TRENTON, NJ — According to a report from the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ), New Jersey Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer) is bringing the Right to Repair Act to the local arena. Gusciora is sponsoring a statewide “Motor Vehicle Owner’s Right to Repair Act,” which would require all motor vehicle manufacturers to provide vehicle owners, repair facilities and the Division of Consumer Affairs in New Jersey with all information relating to servicing the vehicle.
Gusciora acted on the bill after a recent meeting with AASP/NJ.
“It’s a shame that vehicle owners are put in a position like this,” Assemblyman Gusciora said. “It should be the responsibility of the manufacturer to give this information to the consumer immediately so they can repair their car where and how they like.”
Bob Everett, president of AASP/NJ, the state’s largest association of collision and mechanical repairers, said the association is thrilled with the Assemblyman’s actions. Everett has been working for more than two years in support of the national Right-To-Repair bill.
