Hybrid Car Specialists
If you are involved in an accident, our technicians know how to bring your car back to its pre-accident condition. Damage to systems in an accident are a particular problem. At Fleet, we regularly repair city hybrid vehicles that have been involved in all kinds of traffic accidents. The Prius has three water pumps, any of which can be damaged. If the coolant system is not repaired correctly, the engine can be compromised. We are specialists, and know the telltale signs to look for.

If something goes wrong with a hybrid system after a collision, you could be shelling out big bucks. Fleet knows Hybrid vehicle's, working on them regularly. Let us help you make the right decision on your repair and maintenance programs to keep your investment sound.
Routine maintenance costs on a hybrid may be lower than on a regular car. The gas engine shuts down when the car is idling and at other times, such as driving at low speeds when the electric motor takes over. That means there's less wear and tear on the engine.
On smaller hybrids, especially, oil changes are recommended at 5,000 miles (8,046 kilometers) rather than the 3,000 miles (4,828 kilometers) that mechanics recommend for many similar cars. The hybrids' regenerative braking system and the lower heat involved means that brake pads and brakes tend to last much longer.
With most hybrid cars, no special regular maintenance is needed on the hybrid system.
All of our mechanics undergo Hybrid Safety Training. Learn more
