I agree with part of what you say about the cord separation and a blow out, but not about the not maintaining their vehicle. The TPMS is great for letting you know if you happen to pick up a nail, etc. and thus avoiding a possible blowout, etc. I have a TPMS system and also maintain the proper air pressure as I did for 37 yrs prior to buying the system.
