La Grange, Illinois, United States
The La Grange, Illinois (Cook County) Police Department is offering the following fleet vehicle for sale/auction:
2009 Police Interceptor Sedan 4-Door, 4.6L 281Cu. In. V8 FLEX SOHC Naturally Aspirated, mileage: 91,660 miles
This vehicle is surplus property of the Village Of La Grange and MUST be sold according to Illinois law; it MUST be sold in an auction-type setting such as eBay. There is NO Buy-It-Now option. We will NOT accept any trades for this vehicle. The vehicle is being sold AS IS and with NO existing warranty; neither express nor implied. All sales are FINAL and NO returns will be accepted and price adjustments given. The vehicle will be sold to the highest bidder after the starting price has been satisfied. There is NO reserve on this vehicle-the starting price is BOTTOM LINE what we will accept for this vehicle-DO NOT MAKE AN OFFER!
Again, this vehicle has 91,660 original miles. The vehicle has no notable body damage or rust-just normal wear-n-tear scratches, dings, and dents-nothing major! The vehicle has power locks, windows, mirrors, trunk release, power driver's seat lumbar/recline, power cut-off switch (push switch and remove ignition key and car will stay on, however, car cannot be placed in drive and stolen), rear defrost, dome light, interior lights, and spotlight ALL IN GOOD FUNCTIONING CONDITION. The vehicle also has manual tilt steering wheel, power adjustable gas pedal, AM/FM stereo, and air conditioning all in good working order. The vehicle is equipped with cruise control, however, we did not use it often, so we do not know if it works (probably works). The vehicle has driver's seat and passenger-seat air bags. Lastly, the vehicle's exterior lights, lamps, signals, wipers, defrost, etc. are all in working order. There are NO illuminated warning lights on in the dash indicating any malfunctions with the vehicle. Lastly, the vehicle's tires are in good condition (they were replaced 072013 and in good condition).
The vehicle shows normal wear-n-tear regarding scratches and dings, however, there are NO major imperfections in the vehicle's body. The exterior of the roof has a couple of "plugs" from holes drilled in the roof for the light bar that was attached and removed. The police de3cals were all removed from the exterior, however, glue is very slightly visible. A good detailing should eliminate the glue from the decals left over. The interior roof liner has a smaller hole cut in between the driver and passenger seat, which once housed a police camera system, now removed. The rear removable seat (vinyl) is brand new, however dirty from being in storage-it will need to be wiped off. The front seats are in good condition with no tearing, however, they will need to be cleaned. The interior vinyl flooring is in good condition, however, again, will need a good cleaning. The following reflects the service record on the vehicle for "more major items:"
Radiator replaced on 033111, A/C Condenser replaced on 041811, Blend Door Actuator & Motor Assembly replaced 050911, Cooling Fan Sender, Motor & Fan Assembly replaced 060711, Air Bag Jewel/Warning Lamp, Water Pump Assembly, and Intake Manifold/Thermostat replaced on 062411, Driver's Seat Belt Buckle Assembly replaced 112911, Manifold Intake, Gaskets, Thermostat, and Ignition Wire replaced 021712, Alternator replaced 032912, Tires, Left Inner Tie Rod Ends and Alignment completed 040912, Sway Bar Links replaced 052412, Front/Rear Brakes, Serp Belt, Right Outer Tie Rod, and Alignment completed 100212, Transmission Service/Flush completed 101812, Front Driver's Seat Rebuilt 112912, Trans Assembly, A/C Condenser replaced 042213, Blower Resistor, Air Bag Jewel/Lamp/Breaker, and Instrument Cluster replaced 051313, 4 Tires replaced on 072013, A/C Compressor, Accumulator and A/C Recharge completed 100113, Vehicle Involved In Minor Accident on 030414 (Front Passenger-Side Bumper/Headlight). All Repairs Completed To The Amount Of $1,300.00. On 040114, the vehicle was at the dealer, at which time an electrical issue under the dash was repaired which was "blowing" fuses. The vehicle currently has an oil filter adaptor leak in which the dealer charges approx. $300.00-this repair was NOT made. The vehicle will eventually need brakes replaced-fine for now though. Lastly, we were notified this year of a safety recall on the vehicle for the steering column shaft, which we have not repaired. The paperwork will go to the winning bidder and the repair at the dealership is free.

Oprah Winfrey loves giving away cars. Not only has she given Pontiac G6 sedans and Volkswagen Beetle retro-mobiles to everyone in the audience of her past show, but the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! she gave another car away to one lucky audience member, while yelling her now-famous line: "You get a car!"
Although the acting of Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel was obviously staged for this giveaway, the reaction from the woman in the audience was genuine shock as she found out that she had just won a new Ford Fusion Energi. Congrats!
Not to take away from what Oprah and Jimmy pulled off, but our cynical sides have to wonder if there isn't more than just a little coincidence that this giveaway took place on the same day that Ford announced a fuel economy reduction for the C-Max hybrid. You be the judge... Scroll down to watch the short clip from the episode.
Autonomous cars may still be in their infancy, but more and more big names in the auto industry are diving in head first. Nissan is already making strides with a semi-autonomous Leaf EV and General Motors is planning to offer semi-autonomous tech by 2020. And then there's Google, doing its thing with a fleet of Toyota Prius. Now, Ford is showing off its latest automated effort, a driverless Fusion Hybrid.
Partnering with the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and State Farm Insurance, the project is part of Ford's Blueprint for Mobility, the company's plan for transportation beyond 2025. "The Ford Fusion Hybrid automated vehicle represents a vital step toward our vision for the future of mobility," Chairman Bill Ford said. "We see a future of connected cars that communicate with each other and the world around them to make driving safer, ease traffic congestion and sustain the environment."
The automated Fusion features four LiDAR infrared sensors that scan the road 2.5 million times every second, using a principle similar to the echolocation used by dolphins or bats. Using the infrared light emitted by the LiDAR, the car can draw a picture of everything within 200 feet to create a map of its surroundings. According to Ford, the sensors are able to tell the difference between a paper bag and a small animal from a football field away.
Consumer Reports has released its 2014 Car Brand Report Cards, with Lexus again reigning at the top and doing so with the same industry-topping score of 79 that it registered in last year's Report Cards. This year, the institute credited its lineup for being "usually quiet, comfortable, and fuel-efficient," noting it's the only brand on the list "to achieve an excellent average overall reliability score." The Car Brand Report Cars list is meant to rank the best all-around vehicles based on CR testing and reliability results tallied by subscribers it surveyed. Each brand included must have sufficient test and reliability data for at least three models, a standard which left out 11 marques including Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover and Porsche.
This 2014 Brand Report Cars edition is the first of a new format in which sub-brands have been broken out from their parent brands, with Acura using this year to move up the leaderboard into second place with a score of 75 for its "reliable, well-finished and somewhat sporty models." The top three was rounded out by Audi, climbing from eighth to third by scoring a 74 for "well-crafted interiors, nice handling and good gas mileage." Audi scored highest in the road-test portion, its improved reliability aiding its rise. The top nine was completed by Subaru, Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz.
Ford and Jeep weighed in at the other end of the rankings, Jeep taking the lowest overall score in the road tests and hampered by "a mix of spotty reliability." Ford was sunk by reliability issues with its MyFord Touch infotainment system which consumers found troublesome enough to negate its cars earning "solid test scores" for being "very nice to drive." Perhaps the rumored switch from Microsoft to Blackberry's QNX for the next generation SYNC will help them out. Cadillac's score also took a hit for infotainment reasons after it was the leading US brand last year, the CUE system in the XTS dragging Cadillac to the bottom of all General Motors brands.
