
The 2018 Frontier Midnight Edition is available in three dynamic colors - Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Glacier White. Each is perfectly contrasted by satin-finished chrome and LED lighting.

The statistics prove staggering - with the number of vehicular heatstroke deaths for children jumping from 5 in 1990 to 43 in 2017. Despite warnings from critics and consumer watch groups, these incidents continue to plague the country; and families suffer tremendous losses from an all too simple mistake.
Nissan wishes to ensure that no child is forgotten - which is why it intends to standardize its Rear Door Alert system by 2022.
According to Value Penguin, Nissan is bringing safety to the Tacoma market - by fusing its entire fleet with advanced notifications. Within the next four years the brand will counter all incidents of heatstroke-related injuries and fatalities, ensuring that parents can instantly identify whether their children are still inside the car before walking away. This system will:
One: Monitor the opening and closing of the rear doors via intuitive sensors.
Two: Recognize if the rear doors aren’t re-opened upon arriving at a destination.
Three: Release a series of audio cues (including digital beeps and horn engagements) to warn drivers of their potential error.
Through this parents will be immediately reminded of precious cargo left in the back-seat - with Nissan’s fleet (including the Sentra, Altima, and Armada) assessing all entry and exit patterns. Safety is assured.

As a parent, your attention is pulled in a million different directions. You have deadlines looming at work, forgotten dinner ingredients to pick up at the store, and emails and phone calls to return. Not to mention, your kids have lessons to be shuttled to and from, and your aging parents are hopeful for a visit. Moments of forgetfulness happen, but they can also prove dangerous. Thankfully, Nissan has your family’s safety in mind.
Just the week, the automaker announced that they will be making their Rear Door Alert technology standard equipment on all four-door trucks, sedans and SUV nameplates by 2022. This safety feature is designed to remind drivers to check their back seat for children and pets in an effort to reduce potential heatstroke incidents.
Rear Door Alert works by using a series of distinctive honks as the driver walks away from the vehicle. According to their press release, Nissan is the first automaker to use a beeping horn as an alert for this type of feature.
This smart technology was created by two Nissan employees – Elsa Foley, an industrial engineer and mother of two young children, and Marlene Mendoza, a mechanical engineer and mother of three. "The idea was inspired when I accidentally left a pan of lasagna in the back seat of my car overnight," said Mendoza. "The worst thing was the car smelled for days, but it made me ask myself, 'What if I left something far more important back there?'” Amazing how a simple mistake can lead to the creation of a life-saving safety feature.
Rear Door Alert is currently offered on the 2018 Pathfinder, which is available for purchase now. To experience this technology for yourself, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington for a test drive.

The all-new Nissan Leaf NISMO launched in Japan yesterday and industry insiders and EV fans have been buzzing with chatter about the vehicle’s sporty looks and higher performance. It has many hoping to see one on North American soil soon; but, that hope is far-fetched since Nissan doesn’t have plans to roll-out the Leaf NISMO to international markets.
However, the automaker has released more footage of the all-electric supercar, giving fans a closer glimpse at its artful design and on-road performance. Have a look here:
The Leaf NISMO rides on sparkling 18-inch aluminum wheels, which have been custom-designed to limit air resistance, while the characteristic layered double wings improve the vehicle’s downforce without compromising drag coefficient. Inside, slick red accents and a sporty three-spoke steering wheel give the Leaf an athletic feel, along with the custom carbon and chrome finishes on the instrument panel.
Nissan also updated the Leaf NISMO’s ride quality with a custom suspension system, which has been tuned for comfort. An internal computer also allows for stronger acceleration responses, which is supported by an electric power steering system and Intelligent Trace Control for better stabilization while cornering.
Wish you could test drive the Leaf NISMO? We wish you could too. Alas, the closest experience you can get on Seattle ground is the 2018 Leaf. To schedule your test drive, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan today.
