I've had this jack less than a year. I needed it to fit under my lowered M3, which it did, but the handle always gave me problems. The bent bar wouldn't fit under the car, the socket it nests into deforms until you can't get leverage, and finally, the socket broke off the jack. Additionally, the jack lost hydrolic pressure a couple times and began lowering itself (good thing I had the car on jack stands). I haven't tried to return it yet, but I'm not going to get it replaced. I'm getting a different jack.
I would not recommend this jack if you own a suv. The noise it makes makes you feel like it’s about to snap. A 2.5 ton should be enough for my suv. On my drive way, with it jack all the way up, the tire barely off the ground.
