It has been a while since I have sold a car here, but I thought it might be time to try again. Up for sale is a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. The car is being sold with NO RESERVE! It was used by a sheriff's department in southern Wisconsin and is in about as good of a condition as you can get! They have a history of turning cars over quickly and I am sure this one off the first retired 2011 cruisers on eBay. It does show 122,859 miles. They are all highway miles as that department does not contract with any cities in the county. This Crown Vic comes with many desired options, and has the rare Arizona Beige Metallic color. The interior is Light Camel, and is INCREDIBLY clean! It is in great condition, and it's hard to do better!
Some small changes were made for the 2011 model year. The front seat bolsters and headrests were redone. It does feel different than previous Crown Vics. The bolster switch was relocated to the right bottom of the seat. Side airbags became standard equipment. This car is equipped with the 'plug and play' option. All of the wiring for the strobe lights and the light bar is still there. The wig wag module it still mounted under hood and I am sure would still work if powered. All wiring is hidden away, but can be accessed.
A walk around the car shows a nearly perfect body. I found 1 ding on a quarter panel, and 1 scuff on the rear bumper cover. They are so small that the camera couldn't pick them up! It had a couple of stone chips of which I touched up. This car does not have holes all over it either. They are only in the roof. The only hole that is sealed and plugged was for the light bar. The radio antennas and the GPS antenna are still on the car creating no holes. Spotlight works good. Headlights are crystal clear. All glass in the car is perfect as well with no chips, cracks, or pits. Overall, I would call the body a 9-9.5. They are hard to find this straight!
The interior is the Light Camel color. In police form, it is very hard to keep clean. This is the cleanest I have seen in this color. Apparently, no one ever had coffee in this car! Rare options like carpet and cloth back seat come with this car. It looks like none of the seats have been sat in as they are that clean. It appears that some minor upholstery work was done on the back of the drivers seat. Likely rubbed through cloth from the partition. The steering wheel has some dye rubbed off of it. Driving gloves, I am guessing... The carpet only has very minor dirt stains, but they are hard to find. The sheriff's department did swipe the floor mats out of it, though. The headliner does show some minor wear from the partition. Look at the pics. Can it come cleaner?
The 4.6 SOHC V8 engine starts and runs perfectly. The motor can run on gasoline or E85. It pulls very nicely and has the power that it is supposed to have. The transmission is spot on with no erratic or sloppy shifts. The car is equipped with the 3.27 locking axle. It just received a Mobil 1 oil change (drum here to prove it) with an OE oil filter. Everything works as it should. There are no check engine, or any other trouble lights on. Goodyear Eagle RSA tires show 50% on front and 70% on the rear. Just turn the key and fire it up, and go anywhere you want.
Unlike other eBay sellers, I try to provide a COMPLETE description of the car. If you have any questions, please ask. I will respond promptly. Once again, the Crown Vic is being sold with NO RESERVE and a low price of $6250 to start. You can't find 2011s this clean at the auction for this price! I will accept cash or certified funds as payment. Payment must be made within 7 days of completion of auction, and removal within 14 days of completion of auction. If you want to fly and drive, I will pick you up at Mitchell International in Milwaukee and take you to the car with no charge. Good luck!

Companies ranging in size from small startups to major automakers have been experimenting with solar-powered charging stations for EVs and plug-in hybrids. And, of course, people have been powering vehicles with onboard solar panels for quite some time, too. Still, Ford's new C-Max Solar Energi Concept shows the promise of a truly practical implementation of solar on a production vehicle, and it may not be as far off in the future as we had thought.
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 13:32:00 EST
As we reported a few days ago, the Solar concept makes use of a "concentrator lens" that focuses sunlight onto the Ford's roof-mounted solar panels. The special lens follows the rays of the sun to maximize the amount of charge being fed to the batteries of the car, taking about a day to fully charge the 21-mile, all-electric range of the C-Max Energi. Ford data suggests that combination might be enough to power 75 percent of all trips made by a statistically average driver. In turn, using the sun to power a vehicle could reduce yearly C02 emissions by up to four metric tons when compared with the driver of an average gasoline-powered sedan.
We've got live images of the C-Max Solar Energi Concept, jauntily tilted on its display to best present it's signature solar panels, straight from the CES floor.
Just one year after launching the all-new 2013 Fusion, Ford is reportedly set to alter the sedan's powertrain lineup with the addition of a new 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. A member of Blue Oval Forums apparently got their hands on the ordering guide for the 2014 model year Fusion, and this 1.5-liter mill is set to be introduced with late availability.

This lines up with other news about the Chinese-market Mondeo being offered with a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost - a derivative of the 1.0-liter triple that will come to North America under the hood of the Fiesta (note: the 1.0 is also offered in the current Euro-spec Mondeo). In the Chinese application, the larger three-pot engine produces 177 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is very close to the current 1.6-liter inline-four's output numbers of 178 hp and 184 lb-ft.
What's interesting, however, is that the 1.6-liter engine will reportedly still be offered in the Fusion, but only with the six-speed manual transmission. The smaller 1.5-liter EcoBoost will only be mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic, and will feature start/stop. This means that while the 1.5 is slightly down on power compared to the 1.6, it could easily improve fuel economy numbers, allowing the Fusion to regain the title of having the best mileage in the segment, likely besting the 38 miles per gallon of the Nissan Altima. Currently, the Fusion 1.6 is rated at 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.
According to Automotive News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching a probe into 400,000 Ford F-150 models over possible acceleration problems. According to the article, NHTSA has received 95 reports "alleging incidents of reduced engine power during hard accelerations" on 2011 to 2013 F-150 models equipped with the company's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
Automotive News reports that Ford has issued three technical service bulletins "related to intermittent stumble/misfire on acceleration from highway cruise in humid or damp conditions," according to the government agency's documents. About one third of the 95 reports NHTSA has received cited humid or rainy conditions when these problems allegedly occurred.
These technical service bulletins have allowed dealers to address a "condition related to moisture accumulation in the charge air cooler during extended highway cruising at constant throttle in humid or damp conditions," AN reports, citing NHTSA documents. Furthermore, the TSB outlines details for "reprogramming the powertrain control module with the latest calibration and installing a new CAC and air deflector plate."
