I have given Key West Ford 5 star’s because they are very professional and they alway checked back up on me multiple times after financing my first vehicle !

For the second year in a row, Nissan has driven off with more best-in-category wins than any other brand in the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA). Held annually, these honors are based on nation-wide survey results from over 58,000 owners of new 2017 and 2018 cars and light trucks. This year, the Murano, Maxima and Titan were all repeat winners, with the Leaf and 370Z joining them on the podium for the first time.
According to AutoPacific president George Peterson, “the VSAs provide consumers with insight into which vehicles are giving owners a satisfying ownership experience.” The awards objectively measure owner satisfaction with 40 separate attributes ranging from seating comfort and interior quality to driving performance.
The Murano, which has earned category awards four years in a row, was recognized for its unique styling cues, including a floating roof design, large windows, Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, as well as an oversized panoramic roof, while the Maxima and Titan were both honored for their on-road prowess – specifically the sedan’s 3.5-liter V6 engine and the pickup’s 5.6-liter Endurance V8 variant.
As for the newcomers, the Leaf was noted for its zero emissions performance and remarkable EPA range of 151 miles, along with its innovative driver assist technologies, including e-Pedal and ProPILOT Assist. The VSAs also gave top marks to the 370Z for its unforgettable styling and mighty 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with 332 horsepower.

When driving a full-size SUV, there’s a lot to be said for features that can help you feel safer and more secure on congested roadways. After all, these big vehicles often come with larger blind spots and can be somewhat difficult to maneuver, especially if you are used to driving a sedan or compact crossover.
But, that’s not the case with the 2018 Nissan Armada. It stands out from other full-size SUVs in its segment with its extensive suite of available advanced safety and security systems:
Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
This system can warn of risks that lie beyond your forward field of vision. It uses advanced radars to sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, as well as the car traveling two lengths before you.
Intelligent Cruise Control
This safety feature works like a standard cruise control system, but with the added benefit of maintaining a selected distance from the vehicle in front of you.
RearView Monitor and Intelligent Around View Monitor
This system provides an extra set of eyes when backing out of driveways or into tight spots. The innovative Intelligent Around View Monitor can also be handy when negotiating off-road trails because it provides a virtual bird’s-eye view from above the vehicle.
Intelligent Lane Intervention, Lane Departure Warning & Blind Spot Warning
All of these safety features will alert you of potential lane drifts and detected vehicles within the blind spot area to help avoid a collision.
Stay safer on Seattle’s roads this summer. To learn more about the 2018 Armada, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for a test drive.
The future of high-performance has arrived - with Nissan unveiling its 2019 GT-R. This prototype will deliver exceptional speeds and dynamic styling to Tacoma, proving that compromise is indeed a thing of the past.
According to Wards Auto, the new GT-R has been spotted cruising the cobblestone streets of Europe. Washington critics are desperately trying to cross the pond to catch a sneak-peek, wanting to experience the thrill of pure V8 power; and we wish to join them. This Nissan beast proves too tempting to ignore, with its potent twin-turbo engine yielding 710 HP (at 7,100 RPM) and 575 lb.-ft of torque (at 5,600 RPM). Its sheet metal body has been tailored for speed, utilizing a low-sloping roofline and aerodynamic fenders to counter drag; while the 21-inch wheels tear through the pavement. This promises a 0 to 60 run of just three seconds!
To further delight drivers, the 2019 GT-R yields quicksilver styling to match its stellar power. A black grille anchors the front, flanked by metallic trim; while gold inlays frame the twin-exhaust system. The windows have been stretched, emphasizing the lean profile; and a bigger hood bulge now defines the front, barely containing the rumbling V8 beneath. Though no official dimensions have yet been released, critics anticipate that the body has been lengthened by (at least) two inches to ensure a sleek design.

For the third consecutive year, the Nissan Frontier has driven off with a 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study Award within the Midsize Pickup segment. It is joined by the Maxima in the Large Car honors and the Altima in the Midsize Car segment, earning Nissan three impressive wins in the survey (as well as a tie for the most awards won).
The J.D. Power IQS study examines experienced problems by owners per every 100 vehicles during the first 90 days of ownership. A lower score is reflective of advanced quality.
The highest ranked Nissan Frontier proudly beat out its competitors, the GMC Canyon and Honda Ridgeline, who tied for second place. This year, Nissan also improved by eight problems per 100 vehicles to an overall average of just 85 problems per 100 vehicles, which was the best performance of all non-luxury Japanese brands.
“Nissan’s J.D. Power IQS results for 2018 are encouraging because they reflect customer satisfaction directly from the people who buy and lease our vehicles,” said Mark Swenson, Vice President, Total Customer Satisfaction, Nissan North America in a press release. “Positive IQS performance is a tribute to the ongoing efforts of Nissan Engineering, R&D, Quality and Manufacturing teams around the world, as well as our many global supplier partners. It is rewarding for us to see positive movement in J.D. Power IQS for three years running.”
To learn more about the 2018 Frontier, including its range of comprehensive trim levels and cab options, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive.
First impressions often prove wrong. When glancing at the 2018 Frontier’s mid-size profile, drivers may find themselves underwhelmed - certain that this athletic (but compact) ride could never offer the performance they need. Towing, after all, demands a strength only the big-fendered trucks can provide.
Allow the Auto Guide team to disprove this theory.
Recently, Auto Guide took the 2018 Frontier for a spin - pitting its Class IV hitch against a series of towing tests. What they discovered was a class-competitive platform that could easily keep pace with Ford and Toyota. Boasting 6,640 pounds of conventional trailering (as well as a payload capacity of 1,502 pounds), this Nissan pick-up proves ready for every haul.
At the rear of the Frontier is a trailer hitch - which offers a four-pin wiring harness and wide connection ball to ensure seamless compatibility. The 73.2-inch box delivers maximum value, with its Utiliti-Track system accommodating all payloads via custom cargo hooks and adjustable shelving; while tie-down cleats provide a secure hold. A factory-applied spray-on bed-liner protects the truck against even the heaviest boxes and bags; and available extenders offer bespoke storage options. Drivers can easily transform this truck into the ultimate long-hauler.
The 2018 Frontier promises superior cargo capabilities. To learn more about it - or to request a test-drive in one of our current models - contact our team today.
The quest for space often proves futile - with families crowding into tiny cabins, wedging themselves between tight door frames and hard seat-backs. The mid-size market is poorly named, with many of its sedans drawing inspiration from their smaller hatchback siblings; and trying to secure comfort seems an impossibility.
Allow the 2018 Altima to transform it into a reality.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2018 Altima delivers ample space to Seattle - with its cabin leaving all competitors (including the 2018 Camry) in the dust. Slide into the five-passenger interior and discover unprecedented volume, with 45-inches of legroom in the front and 36.1-inches in the rear. The elongated wheelbase (109.3-inches) ensures comfort for all, boasting a high roofline (57.8-inches) and a wide door-to-door span (72-inches). This delivers 109 cu.-ft for families to sprawl in, letting them indulge in leather-appointed seating and soft-touch dash materials.
Size truly does matter to Nissan. That’s why it ensured that the 2018 Altima would yield superior space - even when compared to the venerable Camry. Despite boasting a longer wheelbase (111.2-inches), this sedan only offers 42.1-inches of legroom in the front and a total cargo volume of 100 cu.-ft. It simply can’t compete.

Too often does safety prove a luxury within the pick-up market. Big-wheeled haulers are meant to deliver strength, with every line tailored for payloads; and collision prevention becomes an afterthought for drivers and engineers alike.
The 2018 Frontier defies this convention, however- introducing Tacoma to an award-winning safety suite.
According to Auto Guide, the new Frontier proves a dynamic option for consumers. After recently securing a Top Pick rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, this platform is ready for every mile. An advanced airbag suite - which includes dual-stage supplemental front, side-impact, and roof-mounted inflatables - surrounds the cabin, utilizing rollover sensors to provide a seamless activation. Electronic stability and traction control minimizes under-steerage, allowing the platform to quickly realign itself on sharp curves; while a tire monitoring system ensures that precise pressure levels are maintained. Three-point belts pair with active head restraints to reduce the chance of whiplash; and lower anchor tethers securely protect children, keeping their car-seats in nationally mandated positions.
To further ensure safety, the 2018 Frontier also boasts front and rear crumple zones - with its chassis engineered to absorb friction. Hood-buckling creases will reduce every fascia impact, while pipe-style steel guard beams will stabilize the doors. This will greatly lessen overall kinetic energy and lessen damage to both the truck and passengers.
The 2018 Frontier emphasizes safety with every rev. To learn more about this Nissan pick-up contact our team today!

According to an article from Inside EVs, the Sylphy Zero Emission vehicle is now available for order in China through Nissan’s joint venture subsidiary, Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Company.
The Sylphy Zero Emission first debuted at the Auto China 2018 show and is Nissan’s first mass-production electric vehicle designed and produced specifically for the Chinese marketplace. It is built on the same platform as the world’s best-selling electric car – the Leaf – and shares many of the same core technologies, including a fully electric powertrain.
But where it differs is its styling – specifically the Sylphy’s full-size wheelbase, which offers greater stability and class-leading interior legroom, as well as multilayer ergonomic seating with heating options. A connectivity feature will also allow the Sylphy’s audio and video to be remote-controlled from a mobile phone.
According to the article, the starting price for the Sylphy Zero Emission (after subsidies) is approximately 166,000 yuan ($25,000 USD). There is also no word if Nissan plans to extend the launch beyond China to include other global markets, such as North America, but that would certainly be exciting news if they did.

With fierce competition in the mid-size pickup segment, Nissan has plans to kick its production into gear in 2019 with the release of an all-new, next-generation Frontier. According to Steve Marsh, Vice President of Manufacturing, the truck will be assembled at Nissan’s Canton plant in Mississippi with the sole goal of “building the next generation of one of the best pickup trucks in America.”
Since Marsh’s bold proclamation, speculators have been abuzz with chatter about the 2019 MY Frontier. To date, it has been reported that the truck may share its platform with the Nissan Navara, which is currently sold in Europe and South America. There have also been talks of Nissan launching the 2019 Frontier with a Cummins turbo diesel, which some unconfirmed reports have said that the variant will be rated for 200 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Other powerplant options are also likely to include a naturally aspirated V6 engine.
Timing for an all-new Frontier couldn’t be better, especially since the pickup hasn’t had a complete refresh in a number of years. Industry insiders are hopeful that new equipment, updated styling and a more refined interior will strengthen the already excellent value-proposition of the truck.
To learn more about Nissan’s best-selling mid-size pickup, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive in a new or used Frontier.

When selecting a new vehicle for your family, safety is imperative. You need the peace of mind that your precious cargo is protected and that the car is equipped with the latest high-tech safety features.
With the 2018 Nissan Maxima, you get both. It was recently recognized by J.D. Power in their 2018 Initial Quality Study (IQS) as one of the top-rated family vehicles, earning an Initial Quality Power Circle Rating of 5 out of 5, as well as a quality award in the Large Car segment.
According to their review, the Maxima sets the bar high for its class by offering consumers a large portfolio of safety technologies designed with passengers and drivers in mind. This includes the carrying over of forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking from late 2017 models on all five trims. Consumers can also benefit from intelligent cruise control, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert on the top-line SL, SR and Platinum levels.
In federal crash tests, the 2018 Maxima also scored incredibly well. It received an overall rating of five out of five stars with highest scores in frontal, side and rollover tests, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Plus, the Maxima won a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) with top “Good” ratings in all categories, as well as a “Superior” score for crash avoidance and mitigation. Impressive!
Keep your family safe this summer! To learn more about the 2018 Maxima and its host of premium protective features, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.
