At Darrell's Firestone you'll find the expertise and premium parts needed to get your hybrid or electric vehicle back on the road in no time. The days of being stuck with dealer repairs, and the sky high bills that come with them, are over. At Darrell's Firestone you'll find highly trained and qualified mechanics with expertise in every area that makes your hybrid or EV different from everyday vehicles, such as electric drivetrain components and regenerative braking systems.
Your hybrid car's electric motor allows it to save gas when driving around in stop and go traffic. Getting your car rolling strains your engine much more than cruising along at a steady pace. This is where the torque of an electric motor comes into the hybrid drive system, and where your gas savings come from. At Darrell's Firestone, our experts are trained to keep those savings coming, by ensuring that the electric motors in your hybrid or EV are in optimal working condition. We provide diagnostic testing, repairs, and preventative maintenance for drivers near Farmington to make sure your hybrid or EV remains at peak performance.
Without your vehicle's battery and charging systems, those fuel-saving electric motors will have no power to turn. The specialized batteries in hybrid and electric vehicles are the costliest part of the entire system, so they should be serviced by mechanics that have expert training in the field. At Darrell's Firestone we ensure that only certified technicians, fully trained across all major manufacturers' power systems, will service your vehicle's battery and charging systems. As with your vehicle's electric motors, we can diagnose and repair issues, as well as sourcing and installing quality replacement parts should the job require it.
The capacity for regenerative braking is another clever feature of your hybrid or EV. This kind of braking essentially puts the electric motor(s) into reverse, assisting the mechanical brake pads and slowing the vehicle while generating electricity to charge the battery. A beneficial side effect of this system is the longevity that drivers see in the life of their brake system. At Darrell's Firestone we carefully monitor your vehicle's brake pads to ensure the pads last as long as possible, saving you even more money in the process. When it's finally time to replace the pads, we'll have you back on the road within a matter of hours.

What People Say About Us
I cannot say how happy I was to see this place! The air pressure in my tires was low and one was dangerously low. Every gas station air machine that I passed was out of order. I pulled into Firestone and the super nice guys filled ALL my tires with a smile. THANK YOU!
Professional work at reasonable prices.
I took my old Ford Ranger in for a fuel leak. They fixed that problem and also found some broken, rusted out parts that were making the ride extremely rough. They replaced the shackles and tie rods and the truck rides better than it has in years.
I had an emergency with my lug nuts coming off and post breaking while I was driving and was pretty far from my house. I called the nearest tire shop and spoke with Jason about my situation. I'm so glad I went to Darrell's Firestone because they were super nice, fit me in asap and made sure my car was safe to drive home. I am super grateful. Would totally go there again when I don't have an emergency!
My 1996 Chevy pick up started running rough. I took it to Darrells. The mechanic worked his tail off to diagnose a very rare and strange issue. He was able to fix it and came in 600 dollars under the quote. Chris was my customer service agent and he was amazing. He kept me informed and was very thorough in his explaining the issue. This garage is trustworthy and honest as the day is long. I will come back for any and all of my mechanical and maintenance needs.
