Radio Show #376 – Mike Zabik and the “Right to Repair” Ballot Question

On election day, you will be faced with ballot question number 1, the so-called “Right To Repair.”

This initiative, as proposed, would require that motor vehicle owners and independent repair facilities be provided with expanded access to mechanical data related to maintenance and repair.

A “yes” vote would provide vehicle owners and mechanics access to wirelessly transmitted mechanical data.

A “no” vote would make no changes in the law governing this same access.

At Mike’s Auto Repair in West Springfield, owner, Mike Zabik represents many independent auto mechanics who believe very strongly in the passing of this initiative.

In this special program, Mike explains why this is important to you, your car, and your overall freedom of choice in the marketplace.

Radio Show #357 – Mike Zabik and the
“Right To Repair” Ballot Question

When you vote in November, you will see a ballot question on the “Right To Repair,”  also known as “Question 1.”

The original law, as passed, allows the independent auto repair business to have the same diagnostic information as the original auto dealer.

This legislative update includes coverage of new technology, “wireless and telematic,” so-called, to close loopholes associated with the law.

To put this in perspective for both the independent auto mechanic shop owners as well as the consumer’s choice to determine where they may go for service, Mike Zabik, of Mike’s Auto Service in West Springfield, discusses the impact this could have on his business, as well as what he believes the restrictions to the vehicle owner might be.
