I think this may have been discussed before but I'm not finding the thread. I've been debating about getting the air vs. coil suspension and was wondering if anyone has any info on the longevity of the air suspension? Maybe from the Roadsters as the the model S hasn't been out long enough to really have a good idea.
One of my main goals with getting a Tesla is lower maintenance costs compared to a regular vehicle. From what little I have read about air suspensions in general they can be a major point of failure for a vehicle.
I plan on keeping the Tesla a minimum of 5 years.
