It was another long, cold, brutal winter, but at long last it looks like spring has sprung! The snow is melting, the temperatures are consistently rising above zero, and the days are getting longer. And the best part of streets no longer covered with ice? A more enjoyable driving experience! (At least where the potholes have already been filled in.)
To help you get in the mood for some fair(ish)-weather driving, your friends at Team Ford have put together a short list of some of our favourite vehicle accessories for the spring season!
All Weather Floor Mats
If there’s one thing you can rely on during a spring in Edmonton, it’s that you’ll probably experience every kind of weather. So, having a set of all-weather thermoplastic rubber mats can help protect the interior of your vehicle! These heavy duty floor coverings can catch and hold snow, mud, and slush, so your carpeting doesn’t get wrecked.
Spring is one of those times of year when it can’t decide if it should be raining, snowing, or both. If you’re one of the many Albertans tooling around in a Ford F-150 (or, really, any of our amazing trucks), you might consider a bed cover for that back cargo area! They’re weather sealed to protect your tools or luggage from the elements, easy to install, and even easier to roll up when you don’t need it!
Temperatures can fluctuate pretty wildly in Alberta during the spring. From late cold snaps, to unexpectedly hot days, you never know whether you need to grab a jacket or not. So having the ability to start your vehicle ahead of time is handy! Let your heated seats warm up before a cold morning commute, or get the AC cooling things down after a hot afternoon parked in the sun. It may be weirdly uncomfortable outside, but it won’t be when you get behind the wheel.
The roads are pretty messy in the springtime. You can end up with plenty of sludge building up inside your wheel wells and undercarriage. A set of fashionable and durable splash guards on the back wheels can help. Added bonus, cut down on the mud and water you’re spraying on the traffic behind you! Everyone wins.
Hey, while you’re getting your vehicle ready for the warmer months, now is also the right time to make an appointment to swap your winter tires back out. Be sure to book an appointment with our Quick Lane Service Centre to be at the front of the line!
