This month’s cover story, Consumers, Connected Cars, and the Fight for Control, explores the topic of connected cars and the controversy surrounding it. Also known as the Right to Repair Act, we dive deeper into the issue of whether wireless vehicle data should be transparent and shared with the consumer.

This issue is packed with informative articles and features, including one on how COVID-19 has forced repair shops to adjust their internal processes. Plus, don’t miss our special feature on page 18 which shows why investing in an EV charger for your shop could be a smart move for this year.
