The La Grange, Illinois (Cook County) Police Department is offering the following vehicle for sale by auction:

2009 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Sedan 4-Door 4.6L with a mileage of 103,860 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, NO returns will be accepted, and NO price adjustments will be 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!  If the vehicle does not sell, it will either be relisted or go to a public auction.

Again, the vehicle has 103,860 original miles.  The vehicle has no major damage or rust-just normal wear-n-tear scratches, dings, dents-again, 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 until key is in ignition again), rear defrost, dome light, interior lights, and spotlight ALL IN GOOD WORKING ORDER.  The vehicle also has manual tilt steering wheel, power adjustable gas pedal, AM/FM stereo, and air conditioning is in good working order.  The vehicle is equipped with cruise control, however, we did not use it often and don't know if it still works (probably works).  The vehicle has driver's-side and passenger-side air bags.  The vehicle's exterior lights, lamps, signals, wipers, defrost, spotlight, etc. are all in working order.  There are no illuminated warning signs on in the dashboard indicating any malfunctions with the vehicle.  Lastly, the vehicle's tires are in good condition.

The vehicle shows normal wear-n-tear regarding scratches, dings, dents, however, again, there are NO major imperfections in the vehicle's body.  The exterior of the vehicles roof does have three holes that were drilled for a police light bar that was removed that are currently covered with gray tape.  The holes will need to be plugged by the winning bidder (available from an auto parts store).  The police decals have all been professionally removed from the exterior, however, glue is slightly visible.  A good detailing of the vehicle should eliminate the glue marks from the decals.  The interior roof liner has a small hole between the driver and passenger seats that once housed a police camera-now removed.  There is one tiny hole in the interior roof liner behind the dome light, barely visible.  The rear vinyl seat is brand new-never used.  When the vehicle was used as a police car, we had plastic seats in the rear and stored the vinyl seats-now placed back in the car.  The front cloth seats are in good condition but will need to be cleaned.  The vinyl flooring in the vehicle is in good condition, but will also need to be cleaned.  The following reflects the service record on the vehicle for "more major items:"

Lexus gets top brand marks from Consumer Reports; Ford, Jeep hit hard

Tue, 25 Feb 2014

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.

Detroit automakers mulling helping DIA avoid bankruptcy looting

Tue, 13 May 2014

It's not really a secret that the city of Detroit is in lots and lots of trouble. Even with an emergency manager working to guide it through bankruptcy, a number of the city's institutions remain in very serious danger. One of the most notable is the Detroit Institute of Arts, a 658,000-square-foot behemoth of art that counts works from Van Gogh, Picasso, Gauguin and Rembrandt (not to mention a version of Rodin's iconic "The Thinker," shown above) as part of its permanent collection.
Throughout the bankruptcy, the DIA has been under threat, with art enthusiasts, historians and fans of the museum concerned that its expansive collection - valued between $454 and $867 million by Christie's - could be sold by the city to help square its $18.5-billion debt.
Now, though, Detroit's hometown automakers could be set to step up and help save the renowned museum. According to a report from The Detroit News, the charitable arms of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler could be set to donate $25 million as part of a DIA-initiated campaign, called the "grand bargain." As part of the deal, the DIA would seek $100 million in corporate donations as part of a larger attempt at putting together an $816-million package that would be paid to city pension funds over 20 years. Such a move would protect the city's art collection from being sold off.

Ford recalling 126,000 Fusions and Milans over wheel separation concern

Fri, 09 Dec 2011

Ford has announced a recall of certain Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 128,616 2010 and 2011 models equipped with steel wheels may have been manufactured with wheel studs that could crack and split over time. If that happens, the vehicle may experience a wheel separation.
According to The Detroit News, the company is aware of a total of 30 wheel separation incidents, one of which occurred on the front of the vehicle. Even so, no injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
The problem apparently stems from the fact that the mounting pads on the vehicles' steel wheels may have been faulty from the factory. In addition, the wheel mounting face on rear disc brakes may not have been installed properly. Ford will inspect the rear disc face and replace them as necessary. In addition, the company will replace all of the vehicle's wheel studs free of charge. Head to the NHTSA website for more information, and click past the jump to view the full recall notice.
