Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice. is an Auto Care Association education initiative created to engage car owners, policymakers and other stakeholders on car data – what is it, why it matters and its implications for consumer choice.

 

We believe car owners should have the right to directly access and control their car data. We’re fighting to put car data back where it belongs – in the hands of car owners.

 

What is car data?

Your car produces data with vital repair and maintenance information. If you don’t control it, it could cost you.

Demand your data

Tell Congress your car data should belong to you, not the car manufacturer.

Join the movement

Be part of the fight to control your own car data.

Why You Should Care

Today, you can choose who services your car. Tomorrow, car manufacturers could choose for you.

If car manufacturers control who can see your data, you could end up paying more for maintenance and repairs. And no one should want that.
