Hybrid cars are some of the best vehicles on the planet and they have two main components, so they are simple as well. The main components are the electric motor and the battery. The battery can last up to 200.000 miles, in most hybrid cars.
If it gets damaged while it is under warranty, the manufacturer will replace it. However, most of these batteries last longer, so they will get damaged after the warranty has expired. In that case, you must pay for a new hybrid battery. You must know that a new battery of this type can cost up to $3.000!
This also means that reconditioning a battery is a great thing you can do. Another fact you should know is that it is possible and it is very simple.
All hybrid batteries consist of modules. Some cars have more, some less, but each one of them is based on the same principle. For example, the Toyota prius has 28 modules. When the manufacturer replaces a battery, it will repair the old one and sell it again.
A good thing is that you can do the same. In fact, all you need to do it to replace the damaged module and that battery will last for a long time. The price for this fix is about $700, so it is a lot cheaper than buying a new one. On the other side, the reconditioning battery will last for another 6-7 years, so it is a wise investment as well.
