At Hodgson Toyota we love servicing your hybrid car and keeping it in perfect condition for the road. All our hybrids are given a Hybrid Electric Service which specifically checks your hybrid battery to ensure optimum performance and long life. Our guide below answers the most frequently asked questions about Toyota car servicing and hybrid maintenance.
Hybrid vehicles contain highly advanced technology, but that doesn’t make them more expensive to maintain. As with all our vehicles, regular Toyota maintenance is key. Hybrid engines need regular oil changes but no special servicing is required for the hybrid car battery or hybrid system itself.Thanks to ‘regenerative braking’, hybrid brake pads last, on average, longer than conventional cars and even consume slightly less engine oil too.
The costs for maintaining a hybrid vehicle are no more than any other car and Toyota offers competitive servicing plans on all vehicles. Our Toyota Hybrid Electric Service even includes checks like a diagnostic test for its system and a standard battery health check to ensure optimum hybrid battery conditioning, bringing down costs and improving fuel economy.
The Toyota Warranty covers 5 years or 100k miles, and regular approved Toyota servicing will also make your vehicle more attractive to potential buyers should you wish to sell it.
This depends on your driving conditions and whether your vehicle has been regularly serviced. If the conventional engine on your hybrid isn’t in good condition, it will add strain to the battery and cause its cells to deteriorate so affecting its life. This will result in you using your conventional engine more to keep it charged.Your Toyota Hybrid battery is covered by the same five-year or 100,000-mile warranty as the rest of the car. Having a Toyota Hybrid Electric Service annually will extend the standard cover on your hybrid battery for another year, or 10,000 miles, meaning your hybrid battery lifespan can be covered up to a total of 15 years.
