I found Peter to be utterly professional, knowledgeable about the vehicle I was interested(not necessarily what was on the lot),friendly and not pushy. The dealership has a great team from salesman to parts department and finally to insurance people. Every person was super friendly, kind and professional. I will return when I need to buy another car.

Purchased a Ford Transit 15 passenger

Bought this 15 passenger van from this dealership. Usually I get ticked off with car sales people, but these guys were awesome right from Johny Decosta (sales guy) to Mike (manager). They were genuinely interested in finding the solution for me. They came across fully committed to help. I would certainly recommend Johny Decosta for buying Ford. I am coming to dealership for my next purchase 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!
