For reasons of safety and optimal performance, all vehicles require professional maintenance. This holds true for electric vehicles, even though they have fewer automotive parts compared to gasoline or diesel vehicles.
Electric vehicles require specialized maintenance for both their components and integrated complex systems, including checking antifreeze levels, battery performance, hydraulic braking system, charging system, and more.
Furthermore, electric cars are heavier than their gas-powered counterparts. As a result, tires, wheels, and suspensions undergo twice the workload. Conducting a geometry analysis is also recommended to ensure everything complies with standards and is free from the risk of premature wear. In summary, all these components need regular inspection and care by a professional auto shop.

Electric Car Maintenance and Auto Electrician
It’s evident that the electrical system is fundamental to the operation of an electric vehicle. This complex system is a technological feat that powers various components such as the starter, inverter, and battery.

In any case, if one or more dashboard indicators do not light up correctly, it is likely that there is a malfunction in the electronic and electrical system.
How Much Does Electric Car Maintenance Cost ?
This is a frequently asked question, but it is not simple to provide a precise answer. At Fairview Tire AutoPro, diagnostic and inspection services are billed hourly.
We do not perform diagnostics over the phone based on customer ideas or suggestions. Indeed, this can lead to unsatisfactory customer experiences.
However, be aware that maintenance on an electric vehicle is cheaper than on a gasoline or diesel vehicle. One might think that electric vehicles, equipped with advanced technology, have higher maintenance costs.
Yet, the principle of regenerative braking, the reduction of the number of spare parts, and other factors make the maintenance of an electric car simpler. Indeed, electric vehicles have fewer mechanical components to repair. However, they have many more electronic components.
