EV Maintenance in Sarasota, FL

Did you know that choosing an all-electric vehicle over a gas-powered one is environmentally friendly and budget-friendly in the long run? You heard that right!

At Gettel Nissan, we take great pride in offering our customers a wide selection of new and used EVs.

Before you do, we encourage you to learn more about the benefits of owning an EV and how it can save you money on maintenance costs.

How Does Owning an EV Lower My Maintenance Costs?

When you switch to an EV, say goodbye to traditional engine upkeep. Moreover, as highlighted by Car and Driver, EVs also have the added benefit of regenerative braking, which can significantly reduce the need for brake pads and rotor replacements compared to gas-powered vehicles. Also, according to Green Cars, the average cost of servicing an EV is one-third less than that of a gas-powered car. This does not even take into consideration any potential costs covered by an EV battery warranty or a new car warranty.

What EV-Specific Services Should I Schedule?

Your EV will require routine maintenance, which includes traditional services like changing the cabin air filter, flushing fluids, replacing windshield wipers and rotating tires. Additionally, there are specific services for EVs that help keep the vehicle operating smoothly and protect any warranties. For instance, due to the weight of EV batteries, it is recommended that drivers schedule regular tire inspections and suspension services more frequently than they would for a gas-powered vehicle. To learn more about the specific services that your EV requires and when they should be scheduled, please refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Lastly, electric vehicles have powerful electrical and cooling systems that prevent battery overheating.
