A surprisingly easy buying experience. Our knowledgeable salesman Allen was very patient with my wife and I. The nice young lady in finance was engaging but not pushy. Insurance was pleasant and a breeze. Yes, I recommend Key West Ford.

Very bad service! Liars!. Took it for service on Thursday at 10 am (1hr-2hr) they said they couldn’t have it ready that day, so I had to leave it overnight and it was ready to be picked up at 11am. I had to reschedule many appointments I had already made.! Very rude and unprofessional. Then I had to pay $234 for just inspecting my 2013 Ford Fiesta that has a problem with the transmission and always has had since the first day of purchase, and there even an ongoing lawsuit against Ford for defective transmission in these models. They said it’s not the transmission and it’s they have to undergo more inspections that require more time and it’s gonna cost me more! They ended up making excuses about this problem and I ended up having the same problematic defective and dangerous vehicle. Then they said they have washed it and ready for me to pick up. They didn’t wash it! It was al dirty upon picking up! I have pics to prove. Ford is a horrible company and have many problems with their vehicles. It has caused me great financial loses as well as wage from my employment due to this vehicle, I use my car for work ( I work in it, from it ) it’s my work tool and equipment.

For the first time in 5,(count them), 5 decades it was a pleasure, as a single senior woman to buy a car. It was a fun, happy experience working with Jake and then Nikki. I felt listened to and cared about. Too bad Covid prevented hugs but hugs to both of them. Even the reception lady and gentleman who transferred my insurance made it an all-round positive experience. Thank you all.

nissan hybrid vehicles seattle washingtonAccording to a recent Automotive News Europe article, Nissan Motor Corporation is considering an expansion of its ePower hybrid drivetrain to additional global markets within the next few years. The technology is currently available on the Nissan Note and Serena in Japan with the Juke soon to follow.
 
The extension of ePower to European markets is in response to more stringent CO2 targets and a reduced dependency on diesel fuels, which are set for 2020-2021. There is also talks of rolling out a range of fully-electric vehicles similar to the Leaf EV, but Nissan is studying other methods that would allow for partial electrification.
 
“We can do a 48-volt mild hybrid, or we can do a plug-in hybrid, but what is most interesting right now is the success we have had with ePower technology,” says Ponz Pandikuthira, Vice President of Product Planning in the interview.
 
ePower uses a small gasoline engine to act as a range extender to charge a battery, which is especially useful in markets where charging infrastructure is weak or not widely available. It is also cheaper to produce when compared to plug-in hybrid technologies, partly because the engine is not connected to the driveline and the vehicle doesn’t require 400 kg of additional battery weight. It’s a great solution for the automaker, bridging the gap between traditional diesel fuels and complex plug-in powertrains.
 
In the article, it was stated that Nissan plans to bring ePower to the U.S., but more likely as an option on higher-end vehicles. The technology will play a larger roll in the Infiniti lineup, come 2021.
