I work in a tire shop and after the many times of dealing with them i am bias towards hating them!! the systems are great...many cars pinpoint the which it is now, trust me not a good think cuz when you set one tire to 35PSI and another at like 34.8 PSI the customer can tell and some people don't understand that the .2PSI is so unnoticable its not funny!!! real pain in the ass!!

Also you have to watch you never put metal caps on the valve stems with sensors attached or leave caps off!! corrosion is the worst enemy of these and i have replaced tons of them due to them corroding!!

So i prefer the method of checking my pressures every month! haha but it is a great system none the less, especially that dodge relearns sensor position themselves! GM has to be manually reset!!
