What is the correct tire pressure for Volkswagen Passat?

Recommended tire pressure for Volkswagen Passat tires is 28 psi to 45 psi, set by Volkswagen manufacturer and based on model's original equipment tire size to optimize vehicle performance, fuel efficiency and safety.

Where do I find the recommended tire pressure for Volkswagen Passat?

Volkswagen Passat recommended tire pressure can be found in owner's manual, on a tire placard on the side of driver's door or door jam, on the trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Tire inflation will be listed in psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kilopascals).

How to check Volkswagen Passat tire pressure?

To check Volkswagen Passat 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 Volkswagen Passat tire pressure to its recommended levels. If overinflated, let some air out by pressing down the center plunger in the valve stem. If underinflated, add air with tire inflator. 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.

What is proper tire pressure for Volkswagen Passat replacement tires?

If you replace Volkswagen Passat original equipment tires with non-stock tires that have different size or load capacity, new tires may require substantially different inflation pressures. Use our Replacement Tire Pressure Calculator to find proper tire inflation when switching to a different tire size.

What is optimal winter tire pressure for Volkswagen Passat?

Tire pressure fluctuates with ambient temperatures. When temperatures drop, Volkswagen Passat tires may lose approximately 1 psi of air pressure for every 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease. During winter Volkswagen Passat tires can be inflated 3 to 5 psi above the recommended tire pressure settings to compensate for lower temperatures. Do not overinflate above the maximum tire inflation pressure value indicated on tire sidewall. Make sure to check tire pressure regularly in the winter to keep tires properly inflated for a safe ride on snow and icy roads.

Is my Volkswagen Passat equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)?

If your Volkswagen Passat is built after 2007, it is most likely equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Check owner's manual to see if your model has TPMS.

Why is my Volkswagen Passat TPMS warning light on?

If Volkswagen Passat TPMS warning light comes on and stays on, it means at least one of the tires is underinflated. If TPMS warning light goes on and off, fluctuating ambient temperatures may be the reason. If Volkswagen Passat TPMS warning light flashes for 90 seconds when you start the vehicle and then remains illuminated, the TPMS is not functioning properly and you should have it serviced.

How to reset Volkswagen Passat Tire Pressure Monitoring System?

To reset TPMS on Volkswagen Passat, follow the instructions in owner's manual. If TPMS will not reset, there may be a problem with tire pressure sensors.
