The average cost to repair conventional automobiles increased in the US for the first time in 6 years, but the cost to repair hybrid cars decreased.
The most expensive automobile repair was the replacement of hybrid vehicle inverters, which cost $4,098. However, the cost of that decreased by almost 5%. The most expensive automobile repair job is now the replacement of the transmission and reprogramming of the electronic control module in conventional automobiles, and that costs more than $5,400.
“Another reason hybrid repair costs are believed to have dropped is the number of technicians qualified to repair them has increased, as has the number of suppliers of hybrid-specific parts.”, according to hybridCARS.
