My New Favourite Dealership!
My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a new SUV, and we ended up being helped by Rob Vanoverschot. I was nervous about going to a dealership as I'd never purchased off of a lot before - and Rob made the process a breeze! He answered all of our questions and never made us feel pressured at all! We test drove about 6 different makes and models and fell in love with a 2019 Ford Escape. I would highly recommend Rob and Key West Ford, even the financing department and insurance department made this process enjoyable!
Not to mention they had the best prices around - and we came all the way out from Abbotsford!
Great Kai and jag were awesome
Great. Worked with my schedual, very helpful. Got back to me fast about all my questions. And even went out a got a keepsake i forgot in my grade in.
Michael and Monina
The most seamless car buying experience with Peter Olson!
It was an awesome experience from the time we walked on the dealer lot to the time we drove home our car. Super friendly Ivan, super helpful Gurj and super salesman Peter!
Erick was very friendly and personable and it was a pleasure to do business with him. I would recommend him and Key West if you’re looking for a vehicle.
Happy with the Flex
Patient and Kind
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.

Great news, Seattle EV enthusiasts; we have more pricing news for you! Nissan has just released the MSRP for the 2019 Leaf and it is unchanged from the current 2018 model despite some new features being added to the forthcoming platform.
The 2019 Nissan Leaf starts at $29,990 for the base model, $32,490 for the mid-range SV trim, and $36,200 for the top-of-the-line SL grade. Destination and handling fees for all three ringing in at $895.
New for the 2019 model year is the addition of standard Rear Door Alert, which is an important safety feature that is designed to remind drivers to check their back seats for small children and pets to reduce potential heatstroke accidents.
Range on the 2019 Leaf still sits at 150 miles. In their press release, Nissan did note that a longer-range version will be available in the future, but little else is known for now. Some automotive journalists are speculating that news of a Leaf E-Plus will be released soon. According to the Torque Report, the E-Plus will have a driving range of around 225 miles, as well as a more powerful motor. As soon as we have concrete details, we’ll be sure to share them on our news blog.
In the meantime, our team at Kirkland Nissan is eagerly awaiting the release of the 2019 Leaf. Our inventory is stocked full of 2018 models – we’d love for you to stop in for a test drive to see why Seattle commuters love this EV!
Simplicity now proves standard - with Nissan pairing its 2019 Rogue SV with Android Auto connectivity. No longer will Renton riders fumble with tiny smartphone screens. Instead this SUV will yield seven-inch clarity, allowing for seamless interfacing and quick content streaming.
According to CarBuzz, the new Rogue boasts Android Auto capabilities. Now drivers can instantly sync their smartphone feeds and files, connecting directly to the central media console. Access thousands of custom applications via the Play suite, which displays social streams, accesses text messages, and even initiates high-definition video chats. Utilize natural-based voice commands to engage with the Google Search feature, while wireless Bluetooth links ensure quick connections to SiriusXM Radio. Take advantage of integrated Waze technology to optimize route planning (this system scans the roadways, instantly identifying worrisome traffic patterns and weather conditions); and control all music and podcast functions via the LCD touchscreen.
By adding Android Auto to the Rogue SV Nissan enables drivers to more effectively interface with their favorite content. Now popular programs - including Spotify, Pandora, and Audible - can be easily accessed, rather than having to struggle with smartphone keys.
To learn more about what this system offers contact our team today - and don’t forget to schedule a test-drive in the 2019 SV!

The 2019 Frontier is holding strong to its status as America’s most affordable pickup. Nissan recently announced pricing for the forthcoming model and it will feature the same starting MSRP of $18,990 as its 2018 predecessor. However, the similarities end there as the new Frontier now boasts more standard features, including a 7.0-inch color audio display touchscreen for the S and SV trims, and a fresh exterior color called Cayenne Red Metallic.
The 2019 model will also offer a Midnight Edition Package for those truck enthusiasts that want to inject more style into their Frontier. The kit is nicely-equipped with 18-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers, a gloss black grille, black badging, black door handles, semi-gloss black step rails, and black outside rearview mirrors. Consumers can choose from three exterior colors – Glacier White, Magnetic Black, and Gun Metallic.
The 2019 Frontier is offered in two body styles (Crew Cab and King Cab) with two driveline configurations (4×4 and 4×2) across five complete trims (S, SV, PRO-4X, Desert Runner, and SL).

According to a press release, the Nissan Group ended the summer off with a bang selling 112,376 units in August 2018, which is an increase of 4 percent compared to the same time last year. This gain was largely due to the Nissan Murano, which set a summer sales record, selling 9,619 units. Compared to last August’s 4,895 units, that’s an increase of almost 97 percent!
This isn’t the first time that the Murano has taken the charts by storm. In July, the crossover experienced an uptick, even though Nissan as a whole saw a 15 percent decrease in overall sales when compared to the same time last year.
So what’s all the fuss about, you ask? Why are crossover shoppers congregating to the Murano? It’s the vehicle’s enhanced feature set.
For 2018, Nissan augmented the Murano by offering even more standard and available equipment, which are first-class in nature and wildly purposeful. This includes the tech options on the vehicle, which now include a new Premium Package that boasts a wide range of driver-assist and convenience features. With this add-on, motorists can benefit from an Intelligent Around View Monitor and Intelligent Cruise Control, as well as an Intelligent Driver Alertness feature. There is also a Power Panoramic Moonroof, Bose premium audio system with 11 speakers, and heated front seats and outside mirrors to sweeten the pot.
The 2018 Murano delivers drivers even more value than previous models. To learn more about this premium platform, including pricing and specs, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle for a test drive.
Demand more than efficiency from the electric market. Instead, Sumner, expect safety with every mile - relying on the 2019 LEAF to deliver the security you deserve.
According to Inside EVs, the new LEAF offers a comprehensive safety suite - allowing drivers to confidently navigate each road. Automatic on/off headlamps frame the front, with integrated sensors identifying low-light conditions and activating the beams. Blind spot monitors flank the side-view mirrors, seamlessly detecting approaching vehicles or pedestrians; while rear cross-traffic alerts track changing traffic patterns (streaming audio and visual warnings via a seven-inch touchscreen). An emergency braking system responds intuitively to potential crashes, quickly assessing highway conditions and applying ABS pressure as needed; while an Intelligent Around View camera provides 360-degree perspectives for full high-definition coverage.
Each of these systems then pairs with Driver Alertness software - an exclusive Nissan feature that studies input patterns (including speed, trajectory, and lane positioning) to determine whether operators are losing focus. If a concern is detected chimes will sound, affording enough time to correct the issues before an accident occurs.
The 2019 LEAF promises sterling safety in Sumner. To learn more about this electric platform contact our team today!
Frustration follows you on the highway - mocking every attempt at connectivity, chiding your frantic button pushes. There will be no infotainment options for you, it says. Instead you’ll be forced to endure the weakest of signals and slowest of interfaces.
Allow Nissan to change that.
According to Inside EVs, the 2019 LEAF will soon arrive - and it’s bringing premium tech with it. This platform (which will feature S, SV, and SL variants) boasts integrated wireless Bluetooth links, which allow drivers to effortlessly connect to their favorite content. A seven-inch touchscreen frames the central console, flanked by auxiliary input jacks; while a streaming audio system bolsters every signal, ensuring easy access to SiriusXM Radio. A quick-charge port anchors the front, providing seamless power for each smart device; while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology prove essential, enabling passengers to sync their music, social networks, and text-messages (all of which can then be accessed via natural-based voice commands).
A Bose audio system further impresses, pumping out Hi-Fi sound through a seven-speaker design. Take advantage of rumbling notes when streaming content through the NissanConnect media center.
The 2019 LEAF - which should arrive later this fall - will deliver ample entertainment options to drivers, making it perfect for every commute. To learn more contact our team today!

In June 1992, the first Nissan Altima rolled off the production lines at their automaker’s Smyrna, Tennessee Assembly Plant. Since then, that number has ballooned to 4.6 million midsize sedans.
And, now with the release of the all-new 2019 Altima, that figure is about to sky-rocket again, as Nissan recently announced that they invested $170 million dollars for new upgrades for the Smyrna Plant. According to their press release, some funds were also allocated to its vehicle assembly facility in Canton, Mississippi, which will assist with the manufacturing of the Altima as well.
With the funding, a state-of-the-art laser brazing system was added to the body shop that gives the flexibility to weld the Altima’s sleek trunk lid. The paint shop was also updated with a new polyurethane stone guard coat paint system, which provides a more durable, best-in-class exterior appearance. Since the 2019 Altima will feature standard ProPilot Assist, Nissan added calibration equipment to the plant to ensure the reliability and functionality of the semi-autonomous technology.
The all-new Altima isn’t due to hit our dealership’s inventory until this fall, but it is exciting to hear how much innovative engineering is being put into the sedan.

According to Wheels, the next Z-car is in development. The online publication spoke with Nissan's Senior Vice President of Global Design, Alfonso Albaisa, who claims that planning for the next-gen Z is already underway.
“The Z-car, oh my god. Huge pressure,” said Albaisa in the interview when reviewing the to-do list of Nissan design work. “You can imagine I’m completely excited that I am in the position to work on that.” And there truly isn’t a better person for the job. Albaisa has developed a series of Nissan and INFINITI show cars over his 31 years with the automaker.
The Drive has also reported that the next Z-car will follow in the footsteps of the Toyota-BMW partnership, which resulted in the rebirth of the Toyota Supra and a new-gen BMW Z4 – both of which share the same platform and drivetrain. As with the platforms that underpin the current Infiniti QX50 and QX30, the next Z-car may share a platform co-developed with Daimler.
Little more is known right now, but The Drive is speculating that Nissan will reveal the new Z-car at the Tokyo Motor Show in October with a production-ready variant hitting the stage at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. If all goes well, a new Z-car could be available in dealership showrooms by 2020.
As soon as more details are revealed, we’ll be sure to share them on our Kirkland Nissan news blog. Until then, stay tuned or contact our dealership for additional information.
Safety now proves standard for the sport utility market - with Nissan fusing its entire Armada fleet (the SV, SL, Platinum, and Platinum Reserve) with Automatic Emergency Braking. This system will redefine driver security, delivering both automated responses and peace of mind.
According to The Drive, the 2019 Armada has been fused with advanced protection. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) releases radar signals across the roadway - generating precise 3D maps of the surrounding area. Through this, it can instantly identify sudden changes in both traffic patterns or the terrain (such as approaching pedestrians). Sensors immediately send this data to the center console, determining which of the two available strategies to use if a collision proves likely:
Audio and visual warnings are streamed through the eight-inch touchscreen - immediately alerting drivers to the potential danger and allowing them to decelerate.
Should no action be taken by the operator, the Armada's AEB system will instead engage the brakes itself - decreasing speed and controlling the steering column. This will help to mitigate a crash.
Through the standardization of Automatic Emergency Braking Nissan allows families to more securely explore the Lynnwood streets - bolstering every mile with seamless radar support.
To learn more about this safety system contact our dealership today.
It’s a stop-and-go world. Around you cars push forward, slam to a halt, and hurry to repeat the pattern - with their drivers anxious to escape the highway. You find yourself surrounded by fickle speeds and frantic trajectories; and worry settles deep within your bones. How will you maneuver through this madness?
We suggest relying on the 2019 Armada Platinum’s Intelligent Cruise Control system.
As The Drive explains, the new Armada is ready for even the wildest traffic patterns. Bolstering its chassis is Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) technology. This system delivers superior acceleration - with radar sensors mounted along the front bumper. These yield real-time scans, instantly mapping both forward traffic speeds and road conditions (including inclines, curves, and lane deviations). This information is then fed into a brake actuator, which assesses all data and creates viable response strategies:
If the following distance between the Armada and the preceding vehicle is considered too dangerous, acceleration will be slowed to assure further inches.
If the vehicle ahead comes to a sudden stop, the brakes will automatically engage to allow for a smooth stall.
If a change in terrain is detected, a gentle deceleration will be applied - with the steering column and ABS functions both activated to mitigate sudden rolls.
Through these responses, the ICC system allows the Armada Platinum to adapt to every moment - bringing true confidence to the Bellevue market.
