The best part of those pictures for me is seeing the car seats in the 3rd row. That's where I put mine and I thought most people are putting the m in 2nd row. Makes no sense to me.

i don't under stand it either i like them in the third row because they can walk through there and buckle them selves. that way when i have more than them the big people can sit in the second row. I also have it set up this way in my Yukon. But the main reason i don't want them in the second row is that i don't want those wrecked by the seats creasing the leather.

That looks like a military base access sticker. All cars registered on a military base will usually have one of these.

Ah. Gotcha. That makes sense. I just didn't want ANYTHING stuck to my Acadia. The dopes at the dealership stuck one of their cheesy stickers on it just after washing it. When I got home, it was still wet and the sticker was on kind of crooked with a crease in it, so I picked at it and it fell right off. YAY! I had forgotten to tell them not to put anything on the truck. When I brought it back for the Protector Package, I made sure to tell them not to put another one on.

that right i cant just have an i.d. card any more you need a vehicle sticker or else even with an i.d. card they will not let you on base. were a marine corps family.

p.s. the garage is reserved for the Mercedes and corvette (until we move) harder to fix them (and more expensive)

rollin thunder,

A bit off topic, but may be of interest. . .

The Air Force is getting rid of decals on vehicles.

I know in Air Combat Command (HQs at Langley AFB, Va) and Air Education and Training Command made "no more decals" effective 1 Jan 07.

As a retired DoD Civilian, I still have them on my vehicles, but when they expire 12-08, they will not be replaced by the Air Force.

One base reported they save $61,000/year in materials and manpower in processing decals.

Rationale was they have not "waved-thru" a car with a DoD decal since 9-11-01 and have checked ID cards every time. The decals have become superfluous.

Security forces personnel and civilian gate guards are testing a new device that will add another layer of safety to getting on base. Guards have been using hand-held scanners to scan military ID cards and state driver’s licenses to ensure their validity.

I would guess the other services will also follow suite.

Rollin Thunder...as far as stickers go: errrr...yut...and all that good trash.

I remember several years back when you could just roll right into Lejeune without having to stop during "rush hour." The main gate would be wide open with a green sign out and you just speed on through!

Ahhh well...Congrats on the car!! Looks awesome!

Lejeune has gotten so strict with security that as of April 2nd, they will no longer let people drive through from Hubert to Sneads Ferry. The people who drive delivery trucks are pretty mad!

i couldn't dare put this on our new acadia but i thought the yukon could have it just fine ( i have already recked the rear end of it with all my anti ford stickers)

but i have a semper Fi on there. got it on all our cars.

all the bases have gotten alot stricter. the person with the id car has to be driving. the car needs the decal you need an id and if the person with the id isn't you you cant drive through the base.

Rollin,
Great choice, I have the same exact car. It really turns heads.
funny you say that i get no more attention then driving a regular 4 door sedan, then in my acadia. Not one person has even looked twice or asked me what it was. Strange and i have only seen one other acadia so they are a preety rare breed here.

They just put out the memo at Wright-Patterson AFB this week that they are no longer issuing base stickers for cars. Therefore, I won't have to add one on my Acadia (should be in next week). I'm pretty happy about that. I'm a bit anal when it comes to putting things on cars that take away from the look of them.
