    I think the biggest issues with the suspension skis was just more or less a pain in the butt to get at the engine for maintenance or work. Otherwise they really weren't more or less reliable than there non-suspension counterparts.

    Exactly. I had an 09 iS and other than a few 1st gen ibr issues it ran well over 200 hours without a problem.

    It was just difficult to do normal maintenance.

    The IS was discontinued first. I don't know whether it was complexity or reliability. Now none of them have suspension as far as I can tell. My boss has a 2014 GTX 260 with a suspension and he loves it because he says it makes for a much nicer ride after a couple of back surgeries. There have been no issues with the suspension so far. So to answer your question it must have been the IS that was the issue.
