    This bill is unnecessary and potentially very costly to independent small businesses who service and repair automobiles. There is a voluntary process already in place that disseminates service information from the OE vehicle manufacturer to the independent repair industry to the same degree that it is supplied to the franchised new car dealer market place.

    YES on HR 2057 End the lock-out on home repairs and independent shop repairs of motorcycles and cars. With computerized systems, scanners and UPDATED SOFTWARE are needed to properly diagnose and service todays cars. Dealers may not have the rockstar mechanic needed to make a good diagnosis or repair—give ME the choice and the tools to do my own work.—Parts, manuals, software, choice of mechanics outside the dealer network if necessary.

    Yes on HR 2057. The following article recently published in the LA Times – “Toyota found to keep tight lid on potential safety problems” ( http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-toyota-secrecy23-2009dec23,0,557792,full.story ) clearly indicates the need for the public to have access to their vehicle repair instructions,diagnoses and computer codes access. Poorly informed consumers only create room for car manufacturers and dealerships to lock in pricing to their advantage but even worst exclude people from ensuring their own safety!
