Are Hybrid Cars High Maintenance?

2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid

With more and more Athens drivers considering the switch to hybrid cars, we receive many more questions at Phil Hughes Honda about hybrids, such as, “Are hybrid cars high maintenance,” and “What can you expect for hybrid car maintenance?” Hybrid vehicles require about the same amount of maintenance as conventional vehicles. In fact, some components may even need less maintenance on a hybrid vehicle. Learn more about hybrid car maintenance with the service team at Phil Hughes Honda.



Typical Hybrid Car Maintenance Costs

With many people asking, “Are hybrid cars high maintenance?” we want to share our knowledge of hybrid car maintenance. You’ll find it’s pretty similar to any standard vehicle on Winder streets. Hybrid cars need an oil change about every 5,000 to 7,000 miles and will need similar maintenance items as vehicles powered with a conventional combustion engine. The one exception is the replacement of a hybrid car battery. Still, many Monroe drivers say their hybrid battery lasts up to 200,000 miles or more. Keep reading for some tips about hybrid car maintenance costs:

Oil Changes on a Hybrid Vehicle

Oil change intervals remain similar to standard vehicles, and the cost of the oil change is about the same as well. 

Batteries on a Hybrid Vehicle

Most hybrid cars contain two batteries: a regular vehicle battery and a hybrid battery. The hybrid vehicle battery will likely last as long as a standard vehicle battery and typically cost the same. But, in the unlikely event that you need a new hybrid car battery, expect the costs to be more. The good news is that Honda hybrid vehicles provide warranty coverage for a minimum of eight years or 100,000 miles, with some newer Honda models providing coverage for up to 10 years or 150,000 miles. 

Other Wear & Tear Maintenance on a Hybrid Car

Aside from the possibility of needing a new hybrid battery, other wear and tear maintenance items on a hybrid vehicle aren’t much different from any other vehicle. You’ll need new tires, lightbulbs, and other regular service tasks. You can make a service appointment online at Phil Hughes Honda near Watkinsville.
