Many drivers are switching to hybrid cars – in fact, JD Power and Associates reports that 10% of cars on the road in 2015 will be hybrids. A lot of hybrids require specialty services that conventional vehicles do not – fortunately, BRAKEmax has Hybrid Specialists who have been trained to service, diagnose, and repair most modern hybrid vehicles! Hybrids use two motors to make the vehicle run: an internal combustion engine that uses gasoline, and an electric motor. The Powertrain Control Module monitors your driving conditions and switches between the two motors depending on the demand. The electric motor is recharged during driving, both from the fuel burning in the internal combustion engine and through the kinetic energy that is recaptured during braking. As a result, most current hybrid vehicles do not need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet to recharge the batteries. As a AAA-Certified Green automotive repair facility, we want to help keep your “Green” vehicle on the road and running its best. If you’re spending extra money at the dealer to service your hybrid vehicle, consider speaking with your local BRAKEmax associate about our expertise in handling your vehicle’s service and maintaining your car’s warranties.
