With 2013 we’re one step closer to the future. I feel the appropriate joke to make at the moment is to ask where my flying car is. One thing that is undergoing a major change in the coming year will be how your car gets serviced. Chrysler is leading the way in bringing a new way of having your car looked at.
Detroit News lays out just how much a difference you going to be seeing when you pull your car in to the service department. You’ll now be greeted by someone with an iPad in hand. They’ll plug the device into your vehicle and be able to see all the important information for it. Everything from how much air pressure is in your tires to seeing any recalls in effect for any parts currently on your car.
Chrysler is wanting to keep ahead of the competition by having the tech edge. “We hope it will increase the customer experience and increase the loyalty of our customers,” says Pietro Gorlier, president of Mopar. “We believe it is a real competitive advantage for our dealers.”
The new system will operate with a cloud system that the iPad connects to. Once the technician has the vehicle all hooked up, all the information linked to the car on the cloud will be at his instant access. It will lead to a much better customer experience and a more thorough diagnosis for any problems.
Chrysler is still getting everything to work the way they want it to. They want this technology in all their dealerships before the end of 2013. The march of progress is always fascinating, and in this case, is a welcome improvement for the consumer.
