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.

Jag was very patient and accommodating during our smooth transaction. Will definitely recommend him with friends looking for a new ride. Did not expect to bring home a new toy today.

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

While the allure of electric vehicles exists, many still find one aspect off-putting: the sound... or lack thereof. Aside from the familiarity of conventional motor grunts and growls, there’s also a safety function—a roaring engine alerts pedestrians to an oncoming automobile. Fortunately, Nissan’s forward-thinking brain trust is developing “Canto,” a concept buzz of sorts for future EVs.

Canto is an audible sound that has nuance. While not the typical growl many are accustomed to, it’s nonetheless a more musical, higher-pitched buzz that warns those on-foot and also eliminates the arguably uncanny silence of EVs. You can experience the concept phenomenon via the video below, which was filmed at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.





Pleasing, isn’t it? Moreover, Canto is intelligent. Depending on what a Nissan platform is doing—slowing down, accelerating, or going in reverse—the system will alter its pitch and tone to reflect the vehicle’s state. Further, the sound will only activate at junctures mandated by the local market and its regulations. This will vary, but by default, it snaps into action when the EV reaches between 20 and 30 KPH.

Swing by our Kirkland Nissan dealership today to learn more about the plans for Canto!
