Hybrid cars are designed to be affordable and sustainable, but that doesn’t mean they’re without problems. If these things start happening to you, you should bring your hybrid in for a check-up.
Your Charge Is Unreliable
If your power is fluctuating, your battery life doesn’t last long enough, or if you notice that you’re relying more on your combustion engine than your battery, it likely means that your battery is struggling or dying. This can happen if you don’t drive your car often enough, which can strain the battery. It can also just be a sign of your car reaching its limit, your charging system failing, or even the result of cold weather.
Your Oxygen Sensor Is Malfunctioning
If your oxygen sensor isn’t working right, it can cause your car’s fuel performance to suffer. If you don’t use your combustion engine enough, you won’t be using your fuel optimally, which can cause problems with your exhaust and thus, cause problems with your oxygen sensor. This can hurt your overall mileage.
Your Car Is Making Noise
All cars can make loud, strange, or otherwise concerning noises if things aren’t functioning correctly. Hybrid cars are no exception to this rule, and if you hear loud or unusual sounds coming from the car, there’s probably something going wrong. A loud engine can signal a catalytic converter failure, which tends to be common with hybrids. Battery overuse can also cause problems with the engine, which will, in turn, cause strange noises.
