Tire Sensors Corrode and Fall into Tires on Dodge and Chrysler Model Vehicles

Photo of a TPMS sensorThe firm has FILED a class action consumer case concerning defective tire valve-style TPMS sensors in Dodge and Chrysler mini-vans, including Gran Caravan and Town & Country, model years 2008 through 2011. Specifically, it is alleged that corrosion causes the retaining nuts (which secure the sensors) to split or corrode, causing sensors to loosen and fall into the tires, causing the tires, in turn, to suddenly deflate. The TPMS sensors are approximately $50.00 per tire to replace. However, as a result of corrosion or splitting the tire may be damaged, resulting in substantially greater costs for the failure. The case is Tomassini v. Chrysler Group LLC and if pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York.
