Pretty Good So Far
I purchased a 2017 Taurus SHO on Oct 20. Whole transaction from test drive to driving off the lot with my new car, was relatively painless. Only issue was a missing owners manual, which they said they would find and mail to me. A few days later, I received a call from Michael Nokes (an excellent sales mgr), stating that they could not find it and ordered a new one for me. Awesome. A month later, I finally had enough of the waiting and called them again wondering why I hadn't received it. "Oh... it just came in". Riiiiight... LOL. Regardless, I am happy. The only other issue I have is that, I was told my car came with Ford Pass. It does not. The Fusion Sport I was also interested in, did. So a little (a lot) disappointed about that, but I think the salesman was new and didn't know all the features that the different models have. The Taurus (even my SHO), does NOT come with Ford Pass. Sigh.
My only other complaint is with the financing. I read on their website of rates at 4 or so percent. I was given a rate of almost 7 %. As a federal employee with 30 years service in law enforcement and nearly no mortgage, and NO other debt, I expected better. A call and email to Michelle inquiring about this, garnered no response, so I took it upon myself to call Coast Capital Savings and today signed a contract for 4.25% .......much better!
Car has so far performed excellent. As for service, too soon to tell. I have not reached the mileage required for an oil change etc.
Overall, I am happy with Key West and would recommend them to others.
Painless car purchase
Jeff Upton and the team at Key West Ford Sales were great to deal with. They were super helpful and responsive to all questions, and went the distance to make a deal. There was no pressure at any point along the way. I have bought cars before and often came away feeling somehow fleeced....NOT the case here.

If you think slashing your emissions means compromising on performance, think again. There are all-electric vehicles available on the market that produce zero emissions and are pleasant to drive, just like their gasoline counterparts. If this sounds like an ideal solution for you, allow us to introduce the 2013 Nissan Leaf S.
This plug-in performer is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an 80kW motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to the front wheels via a single-speed reduction gear, enabling a 0-to-60-mph acceleration in less than 10 seconds with a top speed of 90 mph.
And instead of stopping at the gas station for traditional fossil fuels, the 2013 Leaf can be recharged for as little as three dollars. On a full "fill", you can expect to achieve 84 miles, which is more than enough range for Seattle area commuters that travel short distances to work or stay-at-home parents or seniors who hustle between school, extra-curricular activities and local errands.
But, one of the greatest features of the 2013 Nissan Leaf S is how well it behaves on the road. As you drive, its operation is virtually silent thanks to the whisper-quiet motor under the hood. The Leaf also lacks the unnatural brake feel found in other vehicles with regenerative braking systems. Instead, when you apply pressure to the brakes, the Leaf is responsive and quick to react, thus serving up a more spirited driving experience.
With a 2013 Leaf S in your driveway, compromise will be a thing of the past. To schedule your test drive, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

You're meeting a friend downtown for dinner and are running a few minutes late. All municipal parking lots are full, leading you back onto the main thoroughfare to find a spot on the road. As you inch your way along, you can feel dread setting in. You'd rather abandon your plans altogether than embarrass yourself with your horrible parallel parking skills.
Can you relate? Then allow us to introduce you to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-performer comes equipped with an Around View Monitor, which takes the strain out of navigating busy streets and parking lots.
It works by providing a virtual bird's-eye view of your surroundings, so you can see where you need to go even when your line of sight is compromised. The Around View Monitor uses four wide-angle cameras set up on the front, rear, left and right corners of the vehicle, providing a full 360-degree panorama. As you back in and out of your spot, you can do so with confidence, since every angle of your vehicle is visible, along with any potential hazards.

A common misconception is that all-electric vehicles, while incredibly efficient, often leave a lot to be desired when it comes to comfort. But in actuality, that misconception couldn’t be further from the truth.
Take the 2015 Nissan Leaf S, for example. This mid-size EV boasts a spacious interior that’s generous, cozy and great for Seattle area families, with space for up to five passengers.
The exterior of the 2015 Leaf is thoughtfully designed to maximize fuel efficiency with an aerodynamic body that reduces drag and wind noise and promotes airflow. It’s practical and functional by nature, yet sleek and stylish too.
Inside, the Leaf S features a well thought out cabin that’s styled to maximize comfort. Riding on a 106.3-inch wheelbase, it provides an ample two-row design, boasting an impressive total passenger compartment volume of 92.4 cu. ft.
Headroom: 41.2 inches
Legroom: 42.1 inches
Hip Room: 51.7 inches
Shoulder Room: 54.3 inches
Headroom: 37.3 inches
Legroom: 33.3 inches
Hip Room: 50.0 inches
Shoulder Room: 52.5 inches
In the rear cargo area, the Leaf is equipped with a spacious trunk that can hold loads of groceries, baggage or sporting equipment with ease. With the second row seats in an upright position, you can count on 23.6 cu. ft. of room or 30 cu. ft. with the seats folded flat. How’s that for versatility?

The time has arrived – your beloved ride that ushered you from singlehood to parenthood has been called to the used car lot. You’re in the market, once again, for a new vehicle.
But, as you research specs, reviews and top ten lists, you notice that something has changed. When you used to care about horsepower, torque and acceleration, now it is ease of child seats, collision prevention and crash protection. Your need for power and speed has diminished; what you desire is safety.
Allow us to turn your attention to the 2014 Nissan Leaf SV. This all-electric plug-in car is designed with your family’s safety in mind by providing class-leading technologies that help keep you out of harm’s way – each and every mile.
Standard safety systems on the SV trim include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant classification sensor. There’s also front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.
For families with young children, the Leaf comes equipped with a child seat upper tether anchor and a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system. Child safety rear door locks are also standard.
On the road, the Leaf SV relies on a host of active safety features, like Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS), to maintain smooth and safe handling. There is also a standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for added peace of mind.
Efficiency, safety and reliability are hallmarks of the Nissan Leaf. To schedule your test drive in preowned 2014 model, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf isn’t even available for purchase on North American soil, but that hasn’t stopped the EV from collecting global awards and accolades prior to its Seattle release. Most recently, the 2018 Leaf was named a “Best Small Family Car” by the Next Green Car Awards 2017, which recognizes the most environmentally friendly vehicles to debut in the United Kingdom over the last 12 months.
Covering eight different categories, the winners are selected from a shortlist of 32 different models across 18 manufacturers. Winning models cover seven vehicle categories and have all been judged against a range of factors, including environmental, performance and cost criteria. Other considerations, such as suitability for purpose, impact on the market, and value for money, are also taken into account.
The Leaf snagged the same award in 2015 for its 2016 MY rendition, proving what we already know at Kirkland Nissan – the Leaf is built on a solid foundation of excellence and innovation. The 2018 model impressed the judges with its improved range, distinctive design and cutting-edge driving technologies – three factors that families look for when purchasing an all-electric car.
Is your family excited to test drive the 2018 Leaf? Well, good news – you won’t have to wait much longer. The next-gen EV is currently on sale in Japan, but will be arriving at dealerships in North America in just a matter of weeks. As soon as we have inventory, we will be sure to share the news with our customers so that you can schedule a test drive in this family-friendly plug-in.
