2009 Ford Escape Xlt Sport Utility 4-door 3.0l on 2040-cars
Anchorage, Alaska, United States
Very good low mile, Alaska vehicle with a strong & powerful engine. Cannot do doughnuts due to traction control feature. Did not install studded tires last winter and car performed beautifully. Never slipped or lost control. Comes equipped with standard sized towing receiver. Already wired for towing. I've towed with it many times. Very good tow vehicle. Can tow toys on toy trailers, can tow work trailers, or small travel trailer without problem. Plug in ipod or cellphone, sound comes from vehicle speakers. Very nice to hear personal custom ipod or cellphone music or programs over vehicle speaker. I've owned it for about 2.5 years. Selling vehicle due to moving out of state. Don't want the expense of driving it down to Florida. Before I bought it, I had certified mechanic do complete check as it is a reconstructed title. Mechanic said it is a good vehicle and would buy it himself.No leaks. New brake pads as of late 2013. Current on maintenance needs. I use Mobil 1 long mileage synthetic motor oil in it.Still has about 5k miles before oil needs changed.
Tan and grey interior. Tinted windows.
No scams. In person buyers only.

Artist Ioan Florea has encapsulated a 1971 Ford Torino with 3-D-printed liquid metal transferred onto the car using technology that he developed, and the result is a stunningly shiny, seamless design.

"The surface has the highest coefficient of reflectivity never achieved before," Florea told us in an e-mail, using "nano-materials and nano-pigments that create an internal three-dimensional structure and dictate the polymer how to behave." Sure... We'll leave it to him to make any more 3-D-printed liquid metal-transferred art pieces.
Florea grew up in Romania, and the motivation behind picking the old Ford as his canvas came from his childhood memories of what an American car is - "big and wide and fascinating," he says - and the European name of the car itself, which it shares with an Italian city.
It's happened. General Motors' biggest vehicle market - at least in terms of new model sales - is China. According to TheDetroitBureau.com, GM and its various Chinese joint venture operations enjoyed a 10.6-percent sales increase in the first half of 2013, selling almost 1.6 million units in the market. That puts GM China about 200,000 units ahead of its US sales totals over the same period - this, despite indicators that the communist nation's economy is losing momentum.

TDB notes that like GM, rival Ford has also enjoyed a robust 2013 in China thus far, with its sales up a whopping 47 percent to 407,721 units sold - 75,254 of them in June alone. Between the two US automakers, passenger car sales for the first half of 2013 are up around 14 percent, well ahead of the rest of the industry's 10-percent growth estimates for the market. Some of the sales growth may come as a result of an overall anti-Japan sentiment in China, though the American brands have long outsold their Japanese counterparts in the country.
By The General's own predictions, China will only continue to grow in sales importance. The company has designs on selling over five million cars a year in the market before the end of the decade, a total that figures to dramatically widen the gap versus its US totals - even if America's auto market makes a full recovery to the the salad days of over 17-million units a year.
Dennis Williams, the newly elected president of the UAW, had some tough words for American automakers in his inauguration speech at the 2014 UAW Convention, striking down the possibility of any additional concessions from the 400,000-strong union.
"No more concessions. We are tired of it. Enough is enough," Williams said during his speech. UAW employees have not received a raise in nearly 10 years, according to Reuters.
Considering the recent strong results for Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, the union's demands are likely to carry a bit more weight in next year's negotiations. And considering Williams' tough stance, we could be in for some fireworks once negotiations commence.
