Your basic hybrid warranty should cover everything for about eight years or 100,000 miles. If you bought a used hybrid the vehicle may almost be out of warranty. But that’s okay, we can provide the maintenance and repair that can keep your car running well. If you are interested, there is a certified used vehicle warranty from Toyota available that is extension coverage of the vehicle’s original factory warranty. It can protect you against mechanical failures and breakdowns.
If your car has problems, contact Dakota Ridge Automotive and our technicians can figure out what’s wrong and get it fixed quickly, with or without a warranty. We are conveniently located right here in Littleton. Not everyone can service hybrids, but we can. Hybrids have complex systems that need specialized experience, training, and expertise. Our certified technicians have been servicing hybrids since 2000. We offer bumper-to-bumper maintenance, diagnostics, and repairs to maximize efficiency and keep your hybrid safely on the road.
The Federal Trade Commission, our country’s consumer protection agency, says a dealer must honor the warranty that came with your new car even if someone else does the routine maintenance or repairs. A dealer can’t deny your warranty coverage because you had routine maintenance or repairs performed by another auto shop. In fact, that’s illegal.
One caution about hybrid service is be prepared for battery issues. Hybrids use a 12V battery like other cars and a costly Lithium-Ion or Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery that can degrade over time. If you have a hybrid car and notice a loss of performance, come to our experts for hybrid battery reconditioning before spending thousands on a complete replacement that dealers often recommend.
