A layperson would generally have a difficult time determining if a vehicle's tire pressure was high or low merely by looking at it. Fortunately, many modern cars are now equipped with specially-designed Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) that use sensors to continuously monitor the tire pressure.

The alert will activate when any tire is underinflated by 25%. There is a myriad of factors which can contribute to improper tire pressure, including temperature fluctuations, tire punctures, and normal wear and tear. The age of your vehicle and tires can affect the system's measurements, thus it is important to not rely completely on the TPMS to indicate when your tires need to be evaluated.

The safety of your vehicle's passengers is dependent on proper tire inflation. We invite you to stop by the Jenkins Hyundai car repair facility to let our experts inspect your TPMS to ensure that everything is working properly.
