THAT'S IT!

That's what I don't like, the rear is misshapen and has been mini-vanned.

I haven't had an accident for longer then that, and this won't be considered one either since it was never reported to them. But the ticket will, oh well it's just money I'll make more in my lifetime.

What were you ticketed for? Here you can get out of most things once every three years by taking a drivers safety class.

Just so you're all aware that picture is a mock up by Car and Driver, not an actual photo of a finished product.

Yeah it definitely looks like a handsome, prize winning dog got out and hooked up with another dog that was ugly as sin.

It looks like a Dodge Durango, hopefully they change their mind on the design and make it look more like a manly SUV instead of a truck and minivan's love child.

Yet another reason why I will keep my handsome, powerful, and very capable Excursions

"Stop for steady red light" although I did stop behind the crosswalk, when I struck him he had the walk sign and I was in the crosswalk. He had the right of way and I didn't. It's not the same ticket as running a red light from the way I read the municipal code.

We have a program here for every year you don't get a ticket you get a +1 point that is only good for the last 12 months (the way it was explained to me), so that cuts one of the 4 points off right away. I can take an online drivers course to knock 2 more points off.

Been using the Ex a lot lately. I retired from the Air Force on Friday and have been busing family members 8 at a time since then. Got it all cleaned up yesterday and then today I am driving to a physical for my new job and an 8 inch piece of re-bar falls off of a trailer 2 cars in front of me, bounces off of the front tire of the vehicle in the next lane and goes airborne towards my windshield.. Just as soon as I thought it was gonna whack it, it curves downwards and smacks the front bumper and makes a tiny dent. That could have been much worse. I have it on dash cam but wont share until I give the company a chance to make it right. Video proof should help.

My niece just finished her basic training in the Air Force and is now stationed in Germany.
