Repair Bills for Minor Collisions on Vehicles with Advanced Safety Systems
With the advancement in automobile technology, many drivers are finding it hard to maintain the unexpected repair bills even for minor damages in the new models and upgraded old model vehicles.
Reason for the Skyrocketing Prices
According to new research by AAA in Heathrow, the advanced system installed on vehicles is costing twice the amount. Features such as a blind spot monitoring, emergency braking and lane departure warning comes with high expenditure that most vehicle owners are not yet aware of.
Minor collision can cause a financial loss especially when the damaged sensors are located behind the bumpers, windshield and door mirrors. Such repairs could cost over $3000 when professionals do not fix them.
What Vehicle Owners Should Know
It is therefore crucial for the owners to understand the technology, model, performance and cost of the technology that they are using in their vehicles to be financially prepared for maintenance if something should happen to their car.
Location and type of the sensors used in the vehicle and where to find replacement and repair cost are some variables to consider while purchasing or installing safety features in a car. Being informed about the price variable can significantly cut down the cost and duration of repair works.
For standard ADAS repair in Orlando, the price ranges are as follows:
Vehicles with front radar sensors, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking systems cost between $900to $1,300

If your vehicle supports front camera sensors along with adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, lane keeping and lane departure warning systems, the cost of repair excluding the cost of windshield replacement will range from $850 to $1900.
Rear camera sensor, side mirror or front mirror along with around-view system would cost $500 to $1,100.
Ultrasonic sensors on the rear or front of the vehicle used with parking assist systems costs between $500 to $1300.
