On March 28th, Hyundai Motor America released a position statement recommending that collision repair facilities perform diagnostic scans on vehicles both before and after the collision repair process.
According to the statement:
Hyundai vehicles are equipped with multiple electronic components and systems within each vehicle. Therefore, it is important that vehicles involved in a collision have a pre-repair scan and post-repair scan so that repairers are aware of any diagnostic trouble codes that may be present, regardless if a warning light or malfunction indicator light is illuminated.
A pre-repair scan will alert the repairer to diagnostic trouble codes
