Your Guide to 2018 Nissan Leaf Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Leaf to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Leaf has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2018 Nissan Leaf!

Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Leaf running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Nissan Leaf problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Leaf Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 Nissan Leaf to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Could your 2018 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Leaf battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Leaf) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Leaf won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Nissan Leaf engine. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Leaf, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Nissan Leaf? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Nissan Leaf steering and suspension 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. Components within your Nissan Leaf's steering system require 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan Leaf’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Leaf? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Nissan Leaf maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2018 Nissan Leaf Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Nissan Leaf. Get answers to common Nissan Leaf maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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 Nissan dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Nissan Leaf to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
