Up for sale is my XP8 Explorer. This is one of the 119 total production out of the three years Saleen produced these. It is black with gray leather. It's a factory supercharged 5.0 liter or 302 with close to 300 hp. Automatic transmission, AWD, factory lowered 1", factory Borla exhaust, and Racecraft shocks. It has a little less than 85k miles on it.
It is missing two of the four original magnesium Saleen wheels as these were prone to crack. I have the two but it rides on a set of powdercoated factory Explorer wheels in black. I had the front bumper painted solid black instead of with the insert as I liked the blackout look, the factory paint was known to peel. I have the template for the number sticker that is supposed to be on it - can get it put on after the auction if buyer desires. All the other cladding is in place and in good condition, even the rare rear spoiler. It has the carbon fiber overlays on the interior pieces and the correct number plate on the center console. It has the correct carbon fiber mirror, too. The factory radio/CD was rebuilt as they are known to have display issues. I also have all four Coco mats - the driver's has a worn spot but the company Cocomats.com will still repair them. Everything works except for the antenna, motor still hums so gear must have broke. Two years ago I replaced basically the whole front suspension to tighten it up so it still drives good to be 10+ years old. The exterior paint has a few bad places where the cladding has rubbed the paint off the vehicle and some scratches but I would still say it's 6.5-7/10. Very minor surface rust underneath but in good shape as I POR15 undercoated everything. Intake has the correct original Saleen cover plate and radiator support/console both have number specific Saleen plates.
The truck has SC rebuilt paperwork (I have the before picture). It had a bent control arm and torsion bar and wheel hit fender. Definitely did not deserve rebuilt status so someone must have done some convincing. Only used Mobil 1 oil. Has new back brakes and newer front brakes. Tires are about 70% front and 40% rear, all matching. Close to 35% tint on all rear windows. I installed a factory roof rack from a newer explorer as the Saleens did not come factory with them.

Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed.
Fri, 09 May 2014 13:29:00 EST
Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only midsize sedans listed by CR were the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The new Dodge Dart and the Dodge Journey round out CR's condemnation of Chrysler.
Ford is taking heat as well, with the Taurus, Edge and their counterparts from Lincoln all listed as the worst vehicles in their respective segments. Toyota doesn't fare much better, with its Lexus IS, Scion iQ and tC also making the list.
Poor Escape. Ever since its launch in 2012, Ford's small CUV has been the subject of many, many, many recalls. And today, The Detroit News is reporting that Ford is adding two more recalls to the 2013-14 model year Escape's permanent record, one of them also involves the C-Max hybrid hatchback.
Mon, 01 Apr 2013 15:59:00 EST
The first recall, covering 692,500 Escape and C-Max vehicles, is due to a software glitch that could cause the airbags - specifically, the safety canopy - to not deploy in a timely fashion during rollover crashes. According to the News, Ford says no crashes or injuries have been reported in relation to this problem.
The second recall, covering 692,700 Escapes, is related to the door handles. The News reports that the exterior door handles could open while the vehicle is in motion, and could also fail to latch properly. Once again, no crashes or injuries have occurred because of this. The National Highway Safety Traffic Administration has not issued an official notice on either recall as of this writing.
There are precious few details, but what we do know is that Ford will be revealing images of "appearance upgrades" for a special-edition 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor on April 9. The slideshow will happen during a Motor Press Guild luncheon at Ford's Design Center Showroom in Irvine, California.
Without photos or further details, we're left to wonder about the extent of these changes, but aren't expecting anything too significant given the venue. Ford is understood to be revealing a next-generation F-150 with a big weight loss - as much as 700 pounds - for 2014, though it isn't yet clear if that's the truck's model year or simply its on-sale year. For at least a couple of years, Ford forums have been suggesting changes will come with the 2014 Raptor, so there could still be a bigger surprise in store. Either way, we'll know what all this means in a little more than a week. The press release below has the official details, but for the moment, we'll content ourselves by ogling the 2013 model above.
