I bought this car directly from a rural (Minnesota) sheriff department just over a year ago.
It is in great shape, and I have used it daily since I bought and drove back across country to California.
It has recently gotten a complete mechanical going over, including replacing the Alternator and Battery, New serpentine belt. Replaced several of the individual coils (coil on plug system) and just completed a full tune up with new plugs, all new filters (air and oil) as well as changing the oil.
Tires are in great shape, they are police style, plenty of life left on them (see photo's). Brakes are good, replaced a few months ago.
This vehicle passed the California SMOG test with extremely clean readings. It has been well maintained its entire life, and I have taken great care of it during my tenure :)
I will mention there are no rips or tears on the upholstery, but there are a few coffee stains etc. On the outside, there is a police spotlight on the driver side that is non functioning at this time.
The body is in pretty good shape, negatives are holes in the front bumper where the push-bar used to be, some plugs where the police equipment used to be mounted on the roof, but never a leak and there is one of the small police hubcaps missing.
This is a car that is a pleasure to drive, it also garnishes a bit more respect rolling down the road than your typical automobile. People tend to just move out of your way when you are cruising down the highway.... cant imagine why :)
I must say that this is a 12 year old former police car, as such it is not in show room condition, it is however well taken care of, but there are defects, and will be sold "As is, Where is".
This is not your standard Black and White unit, this one came loaded from the factory, Cruise control, and carpets came as standard. This is a nice cruiser! I am only selling it as I just bought a new car the other day, and do not need to be paying insurance on 2 cars.

That Mulally was seriously being considered says a great deal about Microsoft and Mulally.
It appears that the chatter about Ford CEO Alan Mulally possibly leaving early to take over as CEO of Microsoft is losing air pretty fast. What's pretty interesting is that it got any traction in the first place.
Apparently sensibilities in India, at least in the case of some Ford marketing partners, are downright lascivious at times. Case in point are a new series of print ads, presumably touting the vast cargo capacity of the Ford Figo hatchback, that involve more than a whiff of T&A, S&M and other sexy abbreviations.

In all seriousness, the advertising campaign is taking some major heat in the Indian press for being outrageously sexist. All three images - which seem to be produced by a graphic artist with some Heavy Metal work in his/her portfolio - show bound and gagged people stuffed into the Figo's boot. With a tagline reads, "Leave Your Worries Behind." one version features a peace-sign throwing Silvio Berlusconi holding hostage three buxom and barely clad women, all wearing ball gags with hands and feet bound. Charming. Another version shows Paris Hilton similarly kidnapping a trio of Kardashians, while a third (tame in terms of the clothing at least), has Michael Schumacher toting Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, and Lewis Hamilton.
Clearly in bad taste, at least, the Indian source also questions the timing of these risqué Ford ads, as the follow by days new anti-rape legislation passed by the Indian Parliament. Ford has responded in a statement, that it and its advertising partner (JWT India) "deeply regret" the ads, and claim that they "never should have happened."
General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
