Choosing the Family Car for Your Family

No two families are the same, which means there is no single “best” family car. When deciding which family car is right for you, be sure to think about:


    • Do you have, or plan on having, a small or large family?

    • Will you be driving your kids to school and activities?

    • Do you need extra space for gear?

    • How many car seats will need to fit?


Before committing to a car, be sure to take it for a test drive. See what it would be like to bend down to put a squirming toddler into the backseat or to pass out snacks without taking your eyes off the road.


Once you find a vehicle you like, ask questions. Ask us about safety features and technology.


The more you know before you buy, the easier it will be to put those features to work.

Here at Desjardins Ford, we are ready to help you get your family a new car. Go online today to check out our inventory or give us a call to get your questions answered.
