I asked him via email why I was getting emails from the same person with different addresses. The Grand Cherokee swallows large impacts well enough, but humps in the road set the chassis into a harsh up-and-down motion that could bring on nausea.

Inconsistent gaps and rough edges were the norm, and the door and lower console panels had the rigidity of a well-used Kleenex tissue. Yes, we were just being our demented selves, but the Syclone could hit 60 mph in 5. The plastic around the gauge cluster was loose on our test car, and many pieces throughout the interior felt ready to pop off.
