Haven't been able to find anything in paperwork or handbook for when Leaf should be serviced. Perhaps it is in small print somewhere?

So from looking around other threads I have established what is hopefully correct below:-

1st service, due after 1 year or 18,000 miles.
2nd service, due after 2 years or 36,000 miles.

What about the next services, is it always +1 year or +18,000 miles ?

I am going to programme the servicing into the car reminder system on the onboard menu. We do a lot of miles so that is going to trigger our servicing requirements.

As do other Makers Nissan puts the service intervals only in the Service book and don't put it in the drivers handbook. Not very helpful!.
There are two services shown. Intermediate and Full. 12 months or 18000. and 24 months and 36000. . There are also a couple of 'Warranty' inspections listed, and additional maintenance at 60 months/64000 miles and 48 months/36000 miles.

It's a good read before bedtime.

I'll be servicing my LEAF until the 4th year (so there is no come back from Nissan if I have any problems with the battery within the first 5 years).

From then on I don't think I'll bother servicing it. I'll just get the brake fluid flushed by a local garage for a fraction of the cost.

The only reason that ALL manufacturers give longer warranties is to tie in owners to Dealer servicing. (even though EU rules allow other servicing )
