Hybrid Car Care

Despite the durability of this car, it is also very important to make sure that it is in good condition. Here are some tips of making sure that your hybrid car is in tiptop condition.

It is usually recommended that the oil and filter changes be done after every 3000-5000 miles. Despite most advertisement saying that the car could last longer, the 3000-5000 mile period is usually recommended for any hybrid car.

It is also recommended that synthetic oil be used in oiling the cars.

Tire rotation on every oil change is recommended, this is at the 6000th mile mark. This prevents wear and tear on the tires.

It is also a good idea that the tire pressure be checked once a month.

The air filter should be checked or, better yet, replaced every six months. This is because the dirt may clog the air filter and lead it to malfunction.

One of the most important things to remember is the importance of reading the owner’s manual. For some reason people do not read the manuals and do not stop to consider all the damage that could happen because they did not read it.

The last thing that a hybrid car owner should remember is that the inverter coolant should also be changed after 6000 miles has been reached.

These are some of the tips that will ensure that the hybrid car is in good condition. However, if you own a hybrid car and would like it looked at, you can contact us or visit our website for more information on where to get some of the spare parts of the hybrid car.
