Advantage Online Archive

However, there are a few important things to note in regards to searchability:

  • The search function from will NOT find specific articles in the archive, but will find the word "Advantage". For example, if you're looking for an article you're certain was in an Advantage article on the F-150, searching for "Ford" or "F-150" will NOT yield results for archived Advantage articles. Any technical inquires, Collision Repair News, Partial Part Replacement searches, etc. will show up as results, but not the archived Advantage before 2010.
  • If you search for "Advantage" in the RTS Portal, you will get results from the Advantage Online from 2010 and newer. For articles before 2010 go to the Advantage Online archive at You are able to search certain Advantage articles because we have republished them under the new name: Collision Repair News.

If there are any Advantage articles you would like to see added to or updated on the RTS portal, please let us know.
