2012 Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Repair & Service

2012 Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Service

Your Leaf’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Nissan, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Nissan Leaf, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Nissan's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 Nissan Leaf drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Leaf might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Nissan Leaf.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Nissan Leaf? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • How often should I come in for Nissan Leaf differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
