Checking The Tire Pressure In Your Car

Subaru service near Madison

Making sure your car tires are properly inflated is often near the bottom of the to-do list for many car owners, despite it being one of the easiest things to check when it comes to maintaining your car properly. Subaru of Morristown recommends that you check your tire pressure monthly, when temperatures heat up, and right before a long road trip.

Should you need new tires because of a leaky valve or other difficult-to-detect problem, Madison area drivers can always visit our Subaru service center to have certified technicians take a look at it.

Madison Area Drivers Need To Know: Why Is It Important?

Under-inflated tires pose a threat to not only you, but other drivers on the road also. If you are not consistently checking your tire pressure, there is a good chance your tires will wear out faster, which leads to reduced control, blowouts, and crashes.

As an added bonus, routine tire pressure checks will ease the stress on your wallet. Your gas mileage decreases by about 0.2% for every PSI your tire pressure drops below the recommended level. As a result of maintaining your tires regularly, you can save yourself up to 3% in gas mileage.

Should you find yourself at a point where your tires are already worn down from under-inflation, our Madison area Subaru dealer always has service specials to check out before you come in.

How To Check Your Tire Pressure

You can check your tire pressure at home or at a gas station. Good tire pressure gauges are cheap, and can prevent a lot of financial stress later on down the road.

It’s best to gauge your tire pressure when you haven’t driven in a few hours to get an accurate reading. Your owner’s manual should have the manufacturer’s recommended PSI, which you will need to make sure your tires are at a satisfactory pressure level.

Simply remove the end caps of the tires, being sure not to lose them in the process. Put the pressure gauge into the valve stem and press down to get a reading. You might have to do this a few times to make sure the reading isn’t off.

If the number shown is higher than the recommended PSI, push down on the valve to let out some air until the PSI is at the right level. If it is lower, you will have to visit an air pump station to fll up your tires.

Subaru Aims to Bring Madison area Drivers the Safest Options for Adventurous Pets

Driving with pets

No matter where they’re headed, Subaru drivers have an overwhelming tendency to enjoy a bit of exploration along the way. From a quick trip to the park to a road trip across the nation, there’s nothing like seeing where the road leads – and what lies beyond it.

At our Madison area Subaru dealer, we also know that our four-legged companions make some of the best co-pilots when it comes to adventures. After all, there’s no one who’s more excited for a car ride and a hike than Fido!

Unfortunately, not all drivers have the best safety gear for their pets available when they take them out on the road. Subaru is eager to change that.

Partnership with Center For Pet Safety Offers Independent Evaluation of Pet Safety Products

The automaker recently confirmed that they will continue their partnership with the Center For Pet Safety (CPS), which began in 2013. Through this sponsorship, CPS is able to complete independent crash worthiness studies on different pet restraint systems, crates, and carriers.

By combining a reliable harness or carrier with the existing safety features in the new Subaru models at our Madison area showroom, drivers can help to protect their pets as well as themselves in a collision. Over half of all drivers travel with their pets, and that number is even greater among Subaru drivers, so this is certainly good to hear.

Michael McHale, Subaru’s director of corporate communications, said, “We want to make pet parents aware of proper safety measures they can take to help protect their pets. Following the previous study with CPS, we were delighted to support this next stage in testing… We feel a sense of responsibility to inform pet parents of safety measures they can take.”

For more information on how you can take steps to protect all of your passengers on the road, be sure to contact Subaru of Morristown online or to call our team of experts at (866) 910-3466 today!
