Nissan Ariya EV Recall: A Rare Case of Oil Leak in Electric SUVs



Nissan is issuing a recall for a limited quantity of its 2023 Ariya electric sport utility vehicles due to an uncommon issue for electric vehicles: a leak of oil.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced a recall affecting a small number of only 84 vehicles. These vehicles are believed to have defective O-rings in their engine components that could result in oil seeping into the engine. This can cause excessive wear and create debris.

An accumulation of waste and oil can lead to the activation of a protective mode in the vehicle, potentially leading to a decrease in engine performance.

It is uncertain if this problem could cause the familiar stains on driveways or garage floors that often come from traditional gas-powered vehicles. Typically, gasoline engines with oil leaks might burn off the extra oil, resulting in increased emissions from the exhaust, but that is clearly not what's happening in this situation.

According to documents pertaining to the recall, the vehicles in question were manufactured from May 30th of last year through to February 27th of the current year. It is believed that this problem is isolated to these vehicles alone.

Vehicle owners will receive notification regarding the scheduling for taking their cars to the dealers, where they will receive a front motor assembly replacement at no cost. Please note that this procedure may require up to 10.5 hours to complete.

Electric vehicles typically don't need oil changes as part of regular maintenance, but it's worth noting that numerous EV motors, including the entire Ultium lineup from General Motors, utilize oil cooling systems. In 2022, Mahle, a parts supplier, unveiled what it claims to be a "wear-free" motor that also features an integrated oil cooling mechanism.

Data collected over multiple years by Consumer Reports supports the assertion that maintaining electric vehicle (EV) motor systems tends to be more cost-effective compared to traditional gas engines. Consumer Reports has repeatedly discovered that both EVs and plug-in hybrids incur lower maintenance and repair expenses. However, recent findings suggest a shift, indicating that plug-in vehicles may encounter more issues, while hybrids may present fewer problems. Nonetheless, recalls demanding extensive labor, similar to the one mentioned, are not commonplace for electric vehicles.
