Today’s Connected Car Requires Certified Collision Repair Knowledge
“Tomorrow’s car will drive itself.” That futuristic statement has quickly become a reality. Today’s vehicles are so advanced, they not only can drive themselves, but some can even alert your collision repair shop the moment an accident occurs.
From dashcams and cellular technology that pings drivers when they venture outside of a lane or too close to nearby obstacles, to phone apps that can open a car’s trunk, our vehicles are becoming increasingly smarter and more technologically advanced. And that smart technology requires highly trained repair technicians when something goes awry.
That’s why accident repair centers are investing heavily in specialized certified technician training exclusively offered by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). OEM-certified collision repair facilities ensure that exterior parts fit seamlessly and advanced driver assist safety systems are properly reset. Failure to do so could result in errant warning lights, steering wheel vibration or even a complete system shutdown while operating the vehicle.
So in the unfortunate event of an accident, remember that there’s a lot more riding on your vehicle than just body repair. There’s a high level of technology under the hood that must be re-calibrated — which is something only an OEM-certified collision repair center (like ours!) can offer.
