  • Expert Hi,

    Scorpio being a SUV has good suspension to withstand bumpy riding .Still driver has to take precautions to avoid excessive tyre wear due to sudden impacts .

  • hi, actually this is the misconception we have thinking that having an suv can take bad roads. yes, compared to a sedan/saloon , suv's are better off for they have higher ground clearence.but on bad roads,even suv's have suspension problems,lower arms getting bent,rims getting bent & importantly (crutially)tyres having pinch cut or air pockets which when goes un-noticed, have been fatal at high speed.
    so be careful driving on pot holed roads even in a suv.
