Hybrid vehicles contain highly advanced technology, but that doesn’t mean the costs for routine servicing on a hybrid vehicle is more expensive than any other car.
Mileage intervals for oil changes in hybrid cars are usually longer and the lifetime of brake components tend to be longer due to the reduction in heat because of the regenerative braking system so it could well work out cheaper for you in the long run.

Hybrid Vehicles and Lindleys Autocentres
At Lindleys Autocentres, we are fully behind the move to hybrid and electric vehicles. We understand the many benefits of owning a hybrid vehicle and are currently in the process of changing our entire fleet over to more environmentally friendly vehicles.
A hybrid car is one that uses two or more engines i.e. an electric motor and a conventional engine (either petrol or diesel). The electric engine powers the car at lower speeds and gas engine powers it at higher speeds.
There are many benefits to owning a hybrid car, for example;
Cleaner energy - Because hybrid vehicles run on a combination of gas and electricity, it cuts fuel consumption which in turn makes it more environmentally friendly.
Financial Benefits – Lower fuel costs means less money spent!
Regenerative braking - Much of the energy produced during braking is captured and fed to the battery. This action increases the charge available to the electric motor, which results in less fuel consumption. It can also extend the life of your brakes.
Weight savings - Many hybrids are constructed using lightweight materials, so they don't consume as much energy as their full-weight counterparts.
Lindleys Autocentres are certainly geared for this change in motoring and we continue to heavily invest in training for all members of staff.
