Many people are now leaning towards greener Hybrid vehicles in an effort to combat climate change and to offset rising fuel cost, hybrid cars are becoming more and more popular. With so many drivers switching over to these environmentally friendly vehicles issues are beginning to arise not only with owners, but with mechanics and garages as well. These issues center on the servicing of the cars which can be so different yet similar to the more traditional fuel based vehicles.
All David Cogan Auto Electrics technicians are fully trained to deal with hybrids. However, many owners may still be unsure how to handle the hybrid's unique needs when it comes to maintenance. We advise owners and potential owners of hybrid cars to look into the servicing needs of their new cars, our David Cogan Auto Electircs service advisors are on hand to help with any questions or concerns you may have.
Unlike traditional vehicles where owners were able to do much of the routine maintenance themselves in their own home garage. Changing the oil, checking the brake pads and replacing the battery were common enough occurrences and posed little risk. Hybrid cars on the other hand are a whole different story and many do it yourselfers are better to let experienced and trained professionals take a look at their vehicles. Often mishandling of the Hybrid car's engine components can lead to serious if not fatal accidents.
Hybrid is more than an internal combustion engine; it also houses a complex electrical system that many, including seasoned mechanics, are just not aware of. It is this high voltage and power system that many are finding problematic when service on the car is required.
While it is unwise to perform even the most rudimentary service on your Hybrid, you may find out that the local garages are either unwilling or unable to deal with it as well. More and more garages are training their staff to perform the required Hybrid car repair as this car is no longer thought as a passing novelty but the problem still exists. Owners of hybrid vehicles are advised to check their repairing garage have the necessary knowledge to safely conduct the operations required to service hybrid vehicles.
