A recall has been announced for 143,000 Nissan vehicles equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring for the possibility that losing air load suddenly would result to a crash. Affected vehicles include 2008-2010 Nissan vehicles that have TPM, specifically the 2009 Nissan Cube and Murano, along with the 2008 Rogue, 2008-2010 Infiniti M35 and M45 sport sedans.

The recall was announced after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that the material in the nut may corrode in areas that use high concentrations of road salt. The nut could then come out of the sensor-transmitter, illuminating the amber TPMS lamp. Ignoring this warning could lead to the tire quickly deflating and at worst, resulting in a crash. The risk is said to be higher if the car is driven in one of the 21 cold-weather states. Owners of the models affected by the recall are asked to go to the nearest Nissan or Infiniti dealer to get a “more robust nut.” Dealers will be able fix recalled vehicles on or before November 2010.

chrysler must be useing the same sensors.
we had two company vans blow the whole sensor off at 35000 miles.
it was like clock work.
the first van hit 35000 and the front right blew off at highway speed.
weeks later the second one let go on the second van.
both during below zero degree weather.

That is very possible all of these sensors come from third party sources.

It's scary to think of all the things salt could mess up on modern vehicles.
