Our family had owned a 1993 C------r New Yorker with air suspension and it was great when it worked.
Around the 5 yr mark it developed leaks in the air system and the front end was drooping. Dealer replaced air compressor which was not the problem. Later replaced a line. Year later leak somewhere, drooping again.
Sadly I gave it to my brother in law who was going to have the suspension converted to coils.
Never happened and the car has been sitting for yrs.
As someone who buys a car to use it till it wears out. I do not lease "rent" a car or worry about the resale value. I buy it to own it, use it and like all great tech want as few problems as possible.
As I plan to keep my model X for close to 15 years I do not want to buy a car where the suspension is a wear item. Just a few comments from the blue collar crowd.
