Do hybrid vehicles need oil changes?

I want to make sure that my hybrid stays in peak condition, but I don't know much about the mechanics of a hybrid. Do hybrid vehicles need oil changes?

Yes, all hybrid vehicles need oil changes. Unlike electric cars, hybrid vehicles still have the same internal combustion engine components that you’d find in a gas-powered car—they are just more fuel-efficient.
As such, you should do the same scheduled maintenance on a hybrid car as you’d do on a regular car. Failure to do so could put the engine and other components of the hybrid vehicle at risk and may even void the warranty.
If you are needing to repair your hybrid as a result of an accident or other issue, it may be covered by your car insurance. To find the best rates on car insurance, switch with Jerry.
