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!

This year more than most, it's pleasant when we can string together a few days without word of an automaker or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announcing a bunch of new recalls. It's seemingly been a little quiet on this front lately (barring a spider-related Suzuki issue revealed early today), but now we have word of the government safety agency opening a Preliminary Evaluation into the 2013 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor, a probe that could potentially affect an estimated 20,000 vehicles.
Wed, 24 Jul 2013 13:30:00 EST
The issue being investigated concerns failures of the front brake hose on the vehicle that show "small splits in the hoses near the body side ferrule of the hose assembly," according to the agency, and the issue could result in longer stopping distances. The feds have reports of 13 malfunctions affecting 11 Explorer units. However, it's important to note that all of the incidents come from a single, unnamed metropolitan police fleet that operates 46 of them. According to The Detroit News, the failures generally took place between December and July.
NHTSA is investigating further to find if this is a more widespread issue than just this one fleet. Ford spokesperson Kelli Felker confirmed to us, "We are cooperating with NHTSA on this investigation, as we always do." Scroll down to read the agency's report.
Ford is rumored to be considering concurrent production for old and new F-150 models in a bid to minimize supply chain disruptions and inventory. Automotive News is reporting that the Blue Oval will build both the current F-150 and its replacement, which we showed you testing just last month, side by side for about half a year before switching over entirely to next-generation production.

As IHS Automotive analyst Mike Jackson told AN, "In order to ramp up, you have to retool...and that means you have to take capacity offline." Building both models alongside could allow Ford to cope with the still strong demand for the current F-150, while populating dealer supplies and working out supply chain kinks for the new model before making a full-time switch.
A loss of capacity when demand is so strong, even for a short period, could spell bad news for Ford, which nets an estimated 90 percent of its global profit on pickups and large SUVs. As AN states, Ford produces the F-150 in both Kansas City, Missouri and Dearborn, Michigan, which allows it to maintain some degree of flexibility in production. The new F-150 is expected to arrive at the 2014 North American International Auto Show as a 2015 model, with a design inspired by the Atlas Concept first shown at the Detroit Auto Show last January.
One of the perks of reviewing all manner of cars and trucks is that we're exposed to all the different infotainment systems. Whether Cadillac's CUE, Chrysler's UConnect, BMW's iDrive or MyFord Touch, we sample each and every infotainment system on the market.
Not surprisingly, some are better than others. It seems consumers have come to a similar consensus, with Consumer Reports claiming that Ford and Lincoln, Cadillac and Honda offer the worst user infotainment experiences. Not surprisingly, you won't find much argument among the Autoblog staff.
Take a look below to see just what it is about the latest batch of infotainment systems that grinds CR's gears. After that, scroll down into Comments and let us know if you agree with the mag's views.
