Right2Choose returns as ‘Your Car, Your Choice’

Published:  26 June, 2017

‘Your Car, Your Choice’ is the new rallying cry for the sector, as the Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) relaunches Right2Choose for today’s world.

The campaign ‘Your Car, Your Choice’ aims to refocus the industry’s attention on the importance of choice with regards to vehicle maintenance and repair work and reflect the changes brought by increased connectivity.

It will support rights granted via Block Exemption that give motorists the freedom to decide where to service, maintain and repair their vehicle. Thanks to the legislation, consumers can use any repair workshop for non-warranty work during the warranty period.

Wendy Williamson, IAAF chief executive, said: “Many motorists are unaware of this legislation and it’s our duty as an industry to inform the general public and give them the opportunity to choose the best option for their own requirements.”

Wendy adds: “We will now work alongside the aftermarket to tackle misconceptions within the industry and beyond. This message is incredibly important, not just for motorists but for the future of the independent aftermarket and we encourage the sector to get behind the campaign and spread the word.”

Right2Choose was originally launched in 2011, and followed the Right to Repair Campaign, which ran between 2007 and 2010.
