Advancing car technology and repairs

It's no secret that technology is advancing at lightning speed. In the automotive world, this progress is more apparent than ever. Gone are the days when your car was just an engine on wheels that simply got you from A to B. Nowadays, cars come packed with features that wouldn't look out of place in a sci-fi movie.

From lane-keeping and park assist systems to 360-degree cameras that give you eyes in the back of your head (well, almost), these high-tech features are becoming standard in newer vehicles and let's not forget the eco-friendly revolution of fully electric vehicles slowly taking over car parks.

Changing the Game in Repairs

With these innovations, it's no surprise that car repair are very different from what they were a decade or two ago. When it comes to newer cars, a bodywork repair isn't just about fixing dings and dents, its about restoring the car or van back to the state it was in before the damage happened, both outside and inside.

Here's the kicker: when parts are removed and replaced or repaired in these advanced cars, it can trigger the need for recalibration. Why, you ask? Well, it's all about safety and  making sure that the cutting-edge technology works as it should. You don't want your lane-keeping assistance system mistaking the pavement for a lane, right?

The Electric Edge

Now, let's talk about electric vehicles, they come with their own set of unique considerations when it comes to repairs. Unlike traditional fuel vehicles, EVs have high-voltage systems and battery packs that require special attention. Additional steps need to be taken to ensure the vehicle is in a safe state for repair. Technicians working on electric cars need to be extra cautious and well-trained to handle the specifics of these vehicles so there are no shocks during the process…quite literally.
