Hyundai Motor America has launched the Hyundai Recognized Collision Repair Center program to help Hyundai vehicle owners find qualified repair providers following a crash.

“This program ensures both independent and Hyundai dealership-owned collision repair centers have the training, tools, equipment, and facilities needed to properly repair Hyundai vehicles after they have been involved in a collision,” Hyundai said in a released statement.

Qualified repair centers will display the Hyundai Recognized Collision Repair Center plaque.

“Hyundai owners benefit from this program through the assurance that centers will ensure the fit, finish, durability, safety and value of the vehicles being repaired,” said Frank Ferrara, executive vice president of customer satisfaction for Hyundai Motor America.

Hyundai has teamed with Assured Performance Network on this program. The nonprofit group will ensure that facilities in the program meet specified requirements and pass an annual onsite audit and inspection. Assured Performance Network will also manage enrollment, online support systems, proof-of-compliance documentation and marketing.
