...win-win for both consumers and automotive repair shops."


CAWA formed an advisory task force in 2019 to explore options to create a California Vehicle Safety Inspection Program. Led by CAWA, the task force includes the ASCCA, Auto Care Association, Coalition for Automotive Repair Equality (CARE), Automotive Service Association (ASA), Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), Motor Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (MEMA) and the Association for Sustainable Manufacturing (MERA) and other CAWA member automotive companies.


"I am pleased to introduce AB 471, which seeks to address consumer protection and transparency within the automotive repair industry while expanding our vehicle safety inspection program,” Low said. “While California has put many laws and regulations into place to provide oversight to the industry and provide greater consumer protection, AB 471 continues to improve upon these advances.


"I want to thank the Bureau of Automotive Repair and the Department of Consumer Affairs for their dedication to improving the automotive repair industry and protecting consumers from unsafe salvage vehicles”.


Low represents the 28th Assembly district in California and is the chair of the assembly Business and Professions Committee.
