I sell new Dodge Chryslers and Jeeps. We bought a Nitrogen machine and put nitrogen in every new car we sell because of the tpms. Most cars have a warning lamp on the dash. Some of the higher end vehicles have individual pressure read outs in the vehicle information center. We bought the machine because customers were constantly coming in with the light going on and we were spending our days adding air to customers tires. Hasn't been much of a problem since we started doing nitrogen.

Same here. ABS has been great in the Best. In snow/rain/ice this thing can't be beat! Its so good that I don't even consider taking the Buick out if there is even the slightest possibility of snow/rain/ice being encountered on my trip. You still have to think about the other people who are out on the roads with less capable vehicles and driving skills though. That's what I'm scared of... The other drivers.
