Chevrolet Electric Vehicle Service

Expert Chevy EV Service in Old Saybrook, CT

 Does an all-electric car need to be serviced? The answer is yes. However, it won't need as much maintenance as a gas-powered vehicle. Since EVs (electric vehicles) don't burn gas or use oil, they don't need radiators to keep them cool or oil to reduce friction. If you have a Chevy EV, it's good to know that there's a service center in Old Saybrook, CT with technicians that know about electric vehicles. Grossman Chevrolet is your one-stop shop for everything Chevy, and we can service or repair your EV. 

Your Chevrolet EV needs much less long-term maintenance than a gas-powered car. That's because electric vehicles eliminate over two-dozen mechanical components that would normally require periodic service. EVs do not need tune-ups, oil changes, cooling system flushes, transmission servicing, spark plug changes, or drive belt replacements.

Skilled Technicians Who Know about Electric Vehicles

 However, Chevy EVs do require some service, and it helps to have it done at a place that understands the needs of electric vehicles. The skilled mechanics at Grossman Chevrolet have the training and experience to diagnose and fix your electric car. We also know about the parts and components in your EV and how often they need servicing.
