Jeep Grand Cherokee passes “Moose Test” in Germany

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 30, 2012

Chrysler and Swedish magazine Teknikens Varld have been bickering over an issue related to a new moose test. The automaker has come out with a press release that the test came through without any problems. It also provided details about this test. The arguing began July 9 when the magazine implied that the SUV was a rollover hazard that may actually be fatal.

The argument has been centered on the validity of the test. By the end of the week, Consumer Reports figured in the matter, explaining that the 2011 model it had tested had shown similar but less severe symptoms that were reported to Chrysler and repaired. The same test was conducted by German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, which didn’t find any fault with the Jeep.

In this statement, Chrysler said that the publication conducted the test under maximum passenger capacity with a full load.

It’s hard to say if the conditions were the same between the two magazines. However, the fact that Chrysler didn’t do the test makes it more credible. It’s unfortunate that the test wasn’t conducted on camera, giving plenty of weight to the Teknikens Varld reports.
