#AskNCM: How Long Should It Take to Recondition a Vehicle?

    Thanks for the good tips. We write the date taken to service on the driver’s window with a Posca marker. This allows any manager to walk through the shop to see the timeline for recon. It also reinforces timeliness with the service writer and technician.
