Contact the hybrid specialists at Foreman’s Integra Tire Auto Centre in Surrey to book your inverter tune-up, or any other hybrid vehicle services, such as:
Hybrid Battery Maintenance
Hybrid batteries last much longer than regular car batteries, often with life expectancies of five to ten years, depending on the manufacturer. There are two steps you can take to extend the life of your battery.
- Park indoors or in the shade to protect the battery from extreme weather.
- Have a hybrid specialist routinely clean your battery of debris to help prevent corrosion.
When it’s time to replace your battery, come see the hybrid specialists at Foreman’s Integra Tire Auto Centre for expert advice on your car’s next battery.
Your inverter converts the direct current energy conducted by your braking system into alternating current energy to power your car. This process generates a lot of heat, so the inverter uses coolant to combat that heat which will need to be monitored and replaced occasionally. Contact our experts to get your hybrid in for an inverter tune up.
Unlink a standard vehicle, there are many types of hybrid transmissions that collect and process energy differently. When you need a hybrid car repair shop that you can trust with your hybrid transmission, contact the specialists at Foreman’s Integra Tire Auto Centre in Surrey.
