    read in the U.S. consumer reports magazine the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) Road Edge Recovery (RER) tests for rollover propensity by putting vehicles through a handling manuever called a fishhook, a quick left-right turn, at increasing speeds from 35 to 50 mph (56 to 80 kph). This stimulates a driver overcorrecting the vehicle's steering, something that can happen in an emergency.

    here are the vehicles that TIPPED UP in NHTSA'S road edge recovery test:
    chevrolet equinox 4x4 (2005)
    chevrolet equinox 4x2 (2005)
    chevrolet tahoe 4-dr w/sab (2004)
    ford explorer 4dr (2004)
    ford explorer sport trac (2004)
    GMC yukon 4dr (2004)
    mercury mountaineer (2004)
    saturn vue 4dr (2004)
    toyota tacoma double cab (2004)
    toyota tacoma extended cab (2004)
    toyota tacoma regular cab (2004)

    if the vehicle lifts two wheels off the ground it's considered a "tip-up" and testing stops.

    i guess we better slow down on curves, especially when driving AUVs.
