The leather dash is optional on the X5. We don't have it on our 2012 x5 diesel. The x5 and the grand Cherokee are two different beasts and it's unclear what your are getting at. The WK was a fine...

Re: How's reliability if without Air Suspension? (Just checked truedelta.com)

Re: intermittent rub / moan upon accelerating from a stop or <5mph

Did Jeep ever send out a memo that the noise was normal? The dealer told me Jeep was going to be releasing a statement.

Anyone actually have this resolved? I'm curious.
