“A failure by Congress to enact the Right to Repair Act will threaten the economic well being of convenient, oil change facilities throughout the country,” said Steve Christie, executive director of AOCA. “Important repair information is being denied or not released in a timely manner to our members, including simple filter applications and fluid capacities that are fundamental to their survival. In order for them to be able to serve their customers, they must have access to the safety alerts and repair information necessary to provide basic maintenance services, and safety checks on today’s modern vehicles.”

Because vehicles are becoming increasingly sophisticated with virtually every system either monitored or controlled by computers, servicing these vehicle systems to keep them safe and efficiently operating requires ready access to complete and accurate information from the car companies. The Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act (HR 2694) was introduced in Congress to ensure that car owners and their trusted repair shops have the same access to safety alerts and repair information as the franchised new car dealer network.

"Passage of the Right to Repair Act will ensure that the automotive repair industry, including quick lubes, remains competitive so that car owners can conveniently and affordably have their vehicles serviced at the repair shop of their choice,” continued Christie. “Our members view it as critical to their long-term survival and are very excited about the growing Congressional support.”
