ROB & CAROL
We purchased a 2019 Ford Truck from Key West, the sales rep Erick Menon was a great help, he was keen to ensure we got exactly what we were looking for, he was not pushy or aggressive, felt more like dealing with a friend than a car salesman!
Michael Nokes assisted with the purchase and was able to help cut through all the differences in offers that we were seeing on the internet and compare apples to apples. I truly appreciated the effort to explain the technical differences and the pros and cons of the options, this helped us pin point exactly what we wanted.
Key West has a huge selection of vehicles, so once we identified the options and price range, they were able to select one from the lot that matched our needs and gave us a choice of colours.
We would definitely go back to Key West Ford and recommend them to our friends and family!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year in the automotive industry – the North American Car and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) Awards are gearing up! And this year, we couldn't be more excited as three Nissan models were named as semi-finalists.
The NACTOY Awards are an annual honor that are chosen by the organization’s jury, which is made up of North American automotive journalists. Winners are selected for three main categories, including cars, trucks and SUVs. Semi-finalists were announced earlier in September and the big winners will be revealed next January in Detroit, Michigan.
But, first, the jury has an important job to do – they have to take to the streets of Ypsilanti, Michigan, to put the semi-finalists to the test. Of those vehicles are three Nissan models, including the Altima, Leaf and the all-new Kicks. From these series of road tests, the jury will select the finalists, which will be announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show at the end of November.
It’s a great honor for Nissan to have three vehicles recognized as semi-finalists in the NACTOY Awards. With the Leaf’s and Altima’s full redesigns, as well as the launch of the Kicks crossover earlier this year, there is so much more to love about these models, especially their styling, feature sets and performance.
Our team at Kirkland Nissan will be following the awards closely. Be sure to check back on our blog in November as the finalists will be announced or call our team to learn more about the Nissan Leaf, Altima and Kicks.

For the second year in a row, Nissan has driven off with more best-in-category wins than any other brand in the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA). Held annually, these honors are based on nation-wide survey results from over 58,000 owners of new 2017 and 2018 cars and light trucks. This year, the Murano, Maxima and Titan were all repeat winners, with the Leaf and 370Z joining them on the podium for the first time.
According to AutoPacific president George Peterson, “the VSAs provide consumers with insight into which vehicles are giving owners a satisfying ownership experience.” The awards objectively measure owner satisfaction with 40 separate attributes ranging from seating comfort and interior quality to driving performance.
The Murano, which has earned category awards four years in a row, was recognized for its unique styling cues, including a floating roof design, large windows, Zero Gravity front and outboard rear seating, as well as an oversized panoramic roof, while the Maxima and Titan were both honored for their on-road prowess – specifically the sedan’s 3.5-liter V6 engine and the pickup’s 5.6-liter Endurance V8 variant.
As for the newcomers, the Leaf was noted for its zero emissions performance and remarkable EPA range of 151 miles, along with its innovative driver assist technologies, including e-Pedal and ProPILOT Assist. The VSAs also gave top marks to the 370Z for its unforgettable styling and mighty 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with 332 horsepower.

Nissan has added another accolade to its growing list of honors. The automaker recently won an Excellence in Climate Solutions Award for its ground-breaking work to develop electric vehicle technology and energy services systems. The distinction is part of the FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards, which is given by the Financial Times and the International Finance Corporation.
Nissan was specifically recognized for its Vehicle-to-Grid technology, which enables energy from electric cars to be fed back into the electricity grid. This pioneering innovation not only makes the grid more stable, but it also helps consumers better manage their energy supply and costs.
But, that’s not all. Nissan’s second-life energy storage systems were also recognized by the FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards. This cutting-edge invention re-uses batteries from Nissan Leaf and e-NV200 electric vehicles and turns them into energy storage units for homes and other buildings. Most recently, the technology was tested in Namie, Japan, which is a city that was abandoned after the Fukushima nuclear disaster following the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. Old Nissan Leaf batteries were used to power LED streetlights to make roads safer for vehicles and pedestrians.
"This recognition validates Nissan's continuing efforts to integrate EV technology into society," said Nissan Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci in a press release. "From launching the first mass-market electric vehicle, the Nissan Leaf, to developing Vehicle-to-Grid technology, we will continue leading the way toward a zero-emission future through Nissan Intelligent Mobility."

This week has been a big one for Nissan. Hot on the heels of their recognition as an “A list” business for H20 stewardship in the 2017 Global Water Report, the automaker has brought home this year’s Thailand Automotive Quality Award for "Outstanding Brand Image for Environmental Friendly.” The distinction recognizes the company’s pioneering all-electric work with the LEAF and similar vehicles.
The award was presented to Peter Galli, vice president of Communications at Nissan Motor (Thailand) Co., Ltd., by the chair of the Impact Muang Thong Thani event, Dr. Somchai Harnhirun. The distinction comes as a result of the company’s dedication to electric technology and reduced emissions, as seen in the Note, Almera, March, and LEAF cars.
In his speech, vice president Galli noted the automaker’s longstanding dedication to the environment through 70 years of electric vehicle research, beginning with the Tama line in 1947. Driving pleasure, affordability, and air quality improvement measures are all seen in the latest 2018 LEAF, a zero-emission EV that makes use of ProPILOT Assist Technology. This enables braking, steering, acceleration, and more autonomous assistance in stop-and-go situations on single-lane highways. Additionally, e-Pedal functionality and similar Intelligent Mobility features help ensure safety, all while a 150-mile cruising range is achieved.
Consumers that make their purchases and run their lives with the welfare of the environment in mind continue to turn to Nissan. That fact has been underscored this week with the company’s recognition in the CDP’s 2017 Global Water Report as an “A list” business for H20 stewardship. Additionally, the automaker garnered a “Leadership-level” rating in the same body’s climate change assessment for the fourth consecutive year.
Previously known as the Carbon Disclosure Project, the CDP annually ranks global companies for their efforts in reducing CO2 emissions and effectively managing water usage. Out of greater than 2,000 businesses surveyed, Nissan was one of only 74 that made this year’s “A list” for H20 management. The honor comes as the automaker continues to promote usage reductions across all their production facilities via savvy tech and supply-chain optimizations.
Nissan is now working to reduce “well-to-wheel” CO2 emissions in both their conventional gasoline and progressive electric vehicles. The goal is to have the year 2000 levels shrunk by 90% by 2050. Further technology initiatives, such as expanding vehicle charging infrastructure in cities for the LEAF, will help make this possible.
As consumers, whenever any of us purchases consumer goods, we’re looking for the best design and engineering. This desire is exponentially heightened whenever we make a large, life-altering buy, such as a car. That’s why Seattleites and those the world over looking for a new ride should take great heart in the results of this year’s 2017 Ipsos Product Quality Awards. The event bestowed a number of commendations on Nissan across six categories.
The 2017 Ipsos Product Quality Awards compiled results based on customer interviews (9,000 total in South Africa) and research. The latter was amassed through Vehicle Quality Surveys (VQS) with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). These polls offer insight into automobile benchmarks at the three-month-service interval. And boy, did Nissan come out looking great.
The Japanese automaker took the honors of “Top Box” position in all eight Ipsos Product Quality Awards segments. Nissan also “medaled” in six other categories—three of which were gold. Here is the full breakdown:
