Routine Maintenance for Electric Vehicles

Schedule Service

Electric vehicles (EVs) require routine maintenance just like any other vehicle, but the lack of an internal combustion engine leads to some key differences. Our Nissan service center in Madison is here to help with some common services to maintain your prized EV.

Tire Rotations and Inspections

Just like traditional vehicles, electric vehicles require regular tire rotations and inspections so each tire is wearing evenly and properly inflated. Our service center recommends rotating your tires every 6,000-8,000 miles, though your mileage may vary based on driving habits and the typical terrain you frequent.

Brake Inspections

EVs use regenerative braking, which can reduce the wear and tear on traditional brakes, but it’s still important to regularly inspect and repair your brakes if necessary, so they continue to function properly and safely.

Battery Maintenance

The battery is one of the most critical components of an electric vehicle, so it’s important to give it the proper care and attention. Battery maintenance generally includes checking the battery coolant level, inspecting the battery for damage, and confirming that the battery is charging properly.

Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Like the cabin air filter in a traditional gas-powered vehicle, the filter in your EV should be replaced every 15,000 to 30,000 miles, two years, or if the filter is noticeably dirty upon inspection. Replacing your vehicle’s air filter is an effective way to keep the air quality in your cabin fresh, preserving the comfort for you and all passengers.
