When you’re involved in an auto collision, you’ve got plenty on your mind. Between getting your car to the shop and working out transportation and insurance, you want to know that everything is getting taken care of with the utmost professionalism. Pre- and post-repair scans on airbags, collision avoidance systems, and supplemental restraint systems are essential to professional certified auto body repairs.


The Suburban Auto Body in St. Paul believes transparency throughout the repair process is essential to a job well done. That’s why we follow certification guidelines from manufacturers and get your approval on everything that needs to be done first. Here’s what you need to know about pre- and post-repair diagnostics for certain certified auto repairs.

Pre- and Post-Scans for Certified Manufacturer Repairs

A truly professional auto body and collision repair team will use the right diagnostic tools and methods to meet each manufacturer’s certifications. This is also crucial to keeping your insurance company in the loop and making sure they are willing to pay for all necessary repairs.


Many modern manufacturers offer advanced certifications on their vehicle repairs. Certified auto body repair shops use advanced diagnostic equipment in accordance with those certification requirements outlined by each manufacturer. With a pre-scan and post-scan, a technician can determine which repairs are absolutely necessary and how to better meet the manufacturer’s safe repair standards.


We use advanced diagnostics to meet these requirements:


●        Honda collision center certification

●        GM certified body shop

●        Acura auto body shop

●        SRT certified collision repair

●        And more

Safer Rides with Certified Diagnostics

Automotive technology is changing rapidly in the Information Age. Today’s new cars are designed to help drivers avoid accidents using the latest technology. Many new vehicles come with a wide range of safety features including accident sensors and internal computers.


When your car is involved in a collision, those sensors need to be recalibrated properly and repaired so that the original safety features remain intact. This makes a safer ride for everyone on the road from drivers to pedestrians. That’s why many original equipment manufacturers require certifications and ask technicians to perform diagnostic scans during the repair process.
