It was loaded according to specs provided by Chrysler. It turned out they were 58 kgs over. Not enough to have any meaning in this.
Tire pressure was also at the recommended level. Even with Chrysler's people attending and trying to optimize the ESP etc it still failed the test.
It's quite apparent that Chrysler/Jeep and it's fans are in damage control mode.
PS: "thetruthaboutcars" article is misleading at best. It pretends that there weren't any problems when it was tested with the Chrysler engineers attending by writing only that "it didn't come up on 2 wheels" and conveniently leaving out the fact that it blew the left front tire everytime it tried to do an emergency manouver that any modern car and SUV should be able to perform without difficulty. I wonder what affiliation those auto "journalists" in your links have with Chrysler...
If Chrysler/Fiat tried to sue the magazine in Sweden they'd be laughed out of court.
