Exclusive Summary About Repairing Hybrid Car By Eshwarya Patel

Hybrid Cars have an edge over conventional cars and are therefore more expensive than the latter. Also, unlike normal cars, hybrid cars do not need much maintenance on their components.

Following guidelines will help you take care of your car properly:

1) In most hybrid cars, the air filter on the battery system should be replaced after every 40,000 miles.

2) The fuel engine of a hybrid car requires similar maintenance as required by the engine of a normal car.

3) Owing to the regenerative brake system in a hybrid car, the brake pads in hybrids last longer than those of an ordinary car.

4) Batteries are the most important and also the costliest component of a hybrid.

5) If the charge of the batteries is no longer maintained between 40% and 60% of its charge, it is better to get the batteries replaced.
