Reconditioning the hybrid battery paid off for this CARS’ client
This is an individual battery module from a Toyota Prius.
Since we launched CARS Hybrid Care earlier this year, we’ve been proudly touting the fact that we can save you thousands of dollars on a hybrid battery repair compared to the dealer. And here’s one case where we did just that.
The client came to us with their Toyota Prius, and upon testing the battery, we determined there were 10 bad battery modules out of 28. We were able to replace just those 10 modules. We didn’t have to replace the entire battery pack.
The dealer had quoted the client $4,400 to install a new Prius battery pack. We replaced only the failed modules, and the estimated cost to the client? $2,300. That’s a savings of more than $2,000.
Battery modules like these were used to replace the failed ones in our client’s Toyota Prius. We replaced 10 of the 28 modules.
