Will independent tire dealerships and auto repair facilities in Massachusetts have the ability to retrieve telematically transmitted diagnostic and repair data from vehicles? Voters in the state will decide on Nov. 3.
In the not-too-distant future — within two years, to be exact — nearly 90% of new cars sold in the United States will have the ability to transmit repair and diagnostic data to automotive repair facilities telematically.
In just two years, 87% of new cars in the U.S will be able to transmit diagnostic and repair data via telematics. The Auto Care Association’s Aaron Lowe discusses legislation aimed at making vehicle data accessible to independent tire dealers.
