How do I check the tire pressure on my 2016 Ford Fusion?

I noticed that my steering is a bit off recently and I think it might be because of low tire pressure. How do I go about checking my 2016 Ford Fusion’s tire pressure?

There are two possible ways to check your tire pressure on a 2016 Ford Fusion. The first is the old-fashioned way—with a manual tire gauge.
To check your tire pressure with a manual fuel gauge, simply remove the cap from your tire’s valve stem and press the head of the tire gauge to the opened valve. The tire gauge will give you a reading, and from there you can add air or release air from the valve until you’ve reached the correct tire pressure. Repeat this process for all four wheels.
If your 2016 Ford Fusion is outfitted with a high-line Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), you will be able to see each tire’s current tire pressure, and you can use that info to help you keep your tires properly filled.
If your Fusion is only equipped with a low-line tire pressure warning light system, you won’t receive individualized tire information, and you will need to check your tire pressure manually to ensure that each tire is properly filled.
The correct tire pressure for the 2016 Ford Fusion is between 32 and 37 psi, depending on your particular tires. You can find tire pressure specs for your Fusion in your owner’s manual or on the sticker on your driver’s side door jamb.
You should be checking your tire pressure regularly, preferably at least once a month. Underinflated tires can lead to blowouts, loss of fuel efficiency, and can even cause accidents due to compromised steering capabilities. All of that can cause your maintenance and car insurance costs to spike.
