Luxury SUV Range Rover has been available for almost half a century. Of course, on the roads, it’s rare to see the first generation Range Rovers, produced in 1996, but the second generation of these cars are still frequent.
The crossover Range Rover started to be talked about from the second generation in the framework of premium class. A large cabin with an expensive finish and air suspension provide maximum comfort in any road condition. The diesel version used a powerful BMW engine, with this version having the complete set.
Specifics of Land Rover suspension
Land Rover was one of the first companies to use a new type of air suspension in their cars. Prior to that, this solution was applied only in cargo and commercial transport. The new solution provided maximum comfort, because the system adapted to the road conditions.
The air suspension compressor pumps air into air springs depending on the degree of load on them. This solution solves several problems at once:
- Reducing the body roll-off when entering a turn at high speed (air struts on one side become more rigid);
- Improved steerability (air springs protect the body from rocking);
- Adapting to specific conditions;
- Maximum comfort for both passengers and the driver.
Unfortunately, some Land Rover SUVs with this type of suspension are more than twenty years old! During this time, airbags and other elements have changed repeatedly. The poor quality of some roads contributes to rapid breakdown. High quality airbags can serve for 70-100 thousand km.
The loss of airtightness of the bellows is the main cause of more serious breakdowns. If the blowout is ignored, the compressor will be subjected to an increased load, and this will quickly put it out of service (you will have to pay for the repair). Therefore, it is not recommendable to use airbags that cannot withstand the set air pressure. Other components of the system may fail, because the air suspension is a complex device.
