How does battery conditioning save money? 

When your hybrid battery begins to show signs of deterioration, the dealer will typically recommend replacement with a new battery.  This may cost $3,000 to $8,000, depending upon the make and model of your car.

Battery conditioning is about one-third of the cost of replacement with a new battery.  It’s an economical and effective alternative.  And you’ll see an immediate, dramatic improvement in your car’s performance and gas mileage.

How does battery conditioning protect the environment?

Battery conditioning is an eco-friendly, sustainable solution.  By choosing to condition instead of replace your used hybrid battery, you’ll reclaim a valuable resource and reduce the wasteful disposal of constructive materials.

"We were having trouble with our hybrid battery…  Mike and the crew were amazing. We were grateful for the help provided and were impressed that Dave himself took the time to come and chat with us and educate us on hybrid cars. We definitely would recommend Hillside Auto Repair and will definitely be coming back if we have any future issues with our hybrid car.”

“Very professional people.  They know their job…  All my questions regarding my car problems were answered right and my hybrid Honda Civic is a really complicated car not any mechanic can fix or knows about it. They do… In less than 2 hours they diagnosed my car problems for a very modest fee and explained… my options. Very, very professional and efficient service. I definitely recommend Hillside Auto Repair.”
