As newer cars roll off the factory floor with more advanced safety features our roads will surely become safer. Features like Radar Blind Spot Monitoring, Front & Rear Sensors, and even Forward Collision Warning come standard on higher-end vehicles or higher trim levels. But the need for safer roads is not just limited to those who can afford the higher trim level or the luxury vehicle.
Car dealers and consumers alike need to know that they can leverage Aftermarket Technology to make the roads safer. Often consumers feel pressured to get features that they truly don’t want just to get the safety features they need.
Let’s dive deeper into Radar Blind Spot Monitoring or Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), according to NHTSA which conducted a thorough analysis of this technology and uncovered the following: BSMs were available on 206 different vehicle models from 23 different manufacturers. The average price of a vehicle equipped with BSM was $68,029, and the prices ranged from $20,280 to $213,200. When it was not a standard option, the average cost to add BSM was $4,187. Those numbers seem rather steep and with the current state of the economy they can also appear to be unobtainable for some. Only if they knew that they can get the same safety feature professionally installed for less than 1/2 that price.
Perhaps another barrier for NOT leveraging aftermarket technology is the fact that is was not factory-installed, assuming that the equipment would be substandard in its performance. We can’t speak for any other shop, but Auto Action Group only uses Aftermarket Technology that is OEM equivalent. Why is that important? OEM products are going to match what’s being replaced and that guarantees function and quality. You’ll be getting the same performance you expect and need from your equipment with an OEM replacement part because it was designed and tested under the same rigorous manufacturer standards. Having said that – the only thing preventing them from making that choice is the fact that they didn’t know that option was available to them.
