No one likes a flat tire, and that's why the tire pressure monitoring system in your vehicle is such a life saver. A light on your dashboard illuminates when one of the tires is losing air pressure, but do you know why your tires lose air pressure?

There are a couple of reasons that your tires can lose pressure. It's possible that you have a slow leak, or you've lost some air due to normal air loss. It's, however, also common to lose pressure as the weather gets colder. When air gets colder, the molecules contract, causing your tires to lose pressure even though if there was no actual loss of air molecules from your tires.

These are just a couple of the most obvious reasons that your vehicle might lose air pressure. If you're interested in learning more, come to Kempthorn Volkswagen in Canton, and we'll be happy to chat more with you.
