Tires Plus Hopkins MN broken tire pressure sensor
Tire Plus, located in Hopkins Minnesota, informed me when They were installing my new tires that one of my tire pressure sensors was broken. The sensor was not flashing when I brought the vehicle in.
When I talked to my Toyota dealer they said that the only way they break is if you drive with a flat. I have never driven with a flat. The price to fix one sensor is $500.00 and it is not covered under any warranty.
I went back to Tires Plus and asked them to fix it. They refused. When I pressed for a scenario in which the sensor would break, they said driving on a flat. I have never driven on a flat and had never had the tires off the rims until Tires Plus took them off.
I have been offered no other plausible explanation of how this sensor may have broken. I questioned the Toyota tech about every possibility. I can only conclude that the sensor was broken at Tires Plus during tire removal or install.
Monetary Loss: $500.
