Services for Your Hybrid or Electric Vehicle at Hawthorne Chevrolet

Our Service Center at Hawthorne Chevrolet has certified technicians and equipment to work on your hybrid or pure electric vehicle (EV). Modern vehicles are high-tech pieces of equipment that come with many moving parts and electric components. An onboard computer controls most vehicle functions, and electrified vehicle maintenance may be out of range for the average DIY driver around Hawthorne. Thankfully, our Service Center is your go-to location for all your electric vehicle needs. We can work on all makes and models and specialize in Chevy vehicles. Although electric vehicles have fewer maintenance requirements, there are still important components to check periodically and ensure optimum performance. Get to know the recommended routine maintenance requirements for your hybrid or electric vehicle by checking your owner's manual or by contacting our experts in our Chevy-certified maintenance and repair shop.

Recommended Maintenance for Hybrid Vehicles

Traditional and plug-in hybrid vehicles have a gas engine, electric motors, and powerful battery packs. The electric components have fewer moving parts. However, the combustion engine will require the same routine maintenance as a regular gas vehicle, along with occasional checks over your electric motor and battery. You can expect the following routine maintenance items for your hybrid vehicle:

  • Routine Oil Changes: An oil change is the foundation of good gas engine maintenance as it keeps moving parts lubricated. 
  • Battery Maintenance: Battery checks are an important part of routine hybrid vehicle maintenance to ensure proper function.
  • Brake Maintenance: Hybrid vehicles use regenerative braking, which means less wear and tear to your brake pads and rotors. We will look over your brake components and recommend replacement as needed.
  • Tire Rotations: Tire maintenance is standard routine care regardless of the type of powertrain in your vehicle. Since tires are in constant contact with the road, regular inspections are crucial to ensure proper traction, stopping power, and overall safety.
  • Inverter Coolant Replacement: Hybrid vehicles need proper coolant levels to protect against overheating.
  • Electrical Components: Periodic inspections of the complex electrical components in hybrid systems are part of good routine maintenance.

Contact our Service Center at Hawthorne Chevrolet for more information on your hybrid vehicle maintenance requirements. Every vehicle is different, and your owner's manual is a good source of information. Our team can help you schedule a maintenance plan to protect your Chevy hybrid vehicle and ensure lasting quality.
