ADAS technologies have revolutionized the road – and parking lots too! From backup cameras to blind spot indicators, they make driving safer, easier, and more accessible for everyone.
As convenient as ADAS-equipped vehicles are though, they need to be treated carefully when taken in for paintless dent repair – or any kind of car dent repair, really. Here’s why.
ADAS Technology Must Maintain Its Calibration to be Useful
To repair a dent, a paintless dent repair technician must sometimes remove parts of the vehicle’s exterior – a harmless procedure if you go with the right hail damage repair pros – to access the affected area with their tools. When finished, the vehicle part will be flawlessly put back together, so there’s no harm done.
Except to your ADAS system. When an entire part of your car is removed and reattached, it can drastically affect the calibration of your safety-boosting, convenience-enhancing technology. That technology will become unusable if your system is not recalibrated.
And that means:
● Your drives get harder
● Your safety could be at risk
● The safety of other drivers could be at risk
Many Car Dent Repair Services Don’t Offer Recalibration
In many cases, when you get hail dent repair done, your ADAS technology must be separately recalibrated, for the obvious reasons stated above. You shouldn’t be driving without it, especially if you’re used to its presence!
However, because ADAS-equipped vehicles are so various, not many auto hail damage repair specialists are willing to go the extra step and ensure their clients safety by providing recalibration. You’re then left to search out pricey alternatives. Plus, how will you get there? Your ADAS system is broken, rendering the vehicle you need serviced unsafe to drive.
