Your Guide to 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Chevrolet Bolt EV, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Bolt EV has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Bolt EV, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Bolt EV perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Bolt EV

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Bolt EV's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Chevrolet Bolt EV battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Chevrolet Bolt EV won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV engine. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 Bolt EV, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Bolt EV suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Chevrolet Bolt EV steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Bolt EV's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Chevrolet Bolt EV maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Get answers to common Chevrolet Bolt EV maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Bolt EV alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Bolt EV? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Bolt EV engines.
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Chevrolet Bolt EV, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
