Useless TPMS?

Well the other day I was on a 2 1/2 road trip to see the inlaws . On the highway had the cruise set at 100 km/h and noticed that the fuel mileage wasn't what it normally is when set at that speed. Out of curiosity I decided to check the tire pressure about half way through the trip at a gas station that had air, and behold, I had 23 psi in all four.

I was kinda upset cause I thought this damn car was supposed to have TPMS, I checked the manual and it stated that it does, even though it appeared to not be working. Of course I filled all of them to the recommended 35 psi and went on my way.

The next day at work I decided to check and see if and when they would ever come on, so i started the car and proceeded to deflate my drivers side front tire, turns out that the light will only kick in at about 20 psi???? What good is that!?!

But....... it will only go back out when the tire gets back to 35 psi.

Just wondering if anyone else has tested theirs to make sure they are working correctly.
