At Budd Baer Collision Center you can rest assure that we are investing in the necessary technology to offer the safest and most reliable repairs possible.

Vehicle Scanning

Today's vehicles have more computer systems and lines of code than a fighter jet, so it is no surprise that when your vehicle is in an accident or parts are removed to perform a repair, your computer systems will need to be calibrated and checked to make sure everything is functioning properly. Budd Baer Collision Center scans every vehicle before and after repairs to make sure that your vehicle is back to factory settings. 



Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

If your vehicle is equipped with Accident Avoidance, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure, Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, or any of the other ADAS systems available today, making sure they are repaired per factory recommendations is vital to the safe operation of your vehicle. At Budd Baer Collision Center those considerations are factored into every repair, right down to the final test drive.
