    We carry out all the regular checks you'd expect for a petrol or diesel powered car, including inspecting your brakes, tyres, and coolant. But Hybrid vehicles have similarities to EVs when being serviced, and as such, have additional maintenance and repair requirements. Let's take a look at what we do:

    Plugin Hybrids

    Plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) servicing is essentially a combination of an ICE vehicle and an EV. You have the petrol/diesel engine and related parts to service, the battery operated EV elements, plus the parts associated with charging the car.

    Self-charging Hybrids

    With self charging hybrids, you have one less element to worry about than with PHEVs, as you can't plug them in. The car is an EV under certain conditions (like speed or when the battery has enough charge) and an ICE vehicle the rest of the time.

    Battery and Charging

    The battery is a crucial component of a PHEV. During a service appointment, the technician should inspect the battery for any signs of damage or wear. They may also perform diagnostic tests to ensure that the battery is functioning properly.

    Petrol, Diesel and Oil

    Just like a gasoline-powered vehicle, a hybrid cars also require regular oil changes for the internal combustion engine powering the car when it's out of battery. Our hybrid car service is like a general service, with the battery and charging checks on top.

    Suspension, brakes and tyres

    Hybrid cars can be pretty heavy, lugging around a petrol or diesel engine, along with the battery and EV drivetrain. As a result, they need robust suspension, tyres and brakes that need regular servicing to stay fully functional and safe.

    Heating, cooling and fluids

    Hybrids have a coolant system that helps regulate the temperature of the battery and the motor. Your Vasstech technician will check the coolant level and inspect the system for any leaks or damage, keeping your car running at an optimum temperature.

    Why keep your hybrid car serviced?

    If your car is coming out of its warranty period, or is getting to that stage in it’s life where regular servicing is becoming more of a necessity than a desire – you might be questioning whether you really need to check yours in at the garage. We’re here to point out that having your hybrid car serviced is definitely important, particularly as we’re now seeing hybrid cars becoming older and more commonplace.


    Regular maintenance and servicing will ensure that your hybrid car is safe to drive. The technician can identify any potential safety issues and fix them before they become more serious, saving you money in the long run too.


    Regular servicing can help maintain the performance of your hybrid car. The technician can check for any issues that may be affecting your car’s acceleration, handling, and overall performance and fix them as needed.

    Fuel efficiency

    Hybrid cars are designed to be fuel-efficient, but this can be impacted if the car is not properly maintained. Regular servicing can help ensure that your car’s battery, engine, and other components are working efficiently, which can help improve your car’s fuel economy.


    Regular servicing can also help extend the life of your hybrid car. By addressing any potential issues early on, you can prevent more serious problems from developing and keep your car running smoothly for longer.


    Whilst new hybrid cars have servicing included from the dealership, older cars still within their warranty period or with extended warranty may require regular servicing to remain valid. If you fail to have your car serviced, you may risk voiding that warranty, which could be costly if something goes wrong.

    Having your hybrid car serviced is important for maintaining its safety, performance, fuel efficiency, longevity, and warranty. By keeping up with regular servicing, you can ensure that your hybrid car is running at its best and avoid more serious problems down the line.
