CAR manufacturers block mechanics from repairing your car.

NO CODE NO CAN FIX!
Will a new code mean less choice for Australian car owners?
There are concerns that time may be up for the independent car mechanic, with news that the automotive industry has blocked moves to allow them access to data and tools to repair modern cars.
Earlier this year the federal government sanctioned negotiations to establish a voluntary code of conduct between independent repairers and car companies that would allow access to vehicle service and repair data.
Now the group that represents car makers and importers, the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), has pulled out of the negotiations and announced that it will develop its own voluntary code of conduct for car servicing.
