If you are considering the purchase of or already own a hybrid vehicle, it’s important to work with a trusted hybrid repair shop when it comes to maintenance and repairs. That’s because these engine systems are quite complex and require a greater knowledge of how the engine system works so that hybrid repairs and hybrid maintenance can be completed properly. At Hood's Auto, our team of certified hybrid specialists can assist you when it comes to caring for your hybrid vehicle.

Things You Should Know About Hybrid Maintenance and Repair

Hybrid vehicles, like your Toyota Prius or your Honda Accord Hybrid, combine a gasoline engine with one or more electric motors. While you are driving, the car is producing energy and making decisions on which fuel source to use (gas or electricity). Because your hybrid vehicle is designed to switch to the most economical power source automatically, you end up using less gasoline than you would with a conventional vehicle. Though the result is less wear and tear on the traditional engine components, this does not mean your hybrid car doesn’t need to be maintained regularly.

 

Our technicians have completed hybrid-specific training courses and we have hybrid-specific tools in our arsenal of automotive tools. Our shop in St. Louis is well equipped for any hybrid-related repairs ranging from oil changes and basic maintenance procedures to more sophisticated servicing such as hybrid transmission work, battery issues, or inverter replacement.

 

As a hybrid owner, you know your vehicle is different from other vehicles that share the road with you. Your vehicle has unique components and we understand this difference. At Hood's Auto, we’ve developed a unique and exclusive battery pack conditioning service just for your hybrid that will provide:
