Advanced HYBRID Vehicle Systems, (vol 1), Including Toyota and Honda models, By Mandy Concepcion

The role of the modern automotive technician has changed drastically in the past decade. The job of today’s vehicle specialist involves a deep knowledge of a wide variety of technical disciplines. Few professions encompass such a diverse understanding of technology. The automotive technician is now expected to know about chemistry, electronics, mechanics, optics, as well as posses a deep analytical mind. The last only comes with time and experience.
