Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

Here is what it says:

• Auto Entry/Exit Suspension
When this feature is selected, the vehicle lowers the suspension
for easy entry/exit. Touch the box next to your
selection and a check-mark appears next to the feature
showing the system has been activated or the check-mark
is removed showing the system has been deactivated.

Not clear to me what triggers lowering the suspension.

Tom

Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

Probably reaching a low speed. I think even if you press the button to lower to park mode, it only starts working under 15 mph.

Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

That would be ideal if it knew you were going to park. Otherwise, the car would lower at every stop light and yield sign. Waiting until the car is shifted to Park would be a long wait since the engine must be running and all doors closed for the car to lower.

Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

The manual says that you can push the button under 25 mph, but the car won't start lowering until 15 mph.

Good point! Maybe we need to open the driver's door at each stop sign.

Very true. I've had to use it in some underground parking lots.

Good callout on the ability to upgrade the warranty if needed. I specifically asked about that as I went with the 70k as well as I generally dont drive more than 8k a year...but a lot can change in 7 yrs.

10 years ago, I'd have agreed.

But, with todays cars (even the cheap ones) have SO many electronics in them, all it takes is one little thing and BAM.. a couple grand down the tube.

I'll be opting for the Lifetime MaxCar on my rig. I plan on keeping it for a good long while though. Other folks that churn and burn every 3-5 years, it may not make sense to get the exended warranties.

Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

So, maybe I am the outlier, but QL is the reason Chrysler ultimately bought my vehicle (2012 v8 4x4 overland) back after @6 months of ownership (to be fair, i had other problems beginning before it hit 500 miles so perhaps i was unlucky). Do a search for my posts last year but essentially QL leaked, they couldn't figure out why, and after 30 days, started the buy back process. There was another vehicle with a different QL problem at my dealership that was also returned. Conceptional, I loved the idea of QL, and when it worked, on pavement it was great. Off pavement, not a fan. Off road the setting were too harsh, the shock's constantly topped out...obviously even more so when in the second setting. Perhaps they have improved the 2013 model.

I might have bought another wk2 if I could have gotten a coil v8 with QDII, but unlike 2011, when I last looked, you now have to match it with QL. I took my money elsewhere, which is too bad as I am still a big fan of the WK2, but not QL....

As to extended warranties, I typically think they are a waste, but I tend to agree with others that point out the cost of repair and parts of modern vehicles, it might not be a bad idea, especially if you really take advantage of it.

Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

Bromhead is not the only outlier, my 2011 also succumbed to terminal QL issues. No leaks in my case, but the control systems would not shutoff the compressor. Last I heard it was also back in the hands of Chrysler. I considered picking up one of the extended warranties, but suffered a few key failures during trips, as well as lots of time in the dealerships. Note most of my issues started after 20k miles. By 35k miles they were getting very frequent, started with system cooling down messages, unable to lift to OR1 or OR2.

I had good dealerships working on the issue, but the knowledge base is not very deep for the system, and the best warranty in the world is no good if it cannot be fixed! I chose to go with a non QL vehicle, and am very happy, but miss some of the nicer trim features.

Re: Quadra-Lift Reliability

As a follow up, I picked up my Jeep this morning after spending a WEEK at the dealership for QL failure. Apparently no leaks were found and so they did not repair anything. As soon as I started it, all the lights from the up/down buttons were flashing and the EVIC said: "Immediately Air Suspension/Repair Required".

I just drove off and plan to try another dealer.
