Nissan's Tire Filling System Removes the Guesswork

There’s just something about Nissan’s TV commercial for its Easy-Fill Tire Alert system. It’s a bit gross — three words: the kiss scene — but it’s also hilarious. It’s the kind of ad that makes people laugh even when they’ve seen it again and again.

The commercial must work because it got me thinking about Nissan’s system and whether it actually works. When filling the tires, the car’s hazard lights flash and the horn beeps when the tires are properly inflated, according to Nissan. reviewer Mike Hanley put it to the test earlier this year. Check out his video below — we promise he doesn’t kiss anything — to find out if it works as advertised.
