The roads of Palm Beach County and South Florida are filled with fuel efficient hybrid cars and trucks. Ten years ago there were two hybrid car models to choose from here in the U.S., today there are around fifty hybrid cars, trucks and SUVs to pick from! The surge in popularity has created a competitive market for different hybrid cars and most major automobile manufacturers that don’t already have a hybrid line have announced plans to bring their own versions to dealerships in the near future.

All Star Auto Service Can Test Your Hybrid Vehicle’s Battery and Replace It If Necessary. Why Pay More At The Dealer?
One of the biggest issues with hybrid cars, trucks and SUVs is replacing the battery packs after they have fulfilled their useful life and are starting to fail. Replacing these hybrid car batteries can be an expensive ordeal.
All Star Auto Service can diagnose the battery in your hybrid vehicle and replace it if necessary. Most times at a price better than any Palm Beach County dealer will charge you.
In addition to cooling the engine like non-hybrid cars and trucks, hybrid vehicles need a second cooling system to control the heat of the batteries and electronics. This cooling system has a cooler pump that can fail completely or fail to operate at its needed capacity. If the coolant pump on a hybrid car fails it may cause the check engine light to come on or a complete shutdown of the engine. All Star Auto Service can diagnose your hybrid vehicle’s cooling system and repair or replace the cooler pump if necessary, but replacing cooling fluids at recommended intervals will help you avoid costly repairs.
Why Do Hybrid Car Batteries Need To Be Cooled?

- Heat can reduce available power for the hybrid car batteries
