A Message from ABPA Executive Director Ed Salamy: Take Action TODAY to Protect the Automotive Aftermarket!

Ed Salamy, Executive Director, ABPA

Dear ABPA Members,

Our industry needs your help! Please consider telling your members of Congress to support bipartisan right to repair legislation.

Over the past 20 years, automakers have been increasingly using unfair and restrictive tactics that threaten our ability to offer collision repair parts to America’s drivers – unfairly edging companies like ours out of what used to be a competitive car repair market for consumers.

More than 2,000 people – including many ABPA members and their staff – have signed the CAR Coalition’s petition to Congress to preserve fairness in our industry and uphold consumers’ right to repair their cars the way they choose.

We need YOUR help to ensure Congress hears our call to protect the automotive aftermarket!

The ABPA is a founding member of the Consumer Access to Repair (CAR) Coalition and is proud to be supporting this important campaign for consumer choice.

Thank you for considering standing up in support of policies that will ensure a strong, vibrant aftermarket industry. It only takes 2 minutes to make your voice heard!
