Hybrid vehicles are strong and special at the same time – unlike conventionally powered vehicles that need a battery only for the start and for powering the car’s electrical system, hybrid cars use a special battery for generating electricity for a special motor that moves the car up to a certain speed. Mile Hybrid Automotive offers excellent maintenance services

Most hybrid cars also use regenerative breaking, a process that harnesses the energy generated when the driver hits the brakes and there are other hybrid subsystem that work in ways that are slightly different from standard cars. These special technical solutions require special attention as well as special repair techniques from experts, like those found at https://www.milehybridauto.com/. Here are the most common faults encountered with hybrid cars:

  • The hybrid battery pack – the special unit is sturdy and durable, but it can fail, like any other component. Fortunately, hybrid batteries can today be repaired as well as reconditioned, so they are no longer as expensive as they used to be;
  • Oxygen sensors – these components are responsible for tracking the amount of unburnt oxygen in the car’s exhaust system, therefore they are essential for proper vehicle performance. In most cases, faulty sensors cannot be repaired and they need to be replaced;
  • The catalytic converter – another component that is very costly to replace, but that might be suitable for repair or reconditioning.
