This has been my truck since 2000 when I purchased it new here in NJ. It has served me well, I hauled my carpentry tools in it back and forth from the Princeton area to Staten Island. I needed a van for more tool storage which is why I'm selling it. This PU truck has never been driven by anyone else but me and I treated it kindly. It has never been in any kind of an accident nor has it seen a flood. It is very clean inside and out. You can still see a shadow of my business logo on the drivers and passenger door. If you are applying a logo or partial wrap to the door you will no longer see it. The engine runs perfectly with no leaks or hesitation. Its strong and steady. I have a heavy duty 2" hitch on the truck and the hookups for your trailer lights. I primarily used the hitch for a T like bed extender to carry very long lumber, never pulled anything heavy with the truck. 4 wheel drive works great and is operated by a knob on the dashboard. Its electronic and fully automatic. The interior is free of any tears or defects. The carpets have been protected by tub type heavy duty mats that hold quarts of water. The mats are fitted for this truck and are easily removed or changed the carpet underneath is like new. Radio sounds great. No mechanical noises coming from the truck that shouldn't be there accept a rattle from a loose heat shield. The bed is lined with a tough liner and there is a nice roll away cover from TruXcedo that uses industrial hook and loop closer. Breaks are recently (12mo) changed.
Here are the defects:
- It has small scratches and minor dings as you would expect from a vehicle born in 2000. The body is in great condition other wise.
- The tires are road worthy and have good tread but have some surface tears in side wall.
- One of the rear tires has a slow leak
- When the tail gate is lowered there is a horizontal metal strip which has rusted through in two spots. This doesn't seem to affect anything. Tail gate and bed works without issue.
- The A/C is ice cold but works only on the high fan speeds.
- The power door locks unlock the drivers side not the passenger side. They lock both doors.

Consumer Reports has released its Annual Auto Reliability Survey and the results are, in a word, interesting. While we already covered the score-damaging effects of infotainment systems, there's another big angle to the data that's getting some attention - the utterly dismal scores of the Detroit Three's small car offerings.

The turbocharged Dodge Dart and Chevrolet Cruze, as well as the Ford Fiesta were their respective brands' lowest-scoring models, a stat that's made worse by the fact that the American automakers finished 25th, 21st and 23rd, respectively.
That's not acceptable for The Detroit Free Press' auto critic, Mark Phelan, who has penned a scathing critique of the D3's small car reliability scores, arguing that GM, Ford and Chrysler are "out of excuses."
Thanks to the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat there is a new magic number in the muscle car world - 707. To raise eyebrows these days in the power war, a vehicle needs to match or preferably exceed that palindromic figure. The tuners over at Hennessey took a look at it for their 2015 HPE700 Mustang and decided to go one better. Well, ten actually, because they bestowed their latest creation with 717 horsepower and 632 pound-feet of torque.

The HPE 700 Mustang takes the standard Mustang GT with its 5.0-liter V8 and turns up the power a few hundred notches with a Roots-type supercharger running at 7.25 psi. Hennessey claims that this boosted 'Stang can rocket to 60 miles per hour in about 3.6 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 131 mph. For those keeping score at home, those figures are very similar to Challenger Hellcat.
To cope with all of the added boost, the engine gets a high-flow throttle body, upgraded injectors, new fuel pump, stainless steel exhaust and Hennessey's calibration for the engine management. Pricing for the package is $59,500, including the base 2015 Mustang GT, but the company is limiting production to 500 units for the 2015 model year. Founder John Hennessey told Autoblog that he has already received about a dozen orders for them.
It'd be unwise to bet against the sixth generation of this legendary nameplate.
The 2015 Ford Mustang is assuredly the most anticipated new vehicle of the year. The redesigned Pony Car has been the subject of frantic gossiping and covert spy photos covering everything from the way it looks to the tech it will include, its performance, mechanicals and a bevy of other aspects of Ford's performance icon.
