Are Hybrids Reliable?
Dec 15, 2014 - 5:20 PM - by

With essentially two powertrains under the hood and a number of additional electric components, gas-electric hybrids are without a doubt complex vehicles. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re prone to breaking down.

“Conventional wisdom holds that the ‘more parts there are, the more likely it is for things to fail,’” says Michael Karesh, creator of “Following this logic, hybrids should be more troublesome than regular cars, as they essentially have two powertrains, plus come complicated electronics. Not only should they fail more often, but when they do fail they should be more difficult to fix.”

Hybrid Cars vs. Gas Cars

TrueDelta, like Consumer Reports, polls car owners monthly in order to get an up to date resource of reliability history and other statistics including fuel economy. “The reality though,” says Karesh, “is that hybrid repair frequencies tend to be at least as low as those for regular cars, and lower in some cases.”

Karesh isn’t the only one with this information; other publications including Consumer Reports and J.D. Power are revealing similar statistics. Even with all those extra parts, hybrids are quite reliable.

The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 12:40 PM - by
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the
