I'm out driving this afternoon. Car is in "normal" mode. All of a sudden a big red fault message pops up on my digital dash (not the ICTP) saying "Adaptive Dynamics Fault!" I'm thinking what? I'm in normal mode. What does this mean? So I pull over and shut off the car. I take a minute to let it sink in that I might need to go in for another service visit just when I need to drive to D.C. later this week. I re-start the car. No fault message. I drive all the way home, switching to "Dynamic" mode. I make it all the way home without a repeat of that scary message. What would you do next? Would you bring it in right away or wait? The car felt normal the whole time.

I've seen this on occasion. What I did notice when it occurred, was that the suspension felt REALLY stiff until reset by a restart. I plan on mentioning it when vehicle is in for servicing to see what the techs have to say.

I had the same fault three times early on in ownershipship. Once, it happened coincidentally while I was driving near the dealership. I pulled into the service lane and had them run the code. The tech told me the code reported an error in a solenoid that affects the ride character, but was safe to drive. The suspension felt very stiff when the fault alert was on, but reset on a vehicle restart. I didn't make a service appointment at the time, intending to set up one later. However, I haven't seen the fault again since I stopped at the dealer (2-3 months ago).

Well, I've been playing with it today, switching back and forth between dynamic and normal and back to dynamic. It has not reoccurred. I can tell the throttle response does change, but the difference in the suspension between dynamic and normal is less noticeable with softer All-Season tires than it is with harder summer tires. I could easily feel the difference when I was riding around on the factory-installed Pirelli P-Zeroes. All season tires, and I imagine winter tires, are so much softer than the summers. I really don't like the more pliable and softer ride. It's not as sporty. It's too "Lexus-comfy." I loved the 22-inch Pirelli summers. I had 'em at 43.5 psi and loved the ride. Can't wait to put 'em back on.

The stiffness with the fault showing wasn't pleasant or likely a desirable ride characteristic to anyone. It made you aware of every road imperfection and jostled my head around a lot too.

Thanks for sharing you experience at the dealer Fetzervalve.
