Those with QuadraLift in a cold climate

I know the system will automatically adjust to maintain the correct air pressure.

My question is do you notice a big difference in suspension stiffness when the temperature gets cold (single digits or below zero)?

Do the air bags get stiffer when cold or is it about the same as any other vehicle?

Re: Those with QuadraLift in a cold climate

Good question. I do remember reading a review in one of the car mags where the commented on the stiffness of the quadralift system. I think they said something about cold weather affecting it....

I know what you mean
When we get that cold it is a coin toss if vehicles will even start.

Re: Those with QuadraLift in a cold climate

I dont know about the suspension with my QL seems ok so far but the navigation is really starting to piss me off in weather 25 degrees and below. Had to pull the fuse and reset it yesterday.

That's what your warranty is for. My nav was perfect in this morning's 18 degree weather.
