If you live and drive in Alberta, then you know that for three quarters of the year, driving conditions are, well, somewhat precarious. We’re not saying that every foray out onto our province’s roads in winter is an occasion in which you take your life into your own hands, but there certainly are days when conditions suggest as much. At Kentwood Ford, winter is nothing new to us. That’s why we want to pass our winter driving knowledge on to you, so you can drive safely throughout the snowy season.
While winter road conditions in Alberta might drain the blood from your face, there are easy steps you can take to mitigate stress and help navigate road-bound hazards more easily. Some have to do with available accessories and other seasonal modifications designed to optimize your vehicle’s capability while driving over kilometres of snow and ice. At Kentwood Ford, we’ve got a huge selection of seasonal service options, as well as parts and accessories, all backed up by expert advice and knowledge.
