Mig954 is on a distinguished road

I've gotta agree.

Yesterday morning while on the expressway my TPMS alarm went off and the EVIC showed the pressure dropping fast. I was able to exit before I could even "feel" the flat on the right rear.

Another thing that works great: I pressed the UConnect phone button on the steering wheel and said, "Emergency." Chrysler service answered, asked if they could use my phone's GPS to locate me and sent a technician out. He was there in under the promised 60 minutes. The tech took the tire off and before changing it noticed there had been a nail or screw in the tire. He said he could plug it for $10 (plugging isn't part of the roadside plan).

At first I told him no thanks. I could go to the dealer and get it done for free. After thinking about it, I realized for $10 I wouldn't have to go to the dealer and spend time while they plugged it and remounted it and returned the spare to its stowage spot.

This guy did all of this in the pouring rain so I slipped him an extra $10. $20 well spent.
