2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: TPMS Warning

July 03, 2012


Yesterday I received an email regarding our 2012 Chevrolet Sonic. It read something like this:

"Just a heads up that the tire pressure monitoring light came on in the Sonic this morning. The right rear was indeed low (20 psi versus the required 35 psi). I put air in it and the rest of the tires were OK. I didn't see any obvious puncutres or damage, but wanted to let you know."

We stopped by the tire shop to confirm our fears. There was a screw on the inside shoulder of the tire. It was not repairable. And nobody in town carried a replacement Hankook Optimo H428 in stock. We asked the shop to install the donut while we wait for the new tire.
