The back of the car CONSTANTLY rocks up and down and up and down and up and down on almost all roads in Islamabad. The car is very uncomfortable. The suspension simply fails to damp the up and down movements.
Exactly. This is what I have experienced. It also rocks sideways. It is almost impossible to drink water in the car without spilling it on yourself.
Rollas ride is fine,... it's the roads in this country which neet to be addressed
I agree that Pakistani roads are not car-friendly. Speed breakers are car-breakers and conditions have gone worse after the rains. But still, smaller bumps and pot-holes should not rock the whole car.
I had a ride in the new shape 2.0D. This car does not have this problem with the suspension failing to damp the movements. However, the car's ride is rough and grainy, but not jumpy.
May be the 2 liter Diesal engine is heavier and keeps the car steady.
