Ease of repair
Ease of repair is an important criterion in the design stage at Volkswagen. This is decided by which parts are damaged by which types of accident, how quickly this damage can be repaired and which material costs are involved.
Great ease of repair has a positive impact on maintenance costs which is two-fold. First of all, it has a crucial impact on parts prices and labour costs, and secondly, a vehicle’s insurance premium classification is based on the specific model’s ease of repair.
