The contact owns a 2009 Chrysler Town and country. While driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle shook without warning. The contact pulled over and discovered that the rear passenger side tire was flat. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the tire pressure monitor sensor retaining nut was split and failed due to erosion, which caused the tire to deflate. As a result, the tire needed to be replaced. The tire was replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 60,052. Updated 04/22/16

This is the second tire pressure sensor that broke while inflating tires. This is a real safety issue and the sensors should be recalled. I am worried about the other two breaking while driving the vehicle resulting in an accident.

problem #1

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • 38,000 miles
The last few times I had the oil changed in my wife's 2009 Chrysler Town and country the service person refused to check the tire pressure because of an inherent corrosion problem with the Chrysler valve stems, which are part of the TPMS. The right rear valve stem subsequently failed and the dealer wanted to charge $120 to replace the valve stem. (the vehicle has 38,000 miles) only after extended complaining and noting it was a safety issue and a common problem with Town & Country's did the dealer agree to fix it for free. While the tire maintained air pressure after the valve stem failed, I was unable to check the tire pressure or add air to the tire. My concern is the other 3 value stems are heavily oxidized and it will cost me and other Town & Country owners $300 - $400 to check tire pressure or add air into our tires. The cheap solution is to replace the expensive Chrysler valve stems with standard tire valve stems. However, this solution disables the TPMS which I thought was a required safety system. My other car with a TPMS has over 100,000 miles has no such issue with its valve stems or TPMS.
