New Mexico Legislators Urged to Eliminate Super Warranty from Clean Car Program

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has urged independent automotive repairers in New Mexico to contact their state legislators in response to the recent approval of the Clean Car Program in New Mexico.

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has urged independent automotive repairers in New Mexico to contact their state legislators in response to the recent approval of the Clean Car Program in New Mexico. The New Mexico Environmental Improvement Board voted Nov. 27 to approve the regulations that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars. However, the clean car standards proposed by the board also contain warranty provisions that ASA believes will have a long-term negative effect on New Mexico independent automotive repairers.

ASA believes that independent repairers will lose not only those vehicle repairs that are covered by the super warranty, but also the customer’s other repair items, possibly losing the customer permanently. ASA supports clean car programs, but believes they can exist and prosper in states without expanding or extending warranties at the expense of independent repair facilities.

ASA asks that all independent automotive repairers in New Mexico contact their state legislators and, at a minimum, ask them to urge the New Mexico Environmental Improvement Board to eliminate the super warranty provisions from the Clean Car Program. To send a letter, visit ASA’s legislative website, www.TakingTheHill.com. Click the “Current Alerts” link in the upper right corner of the page to find the letter that can be sent via e-mail to New Mexico legislators.

The Automotive Service Association is the largest not-for-profit trade association of its kind dedicated to and governed by independent automotive service and repair professionals. ASA serves an international membership base that includes numerous affiliate, state and chapter groups from both the mechanical and collision repair segments of the automotive service industry. ASA’s headquarters is in Bedford, TX.

ASA advances professionalism and excellence in the automotive repair industry through education, representation and member services. For additional information about ASA, including past news releases, go to http://www.ASAshop.org, or visit ASA’s legislative website at http://www.TakingTheHill.com.
