My car had a flat tire. It’s the left rear tire. The amazing thing was that the inflation warning lighted up on my dashboard while we were on the Interstate driving home from visiting my ‘in-laws over the weekend. And we’re like 45 minutes close to our house and the flat tire still managed to work.
I panic on alerts like these especially when I am in long distance driving. I wonder if we’ll be stuck on the road. I don’t what that to happen…ever.
- It is highly recommended that you familiarize yourselves to the alert and warning icons on your vehicle. This way you will be aware of the occurring problem and you will have the immediate time to solve it. Always refer to your vehicle’s manual for more helpful information about alerts and warnings.
- Take your vehicle to the nearest automotive repair shop or tire shop near you as soon as possible. You will never know when your flat tires will give out so the sooner you take your car there the better.
- Ask the maintenance guys to give you the thing that causes the tires flat. We always do so we know what it was.
Since the tire shop in town is closed on weekends, I took my car there yesterday. And the cause of the flat tire was a long nail. About 2 1/2 inches long.
