Embarrassing - Lexus GX SUV Can`t Handle Deep Ice Grooves in Town [Video]
Take a look at this video, from Russia. You will notice that deep grooves have been created in the reasonably-deep ice, which covers the top of the road. Also, one lane is blocked and cars are forced to pass through the gap one at a time - this causes problems.
First to pass is front-wheel drive MPV (probably a Hyundai Matrix), which manages to get out of the deep grooves, after two attempts. Next up is a Lexus GX Land Cruiser-based SUV, which is, for all intents and purposes stuck in the grooves.
It is preposterous that a large SUV, which is touted as being one of the most capable in the world cannot get out of some ice grooves. Even without all-wheel drive engaged, it should have had no problem, and yet it is unable to do so, and the driver of the car with the dash-mounted camera is forced to go around.
What an embarrassing situation for the Lexus GX, even in two-wheel drive mode and with bad tires, there`s still no excuse, really.
