Johannesburg - The right to choose where you wish to repair your vehicle, full disclosure of all costs associated with your car... a code of conduct for the local car industry could give SA motorists more choice.

Following a probe into the local auto industry by the Competition Commission, the Right to Repair SA (R2RSA) campaign says progress is being made towards an ethical guide for automakers and dealers. 

Earlier in 2017, the Competition Commission published a draft version of a Code of Conduct for the South African automotive industry. 


Here's what the code of conduct proposes: 

1 Make it possible for small, independent service providers to undertake service and maintenance work whilst a vehicle is in-warranty. 
2 Make it possible for more historically disadvantaged individuals to own OEM dealerships
3 Offer owners more choice for spare parts
4 Remove OEM restrictions in the sale and distribution of parts
5 Introduce more price and product options
6 Cater for consumer education & awareness of costs entailed in the purchase of a motor vehicle.
