Auto Alternative Service and Sales is a family-owned and operated business that provides a full spectrum of services for electric and hybrid car repairs. Over the years, we have expanded from just one service bay to seven. This has allowed us to handle your needs while still being small enough that we get to know you and your car on a personal basis. Our electric and hybrid car repair is designed to be affordable, and efficient while meeting our goals of getting to know your car and your personal needs for your car.
Your Car Is Different
As you probably know, electric and hybrid vehicles are different and they need a different set of tools and knowledge for services and repairs. Our technicians are experts trained to identify and fix issues with your electric and hybrid vehicles. In addition to this, we have the premium parts you need to get your car back on the road in no time.
Your Car’s Motor
Each hybrid or electric car’s motor is designed to save gas. Stopping and going strains your car far more than highway driving, so this is where the torque of your motor needs to be looked at. If your hybrid or electric motors are in poor working condition, you can’t get the optimal gas savings. This is where our motor services come in. We can do maintenance, repairs and even diagnostic testing to ensure the best gas savings and that your car is in optimal condition.
The battery is possibly on the most talked about, most specialized and the costliest part of electric and hybrid cars. The battery keeps the motor going and as such is relied upon for your car to run. Because of the specialization and cost of the battery it’s important to pick a mechanic who has expertise on hybrid batteries. Making sure the technicians you choose are certified can help you ensure that they will be fully trained across the hybrid or electric car’s systems. This training will include the charging systems and the battery.
Here at Auto Alternative we can run diagnostics on your electric or hybrid batteries and repair issues.
Stop! Let’s Talk About Brakes
Electric vehicles and hybrids have a special braking capacity called regenerative braking. This type of braking charges the battery by essentially reversing the motor. Brake systems in hybrid and electric cars generally have a long life, but monitoring them is important to ensure longevity of the system. When your brake pads do finally need to be replaced, we can replace them quickly and efficiently. While some places take days to do simple hybrid and electric repairs, we can your car back on the road in a matter of hours.
