RIGHT TO REPAIR Front and Center Issue in 2019

As technology advances and our products and vehicles are able to record and report vast amounts of detail - who owns and who has access to that information will continue to be battlefield. The ability for auto shops and for consumers to maintain access is imperative when making decisions about car repairs and costs and will likely remain at the front and center of this debate.
