As 2021 rolls in, we can reflect back on what the previous year had to offer. Let's take a look at some of the collision industry information you've been most interested in from this past year. These are the most popular articles from 2020.

The most popular article titled Pre- and Post-Repair System Scanning Position Statements was published in January of 2019 and made our top 10 list last year as well. This is a compiled list of I-CAR's Reparability Technical Support (RTS) articles that highlight OEMs that have a pre- and post-repair system scanning position statement, and how to find them. In addition, there is information on the Automotive Service Association (ASA) and Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) position statements as well

The article is updated as additional information is published. I-CAR's RTS team remains committed to keeping you informed on industry changes as they happen.

You will also notice that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and calibration continue to remain a popular topic. As the use of ADAS continues to grow, understanding its functionality and repair procedures remains imperative to the collision repair industry.
