Vehicle Data

Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice.

The Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice™ campaign advocates for consumer access to and control of vehicle data. Historically, OBD-2 ports have granted vehicle owners and technicians access to vehicle data to assist with maintenance and repair. However, in the digital age of the modern car, vehicle data is now transmitted wirelessly and send directly only to vehicle manufacturers. This campaign represents the interests of all drivers, individual car owners and the independent aftermarket industry that serve them. We’re fighting to secure choice and put car data back where it belongs – in the hands of car owners. Your support is needed, learn how you can be an industry champion and pledge your support.

What Can You Do About It?

The Auto Care Association believes drivers should demand the right to transparency around the data collected from their vehicles, including what was collected, how it was used and with whom it was shared, among other rights. With vehicle data, drivers unwittingly generate new revenue streams for vehicle manufacturers every time they get behind the wheel. They have a right to control it.
