Common Car Questions
As a car owner, we have lots of questions about the complicated machines we drive every day. Most of our common car questions are ones about everyday vehicle maintenance that we Google before asking anyone. At CROWN Auto Group, we make car ownership easy, which is why we want to help answer your car questions.
Here is a list of common questions about the everyday use and maintenance of your vehicle.
How Often Should I Check My Tire Pressure?
Newer vehicles often have tire pressure sensors that alert you when your tire pressure is low. If your vehicle does not have tire pressure sensors you should check your tire pressure every month and after a tire change.
What Does PSI Mean, and PSI Should My Tires Be?
PSI means pounds per square inch. Tires are typically recommended to have a PSI of 32. This means your tire has 32 pounds per square inch.
Each vehicle has its own recommended PSI which can be found on a sticker located on the inside of the driver’s side door. We recommend following your vehicle’s instructions.
During your next visit to our Winnipeg service shop, ask your service advisor to show you how to check tire pressure, and where to find your vehicle’s PSI.
How Often Should I Wash My Car?
Wash your car weekly and detail it every three months to keep your vehicle in top condition.
