What is the maintenance schedule for the 2013 Nissan Leaf?
Take care of your Nissan Leaf and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Leaf could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Leaf maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Nissan Leaf!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Leaf perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Nissan Leaf problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Nissan Leaf for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Leaf. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Could your 2013 Nissan Leaf be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Leaf battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Nissan Leaf won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Nissan Leaf running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 Leaf. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Nissan Leaf.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Leaf 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Nissan Leaf suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Nissan Leaf's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Nissan Leaf services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Leaf cooling, heating, and climate control system.
