What is a hybrid service?

From routine oil changes and tune-ups to more complex repairs and diagnostic work, our team of certified technicians has the knowledge and experience to keep your hybrid car running at its best.

Servicing a hybrid vehicle requires a slightly different approach to servicing traditional petrol and diesel powered vehicles. This is due to the high-voltage batteries that work alongside the engine to power the vehicle. Hybrid vehicles also have more of a variety of parts than gasoline or diesel powered vehicles. This means that mechanics have to take extra care when examining the vehicle.

When should you get your hybrid vehicle serviced?

We recommend that you service your hybrid vehicle at least once a year, or once every 10,000 km. This will allow for the smooth operation of various components in your vehicle. We recommend too that you regularly check your vehicle’s oil to determine if it is running low or needs replacement. When oil is due for replacement, it will be no longer be clear and become a darker colour.

Many customers get their vehicles serviced at the same time as their WOF. This saves the hassle of bringing your car to the mechanics twice.
