For years, used car dealers have avoided used hybrid vehicles because they don’t understand them. Used hybrids have unique issues that very few repair shops can deal with. Recently, some independent used car dealers have begun to try to capitalize on the popularity of these great vehicles and end up getting themselves and their customers in trouble because they can’t deal with unique problems that arise. Our partners at The Hybrid Shop are experts who have the training and equipment to keep these cars going and going and going. Before you buy a used Prius or other hybrid from that corner lot, ask them if they have the ability to provide service after the sale. Do they offer a hybrid battery warranty? Have they checked out the critical components that can cause problems as these cars age?
