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.

The one-man band is a rather ridiculous idea, drawing up images of one person attempting to manipulate several instruments, at once, in a vain attempt at creating music. It's usually represented by silly scenes like this. Interestingly, the concept isn't much more successful when the "man" in "one-man band" is replaced with "car," as we see in this video.

It seems that someone rigged up and edited (699 times, we might add) a Ford Fiesta, a bucket, 12 PVC pipes and the natural sounds that a car makes to come up with a song. Now, we don't recognize the tune, so we've no idea if this is a cover or an original piece. And while it's hardly Beethoven, we have to admire the amount of effort the "conductor" went to in his attempt to turn a subcompact car into a musical instrument(s). Take a look (or listen) below for the entire video.
What you see in the above image is a rendering of the Hackmobile Transit Connect Wagon. What is that? It's a "mobile fabrication and hacking unit" that includes tools for metal- and woodworking, 3D and electronics fabrication, a three-axis CNC machine called "The Fabber," a video projector and screen, an air compressor, an 84x48-inch work surface that folds out like a Murphy bed and oh so much more. When not in use, all of the implements fold neatly into the back of Ford's award-winning van.

But perhaps the more important question is why is that? Because Make Magazine held an Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge in conjunction with Ford in which ten teams created were charged with creating "the ultimate Ford Transit Connect Wagon for the do-it-yourself enthusiast." Team Twin Cities Maker won the competition with the Hackmobile, and in addition to winning $10,000, Ford has declared it's actually going to build the thing - which is great, because if they can actually engineer a road-legal Hackmobile Transit Connect Wagon as envisioned, the inevitable A-Team movie reboot might need to think about including it.
Check out the video below for a cheeky walk-through of the Hackmobile, and get all the particulars in the press release below that.
Thanks to the smoke wand in the wind tunnel, you can actually see the difference in our video.
Should you drive with your pickup truck's tailgate up or down? It's an age-old controversy that's divided drivers for decades. Traditionalists will swear you should leave the tailgate down. Makes sense, right? It would seem to let the air flow more cleanly over the body and through the bed. But there's also a school of thought that argues trucks are designed to look and operate in a specific manner, and modern design techniques can help channel the airflow properly. So don't mess with all of that: Leave the tailgate up.
