So I get into my car last night and my car warns me that I have low tire pressure. I go fill my tire with air and problem is solved...so I thought.

I woke up this morning and the car is now telling me that the tire is now flat. I haven't been able to find any puncture holes or anything protruding from my tire. My real question is, will this be covered under my warranty? I haven't been able to contact my dealer, as they are closed on Sunday. Anybody know if it'll be covered? I would have to have to replace my run-flat already at cost to me after only a few weeks.

Sweet. Now the only problem is my dealer is 150 miles away...
You might check with a Nissan dealer... Perhaps they can clear the code or reset the system. Might be worth a call before you drive if the closest Infiniti dealer is 150 miles away. I know it's a new model, but not all of the technology is new.

Call dealer and they may authorize a auto store near by if not the 300 miles drive may be worth the trouble to replace tire or TPMS sensor or the complete wheel & tire.
I like to have my dealer within 25 miles at most.

I just read the warranty booklet and it says it should be covered at any Goodrich rated tire dealer or something, so hopefully one of the professional tire shops around here can service my car if the Nissan dealer can't help.

Having a dealer within 25 miles would be nice - I would love to have it that way if possible - but not something that is an option in less populated parts of the country like where I live.

Do you have spare in your Q50? It may be worth bargains with the dealer to throw one in for free.
There are Pros and cons of living in countryside.

I have the hybrid model, so a spare would take up my entire trunk, which I would like to preserve :D

As long as I can get the tire replaced under warranty, locally, I'll have no issue with any of it. I was at least hoping that these tires would last the full duration before I started swapping them all out for non-run flats. I'll let you guys know how things turn out when I contact them tomorrow.

I find it very hard to believe that they will replace the tire under warranty. Especially from a road hazard, unless you bought the road hazard package from the financing guy

I've looked over the tire extensively and I can't find a puncture anywhere, and the air leaks out pretty slowly.

On a side note, I remember reading on these forums that run-flat tires aren't repairable, but in the warranty booklet it says the run-flats can be repaired. Can anyone attest to this?

go to page 35 of warranty booklet:
up to 12 month - you get tire replaced
also read what's not covered - still allows 6 months for free replacement

The run flats are repairable. Had the misfortune of a slow leak/nail after just one week. TPM worked flawlessly and frankly the run flats for all of their downside were much appreciated when you actually encounter a flat ! Trade off but now will give some serious thought into my replacement tires. I do have a spare tire package so will most likely swap for pilot a/s.
