Overland QL goes to off road 1 by itself

Had experienced twice whilst driving that car lifts to off road 1 by itself. Anyone had this too ?

Re: Overland QL goes to off road 1 by itself

What setting were you in ie sport, auto? I have a problem where mine goes down to level one from three or two when I reach 25mph.

Happened twice to me (only noticed it when the EVIC told me to reduce speed). I could have caught the button by mistake though.

So did yours lower or raise without your control?

That's not a problem, that's a safeguard and normal. OR3 is only designed to be used at low speed otherwise you would roll over on city streets.

It raised the suspension one notch. I used the dial to go out of then into AUTO to drop the suspension back down.

There's a thread on this somewhere. Slight improvement in sport I believe, but not sure whether its attributable to the lowered suspension or gearing.

Re: Overland QL goes to off road 1 by itself

I'd expect economy would deteriorate in sport mode. As the QL gets the GC lower to earth, gravity gets stronger and that would pull your right foot down on the throttle harder.

Very scientific.

I love science. Just a huge voyage of discovery. That explains my weight gain. Nothing to do with what I eat, its just the gravitational effect of my chin(s), gut and arse being closer to the floor.

It has happened to me several times. Sometimes when I start the vehicle I see it happening, other times I have noticed being in OR1 while driving but not seen when it rose up. My dealer says it is normal, part of a self test or calibration I think. Doesn't seem very smart to me but I live with it.
