Do hybrid vehicles need servicing?

Hybrid vehicles require the same level of maintenance as conventional engines. Besides standard vehicle maintenance, the service will also include servicing the battery system found on hybrid vehicles.

All Manufacturers recommend regular service for hybrid vehicles to maintain the integrity and warranty of your vehicle.

Does my hybrid car require an annual maintenance service?

Some believe that hybrid vehicles require less maintenance than conventional engines, but this is simply not the case. A hybrid car requires all the regular servicing of a petrol/diesel vehicle, plus additional checks on the hybrid battery and electrical components. 

Depending on the manufacturer, servicing schedules can differ. Regular scheduling, however, is usually every year, depending on the vehicle’s annual mileage. It is worth noting that hybrid cars do have a dashboard indicator for when a service is required. It ensures that the vehicle’s working parts remain in tip-top condition.

What happens during a hybrid car service? What do you check/replace?


Lights and Visibility: Internal and external lights are tested to ensure they work optimally or are free from faults. In addition to checking the windows, wipers, and mirrors for damage and weak points, we check the registration plates to ensure they are undamaged.


Vehicle Interior: We test the horn, hazard lights, air conditioning, and seat belts to ensure they work properly. In addition, we review the internal diagnostics, including warning messages from the vehicle’s software.


Steering & Suspension: The strength and functionality of each joint, gaiter and wheel bearing are tested. We check the front & rear shock absorbers and the wheel alignment.


Braking System: We inspect, measure, and track the life of the entire brake system, including the discs and pads and all surrounding mechanisms.


Tyres: All tyres, including your spare, are checked for tread, and tyre pressures are adjusted. The wheels are inspected for corrosion or weak spots. When necessary, inflation kits are examined as well.


Under the Car: Corrosion is checked on all connectors, and high voltage cables and batteries are also inspected to ensure they haven’t been damaged. The battery relies on fluid to maintain a neutral temperature, so the level and leaks of this fluid are checked.


Under the Bonnet: Engine inspection ensures that all parts are in good working order and that there are no leaks or faults. The air & oil filters, spark plugs and drive belts are inspected and replaced as necessary.


Final Checks: Antifreeze and oil levels are refilled. Before completing any final checks, we also check brake fluid levels and update your service record.
