Mann+Hummel’s NA aftermarket brands support Right to Repair

MANN+HUMMEL says the initiative promotes improved service and affordability by allowing DIY and independent shop repairs.

Mann+Hummel’s North American vehicle aftermarket brands — Wix Filters, Purolator Filters, and Mann-Filter — announce support for Right to Repair, a campaign led by a coalition of aftermarket industry leaders that advocates legislation preserving the right of vehicle owners to maintain and fix their vehicles at the repair facility of their choice, including do-it-yourselfers.

Spearheaded by the Auto Care Association, the initiative is focused on the passage of H.R. 906, the “Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act.” According to Mann+Hummel, this bipartisan legislation provides the right for independent repair shops and aftermarket businesses to access critical information, tools, and equipment needed to maintain and repair vehicles at a fair and reasonable cost, ultimately ensuring the preservation of consumer choice and a fair marketplace.

To support this campaign, representatives from Mann+Hummel’s North American leadership recently met with the legislative staff for U.S. Rep. Jeff Jackson of North Carolina’s 14th Congressional District to encourage passage of the legislation, which currently has 49 sponsors.

“Consumer choice is the pounding heartbeat of the aftermarket industry, and competition in the marketplace drives improved service and affordability,” said Daryl Benton, vice president of sales and marketing, aftermarket North America for Mann+Hummel. “The Right to Repair maintains a level playing field for independent repair shops and do-it-yourselfers as vehicle systems become increasingly complex and the cost of regular service and maintenance escalates.”
