Independent garages servicing EVs

    Why? EV servicing is very little, I paid €76 at a Nissan garage for my service earlier this year, why go elsewhere to save very little?

    Well personally I'm only looking for somewhere to service an ampera (which the main dealers won't touch) but I suppose it's more relevant for phev owners than for Bevs.

    No harm in seeing what competition is out there either, I've not heard many positive stories from main dealers in relation to ICEs

    As a follow up to this I have recently used bmg and was suitably impressed.

    When you say service, what do you mean?

    any garage can change the pollen filters, brake fluid and air con re-gas.

    If you need specific EV items looked at like the HV battery etc then your probably stick with the main dealer for the moment.

    James Golden in Cork looks after my Ampera.

    He did a lot of his EV training on an Ampera.
