I've had my 2.5 AWD GV80 Prestige for less than two weeks and have already discovered it ain't no G90. Very harsh ride, tight seating, and extremely confusing infotainment/navigation system. Wish I would have just bought the G90 after the lease expired.

Welcome to the forum @DannyBoy. Sorry to hear about your issues. Which wheel size do you have? Maybe that has something to do with the ride quality.

Check your tire inflation. They are typically over inflated from the factory and few dealers correct it during the PDI process. . A few too many PSI can destroy ride comfort. The sticker on the drivers door jam will recommend the proper pressure. I have the 22"ers and they were all at least 4-5 psi over inflated. Very smooth ride now.

I will check that out. Actually, just yesterday I had a pressure warning for the left rear tire and noticed that the front tires were way below the recommended pressure and the rear tires were way above. Thanks.

Any updates since checking the tire pressure? Has it helped at all?

Not really. I guess I was expecting a smoother ride with the road noise damping system, but I later learned that option didn't come with my 2.5 AWD Prestige. I would have sprung for the 3.5 if my salesman had explained all the bells and whistles I would be missing with the 2.5.

Is it something where you'd consider switching to a 3.5 model?

I have ben driving a 2.5 loaner for the last couple days and maybe my imagination but find the ride is harsher than my 3.5 Prestige. On the positive side, I dont find the 2.5 engine lacking at all

Hmmm. A website article I just read agrees with you. But according to my salesman and my personal experience with a very rough ride, my car does not have the controlled suspension system.

I checked a few "stickers" from GV inventories and I do see it on the 2.5 prestige package.....Just curious..I went from a 2018 VW Atlas SEL Premium to my 2.5 prestige...theres no comparison with the ride, and Atlas is based off Audi Q7 platform....What were you driving that was so much smoother?

A 2018 G90, and it was a great car. I really wish I would have bought it when the lease expired. Heck, it only had about 25K miles on it. I don't want to say that I have buyer's remorse on the 2.5 AWD Prestige, but I do wish I would have splurged and picked up the 3.5 Prestige. I miss all the toys. I'm still trying to figure out the electronically controlled suspension. Do you have to manually turn it on and off, or is it always on? Forgive me if I'm not making sense. I'm recovering from knee replacement surgery this afternoon, and still too loopy from the morphine to go through the three-pound manual!
