Hybrid Cars Starting to Show Wear 'n Tear


The first wave of hybrid cars was about ten years ago, now some parts on those Toyota Priuses are wearing out, along with the car warranties.  The trouble is,  a lot of independent mechanics don't know how to fix them.  Russ Jones, with Portland Community College, says they're providing education for new and experienced mechanics on how to fix the complex vehicles.  The battery packs are extremely expensive to replace; that's why PCC instructors and students are researching part repairs that could lead to more affordable fixes.
