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 making your purchasing decision.

An 'independent front suspension' system, is when one front wheel of a vehicle hits a bump
or pothole, it will move up or down to compensate while the other wheel remains steady.
Both wheels are independent of each other, and hence the expression.

Watch the attached video, a German commercial for the Nissan
Pathfinder, to find out exactly how this works. 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.
