The Next Step on Right to Repair

The aftermarket won the first right to repair battle, but it appears they've yet to win the war.
In providing an update to the independent aftermarket distributors on hand at Monday's opening general session of the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) Aftermarket Distribution Summit in Vancouver, Commercial Vehicle Right to Repair Coalition President Marc Karon says last year's agreed to Repair Memorandum of Understanding has drastically helped level the playing field for the independent service channel against OE dealers. But Karon says there are still a fair number of kinks that need to be worked out.
