Borgman Ford Urges Grand Rapids & West Michigan Residents to Share Thoughts on Transportation
Borgman Ford has been serving the Grand Rapids and West Michigan community since 1960, and in that time we’ve had the unique pleasure of watching the city grow. In recent years, Grand Rapids has become a nationally-renowned destination for tourism, art, medicine, technology, and more. However, as more people flock here, the fastest-growing city in Michigan, issues with public transportation, traffic flow, parking, crosswalks, and other infrastructure have become more pronounced. The good news is, Ford is offering help.
We’re happy to share that Grand Rapids has been selected to participate in the Ford City of Tomorrow Challenge. This summer, Grand Rapids residents are encouraged to share their ideas in this crowdsourced, grassroots effort towards improving the transportation and infrastructure of their city.

Treating Customers Right is a Borgman Family Tradition
Borgman has been giving auto shoppers in Grand Rapids and West Michigan fair trades since we opened our doors almost 60 years ago. When Fred Borgman founded the dealership back in 1960, the concept of being honest and transparent with his customers served as the cornerstone of the business. Fred outfitted his sales team with red sports jackets to make them more visible – and therefore accountable – around town. Soon, Borgman became known as “The Home of the Redcoats,” which was synonymous with friendly, professional, and transparent conduct.
Times have certainly changed since then, but our dedication to Fred Borgman’s vision has not. Borgman Ford Mazda is still family-owned and operated, with Fred’s grandson Matt sitting as General Manager and ensuring that everyone who visits is treated with respect.
What is a Borgman Fair Trade Deal?
When we say we give everyone a “Fair Trade Deal,” here’s exactly what we mean: when you bring your current vehicle to us, we offer you what it’s worth. It doesn’t matter if you intend to trade it for a new vehicle or sell it outright – the number is the same. No low-balling, “x-over-your-trade” shenanigans, predatory guaranteed-approval-style lending, or bull. Read the rest of this entry »

Ford Studies Emotions While Driving Ford Performance Vehicles
Ask any sports car owner in West Michigan and they’ll tell you – driving a performance car like the New Ford Mustang or the Ford Focus RS is an absolute joy, and Borgman agrees. The on-demand power and responsive handling add a little thrill to something as ordinary or mundane your morning commute.
However, did you know that there is research showing it’s good for you? This article recently published by Ford will go over what they call “buzz moments,” or small periods of excitement that contribute to our overall wellbeing. They also worked with some neuroscientists and vehicle designers to produce a “Buzz Car” which syncs the passengers’ emotions to a stunning LED light show. Read the rest of this entry »
