Order Reprints

October 18, 2019—AAPEX, which represents the $1 trillion global automotive aftermarket industry, is advocating for consumers to have access to and control of their car data during the 2019 event, Nov. 5 – Nov. 7, at the Sands Expo, Las Vegas.

The Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice.™ national consumer education campaign will be spotlighted to help service professionals ensure customers are aware of car data facts. Studies show that 71 percent of consumers assume they have direct access to their vehicle's data.

As part of AAPEX, Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice. will host a panel discussion on vehicle data, the connected car and protecting consumer choice.

The Technology of Tomorrow section, booth No. 31021, will demonstrate implementation of recently approved international standards, showing that direct, local access to vehicle data can be secure, safe and authorized by vehicle owners.

In addition, Parts Plus and Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice. will present Clay Millican, six-time Top Fuel World Champion. Millican will invite attendees to take photos with him and his dragster, and encourage them to sign the Change.org vehicle data access and control petition.

All attendees are asked to sign the petition at AAPEX or at yourcaryourdata.org.
