The trained technicians at Ayers Repairs will perform three diagnostic tests, including a full scan of all modules and computers for errors, a 12-volt battery test and inspection of cables and connections, and a courtesy inspection of fluid levels, belts, lights, wipers and tires.
A printed check-up on the health of his or her vehicle will be provided to each owner. Check-ups will be by appointment only, and space is limited.

As gas prices have increased, so have the popularity of hybrid vehicles, with Toyota leading the way in sales. Because hybrids function differently than conventional gas-only engines, they require a different maintenance schedule. The complex mechanisms involved in hybrid vehicles can make them very expensive to fix when broken, increasing the importance of regular maintenance. The technicians at Ayers Repairs have completed more hybrid service hours and certifications than many other repair shops in Santa Barbara, and have all the necessary tools to get the job done right.
“We want to host a free event where hybrid owners can check on the overall health of their vehicle, so they can avoid a big breakdown,” Ayers Repairs owner Nikki Ayers said.
