It is spring, time to watch out for potholes

Spring is almost upon us, and that’s great news for many of us out there. On the other hand, spring also means warmer temperatures which translates into more potholes on our roads.

Scenic Route: 2015 Ford F-150 Winter Driving Review

Charlevoix, QC – Not intent on resting on their laurels after earning 2015 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year accolades with the F-150, Ford invited a flight of journalists to test their trucks in conditions more extreme than anything anyone—save Ford’s engineering team—had seen before.
