Everyone from sales (Jack Campbell) to the financing (michelle) process was extremely pleasurable. They helped me a first time truck buyer through a complicated process and made it easy. I felt appreciated and that it was an honest and trustworthy environment. I will be using them for all my vehicle purchases and trade ins moving forward.
Pete Olson was the best
Pete made buying a vehicle so pleasant and easy. I haven’t bought many vehicles in my life but I’ve heard car salesmen can sometimes be bad to deal with. Not in this case. Pete was one of the nicest guys I’ve met, and really knew his stuff about vehicles. He even came in on his day off to make sure I got what I needed and make sure he was there when I was able to drive off the lot. I highly recommend Key West Ford, and especially Pete Olson.
Quick, easy, and personable!
Erick was a pleasure to deal with, this was my first time purchasing a vehicle, and Erick made it very easy! I was worried going into the dealership as I was unsure of what to expect; however Erick had my best interest and was very attentive to what I was looking for. If you ever drop by this dealership I would highly recommend dealing with Erick!! He will make it his mission to get you exactly what you are searching for, at the best prices!

Erick is great
Pleasurable experience buying a vehicle from Erick must reccomend contacting him especially if you are from out of town like myself. I contacted Erick through the website he was professional and easy to deal with. The dealership went above and beyond all expectations.

Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
The summer is coming to an end - and manufacturers are prepping their assembly lines, readying their production strategies. Soon they’ll release a wave of pick-up powerhouses on the highway, fusing the market with fall performance and next-generation capability.
Newness doesn’t always translate to success, however - because the 2018 Titan still remains the perfect option for those seeking mid-size power.
Seattle drivers don’t have to wait for the fall fleet reveal. Instead they can journey to our dealership, where the 2018 Titan rumbles. As Jalopnik explains, this platform yields impressive capability - boasting a 5.6L 32-valve V8. This powerpoint produces 390 HP and 394 lb.-ft of torque, with the redline soaring to 5,800 RPMs. It’s ably assisted by a 200-amp alternator, and an iridium spark plug design promises crisp ignitions in even the coldest of conditions (the material proves apt at conducting currents, allowing for seamless sequence completions). Available Bilstein off-road shocks support the multi-leaf suspension and ensure nimble handling; while rack-and-pinion steering enables quick responses through an electric column.
The 2018 Titan lets drivers achieve the best in all-terrain performance - generating up to 9,400 pounds of conventional trailering and an estimated top-speed ratio of 120 MPH. It demands no compromises on the Seattle backroads. It instead only yields value.

It’s a series of payload demands - with a trailer stacked with cargo and a cabin filled with summer gear. An SUV is stuffed with boxes, bags, and luggage bursting at the seams; and still more items sit in your driveway, waiting to be loaded. You bite your lip, uncertain of just… how your ride will handle the weight of an off-road adventure. Its weak engine will surely sputter from the strain.
According to Automoblog, the 2019 Armada SV will soon arrive in Everett - and it promises class-leading performance. Beneath its hood discover a 5.6L Endurance V8, which generates a potent 390 HP (at 5,800 RPMs) and 394 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPMs). Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology provides increased intake capabilities, while an electronic drive-by-wire throttle enhances the ignition sequence. A seven-speed automatic transmission boasts a low-range gear ratio (2.937:1) to eliminate troublesome downshifting; and an independent double-wishbone suspension frames both the front and rear, utilizing auto-leveling functions to maximize trailer traction on unsteady terrains.
When these elements engage, they enable the 2019 SV to produce exceptional strength - effortlessly accommodating up to 8,500 pounds of conventional towing and a payload capacity of 1,724 pounds. No cargo will prove too great a challenge for this V8 beast.

It’s been a season spent at the pump - with every adventure stalled by your crossover’s low economy and greedy engine. Each hour seems to bring yet another station stop; and you’ve grown far too accustomed to watching the fuel gauge fall.
Isn’t it time for a change?
According to Truck Trend, the 2018 Kicks SR proves a balm for the efficiency-weary. Anchored by a responsive 1.6L DOHC four-cylinder engine, this Nissan hatchback promises top-tier performance (generating 31 MPGs in the city and 36 MPGs on the highway). To achieve these ratios it combines a series of smart mobility functions, ensuring that drivers spend their time on the road and not at the pump.
A dual injector system controls fuel distribution for the Kicks, allotting every drop in response to the real-time metrics of the performance-band. Continuously variable valve timing enhances air intake, maintaining optimal powertrain temperatures (and reducing overall resource demands); while an XTronic automatic transmission instantly identifies the most efficient gear ratios and eliminates costly downshifting. To further bolster success, the 2018 Kicks SR features hill start assistance - which lessens engine strain on high inclines and helps to counter the need for excess gasoline.
Through this, Nissan’s hatchback promises a combined MPG ratio of 33 - ensuring class-leading results all season-long. To learn more visit our dealership today!
Little changes often yield the biggest rewards - which is why Washington drivers will soon find much to celebrate. The 2019 Frontier maintains much of its predecessor’s distinctive style (after all, what isn’t broken doesn’t require fixing); but Nissan has bolstered the platform with a few dynamic upgrades to pique the interest of every pick-up fan.
According to The Drive, the 2019 Frontier offers a new color line-up - with Cayenne Red Metallic and Glacier White now added to the lower trims. These shades will perfectly complement the truck’s fascia (which maintains its signature chrome grille and tailgate spoiler); while the availability of glossy 18-inch black alloy wheels and satin-finished step-rails will inject a punch of sophistication into every mile.
Inside drivers will now discover a standardized seven-inch touchscreen. This will enable them to more efficiently engage with the NissanConnect infotainment console, which pairs streaming Bluetooth audio with voice-activated commands. High-definition pixels will frame every social media feed; and the crisp interface will showcase SiriusXM channels, Travel Link, and other popular programs.
These changes may - at a glance - seem unimportant; but they help to push the Frontier to the front of the mid-size pack, delivering a bold fascia and a user-friendly cabin. To learn more contact our dealership today!
When Nissan announced the discontinuation of the Juke, Washington drivers wrung their hands in disbelief - not wanting to lose this quirky crossover, unwilling to admit a sales defeat. This was the ride of choice for trendy urbanites, and it seemed like such a… waste to take it from the market.
Nissan seems to agree.
According to Jalopnik, a Juke revival may be planned. Nissan is currently working on developing a 2020 model for its UK line-up - one that will pair a robust turbocharged four-cylinder with a crisp six-speed manual gearbox. The chassis will be tweaked, with sculpted fenders delivering a sportier profile and color-blocking techniques used to emphasize the chiseled hood, angular roof, and sharp character lines. No official specs have yet been released but critics believe that this platform will push the performance boundaries, with more than 215 HP expected.
What does this mean for Federal Way? Jalopnik speculates that Nissan may bring the new Juke across the pond (if it proves popular in the UK). This would inject some much-needed style into the crossover market, and we have our fingers crossed for this ride’s return.
What do you think, Washington? Is it time for a new Juke? Share your opinions with our team!

Commuting into the city comes with its perils – congestion, accidents, road closures and detours. By the time you make it to the office, your nerves are shot. You just want to park your vehicle and leave your bad drive behind you. But, what if your nightmare has just begun? Tight underground garages and parallel parking spots can be downright frightful in Seattle.
Allow the 2018 Nissan Leaf to deliver some solace. The top-of-the-line SL trim comes equipped with an Intelligent Around View Monitor (I-AVM), which acts as a second set of eyes to help you navigate the most difficult maneuvers.
This four-camera system works by creating a virtual composite 360-degree bird's-eye view of the Leaf and its surrounding environment. To see what and where you need to see, the display automatically shows front, rear and curbside split-screen views.
For example, when you shift into reverse to start backing in, the split-screen display provides images of the rear view and the overhead. Colored lines also help guide you into the spot and gauge the distance between the Leaf and other obstacles. When you shift the car back into drive, the display automatically switches to the front view image.
Make your commute stress-free in the 2018 Leaf. To schedule your test drive in an SL model, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan to book an appointment.

According to a recent article by CNET, the 2019 Nissan Versa Sedan is one of the most affordable new cars that consumers can buy. Even with an average price increase of $300 across all trim lines, the 2019 model delivers affordability to the compact car segment.
Pricing for the 2019 Nissan Versa S starts at $12,360, which will fetch you a five-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. All models are anchored by a 1.6-liter I4 gas engine that generates 109 horsepower. Standard equipment on the base S trim includes steel wheels, cloth seats, Bluetooth and a backup camera. For $2,140 more, you can opt for the available Xtronic transmission, which utilizes an auxiliary gearbox with planetary gearing for greater fuel efficiency and on-road enjoyment. This grade level also offers cruise control.
The top-of-the-line Versa SV is priced at $15,990. With this model, you’ll enjoy more comfort and convenience features, such as upgraded cloth seats, an adjustable driver's seat, and power windows.

But, for another $800, you can opt for the available SV Special Edition Package, which boasts alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and a 7-inch infotainment system with satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

According to an article by Autocar, a UK-based online publication, an all-new Nissan Juke is on the horizon with an unveiling set before the end of the year. In an interview with Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s Global Head of Design, the next-gen crossover "is certainly coming soon", leading the publication to speculate that a global debut could take place at the Paris Motor Show in October.
In North America, the Juke was recently replaced with the all-new Kicks after sales of the vehicle started to wane. The Juke’s looks were extremely polarizing – it had a loyal following of drivers who loved its unique lines and body composition, but there was also a large cohort of automotive enthusiasts that couldn’t get behind the Juke.
As for the 2019 variant, Albaisa was quoted as saying that the second-generation Juke won’t resemble the last one. “It doesn’t look like the IMx or new Leaf, either. It's an urban meteor with a nasty attitude.”
Speculators are suggesting that the new Juke will be based on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance's 'V' platform, which already supports the Renault Captur and Nissan Micra. According to the article, the crossover is expected to eschew the naturally aspirated petrol engines that have accounted for much of its sales volume so far. Instead, the upcoming Juke will use the 898cc three-cylinder and 1197cc four-cylinder turbo motors found in the current Micra and Qashqai.
No word yet if the 2019 Juke will be released into the North American market. In the meantime, the 2018 Nissan Kicks remains a solid option for drivers wanting equal doses of style and performance. To schedule your test drive in one, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington.
Cost no longer compromises performance. Despite its staggeringly low MSRP - it starts at just $12,360, according to CarBuzz - the 2019 Versa SV delivers top-tier capability, introducing Renton drivers to a bevy of new upgrades. Nissan ensures that budget-friendly no longer proves a dirty word within the automotive world. Instead it promises multifaceted value with every mile.
Critics are celebrating the 2019 Versa SV. This mid-size sedan boasts a suite of enhancements, transforming both its fascia and cabin for the new year:
The Versa now sits on 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, which afford it a chic stance. Chrome accents highlight the refined body (175-inches long, 67-inches wide, and 60-inches high); while fog lamps boast deep bezels and wide angle lenses. An Intelligent Key system further impresses, allowing drivers to quickly slide into the cabin by automatically engaging the locking mechanisms.
Slide into the SV and discover a sleek cabin, with Piano Black detailing defining both the dash and instrument panel. A custom badge fits snugly within the leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the central media console is anchored by a crisp seven-inch color touchscreen. The audio system has been upgraded as well, boasting both Bluetooth streaming technology and USB connections to ensure effortless interfacing.
The 2019 Versa SV delivers premium features - without the expected price. To learn more about this Nissan platform contact us today!
