FAYETTEVILLE, Ga.Hoffman Tire Pros of Fayetteville has partnered with The Hybrid Shop (THS) to provide advanced automotive services to owners of hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV) in Hoffman's market.
Through this new affiliation, Hoffman Tire Pros will be able to provide cost-saving hybrid battery recharging services, along with other diagnostic, repair and preventative maintenance service solutions to HEV owners, the company said.
Through the partnership with THS, Hoffman Tire Pros' technicians have become certified in the use of THS's exclusive hybrid battery conditioning technology.
Hybrid battery conditioning is an innovative, affordable and environmentally friendly alternative to hybrid battery replacement, improving fuel economy while restoring battery performance up to 95 percent of the original manufacturers' power and energy specifications, THS said.
By conditioning the original battery, consumers can save over 70 percent of the cost of replacing the battery due to a decrease in mileage per gallon or sluggish performance.
According to THS, replacement hybrid batteries can typically cost between $4,000 and $9,000.
In addition, the partnership has allowed Hoffman Tire Pros to offer its HEV customers an optional State of Health (SOH) programconducted prior to battery conditioningthat assesses the bigger picture of the vehicle, THS said. The SOH assessment uses a predictive analysis that measures hybrid vehicle systems to deliver maximum economy, performance and reliability, the firm added.
As battery performance impacts every high voltage system, the SOH service is particularly valuable to HEV owners, providing them with detailed information to help them avoid expensive repairs and breakdowns, THS said.
Hoffman Tire Pros has been serving Fayetteville and the surrounding community since it was founded in 1976.
