Ivan and Derrick made buying an F150 as easy as can be! I will definitely return and deal with Ivan and Derrick in the future.
Peter pulled out all the stops to local the perfect vehicle for us! The original deal could not go ahead due to unforseen circumstances and Peter worked a mircle to find the exact same vehicle at another dealership and arrange for it to be delivered to Key West Ford and we were able to pick it up 2 days earlier than we thought would happen! Our dealings with Peter made us very confidant that we had chosen the right dealership to go to.

My husband had initially gone to setup a service appointment for our Ford Edge. He started looking around at newer models. Peter was very courteous and helpful. We found a new Ford Edge and love it. Nick, who helped out with financing went above and beyond in helping us find a plan that was workable for us.

Many thanks to Pete, Wes and the service team for making this purchase as simple as possible. Would not hesitate to do business with in the future.
Got me exactly what I wanted for a very good price
I shopped around very well, I met very helpful sales associates at other dealers, and some sales associates at other dealers that tried to put me into "close to what I wanted". Peter Olson and Robert Claus never even suggested a close match, it was always about finding the perfect one. I am very happy with the truck, and I have to say it was so nice to have Peter do a complete, unrushed, and very thorough demonstration of all, and there a lot of things to demonstrate, features during the delivery. The truck was already sold and he followed through making sure that I am happy.
xxxxxxto Kal Bhatti the Sales Manager also, he made the numbers work on my trade and on the unit I purchased. I don' think of myself as a strong negotiator but I really feel that I go the best deal possible Feel a little like I ground them down pretty hard actually. I'll buy my wife's next car here in a few months as well. ILike I say, I was at a lot of other dealers looking, Key West came out on top
Most Common Nissan Vehicle Questions In Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
I dig the look of the 2018 Nissan Titan XD Platinum Reserve. I was hoping you could clarify what the various specs of the machine are for me? I may be looking to make a purchase in the near future.
Thanks for your question! Here’s the deal on the 2018 Titan XD Platinum Reserve: It’s fast, powerful, and filled with smart systems that greatly bolster safety. It starts with the engine—the truck comes with a 5.6L Endurance V8 that creates 390 HP at 5,800 RPM (revolutions per minute) and 394 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4,000 RPM. This enables a sporty feel with brisk acceleration, creating a pickup with mighty muscle that is also enjoyable to drive on a day-to-day basis.
The 2018 Nissan Titan XD Platinum Reserve is more than just a powerful motor, though. It comes with a myriad of safety features, including NissanConnect. This is notable because it’s an intelligent system that steps in on your behalf in the event of a crash. If you are involved in a collision, the technology will automatically get in touch with an emergency response specialist.
I’m really into the all-electric craze and, as you’d expect, I’ve included Nissan’s LEAF on my “short list” of EVs I’m considering. I’m wondering if you could apprise me of the performance numbers native to the 2019 SV trim?
Thanks so much for contacting me! Yes, the 2019 Nissan LEAF SV is a very attractive all-electric vehicle, isn’t it? The reasons for that are multifaceted but performance does indeed lead the way here. It is outfitted with an electric motor paired with a 40-kWh battery pack for a total output of 147 HP. Importantly, you can now drive as much as 150 miles on one charge before stopping, making it efficient and practical.
The 2019 LEAF SV holds other wonders beyond its motor performance, Steph. It’s high-tech, with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay built in to accommodate your smartphone. Further, NissanConnect is included—it will actually contact an emergency response specialist on your behalf in the event of a collision. Plus, navigation is built-in to keep you on your way.
My 2011 Nissan Titan has been giving me some serious trouble lately and I’m having issues steering it—it feels stiff and unwieldy. Any thoughts as to the problem?
Appreciate it, Decker
Steering issues with vehicles that are starting to get a little “long in the tooth” are not exactly uncommon. Here are a couple of the most likely culprits behind the stiff steering in your 2011 Nissan Titan:
A lack of steering system fluid. Your 2011 Nissan Titan may simply lack the necessary amount of steering fluid—if the levels drop too much, your wheel is going to be effectively fighting you every time you take your pickup out on the road. Lowered steering solution is often a result of a leak in the pressurized hose area or a loosening of that hose that in turn drops the pressure and reduces the power supply.
The steering system fluid in your Titan is too thick. If this is the case, it’s a quality issue, not a quantity problem. Built-up dirt and debris in the fluid may be the issue, requiring the system to be flushed.
I’ve heard tell of the phenomenon but I don’t quite think I have a grasp of it: What are evaporative leaks?
Thanks for your question! Evaporative leaks, whether on a Nissan vehicle like the Titan, Armada, or something else entirely, refer to a fuel expansion. This can occur in the tank of an automobile when it is acted upon by outside forces—most typically external temperatures. Granted, modern machines come with a venting system that is designed to mitigate this problem and drastically reduce any resulting pollution that would otherwise leak out into the environment. However, it is important to note that, like with any technology, this system can fail and an evaporative leak can occur.
Bear in mind, however, that one of the most common causes of an evaporative leak is a damaged or loose gas cap. Of course, these can be easily replaced for just a few dollars.
Call us at Kirkland Nissan with any other questions you may have, Stewart! We’re eager to help out with any of your queries or set you up with a service appointment.
Quick question: I’m a little concerned about the temperature gauge in my 2012 Nissan Titan. On a trip yesterday, it read a little high as I was returning home at the end of the day. I haven’t had the need to take the truck out today but figured I’d get your thoughts ahead of potentially having it looked at.
Thanks for checking in—and it’s fantastic that you already plan on having your 2013 Nissan Titan checked out! As you know, high-temperature readings are nothing to sneeze at, as the underlying issue may be, quite frankly, catastrophic if not attended to. Here are a few of the most likely issues:
Your thermostat may simply be malfunctioning/failing! In this case, you’re off the hook. The truck itself is fine and operating normally—you’re just getting a false temperature reading. This can be fixed up in a jiffy with a coolant temperature switch replacement.
Your water pump or water pump gasket may be on its way out. This, of course, would necessitate a more significant repair.
Your pickup may be leaking coolant. Keep in mind that even a slight leak can have a profound effect, so check your coolant level and/or look under your pickup to determine if there’s a leak.
Your Titan’s engine may be overheating.
We recommend taking your truck in immediately just in case, Bill. Call us with any further questions!
I’m a bit concerned about one of my older Nissan vehicles. How much oil consumption is too much? I feel the car may be reaching that point but I’m honestly unsure.
Great question! While increasing oil consumption over the life of a car is a fact we all have to accept, at some juncture, the amount of oil used may become too great no matter how old the car is. Whether you’re in a modern Nissan automobile or any other, you should only use about one half of a quart of oil for every three to five thousand miles. If your car is particularly new, it may use even less! Contrarily, if you have a machine that’s truly long in the tooth, it’s fine to use a full quart every 1,000 to 1,500, but that should be considered the absolute extreme. Anything more than that—old car or not—and you have a problem on your hands that should be taken care of and diagnosed by a professional.
So, I know my 2011 Nissan Titan is getting a little long in the tooth and figured I’d ask ahead of time. If the check engine light comes on, what’s the most likely issue? Trying to plan/budget for repairs in advance, if possible.
Great question! Sadly, it’s difficult to pin down one “most likely” issue related to your check engine light. Keep in mind that, surprisingly, your 2011 Nissan Titan’s warning light may come on simply because of a loose gas cap, so be sure to check that first before freaking out—it’s far from uncommon. If it’s not your gas cap, though, there’s a deeper issue afoot. Here are some likely possibilities:
Malfunctioning Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). This occurs when the unit that monitors engine airflow is damaged due to malfunctioning O2 sensors, spark plugs, the catalytic converter, etc. The result may be a drop in fuel efficiency.
Malfunctioning Oxygen (O2) sensor. Specifically, if this sensor becomes damaged, not only will engine efficiency drop but the spark plugs and or catalytic converter are likely to become an issue.
Faulty spark plugs/wires. If either the spark plug wires or the plugs themselves become worn, the catalytic converter may become clogged and overall engine performance will take a hit.
Note, Sterling, that a mechanic can use your car’s diagnostic port to determine the exact issue. Ring us today with any further questions!

I’ve noticed that there's a squeaking noise coming from my 2018 Nissan Titan XD when it’s warming up. I can sometimes hear it while I'm driving: do you know what’s causing it?
It sounds like there might be a problem with one of the engine belts in your 2018 Nissan Titan XD.
If you hear a high-pitched squeal when warming up and while driving it’s often due to a problem with the vehicle’s serpentine belt. This component is more than likely worn out or loose on your 2018 Nissan Titan XD.
If this is the issue with your truck, it will only get worse over time. When the belt starts to break, you will hear a flapping sound as it strikes other components under the hood.
Unless you take care of the issue, the serpentine belt will eventually fail completely. When it does, you’ll lose your vehicle’s power steering, alternator, and air conditioner. Of course, this is one of the last things you want to happen while you're driving.
My advice is to call down to our Service Department and let the Technicians inspect your vehicle.
Thanks for your question, Darren! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington again if you ever need anything else.

It feels like the brakes are dragging on my 2018 Nissan Kicks. There is constant resistance, even after I release the pedal. My friend thinks there might be a problem with the hoses: could he be right?
A lot of issues may cause your 2018 Nissan Kicks’ brakes to drag but your friend could be correct. Having a problem with one or multiple hoses could be to blame.
If a hose or line is pinched or kinked, pressure can become trapped in it after the brake pedal has been released.
When you apply the brakes, the pressure is high enough so that it can bypass the kink in the line. But, as you let off the pedal, the master cylinder can’t supply enough force to push the fluid back.
Over time, this will wear out your brake pads and rotors. It will also cause your Kicks’ gas mileage to fall. My advice is to bring your vehicle down to our Service Department at your earliest convenience and let our Technicians inspect it.
Thanks for your question, James! Please don’t hesitate to contact Kirkland Nissan, Washington again if you ever need anything else.
