    Currently, my pathetic company has a few Ford Focuses (one of them being mine), Chevrolet Cavaliers (2003, not th enicer new ones), a Kia Rio that they feel they can keep fixing each week when it dies, and three Toyota Echos. Yes, Echos.

    Our fancy contracts get Subaru Forresters.
    I thought I had it bad we have a Nissan Sentra

    2007 Dodge Charger, unmarked but with all the bells & whistles (not shared - take home car). Also use Jeep Cherokees for rougher/construction areas where more ground clearance is needed (Chargers dont look good wearing mud). Will try to get a better photo of it or one of the marked units.
    GREAT car, great agency, great image

    Yea. I guess. But after a while. Those bills to buy repellent, anti-sting, alcohol, neosporan for other insect bites, (heating pad for you back after sitting in that damn chair), peroxide, bug lanterns and fly swatters gets old. Not to mention a space heater, extension cords, rain gear, padding for a shaky lawn chair, shelfing sets, new casters for the podium, using you own POV (gas, oil, insurance liability, etc.) a large piece of paneling for wind protection gets expensive. The pay is OK for what it is at the moment. Sure I could use a raise. But at the moment an office or shack like place sure would help.

    I would agree with you there. As much of a die-hard Mopar man as I am, I've heard almost nothing but bad things about the Nitros...

    And SecurityAussieStyle, do my eyes deceive me, or do I see another security agency using Hyundais?! Apparently my boss isn't alone in his flights of fancy... Course, we're using sedans & SUVs, not the little hatchbacks, but still...

    When I worked for Vector we had 4 foor Chevy Trackers. Small SUV, but (surprisingly) reliable. Wackenhut, Jeep Liberty, that we never had as it was always in the shop. We did have a DOdge Charger as a rental from enterprise, wassn't very impressed. Allied, we used client vehicles. Started out with Two Ford Escapes, not bad but not great, a bit more reliable than the Liberty. On Occassion we would have a truck from enterprise when a patrol vehicle was in the shop. About a couple of years ago an officer totaled one of the Escapes traveling on a power line road. We ended up getting a new Dodge SUV, which make completely escapes me now...I'll post pics later.

    Optical illusion I think, the view is through the steering wheel, the clip is on the console I think.

    Do my eyes deceive me, or is your mike clipped to the steering wheel? How does that work?

    Your logo looks similar to that of a medical services provider...

    Here's one of our Patrol Cars, a current model Hyundai Getz, nowhere near as impressive as some of the vehicles in the post but effecient and effective.
