    Been noticing that my Model X air suspension seems to be releasing a bit of air when I wake up the car using the app or when I stop at a red light. Not always but often enough. Is this normal. Thanks in advance for the info.

    Yes, both are normal. The air suspension isn’t always-on when your car is off, and waking the app probably triggers the air suspension to re-level.

    Furthermore, stopping or slowing to a very slow speed tends to trigger the system to re-level too. It always surprises my passengers that at slow speeds my Model S makes sounds like a cyborg on a ventilator, but it’s normal.

    I would classify this a Tesla sound deadening issue. I'd rather not hear any hisses and pisses from the car.
