Tire Compressor broken again

Hello Minor problem compared to others but I wonder how long these compressors/Seal kit last. I had to replace one with the 2013 volt and now the one with my 2015 Volt broke. At the switch. I was expecting this one with the 2015 to go as it was laboring alot after 35PSIG where the units with the 2013 hummed right along to 42 PSIG. Actually the unit reads about 45PSIG to get 42 PSIG on the tires. You have to overshoot what pressure you want to see on the display. I think I checked this a few years ago with a hand gage and the display is more accurate then the compressor gage.

I'd only use the GM supplied compressor when in a bind on the road. When at home, I use a heavier duty air compressor. For those in the market for an air compressor, I am amazed at how quiet a California Air compressor is.

My wife used to jump out of her shoes every time she happens to walk by the garage and my old Coleman compressor would jump into action. Eliminating the fear of instant death due to compressor induced migraines is a good thing.
And I say spend an extra $24 to save your ears and your signifcant other's sanity

The stuff from harbor freight is cheap, and in this case noisy. 88 db va. 60 db is a world of difference.
