New cars do need a tune up but not as often as the older cars.

Still new cars need to have air filters replaced, spark plugs replaced, spark plug wires replaced ignition coils replaced etc to help improve the performance of the engine and make the car last longer.

A Tune Up for a car costs between $40.00 to $50.00 and as much as $100.00 to $150.00 depending on how much of a tune up the car needs.

A basic tuneup is cheaper than a more advanced tune up.

A tune up for a car helps your car run better, improves engine performance, improves fuel mileage, ensures your car is in proper operating condition and prevents the possibility of breakdowns.

A full tune-up consists of checking the engine for parts that need cleaning, fixing, or replacing.

Common areas under inspection include filters, spark plugs, belts and hoses, car fluids, rotors, and distributor caps.

Many of these only require a visual inspection or a simple test.

Most dealership service departments advertise their ability to “service all makes and models.”

However, many places get service at competitive prices, ranging from $40.00 to $150.00 for a minimal tune-up that replaces spark plugs and spark plug wires.

Signs that your car needs a tuneup include.

Decreased Fuel Mileage.

Fuel mileage is quite difficult to monitor unless your vehicle has an MPG monitor, but if you've been driving your vehicle a while you should notice this drop in fuel efficiency.
Weird or New Noises.
Diminished Braking Capacity.
Engine Refusing To Start.

Older vehicles typically needed a tuneup every 33,000 miles but newer cars and vehicles don't need a tuneup that often anymore.

A newer vehicle today can go up to 100,000 miles without needing a tuneup.

A tuneup will usually involve the changing of spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter and if your vehicle is equipped with a distributor cap and rotor then those will or should be replaced as well.

Now tuning is very popular among new cars, it is a separate art form. But we should not forget that new cars also need to be kept clean, the interior is no exception. When I bought the Fortador car steam cleaner, I gave up dry cleaning the interior completely and do it at home. A high pressure washer can't do half of what steam cleaners do.

The softclosedoors mercedes system works by using sensors to detect when a door is almost closed, and then automatically pulls it shut the rest of the way. The system is designed to prevent the door from slamming shut, which can be both jarring and damaging to the vehicle over time.
