Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Service
As a responsible Electric Vehicle and hybrid vehicle owner, it is essential to keep your car in top-notch condition. While electric and hybrid vehicles require less maintenance than traditional gasoline vehicles, they still require some routine maintenance to ensure their reliability, longevity, performance, and safety. Electric vehicles for instance don’t require any oil changes or experience any engine trouble (since they don’t have one); on the other hand hybrid vehicles still require oil changes however they experience less wear and tear on the engine due to the switching between gas and electric.

Here are some recommended services for your electric and hybrid vehicle:
The battery is one of the most crucial components of your Electric Vehicle or hybrid. Regular battery inspections are essential to ensuring that your car performs efficiently and smoothly. It is recommended to get your battery checked every six months or during your routine maintenance or next service appointment. An 8-year/100,000-mile warranty backs most EV batteries, so you don’t have to worry about extra cost.
Your brakes are another essential component of your vehicle. Regular brake maintenance helps in preventing accidents and keeping you and your passengers safe. It is recommended to get your brakes checked every year and to change out your brake pads every five years or sooner, depending on your driving habits.
Proper tire maintenance is crucial for your car's performance and safety. Check your tire pressure regularly and ensure that your tires are in good condition. It is recommended to get your tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. This will ensure that your tires wear evenly and maintain a reliable grip. And at about 50,000 miles, you’ll likely need new tires to ensure your vehicle's performance and safety.
While Electric Vehicles don’t require engine oil, hybrid vehicles do. It is recommended to get your oil checked and changed every 7,500 miles. As for coolant, both EVs and hybrid vehicles require routine coolant changes. It is recommended to get your battery coolant replaced at least every five years. The only other fluid to think about is windshield wiper fluid, which should be checked annually or sooner depending on your usage rate.
Clean air filters help in improving your car's performance and fuel efficiency. It is recommended to get your air filters checked and replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Your Electric Vehicle or hybrid's software needs to be updated regularly to ensure that it performs efficiently and smoothly. It is recommended to check for software updates every six months.
While Electric Vehicles don’t require engine maintenance, hybrids do. Regular engine maintenance helps in preventing costly repairs and ensures that your car performs efficiently. It is recommended to get your engine checked and serviced every 5,000 to 10,000 miles.
Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Benefits
Owning an Electric Vehicle or hybrid comes with many benefits and savings in terms of servicing costs. Electric Vehicles have fewer moving parts, which means lower maintenance costs. Hybrids use regenerative braking, which reduces brake wear and tear. Moreover, hybrids have a longer lifespan than traditional vehicles, which means fewer repairs and maintenance costs. Regular maintenance can help you save money in the long run and ensure that your car performs efficiently and safely.
