Auto Body Repair and Car Insurance

Jim Pfau, Alan’s Collision general manager, posted a video on our Facebook page. It was about Honda vehicles’ safety after a collision. What the video showed and suggested (we’ll share it soon in an upcoming blog post) was that the quality of the auto body repair was critical to the future safety of the vehicle.
