2000 Ford ExplorerIn 2001 Civiltec purchased a Ford Explorer for our planning technician, Sara Canche. Since then Sara has put over 170,000 company miles on the vehicle.

After a recent (minor) fender bender, the insurance company declared that the much loved old car would cost more to fix than to replace. And so, it is with mixed feelings that we announce that Sara has been outfitted with a 2013 Mazda Touring Hatchback.

We will miss the our old Explorer, but given how much Sara drives on our behalf, the Mazda’s 40mpg rating is very exciting. US News ranked the car #1 in affordable small cars.

Keep an eye out for it around town.
