Consumer Review Video - 2013 Nissan Leaf SL Electric

Common problems and easy repairs on a 2013 Leaf

The 2013 Nissan Leaf SL is a relatively easy vehicle to maintain. The battery terminals and bracket have unobstructed access, which will make for reliable jumpstarts and replacements. Changing the headlights won’t be a problem as all of the bulbs are accessible without the use of tools. Monitoring the brake fluid will be easy to do on account of the open access to the reservoir.

However, the 2013 Nissan Leaf SL does have a few difficulties. Connecting your phone via Bluetooth may be a problem as you’ll have to use voice prompts to do so. Tools will be needed to remove the entire rear bulb housing for access to the tail lights, which won’t allow for reliable bulb changes. The provided compressor kit may not be able to fix a flat tire if it is severely damaged.
