As if the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV didn’t already have enough going for it, the vehicle’s owner’s manual has spilled a pleasant surprise. According to the Bolt EV’s owner’s manual, the vehicle will require almost zero maintenance for the first 150,000 miles.
You can do a lot of things and go to a lot of places in 150,000 miles. That’s a big, significant number for drivers who despise keeping up on regularly scheduled maintenance.
Specifically, the Bolt EV’s manual recommends tire rotations every 7,500 miles, cabin air filter replacements every 22,500 miles and a coolant flush at 150,000 miles. Regardless of mileage, the manual also recommends brake fluid changes every five years. That’s it.
The potential to have an extraordinarily low cost of ownership is very good with the 2017 Bolt EV, knowing it doesn’t take much to rotate the tires and change an air filter on your own, which normally cost around $20.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV should be arriving very shortly to its first customers on the west coast, while the entire nation will see a roll out through 2017. As a simple refresher, the Bolt EV will go 238 miles on a single charge and can be purchased for as low as $29,995 after federal tax credits.
