Airmatic 101: What You Need to Know

One of the features that make your Mercedes-Benz so comfortable and innovative is the Airmatic system. As one of the first of its kind at its inception, the air suspension cushions you from the jolts you encounter along the road. As great as it is, however, this kind of suspension system is susceptible to failure. That’s because time and wear can lead to cracking or breaches that allow air to escape. Further, road debris can cause similar punctures. When the system is losing air, the compressor will have to work harder in an effort to keep up. When it cannot meet the demand any longer (due to the severity of the leak), you’ll experience problems. There may be a warning light on your dashboard. Also, if the air struts lack sufficient air, you may feel the car sitting lower or sideways. If the automobile doesn’t lift at all, the compressor may be bad. Sometimes, a loud noise followed by a drooping ride will point to compressor failure, as well. A blown fuse can also lead to a bumpy ride because suspension components lack the power to inflate.
