General overview:


Model: 3500 6.0L V8 Work Cargo Van A/C Tow Pkg & Stereo
Engine: V8 6L OHV

This Express has the 323-hp, 6.0-liter V-8 with 373 pounds-feet of tourque. Standard safety features for all models include: four-wheel-disc antilock brakes and lap/shoulder belts for the all center seats. This engine has air-filter and oil-life monitors and are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that incorporates a Tow/Haul mode.  This 6.0-liter V-8 has a fast-idle option that makes it easier to run accessories while the vehicle is idling. 
  • 86,000 miles only
  • 6 liter V8. Excellent engine. 
  • Reliable, clean, well maintained
  • Great battery. Starts perfectly. Very reliable.
  • Electric Tow Bar (wired, ready to be connected), A/C (good), power windows, no rust, great bodywork, regularly serviced
  • 5 New tyres, with excellent tread
  • Seats 15 (full set of seats). Seats are very fast and easy to remove, for big loads.
  • Was originally a Government vehicle. So, very well maintained, religiously serviced and in excellent condition.

Great, new stuff:

  1. Brand new paint job (white) - paid $1,500 - this week
  2. Brand new window tint (professional, all round) - paid $350 - this week
  3. Brand new spark plugs, oil change and filter - paid $100 - this week
  4. Brand new seat covers - this week
  5. Brand new underlay - this week
  6. Brand new carpet - this week
  7. Professionally cleaned throughout - this week - $100

That's $2050 of value, right there!

Only negatives (very minor, but worth mentioning for complete transparency):

  • Exterior: A very, very small dent on one side panel. It is almost invisible to the naked eye.
  • Interior: Original seats (gray leather/vinyl) are a bit tatty (hence seat covers)
  • Interior: Original roof fabric is a bit tatty (might replace)
  • Interior: One interior rear door panel is missing (easy to replace and easy to find cheaply on ebay)

So... with a very small bit of work, and a little bit of tender love and care, this van will be in great shape. Adding possibly 5k to the value. These vans (at this mileage and condition) regularly sell for 15-20k. They also hold their value well and it is easy to find many of these which are going strong at 150, 200, 250,000 miles. Case in point, I recently saw one advertised on a local craigslist, with 260k on the clock, going for 8,500. Enough said. These hold value, work forever and are much loved by all.


I have a very genuine reason for sale - my wife doesn't like driving it and she makes the real rules. She wants something smaller and something that looks a little cooler! Otherwise, we've been very happy with it. It's been great to us and great for the kids.


I am willing to deliver this anywhere (within reason) in the Continental USA for 1,000 extra. Mainly because no-one else seems to do that and I'm up for a road trip.


These vans sell fast. This is in great condition and the buyer will be very happy. Bid in confidence and without delay, this won't hang about!


So tell me matey, what are you waiting for?


Don't delay, stick your bid in now.

 
NO TIMEWASTERS. NO BIDDERS WITH ZERO, NEGATIVE OR VERY LOW FEEDBACK. NO TYRE KICKERS. ONLY BID IF YOU WANT TO BUY. NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT (20%) WITHIN 48 HOURS OF AUCTION. BALANCE IN FULL WITHIN 7 DAYS. I WILL ONLY DELIVER UPON RECEIPT OF 100% CLEAR FUNDS AND THE $1,000 DELIVERY CHARGE.

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:13:00 EST

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
