By Faiming_low on 29 Oct 2016 in Safety, Videos

Attached Image Toyota's pick up truck, the Hilux has been under fire for not doing well in the Moose test. The test, which basically stimulates a sudden lane change, tests the vehicle's stability when presented with such sudden weight transfer. It also tests the vehicle's electronic stability control ability to keep the vehicle from losing control.

The test, carried out by Teknikens Värld’s, the Hilux threatened to flip as it goes through the test at 60km/h while its competitors went through the test at higher speeds without any problems.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
