CARE Web site promotes Right To Repair Act
The Coalition for Auto Repair Equality (CARE), recently updated its Web site, www.careauto.org. One highlight is in-depth information on key automotive aftermarket issues, including the Right to Repair Act.
The Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act (H.R. 2735, and its Senate companion, S. 2138)guarantees the ability of vehicle owners to choose how and by whom to have their vehicles repaired -- and whose parts they wish to use.
The proposed bill is now before Congress. It has nearly 100 co-sponsors in the House sub-committee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection.
The revised Web site features statistics on cost comparisons of aftermarket parts and labor vs. those of the automotive manufacturers. It also displays polls and surveys from consumers supporting the Right to Repair Act.
In addition, the Web site sports the following:
* an overview of legislation and current listing of legislative co-sponsors.
* links for users to e-mail Congress.
* a sample letter to Congress.
* legislative updates on aftermarket issues by state.
* a search engine to identify elected officials by zip code.
* U.S. automotive driving facts and more.
CARE represents companies in the automotive aftermarket -- an estimated $200 billion a year industry.
