The compressor and/or suspension air bags for the electronically controlled air suspension system began to periodically fail to raise the rear portion of the vehicle. The problem continued to occur periodically especially when the temperature fell below 35 degrees which made me suspect whether the system was built to withstand cold temperatures over a period of years. Currently, the compressor and/or suspension air bags does not appear to be engaging consistently. I have heard this problem from Envoy and trailblazer owners as well. Thank you for looking into this problem.

The rear air suspension has a leak in it. It fails to calibrate correctly and has the vehicle sagging. In the winter this is very difficult to drive until it calibrates which can take more than a few minutes. The suspension continues to leak during the drive.

My complaint is regarding the faulty air suspension of a number if GM SUVS. These include the trailblazer, Envoy, and 9-7X (which I own). The air suspension leaks and fails to stay calibrated which results in the vehicle sagging to one side. This is extremely unsafe. While cornering or performing any emergency accident avoidance maneuvers the vehicle feels very dangerous. I can imagine that there have a number of accident that could have been prevented had these vehicle been made safer. GM is aware of the problem and has issued service instructions to their technicians. However, I cannot understand why an investigation has not been launched into this issue. Thank you for your time.
