Cooler Weather and Tire Pressure.

Friday morning, I was warmly welcomed in my 2008 Hyundai Sonata with a (!).

What does that mean?  An exclamation seems critical and urgent!!  I sat on edge all the way to work, a whopping four miles.  Luckily, I work at Eckert Hyundai and they immediately pulled it into service.  Not a worry.  My tire pressure dropped with the cooler morning weather and the handy service team aired them up.  The best part?  FREE!  And not just for me, folks!  
If all you need is some air they'll check out your tires to make sure there are no serious problems and air them up, if there is not.  All while you enjoy hot coffee, a cozy couch, cable TV and free wifi.
Sounds good to me...

Want to know why this happens?  
Me too.

Cool temperatures in fall, winter and, let's face it, the occasional spring months, causes the air in your tires to contract.  And your poor tires will fluctuate pressure.  You have GOT to ensure proper air pressure so your tires have optimal traction on those [sometimes] icy roads.  When the temperatures rapidly decline your air pressure will also rapidly decrease.

This website tells you to check tire pressure often.  Lucky for you, Hyundai installed the light on the dashboard for the convenience.  No crawling around in the cold to check tire pressure!  
However you may want to check the tire pressure on your spare tire if you are hitting the road! 
Happy Monday!
