A Closer Look at the New 2018 Mazda CX-5 Interior

July 6th, 2018

MazdaCX-5_InteriorFeature_1_800x375
Have you seen the interior of the New 2018 Mazda CX-5? If not, Borgman Mazda in Grand Rapids would be happy to give you the grand tour. There are a number of driver-focused tweaks and changes over the previous generation that allow you to comfortably adjust the stereo or climate settings, charge your devices or reach for a beverage – all while staying focused on the road.

Mazda put a lot of care and attention into the layout and design of the Mazda CX-5’s interior, and the best way to experience it is to visit our showroom and take one out for a spin. If you’re short on time though, we’ve also included some snippets from an article on InsideMazda: check out some of the highlights below!

MazdaCX-5_InteriorFeature_2_800x375

1. The Center Console

As one of the most used storage areas in the vehicle, the center console saw refinements that give you smarter storage options. The charging ports under the armrest were moved in order to place your devices in a more convenient location while charging. It means you won’t be balancing your phone or getting wires twisted every time you adjust the radio volume.

MazdaCX-5_InteriorFeature_3_800x375

2. The Glove Compartment

The glove compartment is often taken for granted and is usually slammed shut to prevent everything from falling out. However, Mazda designers understand that it also provides a useful compartment to keep important documents organized and your valuables out of sight. Designers reshaped its interior to comfortably accommodate a 10-inch tablet. They added premium materials to enhance the appearance and create a soft lining for storing devices. Of course, it’s up to you to figure out how much more can be crammed around the tablet. But rest assured that Mazda has gone the extra mile to help keep your devices pampered and protected.

MazdaCX-5_InteriorFeature_5_800x375

3. The Rear Center Armrest

Previously, the rear center armrest was primarily used as a divider between squabbling siblings. Now, it can focus on a role as a storage and charging station. The rear center armrest in CX-5 Grand Touring models folds down to reveal storage for mobile devices and includes two optional USB charging ports to help keep second-row passengers connected, entertained and fully charged.

There are even more interior features to explore in the 2018 Mazda CX-5. Either check out the full list on InsideMazda.MazdaUSA.com, read a more in-depth feature here, or swing by the Borgman Mazda showroom for the full experience.

Borgman How To: The Tao of Towing

July 3rd, 2018

Tao-of-Towing_4_800x375

Simple Guide to Towing Trailers, Boats, and Campers Across West Michigan

One of the best parts of driving a larger Ford Truck or SUV in West Michigan is being able to tow heavier toys along on your next adventure. Whether you’re towing a boat, a trailer loaded with dirt bikes or ATVs, campers, or even snowmobiles, there’s a rugged Ford vehicle that’s more than up to the task. Although, if you’re new to towing, you might have some questions about all the ins and outs. In this latest Borgman How To, we’ll cover some important mechanical, safety, and operating tips to get you towing like a pro in no time!

Be Kind To Your Powertrain!

This first part is very important: when you’re towing something, your vehicle is heavier and needs to work that much harder to get moving. If you don’t compensate for this, you could easily damage your engine, transmission, or both. Before you do anything, it will be worth reviewing your owner’s manual and double checking your towing and payload weight ratings, as well as any vehicle-specific information not covered here.

To illustrate why this is important, we’ll quickly go over how the engine and transmission work together. When you press the gas pedal, the engine spins and the more you press it down, the faster it goes. Without a transmission, the engine would have to work very hard to get the vehicle moving from a stop and rev much too high around 35mph – resulting in severe damage from both cases. Much like the gears on a bicycle, the transmission has different sets of gears for the different “stages” of acceleration. From a stop, the wheels spin slower but with much more force. The inverse is true in the higher gears.

When you add the extra weight of the trailer into this equation, you have to make sure the transmission doesn’t shift too early -which overworks the engine. There are a few easy rules to follow here:

  • Use Tow/Haul Mode if you have it. Otherwise, use whatever setting you have to turn off overdrive (the highest gear.)
  • If you tow heavier loads, in hot weather, or over long distances, it may be a good idea to have a transmission cooler installed.
  • Keep an eye on how your vehicle is shifting: lower gears are preferred when towing up hills.

Tao-of-Towing_3_800x375

Check All Of Your Connections

Since every vehicle is different, you’ll have to refer to your owner’s manual for the proper procedures when attaching and loading a trailer. There are some important things to check for though in any circumstance. First and foremost, make sure all of your tires are properly inflated – and this includes the ones on the trailer. Second, ensure your trailer’s brake/taillights are properly connected, attached, and working. While you’re back there, it’s worth noting that your trailer’s license plate is attached and visible as well. Third, check your tongue weight. Usually, you want 10% to 12% of the trailer’s weight resting on the tongue but this may differ from case to case. Finally, check your connection to the hitch, as well as the chains. These are your safety net should the hitch fail, so give them as much attention as the hitch itself. After 10 to 15 minutes of driving, safely pull over and check these again – sometimes bumps in the road can wiggle them loose.

Everything looking good? Now it’s time to get comfortable driving with a trailer!

Tao-of-Towing_6_800x375

The Secret To Safely Towing a Trailer: Practice, Practice, Practice.

Even if you feel confident about towing a trailer on public roads, it’s absolutely necessary to get acquainted with it before heading out. Have an experienced friend bring your rig to an empty parking lot so you can practice things like backing up, braking, making lane changes, and adjusting to the change in handling. The key is to do everything slow and steady.

Though some trailers come equipped with brake assistance, you’ll still be able to feel the extra weight when stopping. The heavier the load, the more pronounced this gets. Once you know what to expect, plan ahead and bring the rig to a stop with extra room to spare in front of you. There are two reasons for this. First is to give yourself some extra time to react should you miscalculate. The other reason is to allow about 10 feet or so to creep forward after coming to a complete stop. This releases some heat from the brake pads and rotors, guarding against “glazing” and prolonging their life.

Turning is also going to be much different – remember that the trailer is going to cut to the inside of your path so make sure you give it plenty of space!

Backing Up: You Can Do It!

Tao-of-Towing_Trailer-Backup-Assist_500x333Another thing you’ll need to experiment with is backing up, and just so you know: it can be very frustrating and counter-intuitive at first. Though many newer Ford Vehicles come equipped with Trailer Backup Assist, where all you have to do is turn a knob to steer the trailer, learning to do it the old-fashioned way is an invaluable skill to have.

Try this: grip the steering wheel on the sides and use only your mirrors to see. Go very slow. If the trailer needs to go right, raise your right hand. Raise your left to go left. If the trailer starts to “jackknife,” or forms an “L” shape relative to your vehicle, stop and slowly pull forward to straighten it out and try again. Jackknifing will put strain on the hitch and the trailer, so it should be avoided if possible. The important thing is to not give up – it’s not an easy thing to do, and will take practice and patience to get the hang of it. Once you’ve got it down, be sure to congratulate yourself and revel in your accomplishment!

Tao-of-Towing_1_800x375

Time To Hit The Road To Adventure!

Ok, so now you’re comfortable with the added length of your vehicle with trailer in tow, and know what to expect regarding acceleration, turning, and braking. It’s time to hitch up your camper or trailer and embark on your summer adventure! Be sure to run through the list above before setting out and double check all of your connections. If your trailer is taller than your vehicle, make sure you know the full height and plan your route accordingly. You’ll also be going slower than normal and stopping for gas more often, so give yourself some extra time. Once everything is in order and your load is properly secured, it’s time to head out.

Every time you stop after the first 10 minute “pull over and double check,” be in the habit of inspecting the trailer for anything out of place. On the road, keep an eye on other vehicles and where they are in relation to the back of the trailer. If you have your signal on and aren’t sure if it’s safe to merge, some drivers know to flash their lights to let you know the trailer is clear. This is common “trucker code” and hope it comes in handy – no matter which end of it you’re on.

What To Do If Your Trailer Starts Swaying or “Fishtailing.”

It happens to the best of us: the trailer gets a little squirrely out on the highway. This can happen because of a sudden gust of wind, the rush of air from a passing car, or making sudden movements. The best way to guard against this is referring to your owner’s manual for tips on loading the trailer and checking tongue weight or postponing the trip on windy days. Should you notice your trailer swaying on the road, here’s what you can do to save it.

First, stay calm and resist the urge to hit the brake – this will only make things worse. Take your foot off the gas and gently apply the trailer brake. Newer Ford Vehicles equipped with Trailer Sway Control will do this automatically. Do this in short pulses until it straightens out; the trailer moving slower than your vehicle will “drag it” and only allow it to move forward, not side-to-side. In an absolute worst-case scenario, you can speed up a little bit to correct it on the opposite end, assuming you have room in front of you. However, your first instinct should be to apply the trailer’s brakes and not your vehicle’s.

Ford & Vanderbilt University Study the Phantom Traffic Jam Phenomenon

June 29th, 2018

Photo of a traffic jam with no cause, or a "Phantom Traffic Jam" in West Michigan Interstate

Borgman Ford would like to wish everyone in West Michigan a fun, happy, and safe Fourth of July weekend. Though Independence Day isn’t until Wednesday, US 131, I-96, and I-196 are sure to be packed this weekend with people flocking up north or to the lakeshore.

If you’ve ever experienced a sudden stop on the expressway, and after crawling along for a while, discover there was no apparent reason for the slowdown, you’ve just witnessed a “Phantom Traffic Jam.” Apart from being a nuisance, Phantom Traffic Jams cause headaches for logistics companies too, so Ford and Vanderbilt University teamed up to identify the causes and how to prevent them. The biggest reason was reactionary braking, and we already have the tech for that: Ford’s Adaptive Cruise Control! Watch the video below and read some excerpts from the Official Ford Media Center to learn more.

We Have The Tech: Ford, Vanderbilt Show We Don’t Have To Wait For Self-Driving Cars To Mitigate Phantom Traffic Jams

Ford and Vanderbilt University researchers are demonstrating this week that so-called phantom traffic jams could be minimized with widespread use of adaptive cruise control available today in most Ford vehicles.

The team conducted what is believed to be the largest, most realistic demonstration of its kind, showing that existing technology could help minimize phantom traffic jams, which happen for seemingly no reason and can cause hazardous traffic backups.

On a closed Ford test track, 36 drivers simulated normal highway traffic using adaptive cruise control, which can automatically slow down and speed up to keep pace with the car in front without getting fatigued or distracted. Those drivers then drove the same course, but without the technology – meaning they had to manually brake and accelerate the vehicle.

The results: vehicles using adaptive cruise control reduced the impact of a braking event more than those vehicles without the activated technology. Even with just one in three vehicles using adaptive cruise control, the test yielded similar traffic-busting benefits.

“A fun Fourth of July family road trip can quickly become irritating when traffic slows to a crawl – especially once you learn there was no reason for the gridlock,” said Michael Kane, supervisor, Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology. “We encourage Ford owners who have adaptive cruise control to use it during their summer travels in the hope this smart technology today can be that first step to help ease commutes.”

Ford currently offers adaptive cruise control on 71 percent of U.S. models. To read the full article, visit Media.Ford.com.

Borgman Collision Center: De-Mystifying The Auto Insurance Claims Process in West MI

June 21st, 2018

Photo of a West Michigan Body Shop professional inspecting damage to a vehicle
Borgman Ford is Grand Rapids & West Michigan’s one stop shop for all of your collision repair needs. Whether you drive a Ford, Mazda, or any other make of vehicle, our experienced team of professionals will restore your vehicle to pre-accident condition.

If you’re visiting the Borgman Ford Collision Center, chances are you’re not having the best day of your life. Customers sometimes have to spend untold amounts of time on the phone with their insurance company, only to come away with incomplete or conflicting information.

Below, we’re going to go over a few common points of confusion when navigating the collision repair process. We’ll also highlight some of the services we provide to get your vehicle back on the road faster and lessen the inconvenience.

By Michigan Law, You Have The Right To Choose Your Own Body Shop

If you’ve ever been in an accident, right after reporting it to the police you usually spend some time on the phone with your insurance company. The insurance company may tell you exactly which shop to take your vehicle to. This might make you feel uneasy, and rightfully so – you may not know this shop or their reputation.

Choosing your own collision center is your decision by law. However, don’t expect the claims representative to just say, “Ok.” Remember the insurance companies have agreements with one or more shops in your area. They’ll want to send referrals to them in exchange for lower rates and the use of used or aftermarket parts. A common tactic used to funnel customers to their preferred shops is to warn them about possible delays, added hassle, special requirements, added cost or less warranty coverage, which wouldn’t be a problem with their preferred shop. Do not allow yourself to be pressured by this.

Insurance companies have certain expectations their preferred shop must maintain, so the insurance company who sends the most business their way, gets their rules followed more closely than others. So, if you are one of the unfortunate insureds who have insurance through a smaller company, you will be delayed in the repair process so the larger insurance companies get their needs taken care of first. We treat all customers fairly and perform the repairs as quickly as possible.

Rest assured: the Borgman Ford Collision Team has many years of experience negotiating with insurance companies and will do so on your behalf. We will make sure your vehicle gets thoroughly inspected, and the work gets done right the first time – complete with a lifetime warranty. We make every attempt to use original new parts as recommended by the manufacturer, even if we have to lose some money on the repairs. Your vehicle will also be returned to you in a timely fashion, no matter what kind of horror stories the adjuster is telling you over the phone.

“We will work with any insurer to get the job done, but we work to satisfy the customer’s needs first,” says John Workman, the Body Shop Manager at Borgman Collision. “Not officially partnering with insurers has allowed us to advocate for the owner – they’re ultimately who we want to leave happy.”

No, You Don’t Need An Estimate For Approval From Your Insurer

Although you will get an estimate for the cost of repairs to your vehicle from Borgman Ford, it may not necessary for the insurance company to have one before the process can begin. Your insurance company may accept our estimate or send their adjuster who inspects the damage to your vehicle and makes a determination as to what the cost of the damage is. The funds are intended to compensate your losses for the damage to the vehicle, and Borgman Ford can help by negotiating that amount to ensure that it’s enough to restore the vehicle to pre-incident condition. This brings us to our next point:

If Your Vehicle Is In Our Facility, The Adjuster Will Be Able To See Hidden Damage

Even if you were only in a minor fender-bender, there may be hidden damage to structural or mechanical components of your vehicle, so it’s worth having it looked over. Insurance adjusters are trained professionals that do this every day, but in some cases, it’s not always possible to inspect a vehicle fully when at your home or at a drive-up facility. Borgman Ford will ensure that the adjuster has the ability and resources to go through your vehicle with a fine-toothed comb while we act as an extra set of eyes during the process for you.

June 15th, 2018

The New 2018 Ford Expedition earned top government crash test ratings - keeping you and your family safer in West Michigan

The New Mazda3 Named Kelley Blue Book’s Coolest Car Under $20K for the 5th Year Straight!

June 12th, 2018

Mazda3 Named Kelley Blue Book’s Coolest New Car Under Twenty Thousand Dollars for the Fifth Year in a Row
Borgman Mazda was delighted to learn that the Mazda3 was placed at the top of KBB.com’s Coolest New Car list for the 5th year in a row. Although, as any West Michigan Mazda driver will tell you, this isn’t terribly surprising either. The current generation of Mazda3 has many infotainment, comfort,  and driver-assist features not usually found in its class or price point. It has been engineered around Mazda’s Jinba Ittai design principles – a Japanese term used to describe the harmony between a horse and rider – which ensures a thrilling driving experience no matter where you’re going. All of this is supplemented by an impressive 40 highway mpg and a refined exterior body style.

This recent article from InsideMazda tells more about the Kelley Blue Book “cool cars” list and how they’re ranked. Here is an excerpt from the article.

Mazda3 Tops Kelley Blue Book’s Coolest New Cars For The Fifth Year In A Row

MP3 players, DVDs and PDAs – not many things have remained “cool” over the past 15 years. The compact Mazda3 is an exception, however, appearing on Kelley Blue Book’s 10 Coolest Cars list every year since the car debuted in 2003. To make the recognition even cooler, Mazda3 takes the No. 1 spot for the fifth year in a row.

“Available in both sedan and hatchback form, the Mazda3 offers practicality that appeals to compact car buyers, with sportiness that makes even daily chores more fun,” said Michael Harley, executive editor for Kelley Blue Book.

Two longstanding criteria – that the vehicle is both fun-to-drive and fun-to-own – are critical among the deciding factors of what Kelley Blue Book editors freely admit is a very subjective “cool factor,” which is also the overarching No. 1 criterion for a vehicle to place on this list. Each vehicle is available for purchase starting at under $20,000, using Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price as the yardstick.
