Aerodynamic mode lowers only 0.5" while park mode lowers 1.5"

Re: Quadralift FAILED

If Aero didn't light up when it kicked in I wouldn't notice the difference. Although a short friend of mine said I shouldn't bother lowering the Jeep for her, it sure made a difference for her when I did.

The car does that automatically for aerodynamics on the xpyway? The park mode needs to be engaged for some passengers like the elderly to have easier access?

Last update. I had to Lemon Law my Overland Summit after 8 Quadralift failures. It couldn't be fixed. It took 6 months from July 8 to today to get this thing settled. Chrysler sat on everything and extended this process unnecessarily and that is a quote from my attorney.

Good luck all, this is my last visit to the forums.

Re: Quadralift FAILED

My 2011 Overland has been in the shop for over a week with a QL issue. The main issue is that the front end collapses to its lowest point over the course of several hours (back end stays up). They re-flashed the chip, tested for leaks in the lines and topped off the nitrogen, which cost me $300. When that didn't work the service manager said that he thought it might be the compressor and he was going to have Chrysler pay to replace it.

They replaced the compressor and the front end sagged again. Chrysler is now telling them to replace all 4 ride height sensors. That should be done by Saturday. Wish me luck.

That blows. My concern here is that this apparently wasn't covered fully by the warranty (assuming you're still under warranty).

Best of luck.

Re: Quadralift FAILED

It has 40k miles, so it's out of warranty. But my dealer set my expectations that the $300 I already spent will be the end of my financial responsibility to get it fixed. I think he's seen enough QL failures that he knows it's the right thing to do to have Chrysler fix it. Plus, I think these guys are all worried about not getting all 10's on their surveys.

Bumper to bumper means everything. If he's paying he's clearly out of warranty but being treated very well by his dealer.

It never ceases to amaze me how some auto manufacturers resist replacing a defective vehicle. I had a similar experience with a lemon law suit against another manufacturer, who I had been a loyal customer of for 20 years. After that experience, I have not patronized that brand, and will not, in the future. So, in my case, they have lost sales on three subsequent vehicles, and whatever I purchase in the future. Short sighted...

Here's the real problem...the consumers out there. Generally speaking, it's awful to be a loyal customer that gets dragged around with an obviously defective vehicle that can't be repaired. Unfortunately there are a LOT of people that abuse the buyback/replacement process, making manufacturers more and more reluctant to do such things. People will claim multiple phantom issues, deliberately sabotage their own vehicles (seen that more than a few times), and so on because they want the next model year, suddenly can't afford the vehicle, etc. it happens a LOT. It happens quite a bit with the year before a model changeover or refresh. It's unfortunate, but pretty rampant and has made the process for those with legitimate issues very difficult.

Re: Quadralift FAILED

Just an update on my Quadralift issues. I think my dealer has had my car for 5 weeks now. Thankfully I insisted on a loaner before I gave it to them so I've got that going for me. They've been back and forth with Chrysler engineers trying to figure out why the vehicle completely slumps in the front after being parked for several hours.

They have now, checked for line leaks, added the air (gas) into the system, replaced the compressor, replaced all 4 ride height sensors and replaced the front right strut. It hasn't fixed the issue. They have now ordered a new air line thinking that the gas must be escaping from the line somewhere. Fingers crossed.

Matt,
Did they finally fixed your air suspension? Mine is currently in the shop for the fourth time in just over a month. Again after replacing two compressors, and the sensors it failed again today. I am curious if they finally got your Jeep fixed.
