A Change of Thought?

Most people now understand that it doesn’t matter what we drive, we all have the right to choose who repairs our ride. Whilst for some makes and models the right to repair will be a hard-fought battle at the highest levels, for many vehicles, it’s simply a case of reminding people to “think out of the box”.

Sum of Parts

When the first vehicles rolled off the assembly line, they were made top to bottom by the manufacturer, the same brand all the way through. But as original equipment manufacturers continue to specialise, corporations diversify and the world grows ever smaller, today’s machines are delivered with a brand on the front that rarely matches that on the engine, transmission, driveshaft and other parts. Which, when it comes time to rebuild or repair, can send you hunting across the world.
