Aftermarket groups promote federal ‘right to repair’ act
March 22, 2022 – Representatives of the aftermarket industry on Monday sought to build support for H.R. 6570, also known as the “Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair,” or REPAIR Act. But the sentiments they expressed did not always seem to be in alignment with the text of the bill.
During a 42-minute live webcast presented by Vehicle Service Pros, Bill Hanvey, president and CEO of the Auto Care Association (ACA), and Paul McCarthy, president and COO of the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), argued that the REPAIR Act is necessary to protect the ability of the aftermarket to maintain and repair vehicles.
