American Honda Launches Two New Editions of Body Repair News

Publication aims to help collision repairers understand why using factory service information is important to making safe and complete repairs.

American Honda has announced two new editions of Body Repair News, a collision industry publication from American Honda covering new Honda and Acura model body repair information.

The first issue covers the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In and Hybrid. The second issue covers the 2011-’13 and new 2014 Odyssey, featuring a new, increased level of high-strength steel.

Body Repair News, free to independent collision repair shops, is part of a series of American Honda publications created to support new models, highlighting new and different substrates and technologies. An edition of Body Repair News will be issued for every future new model. Any minor model change where significant body design changes are made will also have a body repair publication issued.

Body Repair News summarizes new body and vehicle technology that may affect collision and other body repairs. However, it is not intended to replace the detailed information contained in the body repair and service manuals. Rather, it simply helps collision repair industry personnel understand why using the factory service information is so important to make safe and complete repairs.

Moving forward, future editions of Body Repair News will not be announced but simply placed on American Honda’s Service Express website. Shops are encouraged to check the Service Express site periodically for updates.
