Right-to-Repair Policy
ORIGINAL INTENT
Auto manufacturers would be required to provide the
same diagnostic repair information to independent repair shops that
is currently accessed by dealers.

To force manufacturers to provide specific parts design
and software codes that would allow aftermarket retailers
to make and sell duplicate parts. Ultimately: Perform warranty
service in their stores.
