CNN article focuses on the rising complexity of collision repair

A CNN Business article highlighted the rising difficulty of fixing cars after even minor accidents, due to the increasing use of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) like automatic emergency braking. These systems rely on sensors and cameras that can be easily damaged in a collision, requiring expensive replacements and calibrations to ensure they function properly. The cost of repairing these systems can increase repair costs by up to 37.6%, according to a recent AAA study.

The article also pointed out that the rising adoption of ADAS features is not just driven by automaker competition but also mandated by safety regulators like NHTSA. This rapid integration of technology means repair shops need to invest in specialized equipment and training to keep up. With even seemingly simple components like air conditioning units now incorporating advanced features, technicians need a broader skillset to address the complex needs of modern vehicles.
