SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. have renewed their approval of BASF's refinish systems for repairs under warranty. The approvals follow a series of rigorous and comprehensive technical evaluations at BASF's Southfield, Mich., site.

"These approvals mean that dealerships, as well as independent collision-repair shops that use BASF's R-M and Glasurit® systems, are using the same high-quality products that have been approved by some of the world's leading car companies," said Joe Skurka, manager, Original Equipment Manufacturer and Industry Relations for BASF's Automotive Refinish business in North America.
