Peter Olson was an amazing sales agent. From day one on email to in person. He made the car buying process easy. Highly recommend him and his team.
EXCELLENT SERVICE AT KEY WEST FORD.
PETER WAS A VERY HELPFUL SALESMAN AND WE GOT THE DEAL WE WANTED AND A GOOD TRADE-IN PRICE.
WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH OUR NEW FORD ESCAPE.
authentic, honest, enjoyable
Everyone from sales (Jack Campbell) to the financing (michelle) process was extremely pleasurable. They helped me a first time truck buyer through a complicated process and made it easy. I felt appreciated and that it was an honest and trustworthy environment. I will be using them for all my vehicle purchases and trade ins moving forward.
Pete Olson was the best
Pete made buying a vehicle so pleasant and easy. I haven’t bought many vehicles in my life but I’ve heard car salesmen can sometimes be bad to deal with. Not in this case. Pete was one of the nicest guys I’ve met, and really knew his stuff about vehicles. He even came in on his day off to make sure I got what I needed and make sure he was there when I was able to drive off the lot. I highly recommend Key West Ford, and especially Pete Olson.
Quick, easy, and personable!
Erick was a pleasure to deal with, this was my first time purchasing a vehicle, and Erick made it very easy! I was worried going into the dealership as I was unsure of what to expect; however Erick had my best interest and was very attentive to what I was looking for. If you ever drop by this dealership I would highly recommend dealing with Erick!! He will make it his mission to get you exactly what you are searching for, at the best prices!

Nissan Features Glossary For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
Welcome back to our Features Glossary section, Tacoma and Kirkland residents! If you’re interested in the passenger-carrying premium automobile that is the 2019 Nissan Armada, we think you’ll be properly enamored. It’s full of a wealth of safety features and we’re excited to detail a number of those for you today.
There’s more than just standard forward collision warning on this machine. It also comes with intelligent cruise control, which likewise uses forward-facing sensors to take regular cruise control to a more evolved level. If an automobile in front of you hits their brakes, the system uses “gap management” to keep a set distance between your Armada and that vehicle. And regardless of whether you have this technology activated or not, there’s emergency braking on hand that will automatically kick in to help you avoid a crash if you don’t respond quickly enough.
The 2019 Nissan Armada is packed with rear door alert, as well. We’re sure you’ve done it before—you access the back of the machine to load something, close the hatch, start your drive, and then forget to retrieve your goods from the rear once you arrive at your destination. This feature uses sequence logic and multiple horn honks to remind you.
Nissan makes some impressive trucks and the 2018 Frontier is no different. In fact, it’s a machine that received a number of upgrades versus the previous model year. As such, we’re going to take the time today to highlight this group of features as opposed to simply focusing on a singular item as we often do.
The 2018 Nissan Frontier represents a significant upgrade in technology over what was seen before in its line. New safety options for the model year include parking sensors, a rearview camera, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror, the latter of which automatically dims itself to reduce glare from the headlights of motorists following you at night.
Outside of safety, there have been other upgrades. Your tunes will now play through a six-speaker stereo system that sounds fantastic. Also, infotainment can be controlled via a five-inch touchscreen on the center console. And for your comfort, both dual-zone climate control and heated front seats have been added to the equation.
Who says you need two pedals to drive? Nissan certainly doesn’t believe so, as they’ve pioneered “e-Pedal” technology on the 2019 LEAF—a system that enables the all-electric vehicle to be fully operated with only one pedal.
So, here’s the scoop, Seattle: the e-Pedal lets you both accelerate and brake the LEAF with only one pedal, eschewing the conventional setup. While fully optional in this year’s Nissan EV, it lets the driver press down on the e-Pedal to gradually accelerate; conversely, easing up on the pedal enables you to slow the car down. When you remove your foot altogether, the car’s regenerative brakes kick in and a full stop is completed.
With the 2019 LEAF’s e-Pedal, the brake lamps turn on whenever pressure on the pedal is released. The e-Pedal can also stop a car while on an incline and is compatible with parallel parking situations. As a result of its design, it promotes enhanced driving range and longer-lasting brake pads.
Call us now to learn more! We’re eager to set you up with a LEAF test drive today.
Sure, we may be in the dead of summer right now, but it’s never too early to begin to prepare for the winter. Therefore, if you have a 2018 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X, you may be interested in its snow plow package. It makes the pickup even handier, enabling you to handle wintry conditions and go about your work as usual.
The 2018 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X’s snow plow package combats blizzard situations by supplying a kit that includes heavy-duty front springs. These springs are compatible with attachable plows from major brands, including Fisher, Boss, Meyer, and Western. Add-ons of up to 786 pounds are supported.
Of course, there’s more to the 2018 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X than its available snow plow package. It comes standard with a 6.5-foot bed with a spray-in liner. Also, rain-sensing wipers automatically adjust to handle precipitation, while skid plates protect the truck and Bilstein shocks supply a smooth ride.
Welcome back to our features glossary section, Tacoma and Kirkland residents! We often focus on one specific feature of a car or truck but today we’re going to zero in on two: the hitch mount and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto as seen in the magnificent 2019 Nissan Titan.
This pickup helps you get stuff done. Case in point: It comes with a hitch mount that will make life easier for anyone who’s active and looking to tow, say, a trailer or a recreational vehicle from time to time. The full-length, fully boxed ladder frame of this mighty truck is augmented by the aforementioned hitch, which in turn leads to the ability to tow as much as 12,710 pounds.
The 2019 Nissan Titan stands out when it comes to technology, too. This is no longer just a utilitarian machine—it has fancy doo-dads and electronic bells and whistles that make modern life on the road more convenient. This includes the option of either Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, resulting in the ability to access phone-stored apps, maps, contacts, and more.
Safety first! That’s a mantra we can all get behind when it comes to our automobiles, and Nissan certainly takes it to heart in the construction of their 2018 Altima. This car has two amazing technologies we wish to cover today: Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Predictive Forward Collision Warning.
Ever been worried about visibility as you reverse out of your driveway or parking space? (We’re going to take a wild guess and assume the answer to that question is “yes.”) Well, Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you detect if an automobile is approaching from behind or even to either side of your vehicle. Nifty, right?
The 2018 Nissan Altima also comes with Predictive Forward Collision Warning. This is a very advanced rare sensor that can help save your life. When you’re going own the highway, the sensor automatically judges the speed and distance of the car in front of you as well as the car in front of that one. If deceleration on their part occurs, your instrument panel will light up and you’ll be given an audible warning.
We hope you’re enjoying the weekend, Seattle and Kirkland residents! If you’ve been a bit restless and find yourself browsing car listings online these days, we think you may want to turn your attention to the 2018 Nissan Armada if you’re intrigued by the prospect of a big, powerful and intelligently decked-out SUV. It comes with a nifty feature for occupant safety—the Intelligent Rearview Mirror.
This Armada’s Intelligent Rearview Mirror has two modes: It can exist as a normal, glass rearview mirror but it can also toggle into the “intelligent” mode, wherein a LCD screen is activated. This display shows images fed in from a high-resolution video on the back of the SUV. In so doing, it enables you to see what’s going on behind you and to avoid collisions—it even comes with moving-object detection for pedestrians and animals!
The 2018 Nissan Armada can’t be summed up with an examination of just one safety feature, however. It is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine that generates a whopping 390 horses and 394 pound-feet of torque. This machine also offers smooth operation via a seven-speed automatic transmission. Further, NissanConnect’s inclusion enables hands-free operation via voice controls for its infotainment system.
Few of us really recall it, but there was a time when cruise control was seen as one of the pinnacles of technological prowess in an automobile. Fixing a set speed for highway travel was a big deal then—not so much now. So how does Nissan keep pace with their new machines like the 2018 Armada SL? Simple: with features like Intelligent Backup Intervention.
Intelligent Backup Intervention works in concert with the rearview camera to keep you safe. It kicks in whenever you put the car in reverse, using a variety of sensors to detect stationary objects behind your ride as well as crossing vehicles. A video feed is shown on the center console touchscreen so you can keep track of everything going on outside; further, if you do start to pull out into traffic, the technology can actually autonomously engage the brakes to help you avoid a collision.
Notably, Intelligent Backup Intervention isn’t the only thing the 2018 Armada SL has going for it. It’s wickedly powerful and comes packed with a 5.6L V8 that produces 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. of torque.

At CES 2019 this January, Ivan Espinoza, Corporate VP for Product Planning and Strategy at Nissan, described the three pillars of its Intelligent Mobility features: Intelligent Driving, Intelligent Power, and Intelligent Integration. Let’s take a look at the first of these.
Focusing on safety, control, and comfort, Intelligent Driving is designed to increase drivers’ confidence.
ProPILOT Assist, the hands-on system that alerts drivers to obstacles in front of their vehicles, will also keep you safely in your own lane and ensure you’re not tailgating on the highway. The obstacle features will automatically sound an alert, brake, and stop the vehicle if the driver doesn’t intervene.
Finding and paying for parking in crowded urban areas adds additional stress to the process itself. Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor gives you a 360-degree view of everything in the vicinity of your vehicle to ensure you don’t miss posts, signs—or other cars.
Nissan’s Blind-Spot Warning feature eliminates the small blind-spot visibility gaps of other systems and alerts you to everything in your blind spot, as well as helping you get back into your own lane to avoid an accident.
As Alex Hernandez says, “The company’s ultimate goal is achieving zero-emissions and zero-fatalities on the road. The[y] strongly believe that Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility is the way to achieve this.”

The Nissan Titan was one of only two full-sized pickup trucks to receive a “good” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when they conducted their latest tests on four-door pickups.
While the safety cages that are standard features on most cars and trucks do a great job in front-end collisions involving at least 40 percent of the front of the vehicle, when a smaller percentage of the front end is involved (25 percent), there have been issues, particularly with passenger-side collisions. The IIHS testing focused on passenger-side stats. These small overlap crashes involve just the front corner of the vehicle. IIHS has been rating driver-side front overlap collisions since 2012, but only began testing similar passenger-side fender-benders in 2017 to ensure equal protection for both sides.
There are four IIHS ratings: good, acceptable, marginal and poor.
"We commend Ford, Nissan and Ram for providing state-of-the-art crash protection for both drivers and front passengers of their large pickup models," says David Zuby, IIHS chief research officer.
Front-end collisions, especially if they involve fixed barriers like trees or hydro poles, tend to be more serious in pickups because of the weight of the vehicles.
