2010 Volvo XC60: Leaking Tire Fixed
September 24, 2010
Earlier this month (September 7th) Donna posted on how the Volvo XC60 gave her a low tire pressure warning while she was driving it. At the time, she just filled the tire back to its spec pressure. We hadn't gotten another warning until today, when I was driving the XC60 this morning. The culprit no doubt was a leak, albeit a slow one. I checked the tires with a pressure gauge (the Volvo won't tell you which one is low) and sure enough it was the passenger-side rear, the same tire Donna had found to be low.
I took the Volvo over to my local tire shop. It turns out there was a nail in the tire. Repair cost: $25. I heart TPMS.
