I just got an error message telling me to "Service My Tire Mobility Kit"

 

I have never used it before, in fact I didn't even know I had it. Is this something I need to take it into the dealer to get taken care of?

It is designed to make sure the fix-it flat repair can is OK. Personally, I recommend getting an inexpensive tire repair kit (plugs), and using that along with the inflator. Cost me around 10 bucks total. Be sure and include small pliers to remove nails, etc.

 Those fix-it cans are terrible on the rims and the TPMS sensors.

I believe there is a setting in the myview or on the display on selecting the Tire Mobility Kit service interval. 1,2,3 years, probably so the fluid fix stuff doesn't go bad to get it replaced. Not sure how long the stuff lasts if you don't use it. 

 

The dealer has to replace the canister if you use it to fix your tires, or after so many years?  you may have to replace the TPMS sensor in the tire too once you use the fix it foam. As he stated, get a tire repair kit with plugs, etc....just in case.
