With more hybrids hitting the road and most OEM’s in the game or planning new hybrids soon, when are you going to get ready? Taking this class will help you travel along the HYBRID HIGHWAY! It will demonstrate the problems shops are seeing and the diagnostic approach required to handle them. We will examine from beginning to end what the customer told the service advisor, what was done step-by-step, and the outcome.
