Typical Hybrid Car Maintenance Costs

With many shoppers wondering, “Are hybrid cars high maintenance?,” it’s important that we go over the maintenance costs of a hybrid vehicle. When you’re beginning your research on the auto services needed for a hybrid vehicle, you’ll find that it’s not much different than a standard vehicle. Hybrid vehicles will need oil changes around every 5,000 to 7,000 miles and will likely require similar maintenance items as vehicles powered by an internal combustion engine.

Because of this, you’ll find that hybrid car maintenance reliability is similar to a normal vehicle. The only exception is the replacement of a hybrid vehicle battery. However, many drivers report their hybrid battery lasting upwards of 200,000 miles or more. Some advice we have regarding hybrid vehicle maintenance costs include:

Oil Changes

With oil change intervals remaining similar to standard vehicles, oil changes will cost the same on a hybrid vehicle.

Batteries

Most hybrid vehicles have two batteries: a standard vehicle battery and a hybrid battery. The hybrid vehicle battery will likely need to be replaced similar to a standard vehicle battery and will most likely cost the same. In the unlikely event that the Maserati hybrid battery needs to be replaced, the costs could be a bit pricier.

However, Maserati hybrid vehicles have warranty coverage for 4 years/50,000 miles. This coverage is excellent and shows that Maserati hybrid vehicles are engineered for longevity.

Other Wear & Tear Maintenance

Aside from hybrid vehicle battery replacements, other wear and tear maintenance items on a Maserati hybrid vehicle will not be much different from any other vehicle. With tire replacements, lightbulbs, and other regular service items needing to be replaced at their recommended service intervals.

Benefits of Hybrid Car Maintenance

If you’re still on the fence about a hybrid vehicle, we get it. However, by choosing a new Maserati hybrid, you’re getting a fuel-efficient and dependable vehicle that won’t let you down on your Massapequa drives. Their maintenance isn’t much different from any other dependable Maserati vehicles but they have the added benefit of increased efficiency. Some other benefits of maintenance on a Maserati hybrid vehicle are as follows:

  • Increased Brake Life: Hybrid vehicles use regenerative braking which uses the momentum of your vehicle to regain some energy for the battery. This regenerative braking system means that your regular brakes will be used less, resulting in increased brake life.
  • Longer Oil Change Intervals: Since your internal combustion engine may not always be running, the need for oil changes may be decreased. However, we recommend you have a trained professional check your oil regularly to ensure that your hybrid vehicle runs in tip-top shape.
  • Less Overall Maintenance: Similar to oil changes, you’ll likely need less overall maintenance with a hybrid vehicle. With the internal combustion engine being used less, there are fewer moving parts that will be worn down. Electric motors are also very simple and have fewer moving parts that will need to be replaced over time.
