EV Maintenance

Because the EV motor contains a lot less moving parts and less fluids, EV owners typically spend about a third of the money that gas powered auto owners do on maintenance. EV owners never have to pay for oil changes, cooling system flushes, tune-ups, transmission servicing, and replacing the drive belts, spark plugs or air filter.

Maintenance by an EV owner includes replacing the wiper blades and cabin air filter, and filling the windshield washer fluid.

Tasks to be completed by trained technicians include tire rotation, checking the coolant levels in the power inverter, accessory power, charger modules, and battery. Techs should also check for fluid leaks, inspect the suspension, steering, brakes and drive shafts.
