WOODRIDGE, Ill. — The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP), a non-profit association that aims to build trust between motorists and automotive repair service providers, has launched a redesigned website to educate and assist consumers more effectively.
The new motorist.org website is designed to educate consumers on their vehicle and its systems as well as connect motorists with local service providers that have agreed to participate in the MAP process, the association said.
The MAP process focuses on improving transparency and trust and guides service providers through a consistent vehicle inspection using thousands of standards resulting in recommendations that are communicated in a way a motorist understands.
The website incorporates a "responsive" design that allows viewers to see and gather information on any electronic device — smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop.
In addition to informing motorists on the MAP inspection/selling process and local shops in their area, the site offers motorists the ability to check for safety and other recalls on their vehicles, learn about critical information related to vehicle ownership that includes extensive education on vehicle systems — both through videos and animations that show how the vehicle systems work — as well as a library of automotive-related articles.
