What is the maintenance schedule for the 2020 Nissan Leaf?

Your Guide to 2020 Nissan Leaf Scheduled Maintenance

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? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Leaf, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 Nissan Leaf!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Nissan Leaf problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Leaf Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2020 Nissan Leaf and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 2020 Nissan Leaf. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Nissan Leaf engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2020 Leaf. 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 2020 Nissan Leaf? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Leaf can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. Components within your Nissan Leaf's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Nissan Leaf maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2020 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.

Questions About 2020 Nissan Leaf Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 Nissan Leaf. Get answers to common Nissan Leaf maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Nissan Leaf alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Nissan Leaf need high mileage oil? If your Nissan Leaf has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • 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.
