LABOR TAKES THE WHEEL FOR MECHANICS IN CORIO AND CORANGAMITE

Labor is driving a better deal for car owners and independent mechanics with a plan to give them access to the technical information they need to get cars fixed.

No matter what you kind of vehicle you own, everyone should be able to choose where they get their car serviced. But independent repairers are struggling to get fair access to the standard service information they need.

Under Labor, car manufacturers will have to share the same technical information with independent mechanics that they currently provide to authorised dealers.

Today Richard Marles, Andrew Leigh and Libby Coker visited Shaun at SR Automotive in Breakwater to discuss how this announcement will mean more choice and easier access to repairs for drivers, and a level playing field for independent mechanics to keep their workshops running.

Stuart Charity from the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association stated:

‘This is an absolute game-changer, both for our industry, but more importantly for the 17 million Australian car owners. What this policy will do is ensure that those 23,000 small businesses, independently owned small businesses, can continue to survive and compete on a level playing field with the multinational car companies and their dealerships. This is about giving them the access to tools and equipment they need to work on modern vehicles. What that will do is ensure that Australian car owners maintain their ability to choose who repair their cars and what parts are fitted on them’.

Labor understands it’s your car and it should be your choice where it gets repaired. It’s time Scott Morrison and his chaotic team stopped treating politics like a demolition derby.
