Hybrid Preventative Maintenance
Your hybrid is no different from any other automobile you’ve driven in the past. It needs factory-scheduled maintenance to prevent future problems. We can maintain your hybrid per the schedule in your owner’s manual, and we’ll make sure all of the systems remain in like-new condition. Remember, hybrids use gas, too, and they have nearly the same systems. Required maintenance includes
- AC system charging
- Battery system maintenance
- Brake system inspections
- Cooling system service
- Fuel-side system maintenance
- Oil changes
- Power steering checks
- Shock and strut replacement
- Suspension services
- Tire rotations
- Transmission services
Hybrid vehicles also need mileage milestone checks at 15,000, 30,000, 60,000, and so on. During these service visits, the vehicle is inspected from the roof to the tires to make sure everything is a-okay, including the belts, hoses, fluids, and filters. Don’t trust your hybrid’s maintenance to anyone other than hybrid specialists, which is what we are here at Automotive Specialists, Inc.
Hybrid Repair Westminster, CO
We are also hybrid repair specialists. In fact, we can overhaul your hybrid vehicle completely if that is necessary. As with any automobile, whether hybrid, diesel, or gasoline, there are some common issues that come with hybrid ownership. One thing that is common with hybrid vehicles is manufacturer recalls. This is to be expected because the technology behind hybrid automobiles is still evolving.
Other common hybrid problems we repair include battery performance issues, catalytic converter failure, and emissions/exhaust system trouble. Another thing to take into account is the braking system, which is different from a standard braking system. When you use the brakes on your hybrid automobile, they charge the electric battery to make it last longer, and we can fix your brakes if they need it.
We work with all hybrid makes and models, including Ford, Honda, Lexus, Nissan, Toyota, and others. You don’t need another automotive service shop for your hybrid vehicle. Our certified technicians have vast experience with hybrid automobiles, so give Automotive Specialists, Inc., in Westminster, CO, a call at 303-848-2901 to schedule your hybrid vehicle’s maintenance or repair visit.
