Had my M3 for 3 days and while on the highway I get an alert to check my tire pressure. I noticed that my DS front tire was at a bout 38psi. At first I thought it was a faulty sensor. I didn't hit anything and I only had about 140 miles on the car. I decided to at least get off of the highway...37..36..35...
As it got lower, I think somewhere around 20psi I got a warning to pull over to avoid a dangerous situation or something to that effect.
Pulled into a Home Depot parking lot and sure enough the tire was hissing and went flat.
Called Tesla and they had a tow out in about an hour and a half. (I told them to take their time because I was on my way to a doctor appointment). Towed me about 20 miles to the tire shop where the guy can't replace it until Monday.
I was very happy for the tech giving me the warning about low air pressure but a donut and jack would have been good too.
Anyone else suffer from a flat? If so, how did you deal with it? I read in the manual that Tesla has a Tire repair kit but I haven't looked into it yet. I did get a compressor at HD but the hole seemed to be on the inside of the tire. I'll still keep it though.
