I wont call it 'not easy', a large sedan will be 'almost impossible' even on flat ground.
Not easy sounds like having a high chance of success....hihihi.

Alone...the usual mistake which led to the driver exhausted but still unable to start the car is shortening the push distance when the mental effect of 'i am getting tired' kicks in and he jumped in thinking enough speed is gathered.

Anyway i tried pushing a W124 alone when it broke down....i cant. Called a backup and the backup face was like having the worst sembelit ever. 'terkeluar buasir aku' is the sentence he used to describe the experience.

On another note...i have calculated and i have travelled abt 80km during this MCO.
Most of it in my car.
yeah, it really depends if you had lunch and one needs to weigh well over 70 / 80kgs for this to work as well.
W124 would be pretty heavy, I can't imagine pushing that

If parked in my house then cannot, because car parked at the side, and need to be steered to come out. Already very difficult for two person, one will be quite impossible. VR also pretty heavy and steering is too without power steering.
However did once at Petrol station. Went to refill, suddenly battery dead. Lucky got slightly slope. Turn key on, push , then jump in, engage 3rd and let go clutch.....lol
Then car failed to start but rolled out into the middle of the road :laugh:
