How Many Body Shops Follow the Factory Repair Procedure For Every Repair?
GMC polled auto body shops and found that out of 827 responses, 80% of them do not open their repair procedures for every repair. This number is troubling, to say the least, and indicates an issue in the collision repair industry.
When an auto body shop fails to consult the repair procedures published by the manufacturer, this usually means that they have decided to fix your vehicle they way they’re “accustomed” to. By doing this, they’re ignoring the engineering that went into making your vehicle safe. Repairs that do not follow manufacturer procedures can alter the intended structure of your vehicle, and the consequences can be serious.
