That little tire pressure indicator light comes on and you just keep driving. Next thing you know, you're stuck on the side of the road with a flat. Do you know what to do?
Every driver on the road should know how to change a flat tire.
Yes, even of those of you with roadside service need to learn for yourselves. If you have never had a flat, then count yourself lucky, because most of us, at one point or another will have to deal with this frustrating experience, and, if you are like me, it will almost certainly be on the way to a wedding, interview, or some other formal engagement.
All vehicles sold at any Checkered Flag location, including Checkered Flag Jaguar, Checkered Flag Hyundai, Checkered Flag Honda, and etc. have a fifth, or spare tire. Spares are usually located at either the back of the vehicle, underneath, or under the trunk floor. Each vehicle also comes equipped with a jack similar to the one in the following video. In my Toyota RAV4, like many new vehicles, the jack is located in a different area than the spare. Knowing where all of your required tools are before heading out on the road is imperative.

Remember, as the gentleman points out in the video, your fifth or spare tire can lose air just as your other four tires will. It is important to check your spare periodically. Some newer vehicles including Honda and Toyotas sold at Checkered Flag have sensors that will alert you if your spare tire pressure is low. Check your owner's manual to find out if your vehicle has such a sensor. If your tire pressure sensor goes off, and you are unable to attain the reason, or you have any other concerns with any of your tires, contact your Hampton Roads Auto Service Center as soon as possible.
