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.

The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance has more clout every year and is getting a reputation as Pebble Beach minus the madness. Held in March this year, it celebrated Ducati and the 50-year anniversaries of Lamborghini, the Corvette Sting Ray, Porsche 911 and the Ford GT40.

Justin Lapriore was there, and seemingly everywhere, getting footage of the various wares on display on the lawns and the sand and the runway. The resulting video, Born of a Blue Sky, is a 16-minute survey of some of the finer sights and plenty of engine sounds. Check it out below.
One of the perks of reviewing all manner of cars and trucks is that we're exposed to all the different infotainment systems. Whether Cadillac's CUE, Chrysler's UConnect, BMW's iDrive or MyFord Touch, we sample each and every infotainment system on the market.

Not surprisingly, some are better than others. It seems consumers have come to a similar consensus, with Consumer Reports claiming that Ford and Lincoln, Cadillac and Honda offer the worst user infotainment experiences. Not surprisingly, you won't find much argument among the Autoblog staff.
Take a look below to see just what it is about the latest batch of infotainment systems that grinds CR's gears. After that, scroll down into Comments and let us know if you agree with the mag's views.
Solar energy might not be enough to power a usable electric vehicle on its own, but that doesn't mean it can't lend a helping hand. And that's what Ford has in store for the Consumer Electronics Show opening next week in Las Vegas.
Ford has essentially taken its C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid and fitted it with the latest in solar panel technology developed by SunPower, acting like a magnifying glass to capture as much of the sun's energy as possible. So you get the benefit of an electric vehicle, with the range assurance of a hybrid, without needing to draw from the grid.
Ford estimates that a day of charging in the sunshine will give the C-Max Solar Energi concept the same full charge as the production PHEV, with a total range of 620 miles - 21 of which can be run on electric power alone. Otherwise the vehicle - which remains a concept for the time being - is identical to the existing C-Max Energi. The top-selling model in Ford's growing hybrid and electric vehicle portfolio helps put Ford just behind Toyota among the top seller of hybrids in America. Scope out the images in the gallery above and the video clip and press release below for a closer look.
