Proper tire inflation allows a car to run in its most efficient manner. In addition to higher fuel costs, underinflated tires also triple a driver’s risk of an accident. To address this concern, Nissan is implementing its "Easy Fill Tire Alert" system, starting with the 2013 Nissan Altima.
The system makes the tire filling process easy for drivers. When a tire is low, the vehicle will notify the driver and tell them which tire is underinflated. The driver can then access an air hose at the nearest gas station and begin to fill the tire. The car will flash its lights to notify the user that the air is going in the tire and the horn will sound when proper inflation has been reached.
"It’s one of those simple slap your forehead moments, as to why someone has not thought of it before," said Nissan Product Planner Vishnu Jayamohan.
