We are very happy with the service and support we have received from Robert. We had a lot of questions and needed some extra support with our new Mustang, and Robert was patient, knowledgeable, and efficient, doing whatever it took to make up happy. The whole team at Key West, including Nicholas Terezakis who handled our warranty purchases, have been great to deal with.
We were in good hands. Thanks everyone!

Disappointed. Shocked this is a Ford dealership
Very disappointed,my sons first experience purchasing a new vehicle. Had I known how poor this dealership is I would’ve have convinced him to buy somewhere else. Do not buy from this dealership or this sales manager. Doesn’t care about your complaints. Word of advice test drive at this lot but order and buy from another dealership. You’ll get treated better
Above & Beyond
This fellow is one of a kind. In all my life I’ve never had a good experience at a car dealership until I went to Key West Ford. What an amazing group of people. My focus titanium(2017) is the second purchase that I’ve made off Michael both experiences were something to write home about.
Whether you’re in the market for a Ford or any other kind of vehicle please do yourself a favour and check out the great people at Key West Ford.
Helped me find the car I want
This is my first car purchase. When I came to here, I didn't have a clear idea on what car I shall buy. Allan showed me around on several probable ways to buy my first car. The next day, he also found another car that suit my current need.
As I am new to Canada, there are a lot of differences on law, rules and regulations from the country I was in. Allan provided useful information on all of them and helped me get to a purchase solution that can fit into my short term and long term plan.
Now I have used the car for some time and everything seems good :)
2017 F150 supercrew
Great pricing, very helpful. I'm from out of town and was on a tight schedule. Jag and the rest of the folks at key west were sensitive to my time constraints and had my truck ready for delivery with no hiccups.
We had a small car budget in mind and after talking it over and trying various model we settled for something newer than expected without breaking the bank.
Very happy with my purchase and recommend to anyone looking for a used or new car to start at key West Ford.

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.

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.

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.
You defy the trends - seeking the road less traveled, searching for answers to questions never asked. Common isn’t a word within your lexicon… and the iPhone certainly isn’t in your pocket. Android is instead your device of choice.
Nissan applauds your differences - and wishes to accommodate them through seamless smartphone integration. Check out the 2018 LEAF and its Android Auto system!
According to Nissan, the 2018 LEAF will cater to more than Apple fans. Instead Android users will (finally) find their needs addressed - with the Connect infotainment console proving perfectly compatible. Sync your device and discover endless applications, including:
Google Assistant - utilize voice-commands to access this program, which maintains schedules, records notes, and reads text messages aloud. It acts as a digital secretary while traveling.
Google Maps - this real-time option displays both the road and its conditions, recognizing potential hazards (such as poor weather or reported crashes). It can quickly calculate alternative routes, and it offers turn-by-turn navigation through 3D mapping and interactive GPS.
Music Content - Android Auto boasts a suite of media options, allowing drivers to customize their playlists. Stream songs from Spotify and Pandora; access files from your Google accounts; and use the steering wheel-mounted controls to scan through the AM/FM radio.
The 2018 LEAF delivers an alternative to the iPhone, allowing Android users to maintain seamless connectivity. To learn more contact us today!
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.

In 1962 Madeleine L’Engle introduced readers to her tesseract-world - transporting them across space and dreams alike. A Wrinkle In Time (which charted the adventures of young Meg Murray) brought weighty science-fiction themes to children, allowing them to explore life, death, and love. The book proved an instant success and has remained a steady presence on the charts ever since.
Soon it will also beguile screen audiences - with Disney bringing a live-action version to theaters in March 2018. This adaptation will star Hollywood elite (Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and Oprah Winfrey); and it will also serve as the new Nissan LEAF’s first leading role.
According to Inside EVs, the 2018 LEAF will make its debut in the Wrinkle In Time film. This hatchback will rev onto the screen, providing lithium-ion power to Meg Murray and her friends. Its aerodynamic body - complete with slim side panels and a drag-reducing rear diffuser - will prove perfect for traveling between worlds, effortlessly adapting to every changing incline; while its portable trickle-charge cable will ensure on-the-go ease, delivering a 120-volt connection to bolster the battery. Intelligent Trace Control technology should keep the platform right on track, engaging the tires as needed to ensure smooth cornering; and Active Ride software will mitigate bumps to promote a smooth experience.
Meg and her team will certainly find inter-dimensional travel much easier!

It’s a collection of numbers. Throughout January critics have jotted down every EPA estimation - comparing drive-ranges and mileage promises, trying to decipher the slightest power variations. The impending release of the 2018 LEAF left them anxious for answers. Would this all-electric hatchback deliver the necessary performance? Could Nissan surpass its competitors?
Both questions can be greeted with an enthusiastic Yes.
According to Jalopnik, the 2018 LEAF’s drive-range has just been revealed - and it’s a staggering 151-miles. While this number had been speculated for months, no official confirmation was available… until now. After rigorously testing the 40-kWH battery pack, the EPA assures critics that this Nissan platform will deliver best-in-class power; and it will easily surpass its closest rivals (the Ford Focus Electric, the Honda Clarity, and the Volkswagen e-Golf).
How does it achieve such an impressive performance? Nissan has fused the 2018 LEAF with both a 110-kW AC motor and a 192-cell lithium-ion system. When paired with a shortened gearbox (which improves responses times and eliminates down-shifting), the hatch can rev for more than 150 miles per single full charge. This will brand it a perfect option for Seattle commuters, accommodating their day-to-day needs with ease.

It’s the highest of expectations - with critics tallying every pre-order, calculating potential sales and possible profits. The 2018 LEAF is revving toward Seattle; and behind it trails a long shadow, with the success of its predecessors looming. Can this platform continue the record-breaking pace Nissan has set within the EV market?
We think it can.
According to CNET, anticipation is mounting for the 2018 LEAF - with 13,000 units pre-ordered for the United States. This is an unprecedented number, with none of the previous Nissan platforms delivering such high interest; and critics believe that (when the hatchback arrives later this year) it will zip to the top of the charts.
The Kirkland team agrees. On January 1st we were thrilled to debut the 2018 LEAF to our customers - and the response was both immediate and enthusiastic. Drivers were thrilled by this platform’s innovative all-electric powertrain (which combines a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery with a 110-kW synchronous motor) and exclusive e-pedal system (which eliminates the traditional brake and accelerator design, blending them together instead for a single control unit). The promise of a 100% off-the-line torque experience left them amazed, with all 236 lb.-ft maximized for quick accelerations; while the 240-volt outlet yields charge times as low as one hour.
The 2018 LEAF is poised to dominate the Seattle market - and we can’t wait to see this platform purring down every street. To learn more contact us today.
Above the Nissan threshold once waited a neon sign - its border lined in red, its face angrily glowing. Across its insides read 300,000 and every zero blazed with fluorescent intensity. This was a milestone that none thought obtainable, a goal no one believed achievable; and each day the number flashed its disappointment.
That has (finally) changed.
According to Electrek, Nissan has just delivered its 300,000 LEAF to the market - making it the world’s best-selling EV platform! Strong responses in the United States and Japan have propelled this hatchback to the top of the charts; and no competitor (including Ford’s Fusion, Toyota’s Prius, or Chevrolet's Malibu Hybrid) has managed to secure such staggering month-to-month growth: with critics noting a jump from 1,457 units in November 2017 to 1,899 units in December 2017.
These numbers prove undeniably impressive - and, with the impending release of the 2018 LEAF, we expect Nissan to remain the leading EV brand. Anchored by a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery, this platform will yield 124 MPGe in the city and 101 MPGe on the highway. Its 150-mile all-electric range will prove perfect for daily commuters, sparing them frequent station visits; while its 147 HP powertrain will ensure peppy traveling. The next generation of performance is on its way.
We believe 300,000 will soon be replaced with 400,000 - with the LEAF leading the sales charge.
