It seems like automakers come out with new car safety features every year, but how do you know if they will save you from expensive collision repairs? This brief video from Consumer Reports may answer some of your questions about the performance of some of the latest auto safety features.
Reviewers found that practical systems such as 360° cameras, blind spot alert, and automatic braking were all effective at reducing the likelihood of auto accidents. However, features that intuitively sense danger such as pre-crash and lane departure warning systems were frequently overly sensitive.
Of course, no amount of auto safety features can completely eliminate the possibility of an accident, which is why Schiro’s Collision Repairs is here to provide reliable auto repair services in the North Hollywood and Chatsworth areas. Call (818) 641-1797 today for more information.

While an auto collision often leaves you little other choice than to rely on a professional auto body repair shop, following a few simple guidelines can help you keep your car running safely. The best time to start thinking about car repairs is before you actually need them, so learn more about essential preventative auto maintenance below:
Tires are the only contact your vehicle has with the ground; unfortunately, it’s not always easy to determine if there are any problems with your tires from behind the wheel, so be sure to periodically check your tires for signs of wear or misalignment.
A wheel misalignment can seem more like a minor annoyance than a serious problem, but it can severely affect a vehicle’s balance and grip during turns and braking. Additionally, it can also lead to irregular tire wear, possibly resulting in early tire replacement.
Most brake pads have built-in wear indicators which emit an audible screeching noise when they wear down to a certain point. However, be aware that these indicators may wear and fall off, or they may even be entirely absent on cheaper aftermarket parts.
Worn wiper blades fail to adequately remove moisture from the windshield, resulting in reduced vision and increased glare, especially at night. Windshield wipers generally last about six months, though the frequency of wiper replacements will vary by brand and local weather conditions.
California traffic law requires two working headlights an all passenger vehicles during darkness, inclement weather, or any other conditions which prevent a person from clearly seeing a distance of 1,000 feet. Be sure to periodically check for broken taillights and brake lights, as they won’t necessarily be apparent while you’re behind the wheel.
