Why Select a Honda Approved Collision Repair Center?
Being a Honda Auto Body Shop means having to go thru a rigorous audit done by an independent company called Verifacts. They audit vehicles in the repair process to make sure OEM procedures are being followed. This company also audits that all the proper equipment is in place to be able to perform the repair as well. Simple things like doing a pre scan of the cars main computer to document the DTC codes that are present prior to the repairs. A post scan is also required at the end of the repairs. While working on a car, a door that has been taken apart and the car driven to the paint department will set off a DTC error code. It is important to re-assemble the car, and do a post scan which clears these DTC codes, but more importantly assures that everything is plugged in and operational for the customer.
I once took in a car to a dealership to get a factory recall taken care of. When the vehicle was returned to me, my turn signals didn’t work. I found my front turn signals were not plugged in. Turn signals not functioning is how the vehicle was given back to me. Had that service center performed a post scan, they would have uncovered the turn signals not plugged in. Air bag work was performed in my recall repair, will they operate as intended? I do not know if my airbags will work as intended because they didn’t do a post scan. This example shows why this is so important to perform pre and post scans in collision repairs. Repairs on a Honda require that we do both these pre and post scans, which are important as you can see.
