March 21, 2022 – Today’s vehicles are the most technologically advanced ever built – and getting more so every model year. It takes information, tooling, and access to the vehicle systems to ensure we can best serve our customers. But concerns over cybersecurity and other issues are causing the OEMs to once again limit our access to the resources we need.
Earlier this year, U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.), a senior member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, introduced the Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act (H.R. 6570). This legislation would preserve consumer access to high quality, affordable vehicle repair by ensuring that vehicle owners and independent repair shops have equal access to repair and maintenance tools and data as car companies and licensed dealerships.
