If you are considering a Nissan Pathfinder or any other car with an
'independent front suspension', this little commercial should prove to
be helpful in understanding the concept before making your purchasing
An 'independent front suspension' system, is when one front wheel of a
vehicle hits a bump or pothole, will move up or down to compensate
while the other wheel remains steady. Both wheels are independent of
each other, hence the expression.
Watch the attached video all the way to the end. It is a German
commercial for the Nissan Pathfinder. This gives a moving experience
which should benefit your understanding of this piece of engineering.
It's arguably the best explanation I've ever seen.
P.S. The Germans obviously have much better ads than we do.
