Thank you for your inquiry. The DEG Database Inquiry Process is the mechanism for addressing specific issues on specific vehicles. This may include seeking additional clarifications on a database value, or to identify missing information that you feel is needed to write a complete and accurate estimate.
In the case of your inquiry, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS, www.scrs.com) has recently published the results of their blend study research at www.scrs.com/blendstudy, which you may find helpful in communicating your challenge to the IP blend formula. We are aware that SCRS is communicating directly with the Information Providers on their findings, and we are aware of the overwhelming industry concern.
At this time, we are going to recognize your inquiry as an attempt to reinforce the messaging already being communicated by the association, and we will share it with the IP as added perspective and reinforcement to the ongoing dialog. We will advise you of any progress that comes of those conversations, once they are communicated to the industry.
If you have other inquiries that address specific issues with estimating data that is missing or inaccurate on specific year, make and model vehicles, please feel free to submit a new inquiry.
