How to check Chevrolet Sonic tire pressure?

To check Chevrolet Sonic tire pressure you will first need to determine its recommended tire pressure for the front and rear tires. Take off tire valve caps and use a tire pressure gauge to check tire inflation in every tire. Adjust Chevrolet Sonic tire pressure to its recommended levels.

Recheck tire pressure to make sure all tires are properly inflated. Replace the valve stem caps. Make sure to check tire pressure when tires are "cold" and have not been driven for at least 3 hours. Remember that the front and rear tire pressures may differ.
