Re: Have you seen this? Moose test

In my opinion this moose test is less of a big deal than the issue discovered by EuroNCAP late last year in their frontal offset crash test: http://euroncap.com/results/jeep/gra.../2011/460.aspx

Still waiting on word as to whether or not it'll be fixed on 2013s (or was fixed in 2012s) before I bite the bullet.

I think this moose test issue can probably be fairly easily fixed with modification of the ESC software...

Re: Have you seen this? Moose test

i read this whole thread..my own experience

50 mph getting off from rt 80 west to rt 23 north in wayne nj, myself and my wife.
A big fat muskrat runs across the road, like the Michelin commercial with the beaver..lol..It runs across the road then changes direction back to the way it came..my lane
i jam on the brakes, cut the wheel violently changing lanes; the jeep handled it fine.
All four wheels on the ground, no crazy roll, still in control, scary at first but then some nervous laughter..

It's not a sports car, it's a SUV..
Drive it, enjoy it...
