How much air pressure should be in the tires?

The right tire pressure is crucial for a lot of things, including fuel economy, handling, preventing premature tire wear and more. The key to keeping your tires aired up properly is to know how much they should have. Here’s what you need to know:

  • If you drive an LX, an LX-P or an SE, you should have 30 PSI in the front and rear.

  • If you drive an EX or EX-L, you should have 32 PSI in the front and rear.
