CAWA President and CEO Rodney Pierini, along with CAWA’s legislative team recently met with the director of the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) and his key executive staff to discuss two issues of importance to the association.
The first issue was telematics and its impact on the industry, as well as the motoring public. Of note, was the discussion of the vehicle owner owning the data in the vehicle. The second issue was the warranty rights (the Magnusson – Moss Warranty Act) of the public as it relates to what replacement parts are used and where their vehicles are serviced.
As a result of the meeting, Aaron Lowe of the Auto Care Association, CAWA’s national association partner, will make a presentation to the BAR Advisory Group in April regarding telematics and CAWA will pursue a partnership with the BAR to educate the public about their warranty rights.
