Answer 2
not a lot of mechanics have been train to work on the hybrids at this time. the electrical system is one item and the fuel is another. I am sure at the dealership, some one is trainfor the problems and solutions for these vehicles. As in the beginning with any new vehicles types, the training and knowledge base is a second to the manufacture - the first is to sell and then worry about every thing after that -
