At Meadowland of Carmel, we ensure that the residents of Carmel Hamlet, New York, and nearby areas get the friendliest and most convenient vehicle services. Our family-owned dealership operates on traditional etiquette and practices, but we stay updated on new technologies to deliver excellent overall service.
Our dealership offers complete brake service, and we use original equipment manufacturer parts from Mopar. We have certified technicians who inspect individual parts, such as rotors, brake pads, and calipers, to ensure that they function optimally. If we find damaged parts that need replacement, our technicians exchange them with Magneti Marelli Brakes by Mopar for ultra-quiet braking. Our brake service includes brake flushing and brake pad resurfacing or replacement. Since the brake system uses hydraulics, you should flush the fluid regularly and replace it with fluid approved by the manufacturer and the Department of Transportation (DoT).
Consider a brake inspection after four to six months or after 5,000 to 7,000 miles. However, it would be best to have us perform a brake inspection when you bring your car in for other essential maintenance, especially during tire rotation, because our technicians will remove all wheels.
As part of regular car maintenance, the primary goal of transmission service is to drain old fluids and replace them with new fluid. The fluid lubricates the moving parts inside the transmission. It varies depending on your vehicle because automatic cars use automatic transmission fluid while manual-transmission cars use various liquids.
We recommend performing transmission service every 30,000 to 60,000 miles for manual transmission and 60,000 to 100,000 for automatic transmission. However, if your vehicle emits a burning smell or a squealing noise when shifting gears — whether it has automatic or manual transmission — then it is time to schedule a maintenance appointment at our local dealership.
Motor oil serves many different functions in your vehicle’s engine. Those functions include cooling the engine, preventing corrosion, lubricating the engine’s moving parts, and acting as a sealant against debris. Regular oil changes directly impact the way your vehicle runs. Depending on the type of car, you may need to change both the oil and the oil filter every three months or after 3,000 miles.
Oil filters help trap particles inside your vehicle’s engine. Although the filters last longer than the oil, we recommend changing both at the same time to prevent any clogs and to enhance your engine’s efficiency. Our technicians can help you choose the best oil for your vehicle and perform leak repairs while showing you how to check for signs of oil leaks.
We want you to remain safe while you’re on the road, so having functional wipers is a safety precaution. Worn-out wipers can be hazardous to you, other drivers, and pedestrians, especially during dusty, rainy, and snowy conditions. Functioning wipers prepare you for such situations.
Some of the common signs of excessive wear on your vehicle’s wipers include the following:
- Loss of flexibility in the bends or rubbers.
- Cracks in a wiper arm.
- Tears in the blades.
- Screeching sounds.
- Ragged edges.
When you bring your vehicle to our service department in Carmel Hamlet, New York, we will first inspect your wipers and their blades for any signs of wear or damage. If any of your wipers requires replacement, you can order the part by filling out our online form.
Keep your car stable on the road with our tire services. When you bring your car to our dealership, we will first verify that the vehicle’s tire pressure is at manufacturer’s recommended level. We also ensure even treadwear on all four wheels by regularly rotating their positions on your car. Additionally, we will conduct wheel alignment to reduce tire wear. If you have a flat tire, we can repair or replace it for you. We carry Goodyear tires.
After inspection, our technicians can discuss the services your vehicle needs. Our technicians may also offer valuable tips for identifying and deciphering common tire problems, such as bulges, bubbles, or damaged sidewalls. Two factors determine when you should consider replacing your tires: age and wear. Replace all tires every six years, regardless of treadwear or condition.

Battery Testing and Replacement
A weak or old battery can damage your engine and ruin your plans, especially if you are planning to take an out-of-state road trip. Weak batteries add extra stress to the vehicle’s charging system, which includes the motor and starter.
Some of the signs of a dying car battery include the following:
- A hard start, especially during cold weather.
- Dim headlights and other electrical issues.
- A smell of rotten eggs from the hood.
- Corroded connectors with white, ashy substances.
- Cracking or swelling on the battery case.
An average car battery can function for three to five years before needing replacement. Bringing your vehicle to our dealership for regular maintenance ensures good battery health and overall optimal performance.
