KYB Launches Crash Avoidance Systems Awareness, Training Campaign
Nov. 17, 2015—KYB Americas Corp. launched a new Crash Avoidance Systems Awareness and Training Campaign during the 2015 Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week in Las Vegas. The campaign is aimed at helping service providers communicate the importance of ride control maintenance to help keep a vehicle’s computerized crash avoidance system working within its designed capabilities.
“Statistics show that vehicles 4 to 8-years-old are the most likely to be involved in an accident and vehicle accident fatalities are on the rise. We believe one of the causes for this is under-maintained ride control,” said “Mac” McGovern, KYB director of marketing and training. “Alerting the motorist and educating the shop on the need to maintain ride control performance is becoming critical as more & more crash avoidance systems-equipped vehicles become older. KYB is committed to providing this awareness and the needed communication materials to help the motorist stay in control.”
KYB’s distribution customers can arrange a 30-minute, in-shop training clinic or can provide a group code to attend an interactive online self-paced study clinics that includes handouts.
