Expert:  david craig replied 7 months ago.

the dealership damaged your air suspension. DO NOT let them tell you anything else.

Expert:  david craig replied 7 months ago.

it depends if its safe to drive........when the vehicle is shutoff, does it sag alot from the air suspension leaking....? if so, then i say its not safe

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Nope. It's. Back. Regular that what. Weird because. The car pushed out. A lot of air. And went Bk. To normal height. I drove it. And. Everything. Is fine
Expert:  david craig replied 7 months ago.

Ok. so the leak is probably very small and maintains ride height while operating. if there is a leak and it sags while shutoff, it still needs addressed. its not going to get better until repaired/replaced. please rate my service as its the only way i get credit for my help. thank you so much and have a great day.
