WinterTiresRanger_800x425
We’ve already had our first major snowfall in West Michigan this season, and we hope everyone made it to their destinations safely. It’s probably not a stretch to say some of us had some trouble getting traction from a stop, going around corners, or braking downhill. There are some driving tips here that might help as a refresher, but the biggest factor in being able to maneuver in the snow and ice isn’t all-wheel drive, it’s your tires. In this Borgman How To, we’ll teach you everything a smart West Michigan shopper needs to know about winter tires including how they’re formulated, designed, and perform.

Borgman Congratulates Winner of Grand Rapids, MI City Of Tomorrow Challenge

November 21st, 2018

Ford and Grand Rapids Team Up Summer 2018 for the Ford Mobility Challenge - finding smart solutions to public transportation concerns
Earlier this year, Borgman Ford announced that Grand Rapids Michigan was selected for the Ford City of Tomorrow Challenge. Today we’re pleased to share the winner of the challenge: Kaizen Health. In the challenge, members of the community were asked to share ideas about how to solve mobility problems within the city. Entrants gave written proposals which were reviewed by other participants and a panel of expert judges, and the winner would be awarded a $100,000 prize to fund a pilot program.

Kaizen Health identified that many people in underserved communities cite transportation as a barrier to their medical care. Doctor visits and trips to the pharmacy can be difficult for the elderly, disabled, and other marginalized patient niches, so Kaizen Health recommended Grand Rapids adopt their patient-focused ridesharing program to remove these barriers and increase attendance.

Compare The 2018 Mazda CX-5 with Other Crossovers in West Michigan

Borgman Mazda is your home for the New 2018 Mazda CX-5 in Grand Rapids. The Mazda CX-5 belongs to a segment that has seen enormous growth and competition in the last 10 years, and that’s the small SUV segment, or as they’re colloquially-known, “crossovers.”

People in West Michigan shopping for crossovers are generally looking for increased ride height, extra capability during the winter, and most of all, available options. Today, we’re going to compare four different vehicles that share the crossover segment with the Mazda CX-5, and see how it stacks up in terms of engine power, towing capacity, cargo space, interior amenities, and more.

The Borgman Service Center is committed to serving all of your automotive needs. This includes ensuring your vehicle’s safety features are performing their absolute best.

Being able to see clearly through your windshield is pretty important, especially since rain, snow, and foggy mornings make driving conditions a little more dangerous. The problem is, it often isn’t something we think about until it becomes an issue.

There are two fairly simple and inexpensive approaches you can take to ensure maximum visibility during a West Michigan rain or snow storm. In this Borgman How To, we’ll be taking a look at high-quality wiper blades and windshield treatments, comparing them, and helping you determine which is right for you.

Ford Drive 4 UR School: Grandville Band Boosters
Saturday, October. 20th 2018 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Grandville Band Booster Program needs our help, and the good news is all you have to do is test drive a New Ford Vehicle! We’d like to invite everyone to join us at Grandville High School on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and take part in the Ford Drive 4 UR School event!

For every person who stops by the high school and test drives that day, Ford will donate $20 to the band boosters for uniforms, instruments, educational materials, or anything else the band program needs. Together, we can help them raise $6,000 in one day!

Anyone 18 years or older with a valid driver’s license and auto insurance can go for a spin, but only one test drive per household will be valid. This only takes a few minutes of your time, but it makes a big difference!

Ford launched the Drive 4 UR School program in 2007 to help raise funding for education. It allows schools and their various programs to continue or expand through participation with the community. Following the program’s success, Ford launched the Drive 4 UR Community program to help other charitable and community organizations in the same way. These two programs have now raised over 35 million dollars for organizations across the nation. To learn more about the program, visit FordDrive4UR.com.

If you’re interested in going, be sure to check out our Event Page on Facebook. We hope to see you there, and Go Dawgs!
