Unique to Hybrids

Hybrid battery repairs are a common concern.  In addition to various failure mechanisms they have a limited number of charge and discharge cycles, slowly loosing capacity with use.  Our services include inspection, conditioning, and replacement of the hybrid battery pack as well as the auxiliary battery.  With a bad cell or other failure we’ll need to be replaced with a new or rebuild unit.  If they’ve become weak leading to poor fuel mileage our battery conditioning service may be an option for extending their useful lifetime.

Our hybrid car repair specialists are also experts when it comes to the electric motor that hybrids and other types of electric vehicles add.  Plus the more complicated electrical and electronic systems with regenerative braking, an inverter, and advanced displays.  Did you know that most hybrid cars have two cooling systems?  One for the gas engine and one for the inverter and transaxle and/or transmission.

Overall Repairs and Maintenance

All-electric vehicles dispense with engines and fuel systems.  But hybrids still have an engine, transmission, braking system, suspension, air conditioning and so on.  Our technicians and master mechanics take care of it all — from oil changes to rebuilding transmissions.  Without the premium mark-ups some dealerships and garages add in.  Our expert services include

  • inverter coolant check & service and
  • transaxle service

as well as

  • warning light code scanning and diagnosis,
  • cooling fan and radiator replacements,
  • water pump replacement,
  • clutch repairs,
  • air conditioning and heating,
  • brake repair,
  • engine repair,
  • and much more.
