2016 3.6R Limited
Video was posted yesterday (12/3/2012). Never realized it was that bad. Guess I don't reverse that often.
My 2010 CVT will back over that also heck it will back my 1700lb boat trailer over that.I believe there is something wrong with that particular car. I can wedge my '12 up against a 4"x4" and pop up over it easily. Reverse is much taller that I would like, but it works OK.
Please give me a real world situation where this would be a problem. You only need minimal rolling momentum. You actually have to try hard to replicate the situation where it will stall and not move. I'm sure there are other cars that would act the same, it's just such an odd set of circumstances that 99% of people will never encounter it in day to day driving.I tried this with my '13 2.5 CVT OB. No problem backing over a 6 inch curb with no rolling start.
I don't know if this is model specific or car specific, but I would not be happy if my OB couldn't do this. Part of the reason you buy an OB is to have a car that can handle unusual terrain situations better than most other cars. An OB that can't back over a 4-inch obstacle without a rolling start has a limitation that even a low-end Kia doesn't have.
My outcome was pretty much exactly as you stated but....I tried this out this morning by backing my 2013 up to a 4" curb and it does the same thing.
It will sit there and rev if I put the wheels up against the curb and then try to back up over it. If I have any sort of a moving start, or hit the curb at a slight angle, it will pop right over the curb.
