http://easylink.playstream.com/hittv/carr_test.rm Also same test (?) perform by mitsu can be seen here. This appears to be mitsu's own test from 2000:
If these won't play directly, do a right click "save target as" to your desktop (or where ever), start "Real Player" and drag into Player. Realplayer will then connect to the source video.A comment on another board was made that the results of the test depend more upon the driver of the vehicle than upon the vehicle itself (?)
Since neither of these tests have outriggers attached to the vehicle, are they a key to the CU rollovers?
Are these vehicles Limiteds or XLT's without rear LSD?
What is the effect of rear LSD? Seems to me that once you lose traction on the lifting rear wheel, the LSD on the inside wheel could force the vehicle over (??)
However, for offroad use you deffinitely want LSD or a locking rear differential. Maybe for on-road you don't?? Maybe this is why Mitsu, does not offer the push button locker option in the U. S. of A as shown in the book in your glove compartment.
Punch in "11714" as the zip code for search...then type in 2001 in search dates...Mitsubishi in "make" field...then "Montero"...I also have 3 other different vehicle pictures of our beloved "no rollover issue" Monty,s...Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I am thankful to CU for bringing up this issue that now I know of my truck's own weakness. I will be more extra careful in my driving as I am used to. I like the ride of this SUV and I am not thinking of a trade. This is a good deal with all of its features. I'll just wait and see on Mitsubishi's decision, I hope that they will recall it and do something favorable to the consumer and their company to get people's trust back (change suspension with stiffer ones). It is doubtful though since their is no single incident of rollover.
So, to other Montero owners out there, just relax, take extra caution in steering and see what's going to happen next...
How come these things weren't reported to NHTSA?
