Hi everyone. Has anyone else noticed their suspension has settled down after X amount of driving? I have for sure. When I got mine it was pretty abrupt on some bad road surfaces. But now after near 1500 ks it feels much better and feels like its absorbing the bad stuff rather than hitting it at the start. Still feels like an SUV suspension like my Nissan but when I got this it felt it was hitting the bad stuff harder. I drove the Nissan for 7 years on the same roads so know the areas well. And no I dont for a minute think it's imagined. I am convinced its settled and now feels better than my Nissan did before I traded it. Not hugely but to be honest when I got the Seltos I thought it was worse. Now for sure on the same rough country roads it has settled and feels better.
Anyone else noticed this?

Definitely. Speed bumps and cracks in the road were much more noticeable when I picked mine up compared to now at ~1550mi. I think it just took a bit of “breaking in”. Multi-link suspension is new for me in this class of vehicle - as it is for the entire market.

Hopefully this doesn’t equate to “squishiness” down the road - time will tell
