Tony, Jag, Wes, Michelle and the gentleman helping with insurance were fantastic to us. We were looking for a Smart Car and found a posting on Craigslist for their dealership. We were greeted, offered a test drive and two days later signed on for our newest purchase. Everyone was kind and patient with us. Jag even took our photo for Instagram. We look forward to buying our next Ford (Bronco) family vehicle with you all. Thank you!

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.

Keep calling this dealership for one month to get a buyout price for my leasing truck. Everytime transfered to this lady, always no one answers. Left tones of voice message, never get replied.

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.
