Hybrid vehicles blend traditional petrol engines with electric power, offering an eco-friendlier alternative to conventional cars.

Although they are touted for their fuel efficiency and lower emissions, hybrids still need regular servicing. Unless hybrids are serviced properly, they may become inefficient or break down. Maintaining performance, vehicle efficiency and extending lifespan, are all reasons to book your hybrid in for a service.

Hybrid Car Maintenance

Some hybrid owners assume these advanced vehicles require less maintenance, yet this is a misconception. Like traditional cars, hybrid vehicles need regular servicing.

What kind of checks are in a Hybrid Service?

Everything you need for a petrol engine car. We’ll also check your battery and clean or replace the filter.

  • Inspection and maintenance of the electrical system
  • Battery health check
  • Engine oil change
  • Regular engine tune-up
  • Brake pad inspection
  • Cooling system service
  • Fluid level checks and replacements
  • Oil filters
  • Tire rotation and alignment
  • How often do I need to service a hybrid vehicle?
  • Regular maintenance should be performed every year or 10,000 kilometres
  • Battery checks are recommended for every service
  • Fluid changes may be less frequent due to lower engine use
  • Brake inspection and regenerative braking system check
  • Check suspension
  • Tire rotation and pressure adjustments


How often should you have a hybrid serviced?

To maintain the vehicle’s performance and extend its lifespan, it’s recommended to have it serviced annually. This proactive approach to hybrid servicing is essential to keep your vehicle running efficiently and eco-friendly.

Does a Hybrid Service cost more than a petrol car service?

Costs remain the same; however, if the battery or air filter in the battery needs to be replaced, that will add to the cost. That said, hybrid vehicles can require less frequent fluid top ups, which can save you money.

Cleaning and replacing the battery air filter can extend the battery life.

It’s more expensive if you don’t service your hybrid, as that can lead to costly repairs down the track. Sticking to a consistent maintenance schedule is critical, ensuring hybrids continue to run efficiently and reliably.

A well-maintained hybrid vehicle not only runs more efficiently but also contributes to a greener environment, thanks to its lower emissions. Timely servicing ensures long-lasting performance and can save owners money over the span of the vehicle’s life.
