Third party test shows 3-5 second page load time. I can only assume they don't use comcast
*all* their US sites show somewhat bad performance.
The first page load time on my comcast linux box is .7 second:
/tmp$ time wget "http://autodejavel.fr/"

So, the site may have lots of crap on it (which isn't loaded on a mobile browser like your iPad3) which slows it to a crawl.
On comcast, my linux box, firefox with noscript blocking all the crap, page loads in about 1.5 seconds. Even allowing scripts it seems to load in under 2 seconds.
