Tire pressure gauges too confusing to figure out? Never sure just when to put more air in your tires? Had more flats than a shoe store? Thankfully, James Ceranti Nissan has a solution—Nissan’s all-new Easy Fill Tire Alert.
The Easy Fill Tire Alert system was just named one of six finalists by AOL Auto for the 2012 Technology of the Year Award. The winner will be announced January 9, 2013 at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. We at James Ceranti Nissan are feeling confident about the chances for the Easy Fill Tire Alert.
So what makes the Easy Fill Tire Alert so incredible? The system uses tire pressure monitoring sensors that will alert you as soon as your tire pressure drops below a safe level. This is very important as so many drivers unknowingly drive at dangerous pressure levels, which makes them much more likely to get into an accident. Once you stop to put more air into the low tire(s), the system will activate four-way flashers that indicate that a tire is being filled. When the tire has reached the appropriate level, the car will honk. If for some odd reason you persist, the car will keep honking to let you know you’ve filled it too high, and then as you release air, it will honk again to let you know you’ve reached the right level.
The technology is really ingenious. For 2013, Nissan plans to add the system to the Nissan Altima, the Quest minivan, the all-new Pathfinder three-row SUV, and the Sentra sedan. We expect it will make its way into all Nissan and Infiniti vehicles in the coming years. Find this technology now in some 2013 Nissan vehicles at James Ceranti Nissan, www.jamescerantinissan.net.
