Can a 147 handle a bumpy Gravel road.
My 147 has never been of the Bitumen (sealed) road so far, but has handled the rough Australian roads well enough.
Today , whilst travelling along a sealed road I moved to the left of a right turning car and onto the rough gravel edge of the road. Speed was less than 40 kph, but the car felt it was going to self destruct at any moment.
Even the system check (warning) lights in the dash flickered and one stayed on until I switched off the engine .
I am totally surprised, as this is the softest suspensioned car I have driven since 1979.
My initial impression is that there is something seriously wrong with thew way a 147 is set up.
I am definitely worried about taking this car on a corrugated dirt/gravel road after this.
