Off-road precautions
Off-road vehicle feature
Specific design characteristics give it a higher center of gravity
than ordinary passenger cars. This vehicle design feature causes
this type of vehicle to be more likely to rollover. And, it has a signifi-
cantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles.
An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the
road allowing you to anticipate problems.
It is not designed for cornering at the same speeds as ordinary
passenger cars any more than low-slung sports cars are designed
to perform satisfactorily under off-road conditions. Therefore, sharp
turns at excessive speeds may cause rollover. 
This vehicle has higher ground clearance and narrower tread in rela-
tion to the height of its center of gravity to make it capable of per-
forming in a wide variety of off-road applications.
