I am more concerned about family and friends who drive these vehicles.
I have driven a Fortuner and has spent some time in one. It is a good vehicle!
The D4D engine is a gem too!
It still seems that the instability problem only occurs in some examples, others are fine!
I don't think it is driver error, because instances have been reported by drivers who drive / have driven many other bakkies and/or SUVs.
Here is an example of an unexpected Fortuner roll-over. The driver was using his boss' Fortuner, because his Touareg was in for service/repairs:
Yip the 'Tuna came off second best here.
I was just cruising along at 120 on the cruise control and hit like a puddle of water running across the road and the rear end came out, and roly poly i went.
I tried to avoid it but there was nothing to be done. Twice I thought I got it under control but then it just went again.
I am fine not a scratch or nothing. I held onto the steering wheel when I felt the rear hit the dip closed my eyes and held on with all I had. Opened my eyes and my face was half in the water. If was knocked out I could have drowned. Only the bloody curtain air bag on my side came out. nothing else deployed.
