Dent Repair on a Volkswagen
Volkswagen, or VW, is the flagship brand of the best selling automaker Volkswagen Group. The vision of the automaker is simple, “to make this world a mobile, sustainable place with access to all the citizens“, and they have already achieved this through worldwide record sales of their reliable and sustainable vehicles in 2016 and 2017.
VW makes some of the safest and cleanest cars on the road. Their models such as the Passat, Eos, Touareg, Phaeton and Jetta are all built on the premise of sustainable reliability for the masses. If you drive a VW you probably already know how reliable, durable and eco friendly they can be.
But even the most durable of vehicles are prone to damages on the go and there is nothing that can be done to prevent them, such is the nature of driving, especially in dense cities. So what do you do if your classic Beetle or brand new Golf ends up with a dent?
Simple, you get a Paintless Dent Repair.
What is a Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)
A PDR, short for Paintless Dent Repair, is the most modern and innovative approach to traditional dent repair for fixing the dents, dings or creases on your VW. PDR is a game changer in dent repairing, it is a three step process that repairs dents in a way that leaves no traces of any damage in the first place.
The three steps of the PDR process are:
- Cleaning your VW to remove dirt and dust from the body.
- Placing your VW under a UV light to correctly identify all the damaged areas.
- Repairing the damaged areas using a glue slab or by massaging the back of the dented body part.
This is a highly technical process that requires the hands of a skilled and experienced technician to execute properly.
Benefits of PDR
The benefits of PDR make it the first best option for many car owners and enthusiast, they include:
Save Time and Money
Unlike traditional dent repairs, PDR does not require the material and labor costs of fillers and repainting, this makes it a pocket friendly solution for any VW owner. Additionally, because there is no repainting involved, PDR is a much faster dent repair solution that only takes a few hours.
No Car Reports
The low cost of PDR means you can pay out-of-pocket and never have to file a report with your insurance company. This will further save you time and money on paper work and premiums.
Retain Resale Value
PDR allows you to repair dents in a way that does not tamper with the original paint coat of your VW. This will prolong the life of your VW and retain its resale value because you maintain originality by not getting the dented body parts repainted.
