Air Suspension Failure and flat tire...

Recommended Posts

Noticed the Cayenne was leaning to the right, got a warning on the display of an Air Suspension Failure, and now my front right tire is flat. Of course we were going to the beach tomorrow so now we have to take the Dodge Ram. Question: Can an air suspension cause a flat? IE if the suspenion wasnt absorbing shock, could that lead to the tire going flat from too much banging? Would it be reasonable to ask Porsche to replace the tire?

We'll be gone to the beach in NC for a week, but I'll have to bring it in when we get back.

Thanks for any advice!

I had the air suspension fail on my Rover once. I lost all shock absorbtion and the thing was sitting on the rubber bump stops only. I attempted to drive it to the the dealer, but almost got a concussion from hitting my head on the ceiling and decided to have it towed. I don't see how the air suspension could cause a flat tire though.
