Automotive YouTuber Rich Rebuilds Promotes the CAR Coalition

“Rich Rebuilds”, a prominent YouTube channel that focuses on automotive repair and general vehicle information, has come out with a new video on Monday where he comes out in support of the CAR Coalition and urges his 1.34 million subscribers to learn more about both the SMART Act and the REPAIR Act. Rich Benoit is a native of Massachusetts who is widely known for repairing his Tesla’s battery (rather than spending thousands at the dealer) and for collecting and repairing other vehicles.
