2010 Honda Crosstour: Low Tire Pressure, That's All

November 22, 2010

Yesterday, after I left a friend's place and was on my way home, the "Low Tire Pressure" warning light for our 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour came on. Eek!

Yeah, worrywart that I am, I feared being stuck with a flat tire on a dark street; I had at least half an hour of daylight left and 10 miles til I reached home. So I pulled in to a gas station to check on the tires, fearing the worst.

I scanned each tire and ran my hand over each one to see if I could feel air or if there were any nails. Nothing. So then I proceeded to check them with the tire gauge (those things are hard to read!) on the air wand.

According to the sticker on the driver door jamb, the recommended psi for both front and rear tires is 32. And according to the tire gauge, the front tires were just fine, but both rear tires looked to be about 28-30 psi.

I filled them up and within a minute or so after starting the car, the "Low Tire Pressure" light went out. And the good news is that the next morning, it didn't come back on, meaning no leak. Pfew!
