What Does TPMS Mean for Your Jaguar?

 

Your Jaguar is a finely tuned, high-performance machine. It has a powerful engine, stylish design and innovative features throughout. One of these innovations is something known as TPMS: Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Let’s take a closer look at this system in cars at Jaguar Cherry Hill.

Features of the TPMS

Jaguar’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System is a technologically advanced system. It utilizes sensors to automatically check your tire pressure. TPMS will let you know if there is a problem, through a warning light on your Jaguar’s console. If any of your tires are not at the right air pressure, TPMS will activate. If the light does come on, your tires don’t have enough air.

There are several problems that go along with an underinflated tire. This includes excess wear and tear on your tires. You will also notice a downgrade in traction with your tires. Your gas mileage will suffer from an underinflated tire. You also won’t be able to carry heavy loads as efficiently in your Jaguar. A final, dangerous possibility is that your tire may blow out or become flat.

Properly Inflate your Jaguar’s Tires

While many of the issues you may encounter are due to under-inflation of the tire, some are also caused by over-inflation. Therefore, you will want to have a properly inflated tire.

 A properly inflated tire has many advantages. Tread will be maintained much longer with a tire inflated to the correct psi capacity. The roll of the tire will be smoother, which will help the overall efficiency of the vehicle. Water will be dispersed more efficiently from the tire. This will help avoid the dreaded hydroplane.

The appropriate tire pressure can be found in your Jaguar owner’s manual. Sometimes it is listed directly on the tire. You’ll want to keep your tires inflated to the proper level.
