I've heard of a pilot crashing an airplane whilst trying to reach for a pen that fell on the floor... I've also heard of one that crashed whilst trying to take a picture of his own house...
It's easy to let yourself get distracted whilst in control of any vehicle, but people have to remember that they need all of their senses to drive, regardless of how bored they might be.

I must say its a pretty bad *** car.

We were buying used and all the edges we looked at were pretty basic models, I wanted something a with a little more options. We looked at a ecoboost fusion too, that thing was pretty sweet.

Yeah they were trying to get rid of all the '13s, this one is an SEL and I got them $10,000 down from sticker. We couldn't find a used one for that kinda price. I must say DAMN this things got everything. I gotta say the technology from my 08 to this is crazy! Everything is touch on the dash and the gauge information cluster has more screens and whatnot.

It is crazy, this one is the same, so much more advanced then my truck was. Haha it's so hard getting used to not having to take the keys out of my pocket. Just touch the handle and it unlocks the doors, push a button and it starts. Nuts. My wife will never understand half of it. She's not to technically inclined.

I never even thought of that, that keyless system is gonna mess with my mom like no other in her new escape lol. To say she's not technically inclined is an understatement...

@madeSICC That is nice. Look good too. Glad you got another vehicle for you and your family. Enjoy. Are you going to still hang out on the forum?

LOL at both of these comments about not being technically inclined. Now it's time for y'all to teach them a little something. Give a tutorial of all the features of the vehicle and stuff and show them what to do...LOL

Yeah she let me drive it yesterday, that thing is awesome. Best part is we don't have to take the truck everywhere now for me to be comfortable. 6'3" 215 didn't fit in the Accord real well.
