So after test driving several SUVs I decided to choose the Palisade on technology, looks and price. It’s been several weeks since I test drove it, and to be honest, a lot of the cars run together in my mind when it came to a smooth ride. But none of them stood out as “rough” or “bumpy”. Fast-forward to today when I traded in my 2013 Mercedes ML350 for a new Palisade SEL AWD. The dealer didn’t have the exact car I wanted so he has to bring it in from another dealership. It will be here tomorrow. In the meantime, the dealer gave me a Palisade SEL FWD to drive. On my way home the top thing that stood out was how bumpy it was!!! How did I not notice this in the test drive??? I was crying by the time I got home with buyer’s remorse. I miss my Mercedes! 😭 Someone please tell me this loaner is just a fluke!

Sexman is right on the money. The one I test drove had 44/45 psi. I immediately knew the tires was hyper inflated, but not everybody does. And it could easily mean a lost sale. Don't understand why dealers don't adjust tire pressures on every car when they arrive; they always come over inflated to prevent flat spots. Feels like you're riding on the wheels. Ha ha. I typically take my tire pressure gauge on test drives, and adjust tire pressures to what they should be, which in the Palisade's case is 35 psi. Bottom line is you should be fine when you adjust tire pressures to that. So take your tire pressure gauge when you pick up your new SUV, and don't close the deal unless you're satisfied. Good luck.
I just checked the loaner's tire pressure, and you are correct. The PSI is at 45+. I appreciate the input! The knot in my stomach has lessoned.

Thanks all for your input! Got my car today and told the dealer to make sure to lower the PSI to 35. MUCH better! Still not as smooth as my Mercedes but it’s definitely something I can get used to.
