Hybrid Car Warranties and Preventative Maintenance - Autos - Hybrids

<p>In order to make your hybrid car run smoothly for a long time, there are a few things that can be done which will not take a lot of money or time. Most cars come with good warranties especially for the expensive parts like the battery. But not all parts of the car have the same warranty duration. While some parts have 3 or 4 year warranty, others can have up to 8 years - which is considered the lifetime of the car. </p>

<p>When you buy a new car or a used car, make sure you check the warranty conditions. This can save you a lot of trouble in the long run. All cars come with preventative maintenance instructions. You will be told when you need to give the car servicing or replacement of parts depending on the usage. Basic maintenance of a hybrid car is the same as a regular car and you will need to do the oil checks, air filter replacement, etc.</p>

<p>After the warranty expires for your car parts, even if it costs you slightly more, go for high quality parts made by the manufacturer. A cheap spare part may work just fine but the durability will always be lower and you may need to replace it more often which is not worth the trouble. The hybrid car battery is the most important as well as most expensive part of the car. You can do hybrid battery replacement on your own or you can go to the local auto dealer and get it done with the added expense of hourly charges. When you get it serviced according to the instructions, you may sometimes have to specify if you'd like extra checks of the engine winding equipment, electric parts, etc.</p>

<p>If you find that the car is giving you any trouble, don't wait for it to get worse before you see a mechanic. The earlier you detect and fix the problem, the less it will cost you. A hybrid car is a lot more complex than a regular car which most mechanics know how to fix. It is a good idea to go to an authorized dealer to get your car checked, fixed and even for the regular service. With the dealer, you may get a few services for free as well. In general hybrid batteries need replacement after 160,000 miles and you can wait till it dies to replace it as 's very expensive.</p>

<p>Extended warranties are also available with most manufacturers and should be made use of. When your car works fine, you may hesitate to spend on the extended warranty but remember that your car will get older when the warranty kicks in and you may be able to save a lot more. This holds true even if you plan to buy a used car. Don't buy a used car if the warranty has expired. If the warranty is close to expiration, you will be safe for a few years by paying a little extra for the extended warranty.</p>
