Ease Of Repair

Ease of repair is a key criterion in the design phase at Volkswagen. The decisive factors to consider here are what parts are damaged in what type of accident, and how quickly and at what material cost this damage can be repaired.
Ease of repair has a positive effect on running costs in two ways. Firstly, because when repair work has to be carried out, ease of repair significantly affects parts prices and labour costs and secondly, because insurance ratings are partly based on a model’s ease of repair.
