2008 Scion xB: Pre-Holiday Check? Low Psi

November 21, 2007

2008 Scion xB -- Brent Romans

Today is America's big travel day. I hope all of you hitting the road are checking your vehicle's tire pressures.

I hopped into our Scion xB yesterday morning and found the car's low tire pressure warning light illuminated. I didn't have a gauge on me, and no tire looked flat... After about 15 minutes of highway driving, the light winked out. "One of the tires is on the verge of hitting the sensor's low pressure threshold," I thought. But in checking the tires this morning, I found them all to be 5 to 9 psi below the cold recommended inflations.

Practice what you preach? Frankly, it was embarrassing to find them that low.
