2013 Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2013 Nissan Leaf

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Leaf's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Nissan, from back to front. It’s one of your Leaf’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 Nissan Leaf, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Nissan's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2013 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Nissan Leaf drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2013 Nissan Leaf drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • Can Nissan service save me money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.

  • How often should I come in for Nissan Leaf differential service? We recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine. Your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
