Voters Approve Availability of Motor Vehicle Repair Information Law

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

 

Massachusetts voters have approved Question 1, the Availability of Motor Vehicle Repair Information Law, that prohibits manufacturers from selling or leasing new motor vehicles without allowing the owner to have access to the same diagnostic and repair information made available to the manufacturer's dealers or in-state authorized repair facilities starting with the 2015 model year.


Under the law, electronic access to the diagnostic and repair information has to be provided to owners or designated independent repair facilities on a subscription basis and at fair market value. For vehicle from model years 2002 through 2014, manufacturers will be required to make the same information, as well as any diagnostic repair tools, available for purchase by vehicle owners or independent repair facilities.


The law goes into effect January 1 2013
