Just a thought - if you're having unusually cold weather where you are, that could account for reduced tire pressure. Tire pressure goes down about 1 psi for every 10 degree drop in temperature.

Hey, heyheyjude. I bought a 2008 Rav4 in September. My light came on after two weeks only to find out I had only 20 pounds of pressure in each tire. I put the right amount of air in the tires. A week after that my car started vibration. I have been back to the deal twice, called the main toyota line, just to find out no one wants to do anything about it. I am going to a toyo tire dealer Tuesday to see what they say. I love my car just don't like the rough ride.

tidester, i DO live in the mountains of NC and we absolutely had a major drop in temp. for about 3 days. I didn't know that about tires; I'm one of these women who doesn't know how things work, just wants them to....
Thank you so much for the reply; that makes me feel better. Now if I could only figure out how to get the heat working without the air conditioning coming on!
I just hate that I bought a brand new car, am leaving town in 2 days and will have to find time to take the car and get the tires filled with air. But, your post makes sense and I thank you so much!

minster54, thanks so much for sharing your experience. Do you live in a cold region, also? I'm sorry you're going through so much....It's ridiculous to pay so much for a new car to have trouble like that, isn't it? I haven't encountered any vibration yet, but you can bet I'll post it if I do! PLEASE let me know how your situation comes out. I'm glad to know you're contacting all these Toyota folks! Good luck!
