At Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids, it still makes us giddy when we hear the unmistakable sound of a Ford Mustang GT roaring to life.

It doesn’t matter if you’re just getting into muscle cars or a devoted Mustang fan. Your hairs stand up on end, you may get the butterflies, or your pupils might dilate – this is all by design.

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 »

However, did you know that there is research showing it’s good for you?
