Have a 2012 SE. My TPMS light goes off exactly once a year. Usually in late October or early November after we've have a sudden cold snap overnight (below 40 degrees), and always when I'm driving at higher speed on the highway. Head over to the gas station, fill up all the tires to 35 PSI. Drive away and light goes out in about a minute. Don't have the light appear again until about a year later.

Of course, it's always good practice to check your tire pressures about once a month with a decent quality tire gauge (dial type).
