Hybrid Repair at
Ayers knows Hybrids.
As we see the influx of new car sales going toward the purchase of hybrid vehicles, I am in awe of how little awareness these new hybrid car owners have of the servicing of the vehicle. Ayers Automotive technicians have attended many hours of hybrid servicing and repair classes! In fact, more than any other hybrid repair shop in Santa Barbara!
Sure you probably don't need to change the oil as often BUT you do need to follow the manufacturers recommendations and if nothing else get the brakes checked! We are seeing that more and more hybrids are going through front brakes faster than ever before. You need to make sure the tires are at the right pressures to get the mileage you expect and you should monitor the batteries life so you don't go out one morning the day after the warranty expires and the car is dead! Seen it happen, believe me!
Any questions or concerns you may have about your hybrid vehicle, please give Ayers Automotive a call.
Tires, braking systems and other items on hybrids are different and linked to the economy and a key factor in its mileage costs. True that overall maintenance on a hybrid is many times less than a conventional vehicle, but lack of maintenance can be costly
Based on current hybrids running largely on their gasoline engines, a hybrid vehicle owner will have to abide to a similar maintenance schedule to fully gasoline-powered vehicles. Oil/filter changes and other routine checks remain important but may be undertaken at longer intervals since the gas engine is relieved by the electric powerplant.
