Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2014 Nissan Leaf

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2014 Nissan Leaf?

Here’s Why 2014 Nissan Leaf Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Nissan Leaf, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Leaf. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Leaf, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2014 Nissan Leaf maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Leaf perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2014 Nissan Leaf problems later.

Overview of Essential Nissan Leaf Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Nissan Leaf 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 Leaf's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2014 Nissan Leaf? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Leaf) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Leaf won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Nissan Leaf running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2014 Leaf in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2014 Nissan Leaf? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Leaf suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Leaf 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 Nissan Leaf's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Nissan Leaf maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Nissan Leaf engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Leaf? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2014 Nissan Leaf maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Nissan Leaf. Get answers to common Nissan Leaf maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Leaf? You know your Nissan Leaf better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Nissan Leaf need high mileage oil? 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 Nissan Leaf engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Leaf in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
