  1. General Nissan EV Discussion
    Just a heads up, we are now seeing a huge increase in Nissan Leaf vehicles coming in for servicing that have never had there reduction gear oil inspected nor has it been changed. The oil is supposed to be inspected every service, two things really need to happen at the very least take the...
  2. Renault ZOE
    We got our 2017 Zoe last year (October) all has been going well and had no problems. Looking forward it will be due to be MOT'd in June. We're wondering what experience people have had with general garages? Should I find an EV specialist to do a service / MOT (if so any recommendations in...
  3. Renault ZOE
    While lurking over the last few years I have seen service costs for the Zoe quoted at £65 to £100 on this forum. We have had our Zoe since 2016 and the cost has never been below £100, the fifth year service is due in March and I have been quoted £140 odd at a London Renault dealer with £420 for...
  4. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Hi folks My MY12 Electron has been almost faultless in the five years I've had it. Recently I've noticed the braking feeling at bit strange and it doesn't sound mechanical (in a grating pad way!). It's been more than three years since it had any kind of service so I'm thinking I need to do...
  5. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I was going to buy an Ampera. I've been driving a Prius for 10+ years and though the Ampera was a far better car. I first saw and drove the Ampera at an event called EcoVelocity in 2011. I recently drove several Amperas and concluded they were 'the car for me'. However, I did some further...

  7. Tesla Model 3
    I've a few things that need resolving on my Model 3. Bits of trim need fixing, lumbar support stopped working on passenger and the electric seat adjustment is making strange noises. I'm booked in for a service and I've noted all these things but I'm slightly concerned that it won't be done in...
  8. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    Hi. I have a 66 Nissan Leaf (22k miles), due for a “major service” at a cost of £209 from Nissan. It suspect it also needs replacement tyres and brake pads (maybe even discs...), which I’ve booked it into the local garage for. They haven’t done EV servicing before but are happy to do the “usual...
  9. General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    Hiya I stupidly managed to miss my 2nd year service for my ion. The 3rd and of course the MOT is now due. The dealer I bought it from say I need all the things I missed from the 2nd service doing and have quoted me £360. Including a compulsory battery check, although I have no problems with my...
  10. Renault ZOE
    my 2014 zoe has full service history for every year, my service is due now and the sign in the dashboard doesn't go away. Almost 5 years old and 38k miles. Does it really need the “ Service “ or is it a waste of money and just to look good on paper when im selling it. I cant see what needs...

    Hello, I am a post-grad student who is doing a research project of EV charging for a new company. My focus is about designing an user-friendly experience for on-street charging points user. Had some questions, specially for people who use on-street chargers frequently. Would love your input and...
  12. Volkswagen e-Golf
    In the midst of email and phone call ping pong with VW GB. When is a service not a service? When it's an inspection! According to VW GB only a certified EV authorised centre can do the inspection. Lift bonnet, look at cables, close bonnet, lift up on ramp, check lots and lots of stuff they...
  13. Renault ZOE
    I thought it would be worth getting a better idea of maintenance costs for the Zoe What repairs/replacements have you had done? (if in-warranty, do you know how much it would have cost to do out of warranty?) How much have you paid for servicing at each annual interval?
  14. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    Hello people, I have a 14 month old Leaf on 36 month PCP from Wessex Garages. We've had some confusion over servicing. When we were being sold it, they guy said something about it only needing one service in the 36 month period (the second being due on the day it is returned, so not our...
  15. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    At my service last summer with Nissan they gave me some warnings: - red warning for track rod ends - amber warning for lower arm bush I think they wanted around £500 to fix as I remember, not sure if this was to fix both issues. Anyway I have managed to source the parts online for the Track...
  16. First Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF24 & LEAF30)
    Hi all, I’m based in South Wales but was wondering what everyone’s paying for the second service nationally. Just need to make sure I’m not paying over the odds for it as mine needs the service done next month! Thanks in advance..
  17. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I gave some information on my thread My Turn - Service Steering Column Lock about Underwoods Colchester. I had been using them for services but when I had the Steering Lock error they told me they no longer repaired Amperas, just servicing. So I went to Bristol Street Motors Chingford wjho did...
  18. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Car is currently in for its 5th service at 4 years and 4 months old with 93k on the clock. Annual mileage has dropped so it is the anniversary of the last service. I have been told that all four discs are corroded and pitted. The fronts are the originals but the rears were replaced for it's...
  19. First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I'm considering buying an Ampera to replace my Zoe, but my budget is £10k. That rules out the vast majority of cars, and leaves me with a choice of four currently available: VAUXHALL AMPERA POSITIV 2012 ELECTRIC/RANGE EXTENDER PHEV, FSH, MOT, VGC | eBay Vauxhall Ampera 1.4 i VVT 16v Electron...
  20. BMW i3
    Hi, I'm interested in hearing from BMW i3 REX drivers about their first service. I had my first service (66 plate at 12,600 miles) yesterday for £399 (originally slightly more but I asked for some discount) which included: - Break flood change - Oil change, pollen filter... - Vehicle check (I...
