Frequently Asked Questions with Answers

Q:  Why are you selling this van?
A:  I bought it in May 2012, planning on using it to transport students to an after-school tutorial program I was starting (I am a retired teacher).  We also wanted to use it for group overnight and shopping excursions for elderly people, sports teams and other groups.  But my wife had to resign from her job (our primary source of income) because of health reasons, and I didn't have the money to get the tutorial program started.  So we don't need the van.

Q:  Why do you still have the van, almost a year after buying it?
A:  It's such a nice van and I invested so much in it fixing it up for how we wanted to use it (about $2,500) that I hated to give it up.  I kept hoping that I could start some kind of transportation service with it.

Q:  So, why are you selling it now?
A:  I am working 50 hours per week driving a cab and just don't have the time to get anything going with it.  Besides, we don't have the money to keep making payments and paying insurance on it.

Q:  Why does it have about 1,000 more miles on it than when you bought it?
A:  After my wife resigned from her job, we moved three times (from our home in Onalaska to San Marcos then Fredericksburg and finally to Corpus Christi, Texas, looking for work for me (not easy at age 68).

Q:  In what kind of condition are the surface features and appearance of the van?
E:  Excellent.  When we purchased it from Texas Direct Auto in Sanger, TX (a suburb of Houston) the van had a few cosmetic blemishes (a missing cigarette lighter, some broken ceiling air conditioner vents, a couple of small stains on the upholstery), but I fixed all those.  It now has no broken or missing parts or tears or stains in the carpet or upholstery.  The paint is in beautiful condition - no noticeable chips or scratches.  The only two blemishes are a small dent in the right corner of the front bumper (not noticeable unless you look at it closely) and a shallow dent on the lower edge of the body underneath the rear passenger door, just above the running board (also not noticeable unless you look closely - see photo).  Except when we were moving, the van has been in storage or kept covered.  For the past six months, since we arrived in Corpus Christi, it has not been moved and we have kept it covered (see photo).

Q:  How about the structural and mechanical parts of the van?
A:  Again, practically perfect.  We had a Ford master mechanic check all the structural and mechanical components (engine, steering, brakes, wheels, exhaust system and suspension).  He did an OBD2 computer analysis of the engine and a test drive, and reported no defects. He stated: "Engine is strong, starts, runs and performs very good. Transmission shifts very good as well. Transmission fluid is clean.  There is power to it. No abnormal noises from suspension or brakes. Van drives very good. No abnormal exhaust emissions noted at this time. Steering feels tight and responsive to driver input. Vehicle steers and brakes straight. No brake fade or pulsation noted at anytime during duration of test drive."  From the time we drove the van from the dealer in Sanger to our home in Onalaska, then all around central Texas looking for employment (a little over 1,000 miles), it ran great - very smooth with plenty of power.  We pulled a 5X8 utility trailer loaded with a refrigerator and other items up and down the hills of Texas, from San Marcos to Fredericksburg to Corpus Christi, with ease - hardly even noticing that we were pulling anything.

Q:  What sets this van apart as being a better deal than other similar vans for sale on Ebay?
A:  (1) Low mileage (43,380) for a three-year-old van, (2) Beautiful, practically like-new running condition and appearance, (3) Loaded with amenities (separate front and rear air conditioner controls, AM/FM radio, MP3/CD player with 3 sets of speakers and front and rear audio controls, driver controlled power windows and locks, etc.), (4) Extended size 15-passenger van, (5) Extras - running boards and trailer hitch + wiring harness, (6) Four new LT245/75R16 all-weather Nexen Rodian HT tires purchased in Fredericksburg, just before we moved to Corpus, (7) Unbeatable minimum bid asking price for a van this nice.  The van retailed new for over $35,000.  The present NADA Blue Book value for a clean van like this (without the trailer hitch and wiring harness) is $19,500.  Considering what we have put into the van (about $2,500 in repairs, maintenance and extras plus a down payment, taxes, registration and 11 months of payments and insurance), we will have to take a big loss, but we really need to sell it.  We are asking for only what we owe on the van plus a little extra to cover the cost of this Ebay ad.    


We are asking a $200 immediate deposit and the balance of the winning bid (cash or cashier's check) when the van is picked up at our home in Corpus Christi, Texas.  When the van is picked up, we will issue the purchaser a bill of sale and mail the title to the purchaser (overnight delivery) as soon as we pay the van off and receive the title from our Credit Union.

Questions?  Please feel free to contact me through the Ask (the Seller) a Question link.  Or, you are welcome to check the van out in person or have an independent inspection done.  Just contact me so that we can arrange for time and location.

Ken Block is at it again in Gymkhana 6

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 12:45:00 EST

If there's one thing we'll say about Ken Block and his latest installment in the Gymkhana family, it's that it's far more structured than previous videos, but that doesn't mean it skimps on the entertainment. Block is on a purpose-built course which was touted as "The... Ultimate... Gymkhana... Grid... Course" in last week's preview. Unlike Gymkhana 5, which took placed on closed streets in San Francisco, this course seems much more compact.
Block has an entire array of challenges to tackle in his 650-horsepower Ford Fiesta ST, and none of them look particularly easy. In fact, we'd argue that Gymkhana 6's grid course requires much more precise driving that previous titles. There are Segways, Lamborghinis and massive pieces of construction equipment that all must be dealt with.
We've got the entire 6:28 of Gymkhana madness for you down below. Scroll down for the video and then hit Comments and let us know how this installment compares to previous Block works.

Ford to pay $17.35 million over Escape recall

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 15:30:00 EST

Ford had a bit of a recall spree around this time last year, with a pair of issues on the then-new 2013 Escape, followed by a recall of 423,000 2001 to 2004 Escapes because they might accelerate of their own accord. Accordingly, Uncle Sam pasted Ford with a $17.35 million fine because it took too long to inform customers, according to a report from Automotive News.
Ford agreed to settle with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, accepting the fine but not admitting fault. The recall, which afflicted Escapes with the 3.0-liter V-6 along with 217,000 Mazda Tributes from 2001 to 2006 and 2008, was due to faulty gas pedals that could stay down after a driver removed their foot.
Ford issued a statement regarding the fine, saying, "We take the safety of our customers seriously and continuously evaluate our processes for improvements. While we are confident in our current processes for quickly identifying and addressing potential vehicle issues, Ford agreed to this settlement to avoid a lengthy dispute with the government."

Ford F-150 King Ranch celebrates 'history and authenticity' for 2015 [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 19:00:00 EST

What's life like on an authentic Texas ranch? We honestly have no idea, having never lived on such a ranch, but we imagine it requires lots of hard work, grit and determination to keep all 825,000 acres - that's larger than the state of Rhode Island - of the King Ranch in Texas under control. Indeed, a total of 350 vehicles, all of which come from Ford, we're told, are currently in use by the ranch. No wonder, then, that the collaboration between Ford and King Ranch has lasted for 15 successful years.
For 2015, in celebration of that 15th anniversary, Ford is debuting three new King Ranch models today at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The most significant is the 2015 F-150 King Ranch, which, naturally, will add unique interior and exterior bits and pieces to the new aluminum-intensive F-Series pickup. Color choices will consist of Caribou, Bronze Fire, Guard and Ruby Red Metallic Clearcoat, with a range of two-tones to go along with a monochromatic scheme in Caribou. Inside, a bespoke King Ranch interior will be swathed in Premium Mesa Brown leather.
Joining the F-150 King Ranch on dealership floors later this year will be 2015 King Ranch editions of the Super Duty pickup and Expedition fullsize SUV, all of which will offer similar levels of content. Scroll down for more details and two videos from Ford, and be sure to check out the high-res image gallery above, which was shot by the official State Photographer of Texas, Wyman Meinzer.
