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 :)

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.
Great experience buying my 1st Ford
I knew I wanted an Escape and had been shopping online for a few months. I found the vehicle I wanted and made an appointment for a test drive. It happened to be a Key West Ford. I made the appointment online and Jag reached out to me very quickly to set it up.
Jag was very friendly and talkative but certainly not pushy or how you've been trained to think of a used car salesperson. He answered my questions and was generally a nice guy to chat with.
I mentioned very early on what I was looking for but that I wasn't going to making a purchase that day. Even though he knew I wasn't buying he still wanted to make sure I knew everything I could about the vehicle I'd driven as well as anything else I might be looking into a vehicle for. I took his card when I left and made darn sure to get in touch with him once I'd made my decision.
I got a great deal from Jag and Key West Ford and would recommend you going to talk to him if you're on the fence about a new Ford.
Best experience ever
From the moment I arrived I felt there was something different. All of the staff are amazing, and the best part is the manager agreed to donate to my favourite Charity.

"My FIRST NEW car experience"
My brother, a retired Ford dealership owner did the negotiating for me and found Robert to be excellent to deal with. Key West went above and beyond what they had to do by delivering the car to my door. What a surprise when Robert and his wife Lily were sitting out side with 2 identical race red Ford Focuses. I felt quite confident that they owned one too. Robert took me over to the insurance office to get the paperwork down and then back to explain the car to me. I am on FB with both Robert and Lily now. I didn't feel like I was dealing with a "pushy" salesperson but a genuine man who cares about his customers. Although I am 72 years old and this is my first new but probably last car I would highly recommend Robert and the dealership to anyone who would ask me.

It’s an obscure view. You peer around a bulky A-Pillar, trying to gauge the distance between your car and the curb. Your neck strains; your eyes squint; and… you still can’t determine just how many inches separate you from a sudden collision.
According to My San Antonio, the 2019 Altima SV delivers intuitive support to drivers - with Nissan fusing it with an Automatic Rear Braking system. Radar sensors flank the back bumper, releasing GPS-refined signals to asses the surrounding terrain. Real-time mapping functions then create a 3D representation of the area, noting the location of both stationary and moving objects. Should any of these obstacles venture too close to the sedan, a three-tier process will begin:
One: Audio cues will be released, alerting drivers to the presence of a potential threat (such as an approaching car or a parking garage pillar).
Two: The ABS system will engage, with gentle pressure applied to the brakes to smoothly decelerate the Altima and avoid a collision.
Three: The seat-belts will subtly tighten, helping to steady passengers and reduce the effects of whiplash.
Automatic Rear Braking provides autonomous aid - allowing drivers to more efficiently respond to situations and negating the chance of a crash. Through its advanced radar technology, this system promotes safety with every reversal; and it launches the Altima SV to the front of the mid-size pack, branding it an ideal option for families.

Absurdity reigns supreme of social streams - with users inundated with endless gifs, clips, and random musings. Hours are wasted wading through the virtual chaos each day.
Nissan proves, however, that there is value in tweeting - because the 2018 Armada Mountain Patrol has arrived.
According to CNET, Nissan has launched a unique automotive experience - allowing its social media followers to design an entire crossover! The 2018 Armada Mountain Patrol (a concept vehicle that will soon begin the circuit rounds) was pieced together by driver input. Men and women flooded the Twitter-sphere with a series of off-road suggestions… and these were then implemented into the ultimate all-terrain option.
The Mountain Patrol rests on 17-inch Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Its sport-tuned suspension delivers a nine-inch ground clearance (allowing the platform to propel itself over every terrain), while rock sliders protect the sides from debris. Steel bumpers anchor the front and rear; an LED light-bar cuts through the dark; and a hefty 12,000-pound winch frames the back, allowing drivers to effortlessly connect to every Class IV trailer.
To further impress, this Armada also features a Lowrance navigation system - which delivers turn-by-turn route planning and real-time environmental monitoring to ensure seamless travels. Drivers can easily interface with this suite via the eight-inch LCD touchscreen, taking advantage of its streaming forecasts, traffic alerts, and gridline support.
Every detail of the 2018 Mountain Patrol is tailored for the off-road experience… and defined by passengers. The automotive world will never be the same.

It’s an all too familiar rhythm - with your car stopping-starting-stalling its way down the lane. You jerk constantly in your seat, unable to fight against the friction; and a simple commute becomes an unwanted thrill-ride.
Nissan seeks to change this - planning a fully autonomous experience by 2020.
According to the NY Daily News, Nissan intends to bolster its fleet with the ProPilot system - an automated suite that utilizes advanced radar sensors and high-definition cameras to monitor traffic patterns. Speed and lane trajectories are carefully assessed, and then the steering column is engaged to ensure smooth handling in stop-and-go scenarios. All acceleration is intuitively controlled to provide a refined cabin experience.
Currently, the ProPilot is only available in select platforms (including the Rogue and LEAF). Soon, however, it will anchor more than 20 vehicles - with Nissan intending to improve the highway experience for every driver. By 2020 this suite will deliver speed moderation and total transmission control to the: Altima, Armada, X-Trail, and more (a full list should be revealed by the end of the summer).
This will assure superior handling on the road - with drivers able to rely on Intelligent Cruise Control (which provides custom speed settings) to simplify their travels. The ProPilot system, according to Nissan, is intended to reduce stress and increase performance; and its seamless steering and ABS engagements brand it ideal for fickle traffic.

Great news, Seattle SUV shoppers – the U.S. News & World Report recently ranked the 2018 Nissan Armada on their top five list of large SUVs, confirming what we have always known here at Kirkland Nissan. Americans still love their big, burly vehicles, especially ones that deliver powerful V8 performance, like the Armada.
So, what did the U.S. News & World Report rave about Nissan’s signature large SUV? Right off the bat, they noted the Armada for its strong performance and towing capacity. It is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine, which outputs a serious 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the Armada can tow up to 8,500 pounds. If you like recreational toys, that’s ample capacity to haul ATVs, dirt bikes, or even a small boat.
The 2018 Armada also scored top marks for its expansive second-row seats and well-built cabin, which features capacity for seven or eight passengers, depending on whether you choose the available second-row bucket seats. Even at highway speeds, the Armada delivers a quiet cabin, which is outfitted with many high-end features, like a leather-wrapped four-spoke steering wheel, cooled front seats, Bluetooth, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system. To help you navigate busy parking lots, a standard rearview mirror displays live video footage from the rear of the vehicle.

Built on a stock 2018 Armada, this all-wheel drive SUV offers huge performance from its burly 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine, which is rated at a best-in-class 390-horsepower and boasts a monstrous 8,500-lb towing capacity.

If you drive an older model Leaf all-electric vehicle and are looking to replace the battery pack, you’ll be pleased to hear that Nissan will be offering rebuilt packs this month.
Currently, the refurbished power cells are only available in Japan; however, Nissan is investigating whether or not they can expand the program to the United States. Based on data from Green Car Reports, the cost for each rebuilt pack is $2,850 in Japan, which is more economical than replacing with a new battery at $6,500.
At the moment, Nissan’s program only covers 24-kWh batteries, but the automaker does have plans to begin recycling 30- and 40-kWh batteries, which are found in newer model year Leaf EVs and boast a longer range.
According to Nissan, their new battery recycling plant in Naime, Japan, is the first such factory recycling lithium-ion batteries. Naime is the region devastated by the earthquake and tsunami that melted down nuclear reactors in Fukushima. The plant will also recycle batteries from forklifts and large-scale storage systems and turn used electric car batteries into power plants for other industrial uses.

According to a recent press release, Nissan is planning to expand its innovative ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving system to additional models. The first U.S. Nissan to have the equipment added is the Rogue Sport, beginning in late 2018.
To date, ProPILOT Assist is offered on more than 120,000 vehicles sold around the world with customers taking a fast liking to the technology. Expanding the semi-autonomous driving system to other Nissan models, like the Rogue Sport, is only going to continue to grow. Additional vehicles will adopt the technology, expanding to 20 models and 20 markets within the next four years. This is all part of the automaker's midterm plan, dubbed Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022.
"ProPILOT Assist is an iconic technology for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, [our] vision of how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society," said Philippe Klein, Nissan's Chief Planning Officer. "Its acceptance by consumers has been beyond expectations, and we're pleased to expand its availability to more popular models, such as Altima, X-Trail and Rogue Sport."
This video explains more about how the system works:
ProPILOT Assist is currently offered on the 2018 Leaf and Rogue, which are both available for test driving at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington. To experience the technology for yourself, visit our dealership today.
The rule is simple - if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Critics and drivers seek always to preserve their beloved engines, reveling in every familiar rumble and transmission shift. Change, they feel, is dangerous. It puts each rev at risk, potentially stripping away torque and lessening horsepower. When perfection has been achieved cease all production strategies.
Nissan - respectfully - disagrees.
According to STL Today, the 2019 Altima will soon arrive in Washington… and it’s bringing a new engine with it. Nissan has fitted this sedan with a 2.5L inline-four. This powerpoint combines natural aspiration (which yields steady performance, sparing drivers the frustration of turbo-lag) with a lightweight aluminum design (the casing is now more efficient, demanding less fuel to reach the redline). Approximately 80% of the entire block has been revised; and this has ensured premium capability, with this sedan generating 188 HP and 180 lb.-ft of torque.
Still wary of change? Nissan reminds drivers that the 2019 Altima’s predecessor offered only 179 HP and 177 lb.-ft of torque. Even the redline has been improved, extending to 4000 RPM with every shift of the X-Tronic automatic transmission. This mid-size model (which now boasts monotube rear shocks to deliver balanced handling on each terrain) is ready to fly.
Want to take it for a ride? Visit our dealership today to learn more about the 2019 Altima. We’ll happily prove why change can indeed be a very good thing.
In a galaxy far, far away a hero flies - weaving between cannon blasts and tracking beams, outwitting Imperial soldiers and mercenaries alike. Han Solo is on the move… and he’s coming to Seattle.
According to The Drive, Nissan is ready to welcome everyone’s favorite galactic rascal to our planet - by offering him the ultimate getaway ride. In an exclusive promotion with Disney and Lucasfilm, the 2018 Rogue Millenium Falcon has been unveiled. This crossover (which arrives just in time for Solo: A Star Wars Story) has been fused with classic cinema style, proving perfect for escaping the Empire or a simple trip downtown.
Nissan has fused the Rogue with handcrafted panels - with their aluminum-composite materials molded into a distinct Millenium Falcon design. The hood has been raised; the grille has been shortened; and a wide-arching frame now anchors the windshield, with 3D cut-outs enabling drivers to see any wookie that may cross their path. Atop the high roofline is a radar dish, while a cannon sits at the rear to defend against any potential enemies. The wheels have been bolstered with amor-inspired plates to further emphasize the Star Wars theme.
The effect is undeniable... and unforgettable. The 2018 Rogue Millenium Falcon edition delivers a space-worthy profile from every angle.
Standard no longer proves a dull word - suggesting tedious options and limited technologies. Instead Nissan has fused its 2018 Pathfinder SL with a dynamic suite of features, ensuring premium comfort with every mile. Prepare, Tacoma, to be impressed.
According to the Leesville Daily Leader, the 2018 Pathfinder SL promises superior comfort. Anchoring its cabin is a wide array of standard features - each allowing riders to better enjoy their adventures. The seats are leather-appointed and boast power lumbar support; while soft-touch materials line the walls and dash. Integrated heating functions bolster both the cushions and the steering wheel, countering even the chilliest mornings; and tri-zone automatic climate controls pair with a comprehensive micro-filter to maintain precise air quality.
To further ensure comfort on long Washington trips the 2018 Pathfinder SL delivers an expansive cabin, yielding:
Front Row Leg Room: 42.2 inches.
Second Row Leg Room: 41.7 inches.
Third Row Leg Room: 30.7 inches.
This crossover can effortlessly accommodate up to seven riders, with its 114.2-inch wheelbase ensuring ample space. Indulge in a class-leading tri-row design with every press of the pedal.
