Who was the lunatic sticking his head and arm underneath the car I wonder?

What the heck was all that about, if you are going to go down a hill get on with it, some people have too much time on their hands!

There's a difference in being a hillclimber to a hilldecenter.

Downhill in a 4x4 on steep or slippery surfaces used to be low range (if fitted) 1st gear and take your feet off brake,clutch and accelerator allowing the engine braking to hold you back as the vehicle slowly descended

With 4x4's with no low range like the latest Vitara we now have hill descent which is your brake system detecting wheel speed and applying the brakes to control the descent but without locking up the wheels as could happen on slippery surfaces

As usual I don't think that video shows how steep that drop is so being cautious may not have been a bad idea?
