    I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good hybrid mechanic in the Tampa Bay area. I know these cars can be tricky for just any mechanic to work on so I want to make sure I’m going somewhere good where they’re honest and know what they’re doing. I know that’s probably a lot to ask LOL

    If you’re gonna take the car to him I would probably call and make an appointment before hand. They are pretty busy. I bought my 2008 off of him and it’s been great. 283k miles on it.

    Todd is the best. Home - Tampa Hybrids Inc.

    And I agree that you should call first. The number on the contact page is his cell. If he's busy with a customer, he won't answer, but if you leave a text with a brief explanation, he's good about calling back. As I said in your other thread, he's my go-to guy when I'm stumped or need stuff.
