Here at Pit Stop you and your family’s safety when driving your vehicle is paramount to us. Driving a safe and reliable vehicle gives you with peace of mind for any journey you embark on.
One of the misconceptions regarding hybrid and ev servicing is that they require no or little maintenance, it is accepted that whilst a hybrid or ev vehicle requires less maintenance than a conventionally powered vehicle, to ensure safe, reliable and efficient running our recommendation is to have your hybrid or ev serviced every 10,000km or once a year (whichever occurs first).
We have designed two specific vehicle maintenance services to ensure your hybrid or ev continues to provide you with reliable motoring both now and into the future.
Our hybrid and ev service trained technicians have both the knowledge and tools to ensure your vehicle is kept running safely, reliably and efficiently.
