Subaru Opening Collision Network To Independent Shops

Subaru of America has opened enrollment in its new Subaru Certified Collision Network (SCCN) to independent collision centers across the country following a pilot program last year.

“By adding more collision centers outside of the retailer network, Subaru will grow its footprint in the collision industry and better serve its owners by providing safe and proper repairs in more locations,” according to a company statement.

Subaru has partnered with Wadsworth International to help administer the initiative. Each collision center must pass an audit and meet various criteria, including I-CAR Gold Class certification, proper tools specifications, outstanding customer service, accurate documentation procedures and the use of Genuine Subaru Collision Parts.

All certified collision centers also must participate in at least one volunteer event per year with a local 501(c)3 non-profit of their choice.
