I play Spotify while commuting in my car for about an hour each workday at the "High" quality setting. The three settings are Normal, High, and Extreme. This adds up to about 1.5 GB of data.

On Saturday, August 23, I got a warning that all four tires were flat at once. I checked the pressure, which was normal on all four tires. Could there be a software glitch with some cars?
