Auto Care Responds To Lawsuit In Massachusetts
After a lengthy campaign supported by the automotive aftermarket and the “Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice.” campaign, on election day, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly voiced their support at the ballot box for Ballot Question 1, an updated version of the Right to Repair act, which will preserve the right of vehicle owners to have access to and control of their vehicle’s mechanical data necessary for service and repair at the shops of their choice.
Following this news, the Auto Care Association today has reported that vehicle automakers, under the banner of the “Alliance for Automotive Innovation,” have filed suit to stop the bill from being put into motion, despite its passage by an overwhelming majority of Massachusetts voters.
