    Mechanical Systems - Chevy Volt
    The Volt still uses an oil lubricated motor that requires an oil and filter change. It also continues to use radiator coolant (DEX COOL), brake fluid (DOT 3), washer fluid, and automatic transmission fluid (DEXRON VI). It also will require air filter and wiper blade changes.
