Re: suspension

I think there were some compressor over heating problems on a few of the 2011s. That would have been fixed years ago there is a TSB for it I think?

FWIW never any problems on my 2014 and 10k miles or so!

Re: suspension

I have a '14 Overland with 10,000 miles, been getting a "Service Air Suspension" message occasionally (maybe past 1,000 miles).

Seems sporadic as to when it comes on. Dealer and myself both agree that it is likely and electrical issue or loose connection that prevents the center console buttons from communicating with the suspension (the indicator lights on the buttons won't light up). I can't raise or lower it, it just defaults to normal ride height, according to the dealer.

I've taken it to the dealer once, but it was working fine that day and decided not to leave it as they likely wouldn't be able to diagnose a problem when it's working properly. It will go on and off on the interstate (in and out of aero mode).

Kind of an odd issue, but not a big deal since it would appear I'm not doing any damage by not getting it fixed right away. Just need the free time to take it in and the error to coincide.

Definitely no major issues so far.

Re: suspension

12k on mine, no issues (knock on wood). In general QL seems to be pretty good, major issues on here seem few and far inbetween.

I personally love it. Between being able to drop it for graceful exit in the city, raise it up to clear a plowed in driveway, and load leveling when towing or packed up, it really covers it all (and all those are real world uses for me).

Re: suspension

I had the service air suspension message it took 5 dealer visits and 3 weeks of my time in a POS Compass to find out it was a bad air compressor. They changed that problem has been gone since
