Had a tpms service light go out on a Lexus a few years back. Dealer repaired ONE OR REPLACED it for nearly $230.
Then got a nail a few days later on my Rogue and was charged nearly $35 to patch it.
I then brought the lexus to have 3 tires changed because they were like 10 years old but had only 10,000 miles on them and still looked good. But i wanted to play it safe.
After going home, as luck would have it, the Lexus sensors go off.
Thinking I save money I bring it to NTB to replace the remaining 3 sensors which would be cheaper than just replacing one at Lexus.
Took them 3 days to figure it out since it's known for this I guess.
Anyways, got me paranoid that i needed to replace my tpms on the Rogue which were I guess around 8 yrs old.
Bought some oem off ebay and asked NTB for a complimentary install since I was their customer.
They wanted $25 per tire. Hell with this company after charging me nearly $35 to patch the tire on my Rogue.
Most do a free tire patch for a previous customer or charge 10 bucks. Remember I bought a tire and 3 tpms sensors from them earlier.
So I went to Discount Tire after reading good things about them. They charged me, never being a customer; $10 per tire to install each tpms sensor. They just got a new customer.
Ironically, I ran over a screw YESTERDAY and got a free patch job at Discount Tires! They definitely my go to place for future tires! Friendly bunch.
Unlike NTB, which feels like a place trying to squeeze every last dollar from you. Avoid NTB at all cost. This store was merchants tire before being bought by NTB, but it doesn't mean nothing to them that your a previous customer of the merged company.
