Auto Accident prevention systems like front crash avoidance technology and lane departure warning systems play a significant role in protecting motorists and passengers. However, when there is any malfunctioning or problems reported with these systems, repairs can be challenging to complete.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is reporting on a recent analysis of the repairs of auto crash prevention systems in automobiles. Many of these systems including rear view camera systems and blind spot detection systems can play a tremendous role in helping keep motorists safe and preventing car accidents. However, when motorists take these cars in for repairs after the technology malfunctions or because the system is giving an error message, or after an auto accident, they find that repairs are not always satisfactory. According to the study, many motorists continue to face problems with the technology even after repairs have apparently been completed.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study surveyed approximately 500 drivers. Most of the drivers in the study had taken in their car for repairs after experiencing problems with the safety technology in their automobile. In some cases, the problems appeared after an auto accident while in other cases, the repairs were the result of a recall or the result of a recommendation by the automobile repair shop. Repair issues were more likely to be seen when the car had been involved in a car accident. Incomplete repairs were also much more likely to be seen in those cases in which the windshield replacement was required as part of auto repairs.
