What does Right to Repair do?
Right to Repair is simple. It requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with fair access to service information and affordable replacement parts. So you can fix the stuff you own quickly—and get back on with your life.
That sounds great! Who would be against that?
Well, manufacturers like John Deere and Apple don’t like the idea. When your tractor breaks or your cell phone stops working, they want to be the only people who can fix it. And they get to set whatever prices they want for parts and service.
Is Right to Repair a new concept?
Nope! We already have right to repair for cars—that’s why you can take your Ford into a local mechanic. They have all the same software diagnostics and service manuals that the dealerships have. This is the result of decades of auto Right to Repair legislation—laws that have been a resounding success.
I sit here thinking ‘But what can I do? I’m only one person.’
So here we sit, all of us thinking the same thought, and nothing gets done.
What if we all thought the exact opposite? ‘I am one person. I will do just one thing.’ Imagine how many things we could change in the world!
