So, I’m apparently the last to find out… my Suzuki is due for an airbag recall. The only “dealer” who handles it is 100 miles away.
Last fall, I had to get new tires. Although they tried valiantly on three different occasions, Costco was unable to reset the TPMS.
It was in the fall of 2015 that I was told that the batteries had died in 2 of the 4 TPMS sensors. I checked around, and Costco had the lowest price. So, I had Costco replace the 2 dead sensors.
And… the TPMS light has been on ever since.
So, since the car is due for the airbag recall, I thought… as long as I’m at the dealer… I could have them reset the TPMS sensors. Surely, they must know what they’re doing, right? But, I have to admit I’m kind of steamed about the idea of forking over 88 bucks to someone to “solve” this problem, when really, it’s Costco’s problem, as far as I’m concerned.
Having said that, I’ve heard that the TPMS on the Suzukis are notoriously difficult to reset, so… look at it another way… maybe not really Costco’s fault after all (the last time Costco tried, I think they were at it for over an hour and STILL couldn’t get the TPMS reset)
I’m pretty conscientious about tire pressure… so… I might just let it go… but it’s a feature that the car came with, and when I go on long trips, well… it’s a nice feature to have.
Question: if it were YOUR car, would YOU pay the 88 bucks?
