Hi: Garand...Dave If my memory hasn't faded too much I think I remember someone saying that the factory that builds the Frontiers is in Tenn. You could call that "Made Locally"!!! Alf

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

Hi: All...This is the first vehicle I've ever had with a TPMS. The first real cold snap we've had and there's a light on the dash. Had to get out the owners manual to find out all about it!!! In a nutshell it says the tires are not at the correct pressure. What to do I drove into town and stopped by my tire dealer who was just explaning to another customer with the same questions. A slight top up with Nitro and as I drove home the light went out. Boy are TPMS's ever touchy. Alf

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

One time I got in my truck and saw the TPMS dash light thinking the cold weather again.... But after getting out and tire inspection found a nail. I sure do like the feature.

Re: New 2010 TUG Coming

Hi: gocamp...It's a learning curve...these new features!!! I think they stem from all the controversy about SUV's...underinflated tires, blowouts, and rollover collisions. In that respect they are great to have and to understand. Alf
