Nov. 12, 2021—A new survey from the CAR Coalition reveals there is strong support for action on federal right to repair legislation, like the bipartisan Save Money on Auto Repair Transportation (SMART) Act.

The survey also found 85 percent of voters support vehicle data being made available to consumers and any repair shop they choose and 92 percent believe consumers should be able to choose between OEM and aftermarket parts.

“Repair restrictions on automobiles are driving prices higher at a time when many Americans can least afford it,” Justin Rzepka, executive director of the CAR Coalition, said in a statement. “It’s time for Congress to get serious about solutions, including the SMART Act, to ensure consumers have options for quality, safe, affordable auto repairs and more control over their data.”
