Jake Auchincloss (D-MA) and Jared Golden (D-ME) in link hidden, please login to view to Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and NHTSA Administrator Sophie Shulman outlining concerns that NHTSA’s latest guidance may unfairly harm independent repairers. Citing differences in remote-data access, the lawmakers’ letter warns that NHTSA’s current guidance creates a “double standard” between automaker repair networks and independent repair businesses that may “entrench manufacturers’ dominance in the repair market in the long run … [and] harm competition.”
      Anticompetitive practices, like data-access restrictions and design-patent misuse, put independent repair shops at an unfair disadvantage and leave consumers footing higher repair bills.
      “Our constituents understand the importance of supporting small businesses and preserving their right to repair the vehicles they own,” Gluesenkamp Perez, Auchincloss and Golden said in a joint statement. “ … Without competition from independent repair shops, auto manufacturers have no incentive to price repair parts competitively.”

      Momentum USA Inc. is introducing a new brake-pad offering as an extension of AmeriPLATINUM, Max Duty. 
      The brake pads will be the most complete pads offered by AmeriBRAKES, providing three levels of protection for fleet, emergency-service and other severe-duty requirements, according to the company.
      ​The 100% copper-free brake pads feature A.R.M. – R.A.C. technology. A.R.M. refers to the mechanical-attachment method of securing the brake pad to the backing plate. Rust Abatement Coating (R.A.C.) helps prevent possible pad delamination and premature wear using zinc-coated galvanized technology.
      The A.R.M. – R.A.C. technology helps with NVH issues and helps to ensure a quiet brake system, according to Momentum USA.
      “By mitigating ‘rust-jacking,’ these pads will have the benefit of longer life,” the company said in a news release. “100% manufactured and distributed in North America, Max Duty pads deliver dependability, exceed expectations and provide peace of mind in the most severe conditions.”
      AmeriPLATINUM Plus Max Duty brake pads will be available for distribution and sale in the coming weeks.
