Demand Access to and Control of Your Vehicle’s Data! Sign the Petition!

If you own a modern vehicle, chances are it’s trying to tell you something.

Trouble is, you’re not allowed to listen–at least not right now.

Today’s vehicles gather a lot of data, including important maintenance and repair information. By 2020, 90 percent of new vehicles will include wireless technology that transmits real-time information about the vehicle’s condition and its owner’s driving behavior.

This information can help people make decisions about how to repair and maintain their vehicles, but we currently do not have access to it.

This data is wirelessly transmitted to the automakers, which gives them full control over how to use it. Without direct access to this data, you could face higher costs and have fewer options when it comes to vehicle repairs. Your ability to choose more affordable options may be restricted, and so might your ability to work on your own car.

So what can you do?

You could sign a petition at Change.org or start your own petition.

Join the movement and demand more access to and control of your vehicle data. Learn more at https://yourcaryourdata.org/.

  1. Need to do the same with ag equipment.

  2. I followed your suggestions and attempted to sign the petition. But during the process at change.org, before I could sign it, I got an ad from change.org wanting me to support a climate change type of petition. So I left without signing anything. I am as opposed to this type of manipulation as I am to the feds manipulating me to accept something I don’t want.
