Cadillac Electric Car Maintenance Schedule 

If you’re driving or thinking about purchasing a Cadillac LYRIQ, it’s important to know that electric vehicle maintenance is different from your typical car maintenance.

There are many benefits to purchasing an EV, such as being eco-friendly and saving money on fuel. Most importantly, the maintenance cost is far less than that of a gas-powered vehicle. Studies show that EV owners spend half as much on routine maintenance compared to gasoline-powered cars. This is because electric cars have fewer parts and don’t require regular maintenance, such as oil changes.

Although you won’t be making frequent visits to your mechanic anymore, that doesn’t mean electric cars don’t require any maintenance; there are still a few things you need to keep your eye on. Here are our top 5 tips for maintaining your electric vehicle:

As part of our Cadillac EV maintenance guide, we have included some of the most important Cadillac EV routine maintenance tasks and when each should be completed. 

Battery Checks

 Regularly checking your battery is one of the most important Cadillac EV routine maintenance tasks. This is especially true if your electric car runs on a lithium-ion pack. While most EV batteries will last 100,000 miles or more, regularly having the battery checked is essential to catching any small issues before they lead to major problems. 


Brake Fluid Replacement

An electric car brake inspection and fluid flush should be performed every 3-5 years. If the brake warning light flashes on your driver information cluster, this may need to be performed sooner. 


Coolant System Maintenance

Another important part of the Cadillac electric car maintenance schedule is addressing the coolant system. Most EVs have special thermal management or cooling systems to prolong the life of the battery. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to see when this is recommended for your particular make and model.


Tire Rotation

EVs are heavier than similarly sized vehicles with an internal combustion engine. That makes tire care even more important. In general, have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. 


Wheel Alignment

Have your wheels aligned every 15,000 miles to improve mile range and reduce tire tread wear.


Air Filter Replacement

Regularly replace the air filter to reduce pollen, road dust, dirt, and other potentially harmful particles. It should be replaced every 2-3 years. If your vehicle has a specialty air filter, you may only need to replace it every 5 years.
