I was referring to the old joke that a cowboy would ride his horse from one side of the street to the other. If that attitude isn't common now then my mistake.Trips? I don't see how those would vary that much between the US and Au.
But it does seem that there are many differences between our cars and yours.
I've never quite understood that.
I do not think that there are that many differences, electric power steering, some differences in the lights and wiring and the ride height. I believe the ground clearance came about because the Australian market had a tax break for imported 4 wheel drive vehicles with a minimum of 200mm clearance.
