Mechanical Condition: Engine started, idled and accelerated as expected. Transmission shifted with no issues in forward and reverse while driving at low speeds around lot. No observed knocks or noises. No unusual odors or smoke from engine were noted. Brakes functioned correctly at low speed, no grinding noises audible from interior. Unit was driven into lot for retirement. Vehicle may or may not have a battery.

Exterior: Paint is in overall good condition, no large peeling and no unusual fading. Normal dents, dings and scratches as consistent with vehicle age, mileage and use. No rust through or large surface rust was noted. Decal and sticker remnants may remain on paint. Other small paint flaking and some surface rust may be present. No major damage was noticed on walk around. There may be holes from removal of communication antennas and equipment on roof and trunk lid.


Interior: May need cleaned with possible holes from removal of communication equipment, some may not be noticable. Front seats appear good with no large or visible rips or holes. Interior door panels are loose but inside car.  AM/FM radio works.  A/C was tested to blow cold, heater, wipers and signals all tested ok. Drivers seat adjustment fuctioned as required.

Tires: No weathering was noted on walk around. Tires are in good condition overall.

Miscellaneous / Notes:



This unit is a retired government vehicle and perception of the overall condition of the vehicle should be based on that knowledge.

There may be some holes on exterior and interior where equipment has been removed or where decals/markings have been removed.

All options may not work. Small dents scratches may not appear in pictures. Condition of brakes, steering and suspension are not examined and therefore are unknown. A low speed lot test (If conducted) consists of a visual walk around, attempting to start the unit, driving under 15 MPH for a short period testing the engine and running gear. Brakes are only tested for stopping at low speeds. Cars that start on their own when tested may not start after sale and may need a jump start. Condition of batteries are always unknown.


Vehicle may be picked up at CMS State Surplus Warehouse, 1924 S. 10 ½ Street, Springfield, IL.

Many Illinois State Police vehicles being offered were equipped with an after-market air bag switch. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) approved the State's request to install air-bag switches for certain vehicles owned by the State of Illinois and operated by the Illinois State Police.  The air bag switches remain active due to the safety benefits provided by air bag switches to the vast majority of drivers.

Purchasers of used vehicles sold by the State of Illinois are cautioned, admonished, encouraged and advised to have the air-bag safety unit inspected prior to operation. All Purchasers are further cautioned that they are solely responsible for conforming to the requirements of any applicable and lawful ordinance, rule or statute governing the resale of vehicles purchased from the State of Illinois.

Air Bag Safety Tips

• Find out if the vehicle has been recalled for safety problems. That information is available on The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) Web site:;

• Check the vehicle's crash test results with the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS). The web site is: The IIHS is a nonprofit research and communications group funded by auto insurers. You can also find crash test results and other information on  NHTSA's Web site;

• Check for signs of previous damage, including mold, paint that doesn't match the rest of the vehicle, frayed safety belts, fenders and doors that don't align, silt in the trunk, and uneven tire tread;

• Check the airbag indicator light on the dash board. (It's sometimes marked "SRS" for supplemental restraint system). If the light doesn't come on, it could mean the airbag system isn't working. Car experts say the airbag warning light in most vehicles comes on when you start the car and stays on for a few seconds. If the light stays on longer, there could be a problem with the airbag system.

• Inspect the airbag cover to be sure it's original and not a replacement. Most original covers are marked "SRS" or "S/R".
