    I think I heard that lower suspension is more range but not by much.

    How about durability? I think I remember reading some threads where people had to fix the suspension for hefty amount.

    Which mode is supposed to be most durable in terms of maintenance and repair? I am thinking either "Low" or "Standard"

    Based on the threads I've read, I keep our X in Standard all the time. 90D has enough range for our trips where a few extra % will not be worth the extra tire wear.

    Highway on straight flat roads ----> Low

    Bumpy roads or city driving -----> Regular or High.

    Bumps will damage you. City diving is slow so high stance will not be an issue.

    Fast level driving will benefit from a low stance on smooth surfaces as wind resistance will be diminished, and downward force will be increased to add stability.

    Best,
