    Isn't TPMS just a convenience thing? Why would it be a safety issue if they aren't functioning correctly? People should check their tire pressure once a month anyway, and if you get a flat while driving you'll probably feel it at the same time the light comes on. But I've never had that happen so I don't know.

    That's two strikes
    1. Drivers are too stupid to check floor mats
    2. Drivers are too stupid to see their tire is too low.
    :rolleyes:
    :facepalm:
    Time to re-test people or start taking away driver license

    OH NOOOOOO! Heaven forbid the car doesn't tell you when your tires are getting low! Man...just think if they were to ever make cars that didn't even have TPMS. Oh wait...

    If you read it is really the dealer's fault not the owner's or the factory's fault.

    The vehicles affected left their assembly plants with working monitoring systems, but when accessory wheels were installed, the systems were not recalibrated and now lights to warn drivers of low tire pressure may fail, the report said.

    Agree about checking the tire pressure often...I usually go with weekly or so...

    Do not agree that you will feel it. I had a tire cut by some trash on the road- It was a slower leak so the tire was only flattening out a little bit but heating up fast. It could have gotten bad if I didn't have that light. And with the load I had on the truck already- I never felt a thing.

    If you were the #1 auto maker in the United States with the kind of litigious society we have, where a judge decides you're due compensation after you spill hot coffee on your lap, etcetera ad infinitum, you'd be sure to recall the 22,000 trucks that don't have a properly functioning tire pressure monitoring system.

    If you didn't, the next thing you know three months down the road as you click the TV on there's a speedway blue Tacoma crashed in a 15-car pileup, and the driver has already told one reporter they don't know why they spun out of control and caused this huge accident, they thought their tire pressure was good, but they'll be contacting their lawyers soon.

    Not right, and drivers in general can always have more common sense, but that's the society we live in. As a company, you have to look out for your own ass.

    You're right. Because this new generation of people suck and want everything for nothing...so they blame everything on everyone else. It really is too bad that the majority of people in America are retarded. (I'm not talking about anyone on here, unless you want everything for nothing and would blame Toyota for making a faulty window after you smashed it in with a sledgehammer. Then, you're retarded.)

    if the light on your dash is the only way you can tell you have a flat tire, you are a retard. I have not taken my truck in for a single recall since the day i bought it, and i haven't died in a fiery crash yet.
