I think part of the problem is that its on run flat tyres which have really hard sidewalls .. just what you dont want the wifes Mitsi Outlander on the other hand is a real peach that thing has really surprised me just how far it goes and wont give up, and its only on standard road tyres too if you fitted it with some Bronco grizzly claws .. it would be unstoppable
