Why Drive a Hybrid?

If you are thinking about purchasing a hybrid, that’s great! We approve. The auto mechanics at Larry’s Independent Service in Mission Viejo are happy to assist with your hybrid’s service and repair.

Though hybrid vehicles have been around for several years now, there is still an active debate with some friendly ribbing from those who are fans of gas-powered engines, diesel-powered engines, and electric vehicles. 

So, why drive a hybrid? Here are the things we believe to be true about why people drive hybrid vehicles:

Hybrids are fuel-efficient.
If you like to save on fuel costs, hybrid vehicles are the way to go. They get better mileage during stop-and-go traffic and while driving around town. 

Hybrids are eco-friendly.
With lower emissions, hybrids have less of an environmental impact. If you want to help make a positive impact on climate change but don’t want to give up having an automobile, hybrid vehicles are a smart way to accomplish both.

Hybrids have a long distance range.
Unlike bigger, gas-guzzling vehicles and some electric vehicles, hybrid cars have a longer range of driving miles. Going a long way between gas stations is a good feeling, right? That is, until you need a potty break.

Hybrids are comfortable to drive.
You will find a variety of hybrid vehicle shapes and sizes to fit the needs of every owner. If you want a four-door hybrid with a large trunk and family-friendly features, you can have it. If you want a two-seater that looks like an exotic sports car, you can have it (if you can afford the BMW i8 with gullwing doors). 

Hybrids are reliable.
Let’s face it… most hybrids on the market are made by car brands that are known for reliability. Toyotas and Hondas are legendary for their reliability. Hybrids also have an advantage for being low maintenance. Still, you need to make sure to take care of your hybrid if you want to keep it reliable.

If you are thinking about purchasing a used hybrid, why not do a pre-purchase inspection with Larry’s Independent Service? You can trust our certified auto mechanics to provide you with valuable pre-purchase information that will help you save money and time.
