Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) comes equipped on every Audi vehicle and monitors that the tire pressure is within safe limits. If the tire pressure reads as too low or too high, the TPMS indicator will light up on the dashboard to alert the driver. Why is this important?

What You Should Know About Tire Pressure

· Proper tire pressure is necessary to maintain the safety, fuel efficiency and performance of your vehicle.

· Information on recommended tire pressure levels is printed on a label on the door sill on the driver’s side.

· If the tire pressure is too low, this will cause damage to the side wall as the tire is designed to support the weight of the vehicle. This could eventually lead to safety and performance concerns; including a tire blowout, a shorter tire life, and poor fuel economy.

· If the tire pressure is too high, the driver will experience poor handling and a rougher ride.

· If you feel your tire pressure is too high or too low, simply stop by the Service Center at Fletcher Jones Audi and we’ll check on that for you as a complimentary service. No appointment necessary.

· If the tire is flat, please call Audi 24-hour Roadside Assistance at 1-800-411-9988 for assistance.
