Swedish "Car and Driver" run the Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test AGAIN...same results!
Jeep Grand Cherokee Moose Test Part II
August 2, 2012
Wow...this is not good for Jeep.
So, the back-story is that Teknikens Varld, a Swedish Car Enthusiast Magazine, does an "Elk Test", on every vehicle they review. Unfortunately, the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee they tested, did really poorly.
Jeep got defensive, and started their PR machine up...talking about how it was overloaded, test wasn't done right...it was impossible...and all. I wonder what they are going to say about THIS:

Wow...bad. Really bad. 7 blown tires??? Wheels off the road??!!
Wonder how Jeep is going to respond. In other news today, Jeep evidently raised the price of the Jeep Grand Cherokee by over $5k...and now it's nearly $60k for a fully decked one. Perhaps it's to pay off the PR team they are going to hire, to spin their safety record, lol.
As you know, I'm a huge fan of the Jeep Grand Cherokee...I hope they can pull out of this nose-dive easily, and mostly unscathed!
