Anderson Cooper – Body Shops say Insurance Companies are skimping on repairs.
Auto Body shops throughout the nation say that insurance companies skimp on safety in order to pad their pockets. When insurance companies skimp on paying for safety it leaves the consumer in an unsafe vehicle. Anderson Cooper investigates poor repairs done at an “Insurance Company Recommended Body Shop” and the behind the scenes look at the side deals these body shops have with insurance companies, which the consumer usually has no clue about. These side deals force the body shops to do the bare minimum to fix your car, including using aftermarket, used, or reconditioned parts. These items can be a serious safety issue and attorney generals in several states are suing the insurance companies over this issue.

Honda is a safety system
Honda is a safety system, when your Honda is involved in an accident aftermarket/imitation (non Honda) parts can cause the vehicle’s airbag system to deploy more slowly. Aftermarket Bumpers, bumper beams, headlights, hoods, doors, and fenders can cause the vehicle’s safety system to not react properly. Honda performed a crash test a with Honda bumper parts and did the same crash test using commonly available aftermarket parts, the aftermarket parts caused the airbags to deploy several seconds slower than then Honda parts, which would lower the NHSTA’s crash rating from a 5 star rating to a 4 star rating.
