What a POS. It must have snapped the steering linkage. That was funny though.

People dont really thing they cost 100k do they?

They arent really any more suited to rough use than a suburban - since they are basically the same thing.

Maybe the driver was already taxing the the front end by cranking on the PS - I'm sure that the PS on the H2 is plenty strong enough to snap the linkages if misused.

I would go as far to say they are worse! They are Subrbans with 35" tires, so everything that was designed for a 31" tire for mostly to all on road use is now stressed even more.
