Hyundai Tucson: If you have a flat tire - What to do in an emergency - Hyundai Tucson Owner's ManualHyundai Tucson: If you have a flat tire

If a tire goes flat while you are driving: 1. Take your foot off the accelerator pedal and let the car slow down while driving straight ahead. Do not apply the brakes immediately or attempt to pull off the road as this may cause a loss of control. When the vehicle has slowed to such a speed that it is safe to do so, brake carefully and pull off the road. Drive off the road as far as possible and park on firm, level ground. If you are on a divided highway, do not park in the median area between the two traffic lanes. 2. When the car is stopped, turn on your emergency hazard flashers, set the parking brake and put the transaxle in "P" (automatic) or reverse (manual transaxle). 3. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle. Be sure they all get out on the side of the vehicle that is away from traffic. 4. Change the tire following the instructions provided on the following pages.
