Your Guide to Servicing an Electric Car

servicing an electric vehicleNissan offers one electric car: the Nissan LEAF. The name, which stands for Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car, is just one way the vehicle sets itself apart from the competition.

As the first electric car to win European Car of the Year in 2010, the Nissan LEAF has been making waves for years, but why do people love the vehicle so much? Maybe it’s the amazing lack of necessary maintenance required for the vehicle.

The 2015 Nissan LEAF Service and Maintenance guide is available online now for anyone interested in taking a closer look at what’s required to keep the vehicle in perfect condition. But if reading the owner’s manual isn’t really your thing, we’ve outlined some of the best features for you below.

Your First Year of Maintenance

During the first year of maintenance on a gas-run car, you’ll likely need two oil changes with oil filter replacements, a tire rotation, engine air filter replacement, in-cabin air filter replacement, brake fluid replacement, brake pad replacement, rotor replacement, and a vehicle inspection.

So what can you expect in an electric Nissan vehicle? How about never getting an oil change again? It’s a reality with the Nissan LEAF. In your first year of maintenance, you’ll get a tire rotation, brake fluid replacement, in-cabin microfilter replacement, and a vehicle inspection. You can expect your second year (up to 30,000 miles or 24 months) to be nearly the same. In fact, brake and tire maintenance and care is all of the maintenance your vehicle should require ever.

So what will you do with your spare time when you’re not waiting at the gas station to fill up your tank? What about the time forgone to the service center? Well, you can spend more time enjoying your eco-friendly lifestyle.

Where to Get Your Electric Nissan Serviced

Not only are they equipped with the latest diagnostics, special tools, and service techniques, but they’ll also only use genuine Nissan parts that meet Nissan’s standards of excellence.
