Thank you Sam for taking such good care of me during the purchase of my new Ford Edge. During two separate test drives I found Sam to be full of information and welcomed all my questions. I feel he was truly focused on making sure my car buying experience was a good one with follow up phone calls, sharing links to important information about my new car and even noticing a small flaw on my hood (one I didn’t see). He could have ignored it but instead made sure he put me in touch with his service department for a speedy resolution.
If you want a comfortable car buying experience, look for Sam when you go to Key West Ford.

Have been trying for four days now to get Eric to answer a question I have about a used vehicle. Numerous emails sent to him and he either ignores it or does not answer the question. I have asked him to have another salesperson help me but so far he is ignoring that request too

Interesting Nissan Facts For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
While we enjoy sharing fun facts about the Nissan brand, sometimes we like to zero in on specific car models and see what makes them tick. Today, we want to talk about the 2018 Rogue S and how it is a performance machine decked out with a wide swathe of fine conveniences.
The simple fact is this: the Rogue rocks! It will thrill you thanks to its 2.5L four-cylinder engine, which produces 170 HP in effortless fashion. Even better, the effectively limitless gear ratios of its continuously variable transmission (CVT) allow it to offer the smoothest ride imaginable. You have to experience it yourself to truly understand!
The 2018 Nissan Rogue S is just as nicely outfitted in the cabin as it is under the hood. It comes with front fog lights that enable sensational visibility in difficult, “pea soup” conditions. There’s an outside temperature display to keep you abreast of how the day is shaping up, while the speed-sensing steering adds excellent responsiveness. Plus, you’ll love the entertainment options provided by Sirius XM radio.
The 2018 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL is a heck of an automobile, Kirkland and Seattle residents. It’s stylish and filled with the kind of performance and safety/convenience features that you always hope to encounter when looking into owning an upper-trim sedan. We think you’ll love it!
Neutral tones are all the rage in the automotive world—they look fantastic and appeal to a broad swathe of people—and this Maxima certainly has that angle covered. You can get this sedan in Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, or Super Black exterior paint options. Also, if you wish to instead ensure that you stand out with something bolder, you can invest in the Carnelian Red and Deep Blue shades.
The 2018 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL provides superlative safety features to keep you and your passengers secure. A tire pressure monitoring system ensures you’re kept abreast of the health of your wheels. Automatic headlamps contribute to visibility by always shining, thereby eliminating the risk that you forget to flick on your lights as dusk approaches. A blind-spot warning ensures no other motorist is able to sneak up on either side of you without your notice. And when it comes to conveniences, you’ll love the USB connection point and the inclusion of Bose premium sound.
Nissan is leading the way with vehicle electrification and one of their latest EVs is quite simply one of their best yet: Meet the 2018 Nissan LEAF SV. It comes with an amazing range, quite a bit of power, and the technological wonder you’re hoping for.
Unlike with many prior EVs, when you take the road in this machine, you won’t have to be constantly stopping to juice back up. That’s because this latest LEAF comes packed with a new 40-kWh lithium-ion battery that provides a 151-mile range on a single charge. And when you do have to juice up, it only takes about a half hour to go from zero all the way to 80% full. Plus, the 110-kW motor works on your behalf to create 147 HP and 236 lb.-ft. of torque.
This 2018 Nissan LEAF SV also comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which enable you to access and enjoy the apps you have on your phone while driving via the LEAF’s built-in display. Also, Bluetooth connectivity offers hands-free voice commands while the navigation system will ensure you make it safely and securely to your destination.
Sometimes, you gotta “go big or go home.” And the 2019 Nissan Armada Platinum certainly allows you to do the former. It is a machine that not only boasts incredible passenger seating but, perhaps just as importantly, it comes through in a huge way when it comes to performance and comfort/convenience.
The 2019 Nissan Armada Platinum “brings it” when we’re talking about power. The 5.6L V8 engine is more than enough to move this motoring mass in a hurry, producing 390 HP and 394 pound-feet of torque. This near-400-HP production results in a towing capacity that maxes out at 8,500 pounds. Also, all-wheel-drive boosts traction and the seven-speed automatic transmission keeps everything easy to operate.
This SUV packs in both heated and cooled seats to keep passengers pleased in all conditions. A rear DVD entertainment system makes longer trips far more palatable, while lane-keeping assist and blind-spot intervention combine to enhance safety for all. All told, it’s a heck of a package.
Not all pickups are created equal. The 2019 Nissan Titan is a different breed, and the upper-trim SL model is really one that we believe you’ll find irresistible thanks to its menagerie of safety features, welcomed comfort inclusions, and awesome powertrain.
When you drive this truck, you’ll be heading down the roads of Renton and Seattle with quite a bit of peace of mind. There’s a full suite of airbags (front, rear, side-curtain) as well as brake assist and four-wheel independent suspension. Notably, the speed-sensitive windshield wipers are both a passenger security and a convenience feature—they automatically adjust their operating speed to match the intensity of falling rain. And those who test this pickup also dig its MP3 and SiriusXM support, touchscreen inclusion, and heated front seats.
The 2019 Nissan Titan SL is also packed with a 5.6L eight-cylinder engine that creates a total of 390 horses at 5,800 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 394 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 RPM. This is matched to a seven-speed automatic transmission for smooth sailing at all times.
Why settle for less than supercar technology? Really—we’re serious! Nissan understands that just because the Altima is a four-door sedan doesn’t mean it has to be ordinary, which is why the 2019 version comes with an engine that benefits from a special manufacturing process.
The 2019 Altima’s 2.5L motor is made using a high-tech mirror bore process that reduces friction while simultaneously enhancing efficiency. This is achieved by removing the bulky cylinder liners and, as a result, the whole unit runs more smoothly.
The treatment used on the Altima’s engine was first incorporated when manufacturing the GT-R. Now, the parts are made on the Decherd assembly line, and it’s now the highest volume use of the tech at the company. In fact, a 2019 Nissan Altima engine can be produced as quickly as every 19 seconds!
"Advanced technology like the mirror bore process only makes sense for Nissan if we can offer it to as many customers as possible," said Jay Boyte, director of engineering at Decherd Powertrain Plant, Nissan North America. "The end result is an innovative and efficient engine made with manufacturing technology usually not available at this volume or price point.”
Here’s the scoop: Back in 1914, Kwaishinsha Co.’s Kenjiro Den, Rokuro Aoyama and Meitaro Takeuchi endeavored to build an automobile. They used the first letter of each of their last names to christen the 10-HP machine they produced the “DAT,” which means “lively” or “agile” in Japanese.
In the same year, Lila Company and Kwaishinsha Co. merged; five years later in 1919, the aforementioned merged with Jitsuyo Jidosha Co., a three-wheel-car producer. The result was Dat Jidosha Seizo Co. Then, in 1931, that entity teamed up with Tobata Casting Company to make “Datson” cars (literally “son of DAT”). Later, that name would be tweaked to “Datsun” to reflect the national symbol of Japan, the sun. If you’ve been around a while, you may even remember Datsun machines, even if you’re American!
Finally, on June 1, 1934, Nihon Sanyo and Tobata Casting paired up, eventually leading to the creation of “Nissan Motors.”
That’s quite the storied—and complex—history, isn’t it? If you have any questions or wish to learn more, don’t hesitate to give us a call at Kirkland Nissan today!
If you’re looking for a very gently used machine that’s a ton of fun to drive and oozing with style, the 2018 Nissan Kicks S may be right up your alley. This is a car that we feel is primed to dazzle you!
This vehicle is athletic and capable on the roads of Renton, Bellevue, and Seattle thanks to its nimble size. Between that and its peppy engine—a naturally aspirated,1.6L four-cylinder that produces 125 HP—it offers spirited performance and is a joy to drive. And because of its high roof, it has enhanced visibility.
The 2018 Nissan Kicks S doesn’t rely solely on its engine and compact size in order to make an impression. It has other things going for it, too. High-tech software such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility enhance the driver/passenger experience by interfacing perfectly with your smartphone, allowing access to supported apps in addition to voice commands and the like. Plus, the option of a two-tone exterior is fantastically striking!
Ah, the LEAF. It’s one of Nissan’s truest victories in the automotive sector—an all-electric machine that’s affordable and fun to drive for the masses. After all, it arrives with an MSRP of just $32,000—and once you realize what’s inside, that will be seen as an even greater deal.
This EV is all about smart efficiency. It is packed with a motor that produces 147 horsepower. Driving range has been improved—you can go a whopping 151 miles on a single charge before having to juice up. Once you do need to charge the battery, it’s relatively quick—eight hours at 220 volts. And of course, there’s that efficiency we spoke of. This machine has an MPGe of 124 city / 99 highway!
The 2019 Nissan LEAF SV is well-rounded, too. It comes with many other swell features, including a premium six-speaker audio system that boasts the entertainment advantages provided by SiriusXM compatibility. Also, the navigation system will help ensure you never make a wrong turn.
The ever-popular Maxima is one of Nissan’s best sellers—and it isn’t difficult to understand why. Sedans never go out of style; they offer both single individuals and families a combination of style and practicality. The 2018 model, for instance, is wonderfully sleek and curvaceous yet still has those four doors for easy access. Even better, though, is the fact you can make your Maxima your own by selecting from an excellent range of metallic exterior paint colors.
There are six high-gloss colors to choose from on this vehicle. Those that enjoy a neutral tone that’s a bit more reserved yet still dazzling can go for Super Black or Gun Metallic (great names, right?). Similarly, Pearl White or Brilliant Silver are very popular choices—that white really is as pure as snow. And for those that want to stand out from the crowd a bit, there’s Deep Blue and Carnelian Red.
The 2018 Maxima has power to back up all that style, too. It comes with a 3.5L six-cylinder that kicks out 300 horses and 261-lb.-ft. of torque. And because of its continuously variable transmission (CVT), it easily manages an average MPG of 21 city/30 highway.
