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.

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
Get ready, Seattle! The 2018 Nissan LEAF, due for debut early next year, is already stacking up international awards. The first honor for this incredible all-electric, zero-emission vehicle comes courtesy of the Consumer Electronics Show’s (CES) “Unveiled” ceremony.
At the special event, the 2018 LEAF garnered the “Best of Innovation” award in the “Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology” segment. Additionally, it was the convention’s honoree in the “Tech for a Better World” category. The distinctions come ahead of the annual January CES main show in Las Vegas, where Nissan will have the futuristic car on full display for eager event goers.
The LEAF’s “Best of Innovation” award reflects Nissan’s savvy approach through the leveraging of its ProPILOT Assist technology, which brings adaptive cruise control and single-lane semi-autonomous driving functionality to the hatchback. The car’s all-new engine for 2018 will also thrill owners by delivering 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque.
Nissan values fan opinion and there are few things more fun than discussing the merits of the company’s many racing cars. Thus, the Japanese manufacturer launched the #NISMOtop20 competition, pitting their most brilliantly engineered vehicles against each other in the ultimate consumer vote. The result? The Skyline GT-R R32 took the crown.
The Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 was put up against the Blancpain GT Series, the Bathurst 12 Hour, and the GT300-winning GT-R NISMO GT3; the Super GT 2014/15-winning GT-R NISMO GT500l and the 2003 JGTC-winning Skyline GT-R R34.
Aside from its famous inclusion in Sony PlayStation’s Gran Turismo video game series, the Skyline GT-R R32 has a long, distinguished history of excellence. Although Nissan only produced the vehicle for five years, it garnered highest honors across three continents. Of note is its Australian Touring Car victory in 1991 and 1992 with Bathurst 1000 victories both times. Even more fantastically, the racer took the top prize in each Japanese Touring Car Championship offered from 1990 through 1993.
Green Car Reports has the upcoming next-generation Nissan LEAF as one of their finalists for “Best Car to Buy 2018.” Why? Well, in a pinch, it comes down to affordability, great styling, and superior performance.
“If any electric car aside from the Tesla Model 3 can be called "long-awaited," it would be the redesigned 2018 Nissan Leaf,” says Green Car Reports. Their contention is a fair one—the redesigned all-electric vehicle is set to make a splash with high technology that comes at a base price of just $30,875—$7,000 less than a Chevy Bolt EV. And with that low cost comes the pleasure of a redesigned exterior that’s sportier, more upright, and at home among the manufacturer’s other hatchback options.
Performance in the 2018 LEAF is also set to be superlative. The new electric engine will wow with 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque. This represents an increase over the previous year of tremendous proportion. There’s now 40 HP and 49-lb.-ft. torque more than experienced previously.
Nissan is on the forefront of technology. They’ve made that even more abundantly clear recently with the announcement of the extension of their semi-autonomous ProPILOT functionality on upcoming LEAF models.
While the technologically advanced system brings adaptive cruise control to vehicles that support the standard, ProPILOT Park takes matters one step further. It aids in navigating the LEAF into either a parallel or perpendicular spot. Once you’re alongside the space you plan on occupying, the vehicle will place an overlay on the designated area on the center display, alerting you that the system is ready. Then, you need only tap the screen and press the main console’s corresponding button to activate the feature.
Once activated, ProPILOT Park will automatically navigate your LEAF into the spot via an autonomous multi-point turn. If it fails to get it right the first time, it will perform up to seven total maneuvers in order to finish the job. You may also make adjustments to the area designated on the center console display via directional buttons if required.
While ProPILOT Park won’t be available until the next-gen 2019 model LEAF, you can call us at Kirkland Nissan now to discuss the future of automobile technology!

Great news, Seattle drivers! The new 2018 Rogue is now available for sale at Kirkland Nissan!
This crossover is a great choice for small families and road-tripping adventurers in search of a CUV with a stylish interior and great versatility. It’s also Nissan’s best-selling vehicle of 2017 and that trend is expected to continue into next year.
The 2018 Rogue is offered in three gasoline engine-powered grade levels (S, SV and SL) and in either FWD or AWD. Pricing starts at an affordable MSRP of $24,680 for an S FWD and increases to $32,410 for the Rogue SL AWD.
One of the key enhancements that we’re really excited about is the addition of available ProPILOT Assist technology, which provides supported steering, braking and accelerating during single-lane highway driving. According to Nissan, this is the foundation of fully autonomous vehicles, helping drivers stay centered in the lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead – all with the push of a button.
See it in action here:
And if that doesn’t impress you, the Rogue's other enhancements will, like the addition of NissanConnect on all trims, a standard Motion-Activated Liftgate on the SV, and standard Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection on the SL. Plus, with two new exterior colors – Scarlet Ember and Midnight Pine – it’ll be hard to say no to the all-new 2018 Rogue.

With 2017 drawing to a close, we’re starting to welcome new 2018 model year vehicles into our inventory, like the highly-anticipated Nissan Sentra. This compact sedan is a favorite amongst Seattle drivers, as it appeals to a wide range of tastes and budgets. And like you, we can’t wait to take it for a spin!
For 2018, the Sentra will be offered in six trim levels: S, SV, SR, SL, SR Turbo and NISMO. All are available with Nissan’s Xtronic automatic transmission, but the S, SR Turbo and NISMO do come standard with six-speed manual transmission.
As for pricing, the Sentra remains an affordable choice for new car shoppers. It starts at $16,900 MSRP for a base S and works its way up to $25,790 MSRP for the top-tier NISMO.
Under the hood, the 2018 model comes with the choice of two engine options – a 1.8-liter four-cylinder on lower trims and a spirited 1.6-liter direct injection gasoline turbocharged engine on upper trims. All 2018 Sentras also include Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), except those with manual transmissions or a NISMO badge.
New for this year, the S model is sporting some noticeable upgrades too, like a standard RearView Monitor and 5” color display with Streaming Audio via Bluetooth and Siri Eyes-Free. Higher trims also feature Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control and Intelligent Cruise Control.
Here’s a closer look at the top-of-the-line NISMO:

Nissan’s 2018 LEAF electric vehicle is prepped to offer Seattleites semi-autonomous driving goodness. This same ProPILOT technology has been announced for integration into the automaker’s Serena e-POWER van, debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show 2017.
While the hard details on the Serena e-POWER’s engine are being kept under wraps, its Japanese release in spring 2018 will merge the quietness and fuel efficiency of an electric vehicle with the single-lane autonomous driving features offered in the LEAF and elsewhere, including ProPILOT Assist adaptive cruise control. This Nissan system will enable the van to automatically control its distance from the car traveling to its front, braking as necessary while also staying within its intended lane.
The Serena electric van will also take some nifty design cues from the 2018 LEAF. The grille will see a similar level of special design attention, with a futuristic blue-accented chrome bar design that hearkens to the aforementioned hatchback’s similarly colored geometric front pattern. Plus, LED tail lamps and aerodynamic aluminum wheels await owners.
We’ll have more on the automaker's latest vehicle developments within this space. In the interim, we encourage you to stop by Kirkland Nissan in Seattle to test drive our available inventory!
The Tokyo Motor Show 2017 was a busy event for Nissan. The Japanese automaker unveiled a number of vehicles, including the new Serena e-POWER, a minivan with an electric-drive system.
The second model in Nissan’s lineup to feature e-POWER, the technology pulls upon the manufacturer’s expertise developed through their LEAF line. Unlike that car’s setup, however, this system was first introduced in Japan in November 2016 and utilizes a small gasoline motor to charge the battery. The result? An elimination of the external charger, moving the automaker even further ahead of the competition.
While firm details on the drivetrain of the new Serena are not yet available, the previous e-POWER vehicle, the Nissan Note, sports a 1.2L three-cylinder HR12DE motor that packs a 1.5 kWh battery. Further, it integrates the EM57 traction engine seen in the LEAF. While this may give us a preview of what to expect from the company’s latest wonder car, we’ll know for sure in the coming months as it’s expected to see Japanese release in spring 2018.

Do you frequently leave the lights on or forget to lock your car? Soon these troubles will be a distant memory with Amazon Alexa. Nissan recently announced that this smart-home technology will be available on the 2018 Pathfinder, as well as the Armada and Leaf.
Amazon Alexa is truly revolutionizing the automotive industry by giving drivers control over certain connected-car functions with the sound of their voice. With this technology, Nissan owners can lock and unlock doors, honk the horn, flash the lights and start or stop the engine. All they have to say is, "Alexa, ask NissanConnect Services to...", followed by the command – and voila!
Here’s how it works:
Alexa is already available on many 2016-2017 model year Nissans, including the Altima, GT-R, Maxima, Murano, Rogue, Sentra and Titan. But, this extension to the 2018 Pathfinder, Armada and Leaf vehicles is certainly a welcomed addition, especially for drivers in the Pacific Northwest who rely on remote start during the winter.
To learn more about Alexa and its capabilities, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to schedule your test drive today! You can also pre-shop our online inventory by clicking here.

When the Nissan GT-R was unveiled in 2008, it brought Seattle drivers supercar performance for just under $70K. Since then, the MSRP has crept above the six-figure mark, but that’s about to change. Nissan recently announced that pricing for the entry-level 2018 GT-R Pure will sit below the $100K range, making it more accessible to a wider pool of North American drivers.
Here’s a look at Nissan’s pricing structure:
2018 GT-R Pure: $99,990 MSRP
This trim is designed to be the most affordable, but still performance-oriented. Its 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 throws down an impressive 565 horsepower and 467 lb.-ft. of torque.
2018 GT-R Premium: $110,490 MSRP
The Premium adds a few more creature comforts to its list of standard features, including an 11-speaker Bose sound system, titanium exhaust and active noise cancellation.
2018 GT-R Track Edition: $128,490 MSRP
The Track Edition, now in its second year of limited availability, delivers the same 565 horsepower of the Pure and Premium trims, but with certain features only found in the GT-R NISMO.
2018 GT-R NISMO: $175,490 MSRP
The NISMO, which is available in very limited numbers, is a supercar engineered with the track in mind. It features specially designed technologies that enhance the car's 600 horses through optimized aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain.
Here’s a first look of the 2018 GT-R at the 2017 New York Auto Show:
