I got a good deal on my Elantra gt hatchback. Jag was super nice and showed me everything about the cars I liked. Got a good car on my budget. Also all the staff were super nice. I highly recommend key west ford.
Went in looking for my first car, came out with an awesome deal today. Peter took the time and effort to help me out to make sure I got the car that I wanted. Michelle did a great job with the financing of the vehicle. Both of you two did an amazing job and I thank you for you help today!
Easy going, not pushy and personable
Allan was great! He knew that my wife and I were interested in purchasing a Pre owned vehicle and was instrumental in helping us find what we were looking for. He listened to our needs, instead of telling us what we wanted to hear. He was personable and friendly. We never felt pressured into purchasing something that didn’t fit our needs. I would highly recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for a great experience during a car search. His knowledge is second to none and his attitude is great!
Bought my first car today with, Jeff Upton. He answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect SUV. Michael Nokes was also there helping Jeff out and explaining what to look for in a used car and the pros and cons that come with it. Great to deal with, very friendly and kind,
Michelle and Nick helped me with financing and they were great, and patient with me. Answered all my questions and concerns with detail. Loved them, so kind and so friendly.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first major purchase!
Jag was super help full and well knowable of the cars
he did great job to explain everything and at the end help to set up Bluetooth and navigation system I am really thankful to Jag for this experience
Great service and for sure will come back afin
Great sales and communication
I bought a used 2016 mustang gt just recently from Lino. He was very helpful, friendly and answered all my questions. I also spoke in great length with Michael Nokes the sales manager. He was easy to get along with and a general overall nice guy. I would definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking for a brand new or used ford. Lino didn’t pressure me into buying that first day I arrived. You will feel comfortable dealing with him and Michael nokes.
Excellent service and follow through
We were window shopping for a new vehicle in the near future. Tom showed us exactly what we wanted and made the deal happen today. We are exceptionally happy with his service and would recommend friends and family go see him at Key West Ford!
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff that made it easy to decide on a vehicle. We are happy with the experience and would definitely recommend this dealership.
Change is a good thing
Best attention to my needs & very respectful 😊
Jag and the team are very hospitable. They all made me feel as tho’ I was their guest. I was lucky that they had exactly what I needed in the lot and I was given the best deal I could have hoped for. Thank you, Jag !

From a window you watch - apprehension trapped in your reflection, worry etched along your brow. Your teen is slipping behind the wheel of his first car… and all you can do is consider the terrible possibilities. Will he be safe? Will he be responsible? He promised that he would but trust proves a delicate thing; and it’s easily overwhelmed by concern.
Nissan understands. This is a milestone that every parent dreads - and letting your child onto the road (unsupervised, unobserved) is no simple task. This is why the 2018 LEAF has been designed to deliver superior support to every generation, utilizing a unique suite of youth-focused technologies. Check it out!
According to the NY Daily News, the 2018 LEAF has been tailored for teens. Within its NissanConnect infotainment console is a series of safety protocols - applications that regulate speed (utilizing adaptive cruise control to maintain highway limits), curfews (alerting young drivers to approaching pre-set time restrictions and sending text messages to their parents’ phones), and boundaries (with integrated mapping systems tracking every movement). These programs work in seamless tandem to provide greater peace of mind on the road.
They’re also ably assisted by a fully automated suite. Collision notifications are sent immediately to designated smartphones, alerting family members to the possibility of an accident; Emergency SOS programing allows teens to communicate with local medical or police personnel, ensuring that they’re never alone; and roadside assistance functions provide access to Nissan’s own in-house team. Through the Connect console, drivers of every age can experience true support.
Want to learn more? Visit our dealership today for further information about the 2018 LEAF and its teen technologies.
The thought comes suddenly - a rush of words and worry. Is the car charged? You scowl against your pillow, searching your memory for the answer. Did you plug-in the port when you came home from work? Will the battery be ready for the morning? These questions blitz through your mind, followed by a nagging sense of doubt; and you… sigh, knowing that there will be no sleep until you check.
Nissan urges you to stay in bed - and reach instead for your phone.
As the NY Daily News explains, Nissan seeks to simplify the performance process - fusing its 2018 LEAF with an exclusive tech service. It delivers a direct connection between the hatchback and the driver’s phone, creating a custom app suite that provides real-time responses. Press a button to access comprehensive vehicle information (all streamed digitally to Apple or Android interfaces):
Remaining Drive-Range - this NissanConnect tool will monitor the battery, noting how many miles its current change levels can yield.
Plug-In Reminders - the system will notify drivers of low power levels and when to charge their batteries.
Automated Power - this application can be programed to initiate the charge process, with the LEAF’s port system identifying off-peak electricity rate hours and drawing energy more efficiently from the home.
Completion Notices - the system will alert users when the battery is fully charged, sparing them the need to repeatedly check the port.
With the release of the 2018 LEAF, Nissan embraces convenience: allowing drivers to devote their thoughts to more than energy levels. Utilize this Connect service (which is available for free for the first six months of ownership) to take control of every lithium-ion cell.
To learn more about the new LEAF and its battery tools contact our team today.
With the release of the 2018 LEAF, Nissan delivered more than convenient hatchback styling to Seattle. It also offered class-leading tech - with the entire chassis fused with electric capability and lithium-ion support. Beneath the hood waits a suite advanced autonomous features... and they’ve just received an award.
IEEE Spectrum - a leading online tech magazine - has just named the 2018 LEAF as one of the year’s best cars, carving a place for it within its coveted Top Ten list.
According to IEEE, the new LEAF proves a technological showcase for all-electric performance. It combines a 110-kilowatt motor with a 40-kilowatt battery system - generating a robust 147 HP and 236 lb.-ft of torque. A DC charge port system provides quick responses, with Nissan fusing it with exclusive vehicle-to-grid capabilities (this allows drivers to transfer the platform’s power directly to their homes, reducing consumption levels during peak usage times). Available solar-array panels further impress, delivering sustainable performance regeneration.
What truly distinguishes the 2018 LEAF, however, is its ProPilot system - which yields an intuitive experience on the highway. Lane departure warnings pair radar sensors with automated steerage to ensure optimum vehicle alignments; while forward collision software monitors traffic patterns, identifying sudden obstacles and decelerating to provide drivers ample response times. High-definition cameras further improve safety, tracking the distance of both rear and frontal cars. By gauging those positions, these systems can then create a safe speed setting.
These automated features won the admiration of the IEEE committee - and we know they’ll also prove popular with our customers. Visit our dealership today to learn more about the 2018 LEAF and its many tech options.

With consumer interest for all-electric vehicles growing and with tougher emissions regulations expected to come into play, Nissan has announced that it will be ramping up its EV production over the next few years. Dubbed “M.O.V.E. to 2022”, the automaker plans to launch as many as eight new fully electric cars within the next four years, building on the success of its best-selling Leaf. Nissan also has plans to introduce additional EVs in China by participating in various joint ventures.
According to industry buzz, these vehicles will include a new C-segment EV this year, which will be derived from the Leaf, as well as an affordable new A-segment EV, similar to the Fiat 500. Nissan’s Infiniti brand is also expected to electrify its entire lineup by 2021.
The ultimate goal of Nissan’s “M.O.V.E. to 2022” is to sell one million electrified vehicles annually by 2022. If you do the math, that’s six times more than the number of EVs the automaker sold last year. It's an aspiring objective, but one the company welcomes.
According to Philippe Klein, Nissan’s Chief Planning Officer, “Our product and technology strategy is dedicated to positioning Nissan to lead the automotive, technology and business evolution. Our efforts are focused on delivering Nissan Intelligent Mobility, encompassing the three core elements of electrification, autonomous drive, connectivity and new mobility services.”
Little more is known at this time, but this is a developing story that we are following closely. As more news is released, we’ll be sure to keep our Kirkland Nissan customers updated on our blog. To learn more about our current line-up of all-electric vehicles, including the all-new 2018 Leaf, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington for a test drive.

Nissan has reason to celebrate – as does the world. The all-new Leaf was just awarded the 2018 World Green Car title at the New York Auto Show! With this win, the Leaf becomes the first all-electric vehicle to drive off with the prize.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf beat out the BMW 530e iPerformance and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, solidifying the EV as a world-favorite for plug-in battery power. And, truly, we’re not surprised!
Upon receiving the award, Nissan’s Daniele Schillaci, Executive Vice President, Global Marketing and Sales, Zero Emission Vehicle and Battery Business, affirmed, “We’re very proud that since the Nissan Leaf launched in 2010, we’ve been able to put more than 300,000 zero-emission electric vehicles on the road worldwide, helping to reduce carbon footprints around the globe. We’re honored to be recognized by this esteemed jury and are proud to continue to expand the vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
The 2018 Nissan Leaf quickly rose to the top amongst the list of five initial category entries. It was also the only pure electric vehicle in the running. Judges measured the overall environmental impact, such as tailpipe emissions and fuel consumption, for each contender before selecting the overall winner.
Over seven years ago, the first-gen Nissan Leaf stole the title for World Car of the Year in 2011, so it’s quite fitting that the EV has come full circle once again, but now sporting better range, performance and smarter technology.
If you’d like to drive off a winner too, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to go for a spin in a 2018 Leaf. Our inventory is stocked with options – make one yours today.
Within every Nissan office hangs a banner - a collection of bright colors and brand stickers, with 1,000,000 stretched across in a big, bold font. This is no arbitrary number. Instead it serves as a future goal, reminding both sales representatives and engineers to come together for an EV push like no other.
Nissan intends to turn its LEAF trim into a global force - and we think it will succeed.
As Fortune explains, Nissan has recently unveiled a plan to transform the automotive world - sending its 2018 LEAF to China, Thailand, and other southeast Asia ports. This expansion of its electric line is to accommodate the rising interest in economy platforms, introducing consumers to class-leading performance (including a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery and a 110-kW AC synchronous motor, both of which deliver a single-charge drive-range of 151 miles). This platform will serve as a perfect showcase of smart mobility.
It will also help to usher in worldwide domination.
Spurred by the 2018 LEAF’s recent success, Nissan intends to propel its EV line-up forward - by achieving 1,000,000 annual sales by 2020. Positive reactions to its latest 240-volt battery system has proven the viability of plug-in platforms; and it believes it can redefine the entire market. By emphasizing superior economy (112 MPGe) and dynamic power (147 HP), the brand can change public perception and develop an entirely new demographic base.
Expect to see the LEAF conquer every chart by 2020.

Nissan is back with another exciting collaboration with the legendary Hollywood automotive fabricators at Vehicle Effects – the same designers that created the seven "Star Wars: The Last Jedi”-inspired cars at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
But this time, Nissan didn’t reveal “The Force” – they unveiled a trio of 2018 Leaf concept cars, inspired by “A Wrinkle in Time.” This collaboration celebrates the automaker’s partnership with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, which produced the film.
These one-of-a-kind Leaf vehicles use advanced LED technology to create a mesmerizing light show effect similar to the one seen in the movie. With breakthrough technology being a key part of the storyline, collaborating with the Nissan Leaf was a natural fit. After all, the cornerstone of the Leaf EV is the inclusion of revolutionary technologies, like ProPilot, which relieves the stresses of highway driving for motorists.
According to CarScoops, all three modified Nissan Leafs use design elements inspired by the extravagant costumes worn by the film's characters, including Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon). Custom touch-sensitive screens covering the windshield and side windows also act as a stage for the interactive light show, which mimics the "wrinkle" effect from the movie. Additionally, the concept cars are equipped with heat-sensing cameras that track and react to approaching users.
Unfortunately for Disney fans, these Leaf show vehicles are not for sale. However, they do celebrate a new world of technology, which can be found on stock 2018 Leaf models.
To learn more, please contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to speak with a member of our sales team or to schedule a test drive in an all-new Leaf EV.

By now, you've heard all of the amazing things that the Nissan Leaf can do: it eliminates gas costs with its plug-in performance, it can drive 150 miles on a single charge, and it can even let motorists accelerate, decelerate and stop their car by using the accelerator pedal alone. All pretty impressive, right?
Well, now, the Leaf is up to its latest endeavor - partaking in the Electric Explorer African Challenge 2018, which is the first-ever EV expedition across Africa.
Driven by Polish traveler, Arkady Paweł Fiedler, and accompanied by photographer Albert Wójtowicz, the two men will traverse great distances in an unmodified Leaf, starting in Western Africa and finally crossing western Europe to their home country. Poor road conditions, limited charging infrastructure and dramatically diverse weather conditions are sure to make their trek a challenge, but the adventurers are confident.
"We're optimistic," said Fiedler in a press release. "As part of the tests, I've already travelled over 4,000 kilometers in Poland in a Nissan Leaf, and I'm positively surprised by the driving range offered."
Apart from being the first ever EV journey across the African continent, the expedition also aims to raise awareness of plug-in technologies that are now available to the masses. The goal is to show consumers that they have a choice - all of which has a great impact on the earth and our environment.
Curious to see how well the Leaf fares? You can follow along with Fiedler's journey on Facebook and Instagram.

It’s a tradition of dull lines - with the electric market defined by bulky plastics and unforgiving vinyls. Great efficiency demands a sacrifice of design, and drivers resign themselves to hastily crafted cabins.
Nissan thinks it’s time for a change - which is why it’s offering Seattle families the sleek style they crave, bolstering its 2018 LEAF S with a brand-new interior! Let’s take a peek inside.
Open the door of the 2018 LEAF S and smile. The days of bland design are gone - with this all-electric platform boasting plush cloth seating (which, as Kelley Blue Book notes, delivers metallic-inspired coloring and available contrast stitching). The soft-materials of the dashboard and center stack console feature a taupe-scheme, while a seven-inch instrument gauge offers vivid LCD lighting. A slick rotary-style transmission provides a retro-touch, and aluminum accents are found throughout.
Nissan believes that variety is the spice of life - which is why it’s fused the 2018 LEAF S with several distinct color options. Drivers can create a custom cabin by choosing: Light Gray, Solid Black, or Black and Blue.
With the release of the 2018 LEAF, Nissan allows drivers to achieve mid-size styling in the EV market. To learn more about the S' available cabin features contact our team today.
