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.
Auto start works well. Has engine heater to keep engine warm during winter weather. 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
a certified mechanic do complete check as it is a reconstructed title.
Mechanic said it is a good vehicle and would buy it himself. Runs very well. No issues at all. 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.

Hybrids are known for their great fuel economy and low emissions, but it looks like given current market conditions, only about three percent of new car consumers are willing to pay the premium for them. A new study from IHS/Polk finds that the hybrid market share among overall US auto sales are falling, despite more models with the technology on sale than ever before.
Wed, 08 Jan 2014 15:30:00 EST
The study examined new car registrations in March from 2009 through 2014. In that time, the auto industry grew from 24 to 47 hybrid models available to consumers, but market share for the powertrain remained almost stagnant in that time. As of 2009, hybrids held 2.4 percent of the market; it fell slightly to 2.3 percent in 2010 and grew to 3.3 percent in 2013. However, 2014 showed a drop back to 3 percent. Overall hybrid sales have been growing since 2010, but they just aren't keeping up with the total auto market.
According to IHS/Polk, this isn't what you would expect to see. Usually, each new model in the market brings along with it a boost in sales. The growth in hybrid models 2009 to 2014 should have shown a larger increase in share for the segment.
Word coming in from across the pond has it that Ford is working on developing the business case to create a new Fiesta RS. The development is encouraged by the extremely positive reception the existing Fiesta ST has garnered to date, and the emergence of the above-pictured Fiesta RS WRC rally car, but it'll take more than goodwill to make a more extreme version a reality.

According to Auto Express, a new roadgoing Fiesta RS would almost certainly be based closely on the ST version, albeit with some vital differences. Its 1.6-liter turbo four would be increased from 180 horsepower to somewhere around 230 hp, and that powertrain would be accompanied by lightweight alloys inside blistered wheel arches, a stripped-out interior and possibly lightweight bodywork.
The vehicle's approval would reportedly require a strong business case in Europe, and not just in the UK where Ford hot hatches traditionally enjoy a strong following. It's unclear whether the Fiesta RS would potentially make the transatlantic voyage to American showrooms, but between it and the larger Focus RS, hopefully the Blue Oval wouldn't leave its home market out of the action altogether.
A vast majority of hotels frown upon smoking inside the building these days, but Brad Keselowski doesn't follow the rules. During his introduction at the 2013 MiilerCoors Distribution Convention, the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion smoked the tires of his Miller-sponsored Ford Fusion stock car, adding a pair of thick, black stripes to the carpeting of the Marriott World Center's conference room.
This definitely isn't a high-quality video, but it's the perfect vantage point to watch Keselowski lay down some rubber and receive a well-deserved standing ovation after pulling up in front of the crowd. Check out the short-but-sweet video posted below.
