IMR Study Reveals Many Variables to Why Lighting on a Vehicle is Replaced

According to IMR Inc.’s Continuing Consumer Automotive Maintenance Survey (CCAMS), there is not one major factor that brings motorists to get their lighting on their vehicle serviced.

“Based on our CCAMS survey, whether it is a DIYer or do-it-for-me (DIFM) car owner, while we know 71 percent of lighting repairs are performed due to failure, there is not one overwhelming reason why motorists initially go in for repair that results in the lighting on their vehicle being replaced,” said Bill Thompson, president and CEO of IMR Inc. “It might be the service indicator light or a motorist might just notice it is not working. However, whatever the reason, independent repair shops and retailers need to have lighting on hand because this service opportunity could come at a moment’s notice.”
