Peter, Ben and Nick Helped me to Get My Dream Car!
Mustang has been my dream car since high school, finally got it owing to the help from Peter, Ben, and Nicholas.
I contacted several Ford dealers at the same time and Ben was the first one who replied to me. I was very surprised because it was 11 pm. At least I knew he cared about his business and wanted to get the sale. So I visited them first. Peter was really patient and knowledgable. He showed me all my options both new & used. I immediately knew what I exactly wanted after the first visit.
One thing I really appreciate is he was not pushy at all. I got to visit different dealers to see more options but eventually, I chose Key West because, of course, I love the car he recommended, also, Ben and Peter made me feel they will still be happy to help after selling the car to me, will not just simply ignore the aftersale service. Nick helped me to make the financing easy.
They care and they help. No more words, highly recommended!
We had the unfortunate need to have our van replaced due to an accident. Flynn had a replacement van in stock and we were back on the road very quickly. The van was ready on time as promised.
Buying used Ford F-150
We received great service from Peter and he gave us lots of time to make our decision on buying the right truck. He even got the price down a little for us.
Appreciate the value add
We appreciated the telephone information provided by Jeff Upton when we were inquiring about a used truck. We needed to determine whether it had the heavy duty towing capabilities that we needed. Jeff went out of his way to do some digging to determine the vehicle's tow capacity and he provided helpful information that we could use to assess other vehicles as we continued our search. That vehicle didn't work out but we subsequently came in to look at another and was served by Peter Olson. He did a great job on intro and test drive, and again, did some backchecking with Nissan to determine if this vehicle had a factory installed tow package. We felt that the negotiation and pricing was fair and we didn't get the high pressure sales tactics that I hate so much. When we came back to pick up the vehicle the next day, Peter had gone out of his way to have the tow hitch, which was really rusty, painted! A real value-add and a pleasant surprise. Nick was great to deal with for the contract signing, very pleasant.
Promised great service and delivered.
Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
My experience at Key West Ford
I will share here my experience with Key West Ford. I have spent more than 7 hours with Mr. Peter olson (salesman), he was incredibly patient with me, showed me more than 12 possibilities of vehicles (in my budget). After we pick some cars he took me to do 5 test drives with the vehicles what really helped me so much on my choice.
Today I just pick up my car at Key West Ford just all clean (little issues on the vehicle were fixed just as promissed to me) and with fuel only for me to drive. I would like to thank Mr Peter Olsen and Key West Ford Team.
Thank you so much.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
INFINITI Features Glossary For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
Here’s something surely almost all of you will be able to make much use of—the 2018 INFINITI QX30’s Intelligent Park Assist. How does it work and what does it do? Read on for the fun facts!
Intelligent Park Assist will change the way you arrive at your destination. Instead of worrying about squeezing into tight spaces or dealing with pesky parallel maneuvers, you can let the machine take over entirely on your behalf. It works via an arrangement of a dozen sensors on the exterior of the QX30. These work to send information to the crossover’s computer, which then determines if a space is eligible for parking. If it is, you’ll be presented with the option on the center console screen. Once you touch to confirm, the system will then autonomously take over, operating the steering, accelerator, brake pedal, and shifting functions to automatically and safely put you into the open space. It’s that simple!
Do note that Intelligent Park Assist now works in both parallel and reverse-in situations. It is delivered as standard on the QX30 Sport and is available on other trims as part of the add-on Tech Package.
Traversing the Seattle area’s highways and byways in a premium, luxury vehicle is great, but sometimes you want to have the latitude to hit the trails. Further, it’s wonderful to have peace of mind when driving, knowing that you don’t have to hold back even if there are inclement conditions in place. For these reasons, INFINITI has gifted its 2018 QX60 with Intelligent All-wheel Drive (AWD).
Intelligent AWD is a modern take on the system. It smartly alters its behavior based upon the road situation. Take, for instance, a dry and consistent surface. In that case, this technology will autonomously send all energy to the rear wheels to promote maximum performance, taking under consideration aspects such as throttle position, traveling speed, and wheel spin.
The 2018 QX60’s Intelligent AWD acts much differently when skidding/slipping is a threat. If the surface you’re traveling over is wet or otherwise unstable, the system automatically improves grip by sending half of the available torque to the front wheels. This boosts friction and makes traveling across mud, snow, and ice much safer and easier.
INFINITI loves incorporating high technology into their luxury vehicles. Take the 2019 QX50, for instance. It benefits greatly thanks to a head-up display (HUD), as provided as part of the ProPilot Assist Package.
Here’s how it works: The HUD projects information onto the bottom area of your windshield; it takes up approximately a nine-inch area when activated. This keeps you focused on what’s in front of you as opposed to having to pull your attention away to the center console’s screen. The details offered are robust, too. The HUD can show off your current traveling speed, the distance to the car moving ahead of you, engine condition and vehicle warnings, and navigation elements to ensure you don’t lose your way. Neat!
Keep in mind that it’s super simple to toggle the 2019 QX50’s HUD on and off. All you must do is push a dedicated button on the dashboard. Also, what the HUD displays can be customized by tweaking settings on the screen—instructions are, of course, included.
A fast car is a ton of fun; likewise, a truck or SUV that is brawny and can tow and haul a bunch of gear can be immensely useful. But in the end, the safety and security features of any machine are the most valuable inclusions. INFINITI recognizes this, which is why they include speed-sensitive windshield wipers on the 2018 QX60.
This crossover’s wipers are different than traditional ones that require manual input. Instead, you can choose to set them to autonomous operation, taking speed-related tweaks and such out of your hands and enabling you to concentrate on the roads of Tacoma, Seattle, and Bellevue. When used in this capacity, these wipers will actually turn themselves on when rain hits and then will adjust their rate of operation to keep pace with the amount of falling precipitation.
Here’s how these wipers work: An infrared beam on the outside of the windshield is reflected to a sensor. When rain drops, this stream of light is interrupted and the system knows that it is raining. Analog and digital signals convey to the motors inside the wipers just how much precipitation is falling; based upon this and the velocity of the QX60, the operation speed is modified to match.
After a brief hiatus, we’re back with more INFINITI features to share with you, Tacoma! These cars are jam-packed with next-level, premium inclusions, and that’s certainly the case with the 2019 QX50. The crossover is an inviting place for all passengers—no matter where they’re situated—thanks to tri-zone climate control.
Tri-zone climate control is like dual-zone but it takes things one step further. While the latter is available in most modern automobiles, the former is something that you only see in larger, more luxurious machines such as the 2019 INFINITI QX50. While the passengers seated on either side of the front of the cabin have their own separate climate controls, this crossover offers those situated in the rear the ability to set their own separate temperature, too. You no longer have to rely on those in the fore of the cabin to make this decision for you! It’s all made possible by separately detached vents on the rear of the center console, enabling the third zone of distinct airflow.
Ready to learn more about the amazing 2019 QX50? Call us at INFINITI of Tacoma now!
While all of us ultimately try to remain aware of our surroundings as we drive, with each passing year there are increasingly more and more potential distractions. Even those among us with superb defensive driving skills are at risk of a collision and potential catastrophe. While this is certainly a sobering line of thought, fortunately, carmakers like INFINITI are instituting new features to help keep us all safe. One of the preeminent ones is the emergency communication system as seen in the 2019 QX50 and similar models.
Here’s how it works: If you get stranded on the side of the road with a flat or are involved in a serious wreck, the QX50’s emergency communication system has your back. It’s accessed via a button on the driver’s dash and functions effectively as an “SOS.” Pressing it once will connect you with a real, live INFINITI representative (no computers!) who will work with you to get you whatever you require, whether that’s simple roadside assistance, emergency services, and/or the authorities.
Want a responsive and refined performance automobile? Well, to be frank, you better be investing in something with an excellent steering system. And you know the amazing thing (well, one of ‘em) about the 2017 INFINITI Q60? It doesn’t just have one—it has three!
That’s right… with this coupe, you get to choose. The first steering option is a traditional hydraulic rack and pinion system that will be the choice of many drivers. However, if you want to head down the road with a bit more aggression, the electronic rack and pinion system with sport mode may be the flavor you prefer. It’s a bit more nuanced and offers quicker responses for an extra dose of fun.
Of course, we mentioned three total steering modes, didn’t we? Well, the final one—Direct Adaptive Steering—is the most interesting of all. It’s the planet’s first digital steering system, leveraging the car’s onboard computer to interpret driver inputs in milliseconds and offer feedback in a quicker manner than any other system. You can even customize it to your liking in seven different ways!
Welcome back to our Features Glossary section, INFINITI fans! You hear talk of automatic and manual transmissions all the time but, digging a bit deeper, what does someone mean when they utter the phrase “dual-clutch transmission?”
Cars including INFINITI’s 2018 QX30 come with a dual-clutch transmission that’s mated to its motor. With more standard manual setups that include a single-clutch arrangement, the driver depresses the pedal and there is a momentary disconnect with the transmission (and a corresponding jerkiness the can be jarring). Fortunately, dual-clutch transmissions feature two couplings not directly influenced by pedals. It’s a completely electronic system!
So, what are the benefits of such a dual-clutch system? Well, as you can guess, it’s way smoother in operation than a single-clutch manual transmission. However, the separate gear sets also offer greater fuel efficiency. For example, the 2018 INFINITI QX30 receives an average highway MPG of 33.

Are you considering the 2018 INFINITI QX30? It’s an amazing and luxurious automobile that contains a number of high-end amenities that are sure to impress you. Take, for instance, its electronic stability control. It’s an amazing feature that will keep you safe, and it’s definitely worth having.
Electronic stability control is a computerized technology that improves a vehicle's stability by detecting and reducing the loss of traction. This means you will be less likely to skid or slide if you drive over ice, rocks, or debris on the road.
This is different from ABS technology, likely familiar to drivers of older vehicles. Instead, electronic stability adds to its predecessor, using more sensors and enhanced algorithms to provide a smoother, safer experience. Traction control only limits wheel spin, whereas this program can actually maneuver your car.
The 2018 QX30 also includes several other awesome amenities, like Bose 10-speaker premium audio and dual-zone air conditioning. It even has mirror memory, in case you’re planning to share the crossover with someone else in your household.
Is this vehicle something that you feel you’d like to consider? Stop by our Tacoma dealership near Bothell, Washington, today to take a test drive and learn about more of its standout features!

Have you been considering a new INFINITI vehicle? If so, you’re likely looking for a powerful, luxurious, and high-end option that includes all of the comfort and safety amenities you’ve dreamed of. The 2019 INFINITI QX50 might be a wonderful choice for you. These automobiles include multi-zone air conditioning, which is ideal for staying at a prime temperature at all times.
Have you ever wondered how this technology works? Here’s how. In older models that have just one temperature for the whole vehicle, the driver has controls for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Ducts and vents throughout the car would transport the air, cooled or warmed to the chosen temperature, throughout the car. Today, though, the operator and passengers all have a say in how warm or cold they are.
Multiple control units, individual temperature sensors for each area, more ductwork to carry the air throughout the car, and extra vents all work together to make multi-zone air conditioning possible.
This crossover is filled with other amazing features, too. Delay off headlights light your path when you’re coming home late at night. An emergency communication system protects you in case you ever are stranded without a phone during a scary situation. Hurry in to INFINITI of Tacoma in Renton, Washington, today and take a test drive!
