Nissan To Debut 'Easy Fill Tire Alert' System

Nissan will debut a simple new technology it calls Easy Fill Tire Alert on the 2013 Altima. The new tire fill system automatically lets you know when you've reached proper pressure without the need for those annoying gauges.

We've already seen the 2013 Altima and its 38 mpg at the New York Auto Show. This week, Nissan details one more feature of the car. The Easy Fill Tire Alert system is an intuitive feature that lets you know when your tires are below pressure and when they're back to normal.

A sort of full-car effort, the new system monitors your tires and displays low pressures via the instrument cluster. It actually shows the pressure of the tires, instead of just displaying a warning, so that you know exactly how bad it is.

When you begin to fill the tire up, the flashers come on to let you know that air is going into the tire. Then, when you reach proper pressure, the horn honks to let you know. To make it even more foolproof, the flashers will speed up and the horn will beep three times if you overfill. You no longer have to worry about tire gauges, cold pressure, etc. - it's basically tire filling for dummies.

Easy Tire Fill isn't quite as intriguing as autonomous vehicle technologies or in-car Wi-Fi, but it will probably prove more useful for everyday driving. In addition to helping you when filling your tires, the Easy Fill system takes over monitoring duties (which people often overlook), helping in optimizing fuel economy and driving performance.

Watch it in action in the video below.
