Hybrid Battery Repair
Installing the high voltage battery in a Honda Insight
A hybrid vehicle uses two power sources to move the vehicle. Hybrids consist of a combination of an internal combustion engine and one or more electric motors. Hybrid vehicles have become widely popular in recent years due to their excellent fuel economy. Our Auto repair shop has become dedicated to offering vehicle owners top of the line hybrid repairs.

So, can a Toyota Prius hybrid battery, Honda Civic hybrid battery or a Honda Insight hybrid battery actually be successfully repaired rather than replaced? In the case of the Toyota, much depends on mileage and plans for the vehicle. Individual battery cell replacement is certainly possible. At issue is how long the rest of the cells will last and what drives the answer to that question is the miles and age of the vehicle, plus the type of driving it has been doing. In the case of the Honda, we have not found it to be prudent to mix old and new cells in the packs. Therefore, we only recommend replacement of ALL cells in the Honda packs.
