Everything about my trip to Key West was great, Erick, Ian, Gurj, and Kal were amazing to deal with. Super patient guys with a knack for customer service, never once did I feel like I was at a normal dealership, these guys made the car buying process super easy and not stressful.
I would definitely refer family and friends to shop here for a vehicle.
Competitive price and great service
We did our online research first before we went into the dealer. The sales were very attentive and friendly. We made the purchase on the same day!
So comfortable and easy!
These guys are the BEST! My Salesman, Peter was very helpful and not pushy, made my experience so great and easy. 20/10 recommend them to anyone!

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.
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
Complacency is a dirty word - which is why Nissan has struck it from the company lexicon, refusing to acknowledge its existence. Engineers aren’t allowed to whisper it; designers can’t debate its merits; and compliance officers must never entertain its meaning. Instead they must all emphasize innovation with every breath.
It’s this vocabulastic dedication that has enabled Nissan to launch its 2018 LEAF - and dominate the global market.
According to Electrek, the 2018 LEAF will soon rev from country to country. Nissan is expanding its production processes, seeking to establish itself in every corner of the world; and, to do this, it’s bringing an all-green initiative to seven additional markets: Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and South Korea.
Nissan has never proven a strong presence in these areas - with sales trailing its Ford and Honda competitors. The brand is confident, however, that the 2018 LEAF will deliver massive sales. This all-electric hatchback has already earned record-breaking pre-orders in Europe and the United States; and consumer interest is at a high. It’s the perfect time, therefore, to dominate the Australasia market.
How will the LEAF accomplish this task? We believe its e-powertrain will impress every driver - yielding a peppy 147 HP (a 38% increase over the previous generation) and 236 lb.-ft of torque (a 26% increase, respectively). The laminated lithium-ion battery cells provide 60% more energy acceleration to ensure a 150-mile range; and the recently stiffened torsion bar allows for stable handling. This platform will maneuver through every challenge with ease.

It’s coming - that rush of snow and sleet. Old Man Winter is huffing and puffing his way toward Seattle, shaking the ground with each stomp of his feet; and soon the miles will turn slick from the season.
Nissan isn’t worried.
According to Four Wheeler, a new kind of all-terrain monster is coming to Seattle. Soon Nissan will debut its 2018 370Z Ki - a custom-tuned coupe that will defy the winter. Anchoring this platform is an advanced tract system, with the suspension lifted three inches to accommodate front-mounted skis and rear Dominator tracks. Massive skid-plates defend the undercarriage, while boomerang-shaped halogen headlamps promote premium visibility (they cut through fog and sleet with equal ease). Enhanced wheel spacers accommodate both performance tires and snow-blades; and a revised AWD allows the car to deliver maximum traction on slick roads, distributing torque as needed.
When these features combine, they let the 2018 370Z Ki glide through the miles - utilizing its unique ski-tracks to accelerate smoothly. This car delivers the precision of a snowboard, with Nissan fusing it with a sport-tuned transmission that seamlessly adapts to changing terrains; and the inclusion of a custom-mounted exhaust system promotes improved air intake, lessening the burden of the engine.
This is a snowmobile that every Seattle driver will appreciate.

It's the unthinkable; the unimaginable - forgetting your baby in the back seat of the car on a hot summer's day. In your heart-of-hearts, you know you would never intentionally leave your child in such danger, but accidents can happen - all it takes is a moment of forgetfulness.
But, not if you drive a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. New for this model year, all SUVs are equipped with a standard Rear Door Alert System, which reminds drivers to check the back seat of their vehicle by using a series of distinctive honks as they walk away.
This smart technology was created by two Nissan staffers - Elsa Foley, an industrial engineer and mother of two young children, and Marlene Mendoza, a mechanical engineer and mother of three. "The Rear Door Alert uses a similar honking cue that has been proven successful with Nissan's Easy Fill Tire Alert," said Foley in a press release. "By drawing your attention back to the vehicle, once you've walked away, you are more likely to recheck the back seat than with a visual alert alone."
Watch this video to learn how it works:
Nissan has long been an innovator of advanced technologies and the Rear Door Alert System is no exception.
To learn more about the 2018 Pathfinder and its host of standard safety features, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington for a test drive.

Great news for Seattle area all-electric vehicle fans! A recent Automotive News article reports that Nissan will add four EVs to its line-up over the next five years, along with its luxury counterpart Infiniti, which is expected to add two EVs to its product line within the same timeframe.
These six battery-powered vehicles are the Japanese automaker's share of the 12 EVs that are now planned for the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi brand through to 2022. Up until now, a breakdown has not been available by brand. But, according to Toshihiro Hirai, Corporate VP for Powertrain and EV Engineering, the six Nissan vehicles will only include full all-electric vehicles and not plug-in hybrids, like the new e-Power system, which is currently available in Japan on the Nissan Note.
Rumours of an electric SUV have also been swirling for quite some time, especially since the release of the Nissan IMx Concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. And there is the likelihood of a multi-purpose vehicle as well, which could prove popular with large families looking for an alternative to gas-powered minivans. These prospective models would join the next-gen Leaf, which is currently for sale in North America and boasts a significantly revised design and increased powertrain performance.
Can't wait until 2022 to purchase one of Nissan's newest all-electric vehicles? Satiate your hunger for plug-in performance with a 2018 Leaf EV. Models are arriving soon atour dealership - pre-book your test drive in one today!
The idea proves less than stellar - with a series of frayed straps looped around a pick-up bed, their tattered ends straining against the wind. Every buckle seems ready to snap; each cord is poised to break; and you know that this trip will end with your cargo bouncing down the highway. What else can you do, however? Your truck simply wasn’t designed to accommodate this kind of long-haul payload.
Nissan recommends that you hurry to your nearest dealership - and ask about the 2018 Frontier.
According to a recent press release, the 2018 Frontier delivers superior payload solutions - offering Seattle drivers the Utili-Track system. This exclusive Nissan option adapts to even the toughest loads through its advanced modules. Five 'C' cross-section rails are mounted along the rails to ensure multiple tie-down points. Removable utility cleats slide within the embedded liner tracts, allowing for quick clamp connections; while moveable cargo trays accommodate small items with ease. Adjustable tool boxes line the sides to offer custom storage, and extenders can be added to the tailgate to creates inches of extra space (perfect for lumber and off-road toys).
To further enhance the hauling experience, Nissan has bolstered the Utili-Track system with a heavy-duty bed-liner - coating the Frontier’s rear in scratch-resistant rubber. No longer fear those supersized payloads.
With the inclusion of the Utili-Track system, Nissan ensures that every driver can avoid those cumbersome cords - allowing them to instead customize their cargo and improve their storage.
Want to learn more? Contact our dealership today for further information about this system - and don’t forget to schedule a test-drive in the 2018 Frontier!
It’s a collection of practical lines - economical design and efficient styling. You peer at the long span of a pick-up, noting the fenders meant to reduce drag and the tires intended to crush the pavement. There isn’t one functional detail missing… nor is there anything that inspires. This big-framed box is terribly dull.
We suggest that you seek a more interesting alternative - like the 2018 Frontier!
Nissan has just unveiled its latest Frontier - and this pick-up will please every Seattle driver. Anchoring the front is a chrome grille, which emphasizes the hulking frame (291-inches of length and 73-inches of width). Tubular step rails draw attention to the aerodynamic side panels, while fog lights deliver a boomerang-style shape. Splash guards protect the 16-inch six-spoke steel wheels, while bed-rail and mirror caps provide a burst of metallic shine. A tailgate spoiler brings depth to the rear, and an optional power sliding moonroof creates a chic addition.
Nissan believes in the power of color - which is why it’s fused the 2018 Frontier with a bold line-up. Catch both the light and every stare by choosing: Forged Copper, Brilliant Silver, Arctic Blue Metallic, and more. Tinted glass and LED accents complete the effect.
The 2018 Frontier proves a striking addition to the pick-up market - allowing drivers to discover more than mere practicality. For further information about this Nissan platform (or to schedule a test-drive in one of our current models) contact us today.

Nissan certainly has winter on its mind! To complement the snowmobile-inspired 370Zki, which the automaker is unveiling at this week's Chicago Auto Show, the engineers at Nissan have also created a second concept car, dubbed the 2018 Armada Snow Patrol.
This design literally takes Nissan's flagship SUV to new heights, removing the Armada from the carpool line and returning it to its roots as an adventure-ready off-roader. It features an all-new design with more height, a massive front bumper, and extreme all-terrain tires, making this SUV ready for anything, including snow-covered mountains.
The 2018 Armada Snow Patrol comes equipped with 20-inch Cognito Series 61 wheels finished in satin black and Pro Comp MT2 off-road tires. The suspension has been raised by two inches in the front and one inch in the rear, giving it a towering and aggressive stance.
Up front, the bumper features a new bull bar, 12,000 lb winch, and LED light bar. Adding to the vehicle's rugged appeal are five-inch LED fog lights, custom side steps, rock sliders, and a huge LED light bar on the roof rack. Under the Armada Snow Patrol's bright blue wrap with custom badging, the interior of the cabin has also been re-trimmed with leather seats and door panels.
The Armada Snow Patrol is a definite hard-core SUV - one that has Seattle off-roaders hoping to see it hit the production line soon. Alas, the automaker has yet to announce official plans for this concept - and they may never will.
But, you can still get a taste of the 2018 Armada's best-in-class standard 390 horsepower, full-feature eight-passenger interior and class-exclusive Intelligent Rear View Mirror by scheduling a test drive at our dealership. To learn more, contact us at Kirkland Nissan today.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Nissan has turned its iconic 370Z Roadster into a snowmobile. That’s right – a snowmobile. Dubbed the 370Zki – pronounced “370-Ski" – the 332-horsepower concept will make its world debut this week at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
And what better place to unveil a snowmobile-inspired vehicle than in the “Windy City” in the dead of winter. Should Chicago get plummeted with a blizzard, the 370Zki will have no trouble carving its way through deep powder to reach McCormick Place.
However, transforming a stock 370Z to the 370Zki was not easy. To make room for the rear DOMINATOR Tracks, the Roadster’s entire drivetrain had to be removed. Next came the fabrication of custom mountings for the rear suspension springs and three-inch custom spacers to install the snow tracks to the wheel hubs. The 370Z’s brakes were retained, but the lines had to be rerouted and the exhaust system was modified to fit under the vehicle. The rear wheel wells were also altered for clearance of the four-foot-long snow tracks.
On the exterior, Nissan kept its cosmetic changes to a minimum, opting to wrap the 370Zki to resemble ski goggles. Watch as it is put through its paces on the slopes in Wyoming:
Are you wanting to hit the “Znow” in a 370Zki? One can only dream since this concept car will likely never hit production. Alas, spring will soon be here – why not test drive a 2018 370Z from Kirkland Nissan instead? To learn more, contact our team today.
The highway miles hold no appeal for you - offering none of the adventures you crave, delivering only smooth lines and familiar pavement. These roads are too mild to ever impress; and you find yourself longing to explore what waits beyond.
Allow Nissan to help you - by fusing the 2018 Frontier PRO-4X with a series of all-terrain technologies. Prepare to seek out thrills beyond the byways!
As the Chicago Sun Times explains, the new Frontier PRO-4X delivers a premium off-road experience. Bilstein shocks frame the chassis, ensuring balanced handling on even the toughest terrains. Skid plates shield the undercarriage from pebbles and broken pavement, while an electronic differential enhances the suspension (automatically engaging when extra traction is needed and transferring power among the wheels).
To further delight adventurers, the 2018 Frontier also boasts two distinctive gear boxes - a five-speed automatic and a six-speed manual. Choose the former to experience seamless performance, with the system intuitively shifting between ratios to accommodate changing trails; or trust your own abilities with the latter, utilizing its precise design to control every rev.
With the release of the 2018 PRO-4X, Nissan provides off-road fun for every Seattle driver. To learn more about this pick-up contact our team today.
You despise cliches. They’re tired little phrases that offer no substance - relying on lazy descriptions and dim insights. Each day you strive to remove them from your vocabulary, wanting to embrace unique meanings. As you peer into the 2018 Pathfinder, however, only one saying comes to mind: size really does matter.
Don’t worry - we’ll forgive this momentary lapse of creativity.
Boasting an expansive seven-passenger configuration, the new Pathfinder does indeed prove that bigger is better. Slip inside this platform and discover class-leading comfort - with its 114-inch wheelbase certain to accommodate families and cargo with ease.
First Row: 42.2 inches.
Second Row: 41.7 inches.
Third Row: 30.7 inches.
First Row: 42.2 inches.
Second Row: 39.4 inches.
Third Row: 37.8 inches.
Customize the Pathfinder’s cabin - utilizing its EZ FLEX storage system to quickly shift the second and third row seats (each reclines, split-folds, and stows away with the press of a button); and take advantage of the 78.9-inches of total cargo space. The cavernous rear accommodates all items with ease.
With the release of the 2018 Pathfinder, Nissan delivers a premium SUV experience - and connects Seattle drivers to the size they’ve been craving.
