Hybrid – Electric Vehicles
New Age Vehicles We Share The Road With!
It’s a new, exciting and expanding age in which we live where the old conventional gasoline and diesel powered vehicles are sharing the roads with more and more hybrid and electric vehicles (EV’s for short). So, if you own one of these newer high tech machines, and realize that is NOT your Dad’s old family car, the question comes up, “Where do I go for service? Do I have to go to the dealer to service and repair my highly advanced hybrid or electric vehicle?” And the answer is “Yes, go to the dealer” BUT ONLY if your vehicle is under a new car factory warranty.”
If the vehicle is out of its factory warranty, on an after-market/3rd party warranty and /or just needs basic maintenance and service items performed, you can take it to most ASE certified independent/local automotive service facilities (i.e. Pride Auto Care) with hybrid /EV qualified technicians for those basic services. Here’s the challenge at other service shops, that claim they work on all makes and models:
The odds of you finding a truly qualified technician for your hybrid or EV are very slim, considering there are about 233,000 repair shops in America and only 1,540 technicians within those shops (as of Nov 2020) who are actually ASE-certified to work on these vehicles. Pride Auto Care has you covered with multiple, advanced ASE Master Techs certified on hybrid / electric vehicle. We are proud to have 4 technician specialists on our team, one at each of our 4 locations, ready to serve you and your vehicle’s needs.
FTR (for the record): Most vehicles just run on a simpler 12-volt system. Today’s hybrid and EV platforms may produce five or more different voltages ranging from 5 volts all the way up to 650 volts! That’s a lot of power! So, for safety and reliability, you need a reputable, highly specialized technician like you’ll find at Pride Auto Care. We’re ready to help.
We have you covered from basic maintenance, tires, and standard vehicle repairs to the specialized systems of high voltage batteries, DC/AC inverters, controllers, DC/DC converters, transmissions, and drive motors to make sure your vehicle stays safely on the road, saving you money for a long healthy vehicle life.
It’s simple—Find a Pride Auto Care shop near work or home and give us a call. Let’s talk about your hybrid vehicle or your EV and how we can help give you peace of mind and take care of your ‘pride and joy.’

Very few repair shops are versed on the complexities that your Audi, BMW, Mercedes, or Porsche have. At Pride Auto Care, you can expect a comprehensive report with pictures & videos detailing any repairs and recommendations we find during our inspection and diagnostic time. European vehicles use more plastic components then other vehicles in their cooling systems; therefore, we will install only original equipment grade or improved metal upgraded parts to keep the factory performance where it should be while increasing reliability. As always, our work is backed by our nationwide warranty of 36,000 miles or 36 months, including up to $75.00 for towing reimbursement in the very unlikely event, a part fails.
