About Us

“Make Car Repair Your Choice” is advocating for right to repair policy, like the SMART Act, that limits unfair repair restrictions and puts consumers first.

Make Car Repair Your Choice” is a project of the CAR Coalition, a group of independent automotive parts and repair companies, associations and insurers dedicated to preserving and protecting consumer choice, transparency, and affordability in the post collision repair market.

The Consumer Access to Repair (“CAR”) Coalition has become a leading advocate for protecting consumer choices and access to vehicle data, fighting automakers’ attempts to monopolize the post-collision repair market and hoard vehicle data. The CAR Coalition has conducted extensive outreach to a bipartisan group of policymakers and is supporting federal legislation designed to protect consumer choice in the post-collision repair market.

Members include: Allstate, American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA), Automotive Body Parts Association (ABPA), Automotive Manufacturers Equipment Compliance Agency, Inc. (AMECA), AutoZone, Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), Diamond Standard, Geotab, and LKQ Corporation.

The CAR Coalition is a growing group of independent automotive parts, management and repair companies, associations, and insurers committed to preserving consumer choice and affordable vehicle repair, by ensuring competition in the automotive collision parts industry.
