Top notch Professionalism and Courtesy displayed by everyone involved in my deal, would recommend to anyone without hesitation, could not be happier with this Outstanding Dealership and People!!
First Time Purchase
As first time new car purchasers, my fiancé and I were delighted with the experience of purchasing our new 2018 Ford Escape. Peter made us feel at ease, and let us see a variety of vehicles, even going as far as pulling them out of their parking spots to let us see each and every car in a bit more open area.
Peter was kind, light-hearted and didn’t make us feel pressured into making any decisions. He was up front about the previous ownership of the vehicle we decided on, and even printed off the reports for us to keep. When we had further questions, he brought Wes over to meet with us and discuss the vehicle further.
It was so nice, being first time buyers, to have a pressure-free and up front conversation about our new purchase.
We highly recommend Peter, and the entire Key West team, to help you find your new vehicle!
Best Deal Ever
Friendly people,they set me up with a very nice deal! I‘m able to get everything done in one day!I would go to these guys again
Great Experience, Great Deal!
We arrived just before the dealership was to open and Jag came out and welcomed us in and helped us immediately. He quickly located the vehicle we were looking at and brought it to us. Jag was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
We decided on the vehicle and we worked out a great deal.
I also wanted to send a thank-you to Ivan and Gurj!
Overall we are very happy with our vehicle, very happy with our deal and extremely satisfied with our overall experience. I would have no problem recommending Jag and Key West Ford!
Exactly the vehicle we were looking for
Robert was extremely knowledgeable and personable from the first phone call to his most recent follow up call. We had done our research and were looking for a specific Ford F150 that could pull our fifth wheel trailer. Robert listened carefully and suggested that we come in and see the one used vehicle that met our criteria. Never pushy but friendly and excellent at his job. Wanted to make the deal but willing to negotiate and make sure that we satisfied with the process. Highly recommend Robert to any of my friends and thanks for making the buying experience pleasurable.
We recently purchased a new Ford Escape and were impressed with the friendly and courteous service. Lino and Wes were very helpful and knowledgeable. They patiently and confidently answered our many questions and guided us through the process with ease. Thank you also to Jeff who promptly assisted us when we returned the next day with a couple of questions when Lino and Wes were not available. Overall, we appreciated the attentive service from all staff from our initial visit through the financing and insurance.
A Splendid Experience
These guys all really helped me out. Friendly, personable service, fair negotiators, and thorough in the orientation they gave me with my brand new car. They really gave me the attention I needed. Thank you very much fellas. Much appreciated. Keep it up!

Everything about my trip to Key West was great, Erick, Ian, Gurj, and Kal were amazing to deal with. Super patient guys with a knack for customer service, never once did I feel like I was at a normal dealership, these guys made the car buying process super easy and not stressful.
I would definitely refer family and friends to shop here for a vehicle.
Competitive price and great service
We did our online research first before we went into the dealer. The sales were very attentive and friendly. We made the purchase on the same day!
Most Common INFINITI Questions For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
The 2019 INFINITI QX80 looks amazing. Can you detail how the different trims of the vehicle vary from one another?
It’ll be my pleasure to explain the differences between the various trims of the 2019 QX80! Let’s begin with the 2019 QX80 Luxe. This car comes with a host of convenience- and safety-related features. Intelligent Key with remote engine start is baked in, allowing you to start up your SUV before ever leaving the front door. Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection is included, too, meaning the machine can stop itself on your behalf, acting autonomously to avoid any potential collisions. This trim also comes standard with a 5.6L eight-cylinder engine with seven-speed automatic transmission that produces 400 HP.
The 2019 QX80’s Luxe 4WD trim is the same as the aforementioned with the exception of added four-wheel-drive capability, as its moniker suggests. And then there’s the Limited Edition, which ups the ante by adding lit-up running boards, 22-inch forged aluminum tire rims, a satin chrome trim, and stainless steel running board caps.
I keep hearing this acronym related to INFINITI cars and I believe the Q70, in particular—“VVEL.” What’s the deal with it and is there something special about this tech?
Fantastic question! VVEL means “Variable Valve Event and Lift” and it certainly brings a lot to the table. Any INFINITI car/SUV that comes with VVEL technology, such as the 2018 Q70, is the beneficiary of electronically managed consumption processes and hydraulic-operated timed functionality. As a result, the Q70’s powertrain can let in more air thanks to the availability of a wider throttle opening. The resulting improved airflow ensures additional oxygen reaches the combustion chamber, as measured by the auto’s intake valves. Accordingly, there’s a reduction in intake resistance.
Overall, the inclusion of VVEL boosts vehicle fuel efficiency and enhances torque, Speaking on that former point, you’ll be delighted to know that the 2018 INFINITI Q70 easily manages an EPA-estimated 25 highway /18 city MPG.
Give us a ring today to discuss the Q70 and VVEL in greater detail! We’d also love to set you up with a test drive.
Can you tell me about the performance of the 2015 INFINITI Q50? I like the looks of the machine but I’m not sure about its various specs.
No problem… I’ve got you! The 2015 INFINITI Q50 is a heck of a car but its performance numbers differ a bit between the trims. There’s a base, Premium, Hybrid, and Sport trim, and we’ll detail each in turn for you. The base, Premium, and Sport 2015 INFINITI Q50 are all very similar. Each comes packed with a 3.7L V6 that produces 328 HP at 7,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 269-lb.-ft. of torque at 5,200 RPM. The difference lies in fuel efficiency—the base gets 20 city / 30 highway MPG on average while the Sport and Premium trims come in at 20 city / 29 highway.
The Hybrid is where things really diverge. It struts its stuff with a 50-kilowatt electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack that together produce 360 HP. That means you’ll be getting an average MPG of 29 city / 36 highway.
So, the 2019 INFINITI QX50 has really caught my eye. However, what’s all the hubbub about in regards to the ProPILOT Assist feature?
Thanks in advance, Stewart
Interesting and appreciated query, Stewart! The thing about ProPILOT Assist is that it’s actually a suite of safety features designed to keep you and your passengers safe. It’s next-level in its approach by offering a collection of semiautonomous and traditional safety features that have catapulted this machine onto the “must-have” lists of so many around Tacoma and, more broadly, around the world.
The 2019 INFINITI QX50 ProPILOT Assist safety suite comes with Forward Emergency Braking, which autonomously stops the vehicle more quickly than a driver could normally react if the system judges that you are not responding to a threat in a timely fashion. Predictive Forward Collision Warning plays a large role, too, as does Lane Departure Warning, Back-up Collision Intervention, and Blind Spot Warning and Intervention. All told, you’re getting plenty for your money here!
I was wondering if you could do me a solid and list out the specs of the 2019 INFINITI QX80’s engine? I want to make sure this beast can really move down the road despite its size! I need a large vehicle but don’t want one that’s sluggish.
Oh, don’t you worry. The 2019 INFINITI QX80 has power to spare—more than enough to move its mighty mass around the streets of Tacoma and Renton. It is packed with a 5.L V8 that pushes out 400 horses and 413 pound-feet of torque. As a result, we can assure you it is highly capable on the road.
Although you didn’t ask about fuel range, Steve, I figured I’d mention it given that it is germane to the overall performance discussion. The 2019 INFINITI QX80 is quite efficient relative to its size—the EPA estimates you’ll average 20 MPG on the highway.
Give us a call today to set up a test drive, Steve! We can’t wait for you to experience this machine.
Just wanted to check in on a singular topic: What’s the best way to handle the leather interior of my 2018 INFINITI QX80? I want it to remain in the best condition possible.
That’s a wonderful question! Fortunately, I have good news for you: The 2018 INFINITI QX80’s leather seats are quite nicely protected as it is because they’ve been treated with a hydrophilic mixture that establishes a barrier between the ingress of spills, dyes, and more. It’s a soil-resistant layer, really, that is in place regardless of whether you possess the standard or semi-aniline leather variant. Further, the center console, instrument panel, armrests, and door trims have all been treated in this fashion.
That hydrophilic layer in your QX80 has an added bonus, Jesse: It enables you to more easily clean the seats and other similarly treated surfaces with only a damp cloth. If, however, a real mess has been made, you can turn to a one-step conditioner or oil to help preserve the material. Also, keep in mind that an unnatural leather shine can occur if you use a product made with petroleum-based solvents.
I love my 2016 INFINITI Q50 but I’ve noticed that gas consumption fluctuates depending on the season. Unless I’m going nuts, it seems to me that I get better average mileage this time of year. Is there a reason for this?
You’re definitely onto something! It isn’t your imagination—it’s quite likely you’re averaging better MPG numbers in the summer vs. in the winter when driving around in your INFINITI Q50.
Mileage numbers are always going to be slightly in flux, regardless of the vehicle you’re driving. That’s because the average numbers listed were arrived at under laboratory settings; i.e., in conditions where the temperature has been stabilized. And in the real world, temperatures are obviously not controlled in such a fashion. So, while the 2016 Q50 is estimated at 31 MPG highway / 23 city, you may see as much as a 20% decrease from that in the dead of winter in the Pacific Northwest.
I have an older car—not an INFINITI, although my family loves the brand. That said, this particular truck has been getting long in the tooth and acting up lately. It “wanders” on the road. Actually, steering is actually becoming more difficult now and it’s definitely not just an alignment issue. What may be up?
Thanks so much for contacting us! Your steering rack can certainly get beat up over time. Here are some potential issues to look out for:
A leak under the car. Check under your truck! If there is red or brown fluid to be found, you definitely need to check and potentially correct the amount of power steering solution in your machine. This may require a hose replacement; however, if that doesn’t do the trick, you’ll have to replace the steering rack.
A burning smell. If you pick up on an odor that’s out of place, it may be an indication that your steering rack is overheating. Such a smell may either be an indication of the aforementioned leak or perhaps an illustration of a blockage created by poor-quality fluid. Consider getting your system flushed, if so.
Strange noises. If you hear some “weird” stuff going on—“grinding” at low speeds when cornering, in particular—it demonstrates a lack of steering pump fluid. If left unattended, this can damage the pinion gear or the steering rack itself.
I’ve heard a lot of buzz concerning ProPILOT Assist and I’ve been told it’s available on the latest INFINITI QX50. What’s the deal with the technology and what does it bring to the table?
Great question! ProPILOT Assist on vehicles such as the 2019 INFINITI QX50 offers an amazing suite of safety features to consumers such as yourself. It’s 21st-century in every respect and represents the cutting-edge of what can be done in automobiles today. It has a semi-autonomous driving ability, meaning that your car’s computer can automatically handle acceleration, braking, and steering in single-lane highway conditions. That includes start-stop traffic, too!
The 2019 INFINITI QX50’s ProPILOT Assist safety suite also comes with Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Back-up Collision Intervention, and Blind Spot Warning and Intervention. Further, Forward Emergency Braking (autonomous braking when you otherwise wouldn’t be quick enough to respond yourself) and Direct Adaptive Steering (user-controlled steering wheel “feel”) are also featured.
I’m a huge fan of the look and passenger-carrying capability of the 2019 INFINITI QX80. I’ve also heard that it can certainly hold its own on the road but I was wondering if you could refresh me as to its performance credentials?
It’ll be my pleasure to do so! As you correctly heard, the 2019 INFINITI QX80 is a beast on the road. It’ll have you flying down the streets of Seattle, Renton, and Bellevue with its 5.6L V8 which creates a total of 400 HP and 413 pound-feet of torque. As a result, you’re going to profoundly enjoy taking this one out of your garage.
Now, as we all know, efficiency is an important part of performance, too. Fortunately, the EPA estimates that the 2019 INFINITI QX80 will average 20 MPG on the highway. That means you won’t be forced to make as many pit stops as you might have guessed considering the brawn of this vehicle.
