I believe that they don't actually drive them until they rollover, so the theory on the steering defect having anything to do with the rollover rating wouldn't be accurate.zebelkhan said:With my recent eperience, I now know why Murano got a high rollover rating.
My remark really meant to be sarcastic. In fact, I agree with you. It would make sense to use the physical properties of vehicles (size, weight, etc.) and a constant set of parameters (Mechanical condition, road condition, etc.) in a mathematical calculation to arrive at rating conclusions. Given that however, in real life, these results are only good if the constants are the same for all. Here we have another constant being introduced (MO’s steering defect) which is unique only to MO (as far as I know) and it can and it will change the results if there was an actual test.dklanecky1 said:

I believe that the rollover rating is a mathmatetical calculation of the vehicles weight, height, width, length, and center of gravity.
I remember that one well! It was on the cover of a Consumer Reports magazine.senza said:I recall seeing pictures of "roll over tests" many years ago relating to the old Suzuki "jeeps" and their rollover problems. They had 4 wheels mounted well out and up from the road. They created rollover conditions, lifting 2 wheels well off the ground until the other wheels would touch preventing a rollover. This probably was a test related specifically to this vehicle only.
