I had a failure with my Air Suspension. Not with the Air bladders, but with a Front left sensor. Because the Truck could not figure out what it needed to do, it went into protection mode. It was sorta funny to look at -> the truck goes nose down (I called it the Fetal Position). Anyway the dealership said I could drive it with out issues, and I did take it home. But because we have a 2nd vehicle I decided to leave the Truck in the driveway until I could get it back in to be repaired.
I could drive it however. Little more bumpy, due to the front end being down at its lowest point. Not sure I would want to do a lot of driving however.
No major problems in Sub-Zero for me. My only concern is that since this is a sealed system, if an air line or bag does fail, there works be no way to keep the rest of the system operable since it can't draw from the ourside air.
Word to the wise though, if you do go blasting through snow, be sure to cycle the system from high to low so the sensor arms can clean out a travel path before the snow compacts and turns solid.
