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 !

It’s a baffling collection of sharp turns and sudden angles - with your eyes jumping between obstacles, trying to decipher the concrete maze. This downtown adventure has left you overwhelmed, and you wonder how you’re meant to find a parking space.
Nissan suggests utilizing its Around View system - as provided in the 2018 Rogue Sport.
As St. Louis Today explains, the new Rogue Sport delivers more than all-terrain value. Instead its Around View monitor enables drivers to navigate suburban streets and city lanes with equal ease - delivering 360-degrees of protection. Activate the console by shifting into reverse. Immediately the four body-mounted cameras will engage, yielding a bird’s-eye perspective of the surrounding environment; while the eight-inch touchscreen will stream high-definition video. Gridlines will then appear, each boasting a unique color to warn operators of potential concerns:
Dual Green Lines - an approaching object in approximately 10 feet from the car.
Single Green Line - an approaching object is approximately 7 feet from the car.
Single Yellow Line - an approaching object is approximately 3 feet from the car.
Single Red Line - an approaching object is approximately 1.5 feet from the car.
These intuitive route markers allow drivers to effectively gauge distance, while integrated Moving Object Detection software further bolsters the reversal process - releasing audio and visual warnings if an obstacle is found via radar scan. This suite of class-leading technologies ensures a seamless downtown experience.

The mid-size market is receiving an upgrade - with Nissan expanding the standard features of the 2019 Sentra SV. This sedan promises superior ease, with its interior engineered for passenger comfort and convenience. Compromise no more, Kirkland.
According to CNET, the 2019 Sentra SV has been redefined. A keyless ignition system now anchors the platform, enabling drivers to quickly engage the 1.8L inline-four engine; while automatic climate controls provide dual-zone relief, ensuring that every rider can achieve peerless cabin comfort. Two USB ports have been added to the center-stack, affording greater content options; and a tire monitoring system yields real-time security, constantly assessing air levels and potential tread concerns (this information is streamed through a 5-inch color display). 17-inch alloy wheels also provide a refined ride.
Among the most exciting standard features for the SV, however, is the advanced infotainment system - which now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology. Drivers can seamlessly connect to their devices, utilizing voice-activated commands to access their favorite content. Take advantage of wireless Bluetooth links to download music, stream social feeds, and interact with contact lists.

Searching for a premium sedan experience? Nissan suggests sliding behind the wheel of its 2019 Sentra SR. This mid-size option accommodates everyday demands with ease - connecting Issaquah drivers to the top-tier features they deserve.
According to CNET, the new Sentra SR has been tailored for convenience. Anchoring its chassis are a series of fascia upgrades, each meant to improve highway handling. LED headlamps slice through the dark, while fog lights deliver superior visibility in the early morning haze. A rear spoiler provides precise balance, interrupting wind patterns and decreasing friction (though this, the sedan can achieve smoother accelerations around tight turns); and the alloy wheels now boast beefy 17-inch designs to improve traction on slick surfaces. Disc brakes further enhance performance, offering seamless stoppage by increasing torque ratios among the tires.
Nissan pairs these exterior enhancements with available adaptive cruise control. This system modulates speed, enabling the sedan to more efficiently maneuver through stop-and-go traffic. Following distance is carefully calculated, with metrics based upon the surrounding vehicles and their acceleration patterns; and the brakes are seamlessly engaged should a potential threat be detected via the front-mounted sensors. This promotes a safe experience with every mile.
The 2019 Sentra SR offers dynamic handling to every Issaquah driver. To learn more about this sedan contact our dealership today!

PSIs, over-inflation, under-inflation – does thinking about proper tire pressure make your head spin? For most drivers, this is a fact. But, not following your vehicle’s recommended inflation guide can lead to serious issues, like poor fuel economy or premature tire wear. Over time, these concerns can cost you a great deal.
1.Apply the parking brake, put the vehicle in park, and turn the ignition to accessory mode (the engine should be turned off).
2.Start filling a tire with air and wait for the exterior lights to flash, which indicates that the Easy-Fill Tire Alert is monitoring the change in air pressure.
3.When the correct tire pressure is reached, the Altima’s horn will sound.
4.If you accidentally over-inflated the tire, the horn will honk again and the hazard indicator will flash three times.
Neat, right? The Altima’s Easy-Fill Tire Alert is another fine example of the many technologies that are part of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision and how cars are powered, driven and integrated into our society.
To learn more about this ground-breaking technology and how it can improve your ownership experience, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington today.
