There’s nothing quite like the feeling of pulling away from the dealership inside a brand new car, from the fresh scent of the interior to knowing you’re the first driver to cruise it around Willow Grove, Abington, and Horsham, PA.
Despite its taught suspension and pristine engine, you’ll eventually need to bring it back for its first routine checkup. For new vehicles, you should plan to schedule service between the first 5,000 and 10,000 miles.

New cars require the same level of care and attention as any other vehicle on the road. As the old adage goes; “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. This means staying on top of the basics: oil, tires, and brakes.
For consistently smooth acceleration, make it a point to change your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. As your vehicle’s engine slowly conditions or “breaks in” to life on the road, clean motor oil plays a critical role. Not only does it help lubricate moving parts, but it also cleans the engine’s internal system from dirt, moisture, and other particles.
Next, our service techs will rotate and inspect each of your tires. This makes sure your tires wear evenly, which can help prevent an unexpected flat. A healthy set of tires also decreases the pressure placed on your brakes and suspension system.
Speaking of your brakes, while your vehicle is on the lift, we’ll look at your braking system. Areas we inspect include:
The lifespan of these components will depend heavily on both your driving style and local road conditions. If you experience your vehicle pulling to one side or hear any odd noises, book an appointment right away.
