Nissan talks new tire tech
Nissan has announced a very interesting and cool new tire pressure monitoring system for its 2013 vehicles that will debut on the 2013 Nissan Altima. The system is called the Easy Fill Tire Alert and is a much smarter tire pressure monitoring system than most vehicles have. The system has a dash light that will glow if a tire is low and will tell you which specific tire needs air.
Once you go to inflate the tire, you need no tire gauge. When the car senses air pressure increasing in the tire the running lights will flash one time. When the tire reaches the proper inflation pressure, the horn will beep. If the tire is overfilled, the lights will flash in the horn will honk three times to alert the driver. Once the air is removed and the pressure returns to normal the lights were flashing again. This means that you can inflate the tires perfectly without having to bother with the tire gauge or wondering if you have enough air.
