A hybrid vehicle may seem more complex than a typical Honda, but it still has a motor, a transmission, brakes, an exhaust system, just like a gasoline-powered vehicle. Because the basic systems are the same, a hybrid still requires maintenance and repair the way other vehicles do. Your oil needs to be changed, hoses need to be replaced, and brakes need to be serviced or replaced.
The main difference between a hybrid and a gasoline powered vehicle is that a hybrid has an additional system which needs to be monitored as the service requirements are very low. This system is collectively referred to as the hybrid system (though it is modular) and includes the battery pack, inverter, high voltage electrical system, and computer systems.
