2005 Mahindra CJ from India
I write for a car mag, Auto India.
I took one of these cars up a mountain that had no road. Believe me, this car can make its own road.
Even at an incline at a 45-degree angle and a heavy payload, the Cj handles like a dream.
But you need time to get used to it. It is inherently unstable while driving, but very predictable in its instability... therefore not beyond a certain realm of control (you need some skill to drive one).
If you want a cushy car, go buy one of those pretentious ‘American’ SUV's.
If you want to go off-road (and I mean the kind of off-road that would snap a land rover like a twig, then look no further.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Only few FEW cars can withstand this kind of punishment.

Actually Mahindra was assembling Jeep parts with a license... And it's not a bad car, though it's quite old... However recent cars of Mahindra, like the XUV500, are similar to new models of the original Jeep. A bit better in looks, but still look similar.
