Aluminum Body Repair
There are many positives when it comes to owning an aluminum bodied car. Along with being much more fuel efficient than its counterparts, an aluminum body car is also lightweight and relatively corrosive resistant. In the past, most cars that had aluminum bodies were higher grade automobiles made by manufacturers like Audi, Porsche, and Jaguar. However, with Ford recently making the decision that they are going to start making their F150’s out of approximately 95% aluminum there might very well be more and more aluminum body cars on the road. You might even have one of these types of cars now or will in the very near future. So, why the switch over to aluminum bodied cars? And what does this mean for you. To start, since aluminum is much lighter than steel, that translates into lighter cars. And lighter cars or trucks means better fuel efficiency for all of us owners and drivers of a car. This is great news! Aluminum is also relatively corrosive resistant which can mean fewer repairs caused from weathering or aging.
However, that being said, if you’re ever caught in a car accident, which we here at Excel Collision Centers never hope you are, repairing an aluminum body can be much more difficult and complicated than a steel bodied car. As it stands right now, some have said that fewer than 20% of auto repair shops will have the capabilities or training to repair aluminum body cars.
