NAPA® Echlin® offers 8,000+ Collision Repair Parts. These parts range from Blind Spot Detection Sensors to Active Grille Shutters to Anti-lock Brake Sensors. NAPA® Echlin® parts are engineered to meet or exceed the damaged part they are replacing for fit, form and function.
The collision market is large and growing, and extends well beyond bodywork and paint. In 2020, there were 13.3 million total vehicle crashes with 19.9 million damaged vehicles. In Q4 2021, nearly 16% of all repairs included a repair or replace of nearly two camera, radar or sensor parts. For the entire year, 20% of claims covered vehicles with at least one Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) feature. (The rest were for older vehicles without these features.)

The frequency of accidents shows little sign of slowing. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently released a study that confirms what many already suspected: the main reason for rear-end collisions is driver inattention. An older NHTSA study shows that nearly 50% of two-vehicle crashes are rear-end crashes, and that drivers are inattentive to upcoming traffic nearly 90% of the time.
NAPA® Echlin® serves the Collision Repair market with categories in the following groups:
• Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)
• Actuators and Sensors
