Hybrids vs. Gasoline Powered Vehicles

Hybrids vs. Gasoline

Although Complete Automatic works mostly with gasoline powered cars, we also service hybrids as they are becoming more popular. With the high gas prices and growing environmental issues, the hybrid is gaining more appeal. Our team is always up-to-date with the most current technologies. With any big investment, it’s wise to weigh the pros and cons.

Hybrid Car Pros

  • Hybrid cars emit fewer gases and burn less fossil fuel. When you drive to a stop, the gas engine doesn’t run so the car ends up burning less fuel. You’ll end up saving on maintenance since the car is not sensitive to engine overuse. Living in an urban environment involves slower driving. In these cases, hybrids might be a better option

Hybrid Car Cons

  • Although hybrids offer great fuel economy, they also are much more expensive than the traditional gas-powered vehicles of the same size. In most cases, hybrids do not fail frequently. When they do not function properly, repairs can be expensive.

Traditional Gas Car Pros

  • Conventional gas cars are less expensive and more simple. This is why so many car owners choose them. Since technology is improving, the overall fuel economy of gasoline-powered cars is getting more similar to the hybrids.

Traditional Gas Car Cons

  • Traditional gas cars might present more safety issues than hybrids. On top of that, there are many safety environmental concerns because of toxins that are emitted into the air.
