Welcome to "Rip Boys". Whether you have this feature or not, the better question is what did they charge you for it and do other tire vendors charge for that?
I went to "Rip Boys" once and only once to get a quote to fix an A/C problem on my car. They dismantled half the A/C system, gave me a high quote; I told them I wanted a 2nd opinion, but they did not put it all back together. I blew a gasket at the manager to get the situation resolved.
...and never went back for the next 18 years. Nor will I ever shop there again. And this experience, if you read online is typical. So, if you got off with a small overcharge, IMHO, maybe you are the lucky one.

My warning light for pressures won't come on till I'm down below 10 psi because of the ORV package. My tires can be taken down to between 10-12psi for sand / rock driving, but once I go below 10, the warning goes off.

#3434 of 3439 Window actuators
Oct 23, 2013 (9:57 pm)
Not the best vehicle I've owned. Now 3 window actuators broke in the last 10 months. At $400 per this really sucks. I drove over railroad tracks and the rear passenger window just fell inside the door. It started with the driver side driver window. OK it gets used a lot. Then the driver passenger window. I don't have kids that ride with me. The salesman told me it's a design flaw. He said the using the remote to lock unlock affects these parts. So even if the window doesn't get use, this part wears out? I only had 1 window break with all the cars/SUVs I've owned. 2007 and 105,000. Gas mileage was good till I had to replace the wiring harness.
#3436 of 3439 Honda Pilot: Gas Cap Cover Freezes Shut
Nov 25, 2013 (6:07 pm)
I purchased my first Honda Pilot this past September and have been pretty happy with it. However, now that winter has arrived, I've found that whenever we have a snow/melt/freeze cycle, water accumulates at the bottom inside of the circular plastic cover over the gas cap, causing it to freeze shut.
The dealer has tried "adjusting" the cover, which did not sit flush with the back fender, but that hasn't helped.
I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same problem and whether there is a good solution.
Thanks for your help.

We dont have this kind of problem down here in the Sunshine state, but since the dealer is clueless, I would suggest this: Have someone (and this may be you, if you are mechanically inclined) drill two small "weep holes" in the bottom of the plastic socket that the gas cap is attached to, where the water collects. Be sure to drill where, and in such a way, that you do not drill into the fuel tank intake tube. Water should then weep out of that area and not freeze.
You could also coat the area with silicone spray (available in the sporting good section), if you are squeamish about drilling the weep holes.
But the weep holes should do the trick. Hell, the dealer should be able to do it for you, for that matter.
