I am having to check my tire pressure at least every three weeks. My tires are now 5 years old, have developed some small crack on the rubber and the pressure is fluctuating especially in the summer heat. As far as the TPS sensors are concerned by the time you receive a warning it's too late and you may have a dangerously low tire which could blow out. A lot of people are just too lazy and rely on the sensors, even ignoring it, then they wonder why their tires are worn out and blame the manufacturers.
