Thanks so much to all for your input! I am recently on my own, and
having exclusively leased cars in the past 15+ years (the dealer just
took care of EVERYthing), I have to admit (embarassed) I don't know
how to check tire pressure with a gauge (yet). I bought the TL after
extensively researching the price range for the best value/most
reliable car I could buy, and I am really enjoying it -- guess I'll
have to learn to take care of these little things. Admittedly, I
never learned how to use a device to check the pressure because, if
they were low, well, I don't know how to add air (really embarassed).
You go to the gas station, and they have a hose with an "out of order"
sign on it, right, lol? Still, I thank you and will bring up this
"quirk" to my dealer again, asking that he provide a solution to having
to drive with the somewhat disconcerting message on display. Your
input helped a lot. Laura
