Expertise in the diesel market from one supplier

With its Diesel Repair Service, VDO has recognized the importance of the growing market share of diesel engines.

Frankfurt/Germany, September 14, 2010. CO2 limits, gasoline price explosion, cost pressures – the market share of diesel engines has undergone an inexorable rise - and not just since fuel consumption became the all-important factor in the automotive sector. With their immense torque and minimal consumption, diesel engines have taken the market by storm and are reaching market shares of almost 100% in some countries and segments. Since this trend has been ongoing for some time now, the demand for testing and repair work on common rail engines in motor vehicle garages has grown as the age of the fleet increases. For this reason, Continental has worked consistently over recent years to build up an extensive network of European diesel repair professionals in the form of its VDO Diesel Repair Service (DRS).

Over 100 company-certified service operations provide competent, efficient and cost-effective servicing with qualified staff and OEM quality spare parts. For a current overview of the Europe-wide network, visit us in Hall 2.0 at the Automechanika trade fair in Frankfurt (14-19 September) or consult our websites - the German service operations are listed under and the international partner network can be found under

DRS specializes in the maintenance and servicing of diesel engines, making it a reliable partner for both independent and branded garages and a sign of quality for workshop customers.

With regular training of DRS staff by the automotive supplier Continental, availability of genuine spare and repair parts as well as certified testing processes and test equipment, DRS can guarantee high quality levels for the replacement or repair of common rail systems.
