Computerized Vehicle Analysis (CVA-North America) is proud to introduce the Evolution 3, the foremost above-ground diagnostic lane featuring the world’s first extra-low alignment Side Slip Meter, Suspension Tester by Resonance (light and heavy vehicles), and Brake Tester.
The CVA Evolution 3 is a modular system that provides technicians with objective data about a vehicle’s alignment, suspension and brake system in less than five minutes. The test procedures are completely automated and non-invasive. Real-time diagnostic results are displayed on screen and indicate the yields, amplitudes and average difference side-to-side and front-to-rear. These results are available in an easy-to-read, customizable print-out.
“Most installers are just looking for something a piece of data to show the customer that a vehicle’s shocks are bad. (This solution) is what was missing,” said Bill Dennie, ride control channel director for Tenneco Inc.
“In conducting more than 10,000 tests over the past four years, we found the ride control failure rate to be approximately 40 percent through the use of Evolution 3,” said Darin Dullum, vice president of sales and marketing, CVA-North America. “I have witnessed the increased confidence of the technician in presenting this system’s objective results to the consumer.
“The ability to improve the relationship between the automotive service provider and consumer through reliable, objective data is what motivated us to bring this technology to North America.”
First introduced in November 2006 at Automechanika in Buenos Aires, the Evolution 3 test lane drew large crowds of technicians and shop owners and was featured in print news coverage and cable television programs. CVA’s South American customer partners already include Ford, Peugeot, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Dana and Yokohama.
The CVA Evolution 3 is available immediately within North America. In addition to shop installations, the mobile Evolution 3 unit is ideal for use in manufacturer training, safety demonstrations and other events.
“This technology is the result of increased demand by automotive technicians for technological developments to be more competitive and efficient,” said Constantino Abella, president of Control Vehicular Argentino (CVA-SA). “We have worked with top ride control manufacturers, experts and leading educators to give the technicians the tools to help them be more efficient in a competitive marketplace.”
