The Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain in your Toyota combines the power of a petrol engine with two electric motors to give you exceptional fuel efficiency and smooth, near-silent driving.

Our owners tell us that as well as proving rewarding to drive, the hybrid system is simple to use, and hugely reliable – but even so, this innovative technology needs specialist expertise to keep it in top condition…

The Toyota Hybrid Health Check is the best way to ensure the optimal performance of your vehicle.

At its core, the health check includes a series of specialist inspections, including the following:

We investigate the status and condition of your Toyota ‘traction’ battery. This is the battery that powers your car’s wheels, and is separate to the 12v starter battery that’s used to start the engine.

The next step is to check and confirm the car’s fuel consumption, to ensure that the petrol engine and electric motors are working in harmony.

Finally, we examine the car’s Hybrid cooling systems, to ensure that the arrangement is working at optimal temperature.

The technicians that carry out these tests are respected as experts in all aspects of hybrid technology.

At the end of the test, our experts will explain the test results to you clearly and simply, to help you fully understand the condition of your Toyota hybrid.

You’ll also be given an extensive and accessible written report that will provide you with the itemised information from your Hybrid Health Check, helping you make an informed decision about any further action you might feel is required.

* The Toyota Hybrid Health Check is free with your scheduled servicing. If you’re not due a service, you can have the Check carried out, at a cost of £39.

As well as this is an extension to the warranty of your battery. With each Hybrid Health Check you will get up to 1 year or 10,000 miles extension (whichever comes soonest) on your hybrid battery cover which can be renewed up to the 10th anniversary of the car’s registration with no limit on total mileage.


  1. Hi!I have a Yaris Toyota 2018, that previously belonged to my husband, and he used to use the car a lot…My husband died in July 22 and since then, the car has not been used
    Last month, I started to have driving lessons, and will take my driving test soon.The car has been giving me headaches as the battery is flat, and every time I use the ca to have my lessonsr, someone has to do the jumping start..
    The battery is new. Bought June/23 when the car service was done at our Local Toyota dealer in Bromley, London..The car has not be driven since 10 April 22 as my husband could no longer be driving his own car followimg his diagnosed of brain tumour, then, dying in July/22. I did not have my UK driving license at that time, and could not be driving the car.
    My questiion is: On 29th February, will take the car to my local Toyota for a Battery check.
    It appears that I will have no warranty, as I have not driven the car.. can you.tell me the conditions for the battery ‘s warranty? How long it lasts for?
    If I get a new battery, and dont pass in my driving test..How long do I have to be driving the car, in order to have a health 12v battery? Also: AA and Halford, said my battery is 9V only and it is FAULTY.
    Please let me understand how to keep up with this battery!
    Dont know if I change the battery, or just wait for me to pass my driving test in order to be driving my toyota.if I get a new battery, and dont pass in my driving test, I wont be driving my Toyota..and again will be having problems with the battery..
    I have been paying for Toyota service, insurance, MOT, parking permission, etc..without driving my husband’s car!! Hope I will pass in my driving test, so that I can be driving my Toyota yaris 18. Please advise!!what shall I do with my battery??
    Thank you

    1. Morning Rosa, apologies for the delay in coming back to you.

      We are so sorry to hear of your loss, Rosa.

      We hope Jemca Bromley have been able to answer all of your questions during your visit this week.

      All modern cars drain the 12v battery when they are switched off. This is due to the onboard electrical systems. If the 12v battery is not given a chance to recharge often enough, it will go flat. Read more here and pick up some tips that, if followed, can help ensure your Toyota remains in tip-top condition during an extended layoff:

      Best of luck with your driving lessons and tests, we hope you start to enjoy the Yaris very soon!

      Thank you.

  2. Hi if my hybrid Toyota is over 10 years old and has over 100k miles, do you still offer the check up service and warranty extension? What are the options for a car that is over 10 years old?

  3. Hi, I’ve just bought a used RAV4 2018. I’m worried about the traction battery life. It only has 8,100 miles on the clock and full service history with Toyota. Is the battery covered if it is not functioning efficiently? Thanks

    1. Hi Melissa, thanks for getting in touch.

      Congratulations on your recent purchase. Please could you provide the registration of the RAV4 so we best advise.

    1. Hi Dipali,thank you for getting in touch.

      Hybrid batteries do rely on regular maintenance and checks (once every 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever is first).
      We offer cover for the Hybrid Battery as long as the vehicle is serviced at a Toyota Centre where it will get a Service Activated Warranty (vehicle under 10 years or 100,000 miles,whichever is first). Terms and conditions apply.
      Please find a link to view our warranty page to see how our cover may benefit you and the Yaris:
