ARLINGTON, Va. (Jan. 21, 2003) — American Honda Motor Co. launched its Service Express Web site as part of auto makers' promise to provide independent repair shops with access to repair information.
The National Automotive Service Task Force announced the launch. The NASTF was established in 2000 to identify and correct gaps in the availability and accessibility of OEM service information, facilitate training for technicians, promote the availability of OEM and generic diagnostic tools and communicate with automotive service professionals.
On Honda's Web site, at www.serviceexpress.honda.com, technicians can search for factory-authorized repair information for 1996 and newer vehicles. The site includes service manual procedures, advanced diagnostic information, electrical wiring diagrams, service bulletins and body repair information, NASTF said, adding that the information is the same as that available to Honda and Acura dealers.
The Honda site joins General Motors Corp., Hyundai, Volkswagen/Audi and Volvo, all of which already launched Web sites. Other auto makers aim to launch their sites in the coming weeks, the NASTF said.
