I've only done about 1200 Km's so far so nothing has had time to wear out. Is this just how these jeeps handles or should I be concerned and has anyone else experience this.
Yep... There is a hill where I work which curves to the right while going down hill. It has rain water grates along the edge in the middle of the turn. I usually avoid them as the rear end will step out a bit when I hit them.
My previous SUV, a 2003 Murano SE AWD with sport suspension, would do the same thing. So I'm used to it. It's a bit disconcerting when you first feel it but I believe that its normal for the suspension that we have.
I also find that going slow over a speed bump feels like running over something big but if you go over it faster you barely notice it...
