VEHICLE SAFETY INSPECTIONS
Vehicle safety inspections save lives and improve vehicle reliability. The average age of vehicles is 11.9 years and continues to rise – cars are lasting longer. This economical value is beneficial to the consumer only if the vehicle is operating at or near manufacturers recommended specifications. Inspections also promote jobs and produces a productive workforce throughout the entire supply chain of the aftermarket. Inspections also promote consumer awareness of proper vehicle maintenance.
RIGHT TO REPAIR
You and I both know that consumers are best served when they can take their vehicle anywhere they want for a repair. The variety and plethora of options ensures quality is high, prices are low, and turnaround times are quick. As vehicle systems become more and more complex, however, not all repair shops are able to access the vital information they need to diagnose and fix vehicles. We care about the technicians’ right to repair, and that’s why we’re continuing to advocate on behalf of technicians everywhere.
MAGNUSON MOSS WARRANTY ACT
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act ensures consumers their manufacturer’s warranties will not be voided regardless of where they get their vehicles serviced – whether at the dealership, an independent repair shop, or elsewhere. But many consumers are not aware of this legislation. We’re working to increase awareness of and adherence to legislation like this act, protecting consumers from the myth about manufacturer warranties.
