In the grip of winter weather, AD is the right place to keep your car in shape!

E-mail Print

February 2012

During very cold weather, vehicles face a stern test. Flat battery, faults with the alternator, diesel injection or bodywork wear and tear... these are all of concern for drivers. Whether covered by a manufacturer's warranty or otherwise, the divisions of the AD Network, which belong to the Autodistribution Group - the French and European leader in the field of independent distribution of spare parts for cars and heavy goods vehicles - offer motorists all the benefits of a solid, structured network.

AD repair agents, multi-brand mechanical services and bodyshop experts

AD Expert garages, AD garages, AD bodyshops, Autoprimo... There are more than 3,000 repair agents working in a network covering the whole of France. General operatives and specialists, the divisions of the Autodistribution Group perform general maintenance work and more technical operations on all vehicles, irrespective of the marque. The technical and human resources available ensure that they offer motorists a top-quality service. And the same is true for the entire network of AD bodyshops, which are universally recognised by the major business providers (insurance companies) for their expertise and competence. 

Manufacturer's warranty preserved

Nowadays, thanks to new European regulations, motorists are free to have their vehicles maintained in the garage of their choice from day one, whether as part of manufacturer networks or by multibrand independents. The Autodistribution Group is a partner of the "Free yourself from received ideas" campaign (3rd edition), launched by the FEDA (French Federation of Automotive Dealership Syndicates) in association with the FNAA (French National Federation of the Automotive Crafts). The aim of this campaign is to explain to motorists that, even during the warranty period, they have the right to choose the repairer they want to maintain their vehicle, without having to use the manufacturer's own network and, in particular, without losing the manufacturer's warranty. Repairers trained in the use of the latest technology, powerful diagnostic tools developed in association with the biggest equipment manufacturers, availability of original spare parts... the divisions of the AD Network can offer customers a high level of expertise in terms of vehicle maintenance and repair, while allowing them to preserve their manufacturer's warranty and purchasing power. 

A structured organisation to satisfy every demand

Thanks to the considerable expertise of the French and European leader in the independent distribution of car parts, the repair shops in the AD networks enjoy access to a catalogue of more than one million references covering every brand including ISOTECH, the Autodistribution Group's in-house brand. Whatever the brand of vehicle, the AD networks are more than capable of taking charge of the vehicle and completing the necessary work in the shortest possible time frame, in particular thanks to the availability of parts from more than 500 Autodistribution group sales outlets throughout the country. 

Transparency, a commitment to quality

The networks of the Autodistribution Group are synonymous with quality, efficiency and great value for money. They are one of the biggest independent multibrand repair chains in Europe. This enables them to guarantee transparency in terms of price and operations, but also allows them to offer easy appointment bookings and carry out high-quality repairs to ensure driver safety.
