How often should I service my 2017 Nissan Leaf?
When it comes to your Nissan Leaf, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Leaf has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Leaf maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 Nissan Leaf!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Leaf's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Nissan Leaf problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Nissan Leaf and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Nissan Leaf running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 Leaf in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2017 Nissan Leaf? We can help with that, too!
