Like every other car, truck & SUV, having regularly scheduled maintenance on your electric vehicle will help ensure your electric vehicle’s longevity. A battery inspection should be done every six months. In this check-up, we will inspect for leaks and check to see how your battery is performing.
Your tires should be rotated every six months to prevent uneven wear and tear. This will help extend the life of all four tires. Your brakes and brake fluid should be inspected and changed after 22,000 miles or two years. The last major thing we keep an eye out for is the coolant system. Your vehicle’s coolant should be changed once every 150,000 miles or every five years. Whichever comes first.
Now and then, the manufacturer will find a way to improve your vehicle’s performance through the software. Often, these will be done through a recall campaign. When this is the case, the software update will be at no cost to you.
The biggest thing we look for is leaks in the battery. Although we hardly ever find any signs of a leak, we must address any premature wear and tear signs before they are irreversible. This is also a matter of safety, but to keep your mind at ease, please remember that.
Rotating your tires every six months will allow your tires to wear evenly and should extend the life of all four tires. When tires wear down evenly, you won’t notice your vehicle pulling off to one side on its own.
If you notice your vehicle pulling to one side or the other on its own, this means your vehicle is out of alignment and needs to be adjusted. Failure to do this on time can result in damage to your vehicle’s suspension. Rotating your tires on time will help prevent this from happening.
Your vehicle’s brakes should be inspected after 22,000 miles or two years. Your vehicle’s brakes use a regenerative braking process, turning friction into power for your vehicle. You should expect your brakes to last longer than traditional braking systems as long as you use clean brake fluid.
Your coolant system should be checked every 150,000 miles or five years. Electric cars with a thermal management system just as they do in traditional vehicles.
