LABOR TAKES THE WHEEL FOR MECHANICS IN NOWRA

Labor has taken the wheel for car owners and independent mechanics with a roadmap to make timely access to technical information a reality.

No matter what vehicle you drive, 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.

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 independent mechanics who will be able to stay in business as a result.

Labor called for this change more than a year ago. Unlike Labor, Scott Morrison and his divided team won’t back independent mechanics on the South Coast over large foreign multinationals.

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

It’s time the chaotic Coalition stopped putting themselves first and started fighting for small businesses on the South Coast instead.
