The Cost of Automobile Repair in 2017 and the Impact on Rates

As the economy has improved, people have purchased more new vehicles at a record pace. These new vehicles are more often equipped with new safety features that have NOT helped bring down accident rates. But, these new safety features sure are costly to repair after there is an accident. These safety features will also work to drive up the cost of automobile insurance.

Check out this quick illustration. Based on everything we read and see, distracted driving is up significantly countrywide and appears to far outweigh the value of these automobile safety features.
