    Something like this should have been under warranty or safety-recall.  Although I'm canadian, I would have yelled for the NHTSA to get involved !!

    And god help you if you have a "smart speaker" or such at home. Their mics are ALWAYS  ON, to hear-record-and pass on any & every thing !!
    My opinion: If a company is going to make money with MY personal info, then they should pay me for that priveledge !!

    Yes, load rating IS important. BUT you can always reduce the weight of all the 'junk' that ends up accumulating in our cars.  Even standard (factory installed) tires can be destroyed by overloading the car.  My 7-seat TC has never yet had a load equal to 7 people in it.

    Gideon got a reaction from OLDSCHOOLFOOL in TPMS question   
    Generally prices here in Canada are higher than USA. That said, I have no problem using old-fashioned hand tire gauge and simply ignoring the TPMS warning in dash.

    Gideon got a reaction from mrtn in Help me decide   
    mrtn;   NAFTA (or the new version of it) applies to commercial import/export.  Private individuals need to deal with Canada Customs, Federal AND Provincial tax depts., and provincial licensing rules.  A BIG "PITA" !!
     
    Sgsf12:  to the best of my limited knowledge, all transit-connects were imported as 'passenger' models to avoid the US "chicken tax". They were/are then stripped at a US plant and the removed parts are reused.
    If you plan on converting to a minicamper, then your final choice is probably the best idea.
