GAVDA Opposes Vehicle Data Restrictions
In an open letter, ASA and members of GAVDA stated their disagreement with the OEM’s recent letter to limit the access to vehicle data. In a letter to the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee, the Alliance for Automotive Innovation had sought for Congress to intervene in state efforts to address vehicle data access.
ASA has encouraged an auto industry agreement on vehicle data access or a federal government solution. If Congress intervenes, it should include provisions that assure independent repairers have access to the vehicle data necessary to repair their customers’ vehicles.
