LA CAA Hosts Rick Leos April 10

Rick Leos with Toyota Motors continues to make the rounds visiting several California Autobody Association chapters. On April 10 he is the guest speaker at the Los Angeles CAA chapter in Torrance, CA.

Leos is the Toyota Motors Sales Collision Business Development Consultant and will give his overview of the advancements the vehicle manufacturer is making to provide comprehensive estimate data to aid in the preparation of repair blueprints that reflect the OEM recommended procedures.

The program, known as “Predictive Estimating,” allows repairers a convenient way to get all the information they need to repair the vehicle. Repairers simply click on a button to pull up a PDF file that provides all the documented detail needed to repair the vehicle. This is the exact same information you can retrieve from the information provider databases. Toyota is in discussions with the other vehicle manufacturers to get on board with this approach, so they can provide a comprehensive, industry-wide solution that ensures quality and safe repairs.

Registration begins at 6 p.m. and the meeting begins at 6:30 at the Toyota USA Automobile Mueseum, 19600 Van Ness Ave in Torrance.

Cost is $45 for CAA members or $100 for non members.

RSVP to Cindy Shillito, CAA Southern Representative, at 714-944-4028 or radiatorgirl@socal.rr.com.
