Vehicle technology is evolving faster than ever before. Repair focus is gradually shifting away from physical tools to software nuance as mechanical control is relinquished in favour of electronics. First fuelling, then brakes, suspension, steering and even air conditioning; computers have been gradually taking control of vehicles over the past three to four decades.
Tools for the job
Up-to-date, correct diagnostic tools are vital to help achieve garage best practice.
