LABOR TAKES THE WHEEL FOR MECHANICS IN DUNKLEY

Labor is driving a better deal for car owners and independent mechanics with a plan to make timely access to technical information a reality.

Whether you own a Toyota Corolla or a Ford Ranger, everyone should be able to choose where they get their car serviced, but . 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.

This will not only deliver savings to drivers - who will have better choice and easier access to repairs - but also create a level playing field for hundreds of independent workshops in Melbourne’s South-East.

Labor called for this change more than 12 months ago, but the Turnbull Government sat on its hands while independent mechanics have been going to the wall.

Labor understands it’s your car and it should be your choice where it gets repaired.
