Beyond coronavirus: The road ahead for the automotive aftermarket

This article was written collaboratively by the Automotive & Assembly practice. The authors include Alex Brotschi, Daniel Christof, Joe Dertouzos, Sebastian Kempf, and Prashant Vaze.

Every day, healthcare experts and data analysts update models predicting the spread of coronavirus to show the extent of the human tragedy—the number of lives lost, patients hospitalized, and unemployed workers. Despite the intense scrutiny, much uncertainty persists.

Within the automotive sector, COVID-19 is a massive, once-in-a-lifetime disruption, and the situation is changing rapidly. To gain more clarity about the pandemic’s potential impact on the light-vehicle aftermarket—encompassing parts, accessories, and tire sales—we reviewed both past and current trends.

4 Auto Painting Tips for Painting Plastic Car Parts

auto painting

There’s nothing better looking than a freshly painted vehicle. Unfortunately, after vehicles are purchased and hit the road, their appearance will eventually succumb to the wear and tear of weather, sand, gravel, and other paint-damaging debris. All of these elements can slowly cause a vehicle’s plastic parts to look worn. As a future refinishing prep technician, you can help make these parts look new again by painting them with a fresh coat.

Curious to learn more about painting plastic parts? Here are four tips to get your started.

Get Used Car Values With Edmunds’ Car Value Appraisal Tool

A Quick Guide to the Edmunds Car Value Tool

The Edmunds calculator for used car values bases its pricing on data from a wide variety of sources, including dealer transactions, depreciation costs for unique automobiles, and consumer information. The appraised value is based on a number of factors, including year, make, model, trim, mileage, depreciation and features. All of these play a significant role in determining the value of your used vehicle.

The free valuation tool also has five used-vehicle condition levels: outstanding, clean, average, rough and damaged. Most people who use the tool will likely choose one of these three: clean, average or rough.

Once you’ve entered your details, you will be presented with three or four automobile values: trade-in, private party, dealer retail and certified used.

The trade-in price is what you can expect the dealer to give you if you trade in your used vehicle. This is
