I’m experiencing what appears to be an air suspension oscillation at highway speeds. When traveling at 73mph on a smooth concrete surface highway, the suspension rocks side to side every 2-3 seconds. It is subtle but noticeable. The steering wheel and vehicle direction stay stable. The road is not inducing the oscillation - cars around me are showing no suspension movement. Has anyone had a similar experience?

One other observation. When parked and the suspension height is switched from low to high, the rear end goes up first, followed a second or so later by the front end. Does your car with adjustable air suspension behave similarly?

Only after I go over a small bump at highway speed, it seems air suspension is trying to adjust itself. The second issue is normal. That's how it worked on all my cars with air suspensions.

Mine does this too, from day one! Some days (or freeways) are worse. According to my dealer this is "normal" and nothing can be done. I noticed it the day I took delivery, once I entered and accelerated onto the freeway (highway/motor way). Some days it is very prominent.

Some days my air suspension adjusts when parked in the garage, and sometimes not. I used to make fun of Bavarian technology in our BMWs, but it seems there are remnants of Dr. Lucas too in our Jags. LOL

I've never felt it. I recall one review mentioning it. Does the have adaptive suspension?

The closest thing I've seen is the car bounces around a big more at low speed on bumpy roads compared to other SUVs.

My I-Pace FE doesn’t exhibit the oscillating characteristic at any speed. I normally travel 65 - 85 on the highways and the FE is perfectly smooth and stable.

I will say that this oscillation does not happen every time, but I have experienced it on several occasions. Usually my I-Pace is very solid and stable on the highway. Speed can almost not be felt :-O

For the first issue - I have noticed this on certain roads - Concrete with grooves. I believe the grooves align with tire grooves and try and track with it. There are quite a few discussions on this online.
On the second point - this is by design - it requires a smaller compressor and electrical load if you do rear then front.
