This is a Yank company with their amazing "new" products - new until you see the LRs of course - still looks pretty good in the videos.

Hi there Bigs
With the above you have invited Cod to expound.
Seriously though: unfortunately Jeeps have the worst reputation for reliability in the USA among the major US manufacturers. Seems a bit ironic.
BTW I would say that the condition of the roads in the USA are far worse than the UK. A 1 ft. deep pothole in a major street is not un-common. We also have those "sleeping policeman" bumps everywhere. My friend calls them Schnuzencops.
Happy new year
T.

So have you........

I don't know when you were last in the UK but our roads really are in a shocking state now. There are sections of even main dual carriageways where it is not safe to tow a trailer. Cats eyes have all but vanished on many sections of road and to make matters worse they are now using EU standard tarmac of the kind used in Greece and Spain. This is too slippery for British conditions so they have to have concrete areas approaching junctions and traffic lights etc. Of course what happens if you have to do an emergency stop where there is no concrete???

This is of course excluding the huge number of speed humps on even busy main roads. They differ greatly in size and severity. Of course they seem to be far more important than road surfaces that are turning to loose gravel and also to gritting roads in winter. 4 cyclists were killed in North Wales as a direct result of the lack of gritting and the council just says it will review it's procedures...........
