      I am aware the topic has already been addressed.

      This video is new footage though.

      There's clearly a problem here. Lives are at stake. Hopefully governments will act quickly to get these dangerous things off the roads.

      Don't know about you guys, but I'd be pissed if I had to change a tire every time I changed lanes.

      If that's how you change lanes, I don't want to be on the road with you.

      LOL, lame attempts from the Jeep engineers to make it better. Come on, did you try swerving in it at all before putting it out to the market?

      I, too, really like the way the GC looks, but on the inside the Touareg is miles better. Last year I got to test drive a V8 TDI Touareg. ~€150k car here.

      The V8 TDI is about €22k more than the V6 TDI here before the CO2 based car tax. The final price difference is €47k, so the V8's higher CO2 emissions make it another €25k more expensive.

      Car control like that should be punished with roll over and subsequent death. Manufacturers should not appease these idiots and their lame arbitrary tests.
