Do hybrid vehicles need servicing?
Hybrid vehicles need to be serviced as much as any conventional engine. The service will include the standard vehicle service checks, plus servicing the hybrid battery system.
Hybrid vehicles come with a suggested regular servicing schedule which the manufacturers recommend to maintain the integrity and warranties of the car.
Does my hybrid car require an annual maintenance service?
Whilst some believe that hybrid vehicles require less maintenance than a conventional engine, this simply isn’t true. A hybrid vehicle needs all the standard servicing requirements of a petrol/diesel vehicle with added checks to the hybrid battery and electrical components.
The servicing schedule can differ depending on the manufacturer. However, the regular scheduling is usually every year, depending on the vehicle’s annual mileage. This ensures that all the vehicle’s working parts are kept in their best condition.

What happens during a hybrid car service? What do you replace/check?
Lights & Visibility: All lights, including the internal lights, are checked for optimal performance or faults. All windows, wipers, and mirrors are inspected for defects and weak points, along with registration plates being checked for damage and clarity.
Vehicle Interior: All internal controls, including horn, hazard lights, air conditioning and seat belts, are checked to ensure they are working as standard. We also check the internal diagnostics, including warning messages from the internal vehicle software.
Steering & Suspension: All joints, gaiters and wheel bearings are inspected and tested for strength and function. Front & rear shock absorbers are checked and tested, alongside wheel alignment analysis.
Braking system: The complete braking system, including discs and pads, and all surrounding mechanisms are checked, measured, and recorded for their service life.
Under the Vehicle: The battery and high voltage cables are checked to confirm that the wires have not been damaged, and all connectors are checked for corrosion. The battery relies on fluid to keep it at a neutral temperature, so checks confirm levels and any leaks.
Under the Bonnet: A complete engine inspection ensures all parts are in safe working order, with no faults or leaks present. Air & oil filters, spark plugs and drive belts checked and replaced if required.
Tyres: Tyres, including your spare wheel, are checked for tread and tyre pressures adjusted before being refitted. Inflation kits are also checked where appropriate. Wheels are checked for corrosion or weak points.
Final checks: Oil and antifreeze levels a refilled. Brake fluid levels are inspected to ensure client safety before final checks are made, and your service record is updated.
