Along with the obvious benefits of a higher fuel efficiency and less emissions, many Nissan hybrid cars require less car service over their lifespan. This means not only do you save money at the pump, but your service schedule will be less expensive and frequent. Cars like the Nissan Rogue Hybrid or the Nissan Leaf are designed to be driver friendly, and fewer potential problems with your car can certainly take some of the stress off buying a new vehicle at Coast Nissan. For the regular car maintenance it does need, be sure to stop by our San Luis Obispo car dealer for the lowest prices and most reliable service.
Engine And Battery
Hybrids use a battery and a combustible engine to power the car, switching off depending on the speed. This reduces stress on the combustible engine, and the batteries in hybrid cars are so powerful nowadays that most drivers won’t ever need them replaced. They are estimated to last over 150,000 miles, but there are many on the street today that have logged upwards of 200,000 miles. Fortunately, while you do need a replacement, the price of these batteries is dropping lower and lower each year and they are also recyclable.
Brake Pad Life
The most noticeable savings you will find with electric and hybrid cars is with the brake pads. Ordinary cars need them changed regularly, but because most hybrid cars use regenerative braking, this reduces the heat and friction buildup on the pads. This eliminates much of the typical wear and tear on the mechanical brakes, extending their lifetime and saving you money.
