1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Rolling problems?

I’m looking at buying a 1995 Grand Cherokee, used, and I’m wondering what the statistics are on rolling for this car?

Do you mean rolling over?

It’s an SUV. It is more prone to rolling over than a car, but not more than another SUV.

Check Consumer Reports.

I have an old (92) cherokee (winter beater) and I’m sure I could roll it without trying to hard. They have a fairly high center a gravity and their handling pretty much sucks. If you drive it like a tall truck you will probably keep the correct side down. I only get in trouble if I forget what I’m driving and try to corner too fast. Drive one, you’ll see what I mean.
