Regularly scheduled service is a crucial part of the longevity of a vehicle’s lifespan. Electric vehicles are no different. An electric vehicle battery should be inspected every six months to locate any potential damage and assess performance.
Your tires should be rotated every six months to prevent uneven wear and tear. This will help extend the life of all four tires. Like in a traditional vehicle, your electric vehicle’s brakes and brake fluids should be inspected and/or changed after 22,000 miles or two years. Lastly, your coolant system should be changed after five years or 150,000 miles.
Much like your Smartphone, your Electric vehicle will occasionally need a software update. These updates may be part of a recall campaign and will often better your vehicle’s performance.
The most important part of Electric vehicle maintenance is the battery inspection. Although leaks are uncommon, as a precaution, we assess any damage to the battery and address any problems before they progress. This is also a matter of safety, but to keep your mind at ease, please remember that.
Rotating your tires will ensure they wear evenly and lengthen the lifespan. Evenly worn tires will make your ride smoother. Without a tire rotation, you risk uneven wheel alignment, which causes your vehicle to veer off to the left or right while driving. This could also lead to more expensive suspension damage.
Electric vehicles are equipped with a regenerative braking system, which will extend the life of your brakes. With the regenerative braking system, your brakes and brake fluids should be inspected every 22,000 miles or two years. We all know how bad New England roads can get. New brake fluid helps to absorb moisture and prevent rust, allowing you to stay in control.
Your coolant system should be checked every five years.
