(FOX CAROLINA) – An Arizona car owner says he was shocked when he heard how much it would cost to replace a battery in his hybrid vehicle.
Lucas Turner told KPHO that he recently took his 2014 Infiniti hybrid to a dealership for a check engine light. He said he knew something was wrong but wasn’t expecting it to be this bad. “They told me that I need a new hybrid battery and it’s going to cost $18,000 for the battery and another $2,000 to have it installed,” Turner said.
