I was getting a key made one time and the mechanic came out to let a waiting customer know that he broke off the pressure sensor inside of one of his tires. Stated that the part would be $85 + labor and he was not allowed to take the car somewhere else for the repair, because the law stated that the tire could not be remounted without the sensor.
He brought it in to have the a slow tire leaked fixed and it ended up costing him @ $150.00
