Why should you have your hybrid vehicle serviced at CARS of America? We can save you thousands of dollars compared to the car dealer, and we’re greener because we repair, not replace, failed hybrid components.
At CARS of America in Glenview and Evanston, we can save you thousands over the dealer when servicing your hybrid cars. We can also help you be greener by repairing, not replacing, failed hybrid parts.
When hybrid cars first hit the market, many consumers believed their new car dealer was the only game in town when it came to service and repairs. As hybrids became more popular, independent auto repair shops like CARS of America became more outspoken about our ability to service hybrids for everyday needs like oil changes, tires, brakes, steering and suspension work.
And now, CARS of America is one of a few independent shops that can service your hybrid even better than the dealer can, whether you have a Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, Ford Focus hybrid or one of the many other hybrid models on the market.
We’ve invested extensively in specialized hybrid training and hybrid testing and repair equipment developed by a company called FutureTech, which is led by a former General Motors engineer. This means we have equipment that even the dealers don’t have.
If your hybrid battery or transaxle (transmission) gives you problems, the dealers will replace the entire battery pack or transaxle to the tune of thousands of dollars. But at CARS of America, we can test, disassemble and repair your battery or transaxle. We repair or replace only the individual components that have failed, not the entire assembly. This saves you thousands of dollars and eliminates a ton of waste.
Take a Toyota Prius battery pack, for example. It contains 28 individual battery cells or modules. In most cases, only a few of these fail. At CARS, we can replace just those individual cells. The rest of the battery is fine! Why replace or discard something that’s working perfectly fine?
CARS is one of only two independent shops (that we know of) in the Chicago north suburbs that have this level of hybrid equipment and training. So whether you simply need an oil change or want a preventive health check on your battery, give us a call or schedule an appointment online today. We help your battery outlast your hybrid!
