If you’re a New Haven driver who’s concerned about fuel efficiency, you might be looking at a hybrid new vehicle. Hybrid vehicles use the combination of an internal combustion engine and an electric motor to power you through your drives in North Haven and beyond. 

Are hybrid cars high maintenance? In short, the answer is no. Hybrid vehicles need pretty much the same maintenance as regular vehicles and might even need less maintenance in certain regards. In addition, since you’re driving a Mazda, you’re driving a supremely reliable vehicle as-is. Want to learn more about hybrid car maintenance? Hamden Mazda has your guide just waiting.

Typical Hybrid Car Maintenance Costs

As a lot of shoppers in Wallingford ask, “Are hybrid cars high maintenance?”, it’s important that we cover the maintenance costs of a hybrid vehicle. When you’re starting research on the auto services you need for a hybrid vehicle, you’ll find there’s not much difference compared to an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle. In addition, hybrid car maintenance costs are roughly the same compared to an ICE vehicle.

The only exception is the replacement of a hybrid vehicle battery. Many drivers report that a hybrid car battery can last as much as 200,000 miles, and if you suffer an early breakdown, you’ll be covered under warranty.

Benefits With Hybrid Car Maintenance

If you’re a North Haven or Wallingford driver who’s still undecided about a hybrid vehicle, we understand. If you’re looking for the facts, here’s our top reasons you’ll want to make the switch to a lower maintenance hybrid car:

  • Since a hybrid vehicle typically uses regenerative braking to regain energy for the battery, you’ll have less wear and tear on your brakes.
  • Since you’re not always running your gasoline engine, you’ll be able to go a little bit longer without having to get an oil change. Still, we recommend getting your oil changed at the intervals your owner’s manual says.
  • In addition, that internal combustion engine being used less means that you’ll be using a lot of common parts less, leading to an easier time getting your vehicle maintained.
