I actually took a tape measure to work one day and measured how high off the ground the bottom step is on different type Package Cars. The new P7s are 14 inches, a P5 is 17 inches, and the P8 and P10s are 20 inches off the ground. While a couple of inches might not seem to be much, when you step off and on over a hundred times a day, it does wear out knees and feet over a period of time. I think all the P8s should have been scrapped years ago. I have seen a lot of injuries from these things over the years. The newer cars do seem to designed better, with lower ground clearence, power steering and brakes, and automatic transmissions.
Douglas Brown,you must be a lawyer.
Us drivers all know that the P-8 is hard on the knees.
Are you representing a driver?
Exacerbate would be an appropriate term to use in court.
But profanity is not condoned here in the brown cafe`.
