Explaining the Benefits of Paintless Dent Repair

Paintless Dent Repair, or PDR, is a state-of-the-art technique to remove dings and dents out of a vehicle’s body. As the name suggests, this type of dent repair is performed without having to repaint the exterior. While PDR may not be magic, it’s as close to automotive wizardry as you’ll find in the industry. And here’s why:

Dent Repair

  1. Paintless Dent Repair is extremely cost-effective. There’s no additional material or labor cost associated with PDR that would otherwise be attached to standard dent removal.
  2. Traditional dent repair can be time-consuming, especially when taking into account the effort it takes to sand, color-match and apply paint, and insert body filler. PDR is quite the opposite, with repair completion times ranging from a couple of hours to a day, at most.
  3. The quality of work is always superior. There’s never an issue with mismatched paint or poor sanding jobs.
  4. PDR can seamlessly fix small-to-medium dents, including those the size of a large grapefruit.
  5. Older vehicles, particularly antique cars, benefit greatly from PDR, as there’s little risk of damaging the exterior using paintless repair techniques.
  6. It’s environmentally friendly since there are no chemicals, solvents, or toxic paints being utilized.
  7. PDR allows you to retain your car’s original lustrous appearance.

Typically, PDR can fix up all the common dings your vehicle may encounter, including those created by other car doors, hail, pebbles, and that mailbox you swore wasn’t there when you started reversing. To know if your car is a prime candidate for Paintless Dent Repair, a quick visit to your local auto body shop might be warranted.

The 2018 Mazda 3 Continues the “Zoom-Zoom” Tradition

Modern times call for modern solutions, so Mazda wisely included several newly standard features across the 2018 Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback lineups—and with nary a boost in sticker price, too.

All three trims (Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring) now come equipped with automatic emergency brakes (Smart City Brake Support). For the mid-range Mazda 3 Touring, new elegant yet muscular aluminum wheels set the stage for a similarly sophisticated cabin, which comes with new illuminated vanity mirrors and a handy sunglass holding compartment. The top-tier Mazda 3 Grand Touring gets bulkier thanks to a fully loaded Premium Package that includes Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, and more; this Premium Package is standard on Grand Touring models with automatic transmissions.
