Automobile Manufacturers Pushing for Pre and Post Repair Inspections

Hyundai Motor America recently released a position statement, to the collision repair industry, that encourages pre- and post- repair inspections.

“Hyundai vehicles are equipped with multiple electronic components and systems within each vehicle. “Therefore, it is important that vehicles involved in a collision have a pre-repair scan and post-repair scan so that repairers are aware of any diagnostic trouble codes that may be present, regardless if a warning light or malfunction indicator light is illuminated,” the statement read.

The company continued with a description of how auto body shops will be more equipped to write accurate collision repair estimates after they have successfully conducted a pre-repair scan.

“Hyundai Motors America’s recommends conducting a pre-repair scan as appropriate to ensure safe and accurate repairs and that all vehicles receive a post-repair scan to ensure all systems and components are functioning, calibrated and communicating properly with no diagnostic trouble codes present.”

Statements from automobile experts serve as proof of the important and direct relationship between pre-/post-repair inspections and the safety of each and every driver/passenger.

Direct Repair Shops work to satisfy the insurance companies, which often push for quick and cheap repairs. These inadequate repairs can affect the value, operation and safety of your vehicle.
