AAAA Executive Director Stuart Charity said after 15 months the full terms of the voluntary agreement signed by stakeholder organisations has been met by only one car company - GM Holden. "A handful of other manufacturers have made some repair and service data available via portals, while the rest have ignored the agreement entirely," he said.

"The Federal Government optimism for this voluntary process was badly misplaced. The failure of almost all vehicle manufacturers to meet the terms of this agreement is particularly disappointing given the same companies currently share this data with independent workshops in America, Canada and Europe.
"To ensure Australia's 13.1 million car owners also have an open and competitive market for vehicle service and repair, it is now clear the industry must operate under a mandatory data sharing system. The Federal Government must introduce a National Automotive Repair and Servicing Portal to maintain a competitive market for consumers," said Charity.

Charity said the extent and scope of this information from workshop operators revealed that data sharing is now an urgent consumer issue.
"By withholding information from independent repairers, vehicle manufacturers are manipulating the service and repair market. By restricting access to technical data, car makers will force the owners of newer cars into their dealerships," he said.

Charity said vehicle data sharing is critical for people living in regional Australia, where the nearest manufacturers' dealership for their vehicle may be hundreds of kilometres away. "Families and businesses should not endure the inconvenience, wasted time and fuel cost required to travel long distances just to service their cars," he said.

"To deliver Australians a competitive consumer market, car companies must provide - for a fair price - independent workshops access to the same service and repair data that their dealerships get," said Charity.
*Heads of Agreement - Access to Service and Repair Information for Motor Vehicles - This agreement was reached following an extensive review and recommendation by the Commonwealth Consumer Affairs Council in 2012. It was signed in December 2014 by the AAAA, the Australian Automobile Association (AAA), the Australian Motor Industry Federation (AMIF), the Australian Automotive Dealer Association (AADA) and the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI).
