Porsche Taycan Service in Newtown Square -near Philadelphia

What service intervals are recommended for a Porsche Taycan?

The new Porsche Taycan totally-electric sedan cuts a dynamic figure as it operates in stealth mode on the streets of Philadelphia, PA. Because of its all-electric powertrain, the maintenance requirements and intervals for the new Taycan are simpler than Porsche's gas-powered internal combustion models. But this unique Porsche sports car still requires its own maintenance at Porsche of the Main Line in Newtown Square, PA. 

Some key service intervals for your all-electric Porsche Taycan

It's recommended that you schedule routine service for your Porsche Taycan every two years or 20,000 miles.  During the basic maintenance visit, we'll replace the cabin air filter to make sure you're getting the benefit of clean, fresh air. We'll also replace your pollen filter. At the same time, we can flush out the old brake fluid and replace it with clean, fresh fluid so you can stop safely around Philadelphia.

Recommended maintenance for your Porsche Taycan tires

Maintaining proper tread depth is one important part of the safety and performance regimen for the tires on your Porsche Taycan. You can do your own simple check with the penny test. Simply insert a penny into the tread opening on each of your tires, putting Lincoln's head in the downward position. If you can still see the top of Lincoln's head, your tread depth is at about 2/32 of an inch. That's too low and means your tires should be replaced.

Why tire rotation matters 

Tire rotation should happen every 5,000 miles. The primary benefit of rotating your ties is that the regular re-positioning of your Porsche Taycan tires helps them wear more evenly, and that causes them to last longer. It also helps them perform better when all four tires are continuously gripping the road in a uniform way. When tread wear is more even, that also helps maintain even tread depth, which supports your Taycan better when cornering.

When should you balance your tires and get a wheel alignment?

We will, of course, balance your tires as part of new tire installation. By the way, the new tire brands we recommend for your Porsche Taycan are Michelin, Pirelli and Dunlop. In addition, your tires may need re-balancing when you feel a pull on your steering wheel as you tour the highways around Philly, or when you notice uneven wear. These two signs may also point to the need for a wheel alignment. Ask us for more details.

How to keep an eye - and an ear - on your brakes

When you hear your Porsche Taycan's brakes squeaking as you step on the brake pedal, the brake pads are probably wearing down. If you hear the sound of grinding, it probably means the pads are gone and the rotors as well. If your Porsche Taycan vibrates when you brake, especially at higher speeds, you almost certainly need new pads and rotors - and that should be done soon.

How can I tell when my Porsche AC needs professional help?

The most obvious sign is simply that the AC isn't blowing cold air. If you see refrigerant leaks, like when grease covers your AC components or puddles of refrigerant pool under your car, have us check the air conditioning system. Hopefully your air conditioning will regain its cool with a simple recharge. The Porsche factory-trained specialists at our service center can diagnose the situation and advise you if your AC needs something more.
