Q. My insurance company recommended an auto body repair shop that isn’t Nissan certified. Does it really matter?
A. Yes, it really matters. It’s worth considering that the consumer and the insurance company may have different goals. A vehicle owner is concerned with repair quality while an insurance company’s first priority may be to control cost.
Q. How is Nissan collision repair different?
A. Like other industries, collision repair has advanced over the last decade. Auto body repair is not limited to replacing bumpers, fenders and fixing dents. Technology has advanced in every aspect of our lives, including our vehicles. Each late model Nissan is equipped with an advanced computer system. The onboard computers control everything from your power seat to lane departure warnings.
To make certain that all technology is fully functioning, Nissan certified collision repair facilities are required to pre and post diagnostic scan. The scan will provide a great deal of data and definitely more than the few driver indicator lights on your dashboard. The scanner used at Airpark Collision Center is approved by the Nissan Certified Collision Repair program.
Q. Who will repair my Nissan?
A. A Nissan certified collision center is required to maintain I-Car Gold Class designation, an industry standard and complete repair classes specific to Nissan brand vehicles.
Q. What can I expect from a Nissan Certified Collision Center?
A. Nissan collision repair facilities are equipped with approved equipment, materials and extensive technician required training. In addition, customers of Airpark Collision Center’s can expect to treated in a professional manner in a clean and orderly environment.
Q. What if my repair is minor and another facility will allow me to drop off sooner?
A. Many times customers assume their vehicle’s repair is minor, when in reality it is not minor. A vehicle owner may only see the “dent” but often surrounding panels or trim may also suffer damage.
In addition, no one knows what is damaged underneath until exterior panels are removed. Is any mechanical in need of repair or replacement? Sometimes upon impact the on-board computers are shaken. A complete repair plan is needed to identify all collision damage.
Q. My Nissan has both steel and aluminum panels. Does your facility have the capability to complete proper repairs?
A. Most auto body technicians are trained to repair steel. Only in the last few years has aluminum been used in vehicle construction. The technique to repair steel is different than the technique to repair aluminum. Also, different tools and equipment are needed.
It is very easy to ruin an aluminum panel if an untrained technician uses traditional steel repair methods and tools. Airpark Collision Center is equipped with specialized aluminum equipment, a clean room for aluminum repair and is an aluminum certified collision repair center.
Q. Will the new paint match the existing paint?
A. Paint is applied at the Nissan manufacturing plant in either a 2, 3 or 4 stage process. Airpark Collision Center uses premium products approved by Nissan to deliver quality refinishing. Our refinish technicians will replicate the 2, 3 or 4 stage process and bake in our state of the art down draft paint booth.
In addition to Nissan collision repair manufacturer certification, Airpark Collision Center is I-Car Gold Class Certified. It is estimated that ONLY 10% of auto body repair facilities across the United States have achieved this high level of certification. Our technicians receive annual hands on and classroom training.
This recertification process assures our customers that our technicians have the latest training and can successfully complete repairs on newer model vehicles. As vehicle technology changes each year, choosing the right Nissan auto body repair shop is paramount to passenger safety.
Whether your vehicle was chosen for design, performance, durability or function, Airpark Collision Center is recommended by the manufacturer as Scottsdale’s Nissan auto body repair shop.
