Auto Care Testifies Against Idaho Bill Targeting Non-OEM Parts


Recommended Posts

The Auto Care Association last week testified before the Idaho State Senate Commerce and Human Resources Committee in opposition to Senate Bill 1233, which would add language to an existing law that requires insurers to notify consumers in writing if they specific aftermarket parts for a collision repair.

Currently, Section 41-1328B of the Idaho Code states, “It shall be an unfair claim settlement practice for an insurer to specify the use of nonoriginal equipment manufacturer aftermarket crash parts in the repair of an insured person’s motor vehicle, or for a repair facility or installer to use non-OEM aftermarket crash parts to repair a vehicle, if the consumer has not been advised in writing.”

SB 1233 proposes to:

  • Add headlamps, fenders, hoods, tail lamps and bumper components to the definition of aftermarket crash parts
  • Add language to written disclosure statements telling consumers that non-OEM crash parts may affect safety and performance of a vehicle
  • Recommend that consumers consult with a qualified industry expert or repair shop before making any decisions regarding the use of non-OEM crash parts

Although SB 1233 was introduced in late January, it was swiftly advancing in the Idaho State Senate. Alongside Auto Care Association members, the association quickly took action to prevent the bill from becoming law, sending letters of opposition to the committee members highlighting its impact on aftermarket businesses in Idaho.

“In Idaho specifically, our industry provides over 12,492 jobs, generates $1.6 billion in economic activity and provides $679 million in wages,” said Tod Moore, manager, grassroots and advocacy, Auto Care Association. “SB 1233 would have immediate, detrimental effects on this otherwise vibrant aftermarket ecosystem, not to mention the negative effect it will have on consumers.”

During the hearing, the committee heard testimony from individuals both supporting and opposing the bill before ultimately voting to hold the bill in committee and thus preventing it from moving forward. Similar legislation also was recently defeated in Washington state.

Departing from Seattle, Washington, trip attendees experienced an all-inclusive VIP experience on the Royal Caribbean Ovation of the Seas cruise ship from June 14-21, traveling up the Alaskan coastline with stops in Sitka, Skagway, Juneau and Victoria, British Columbia Canada.
      During the months of September, October and November 2023, professional technicians and shop owners had the opportunity to earn entries on MyPlace4Parts with every qualifying invoice and a chance to be a grand-prize winner. Each winner and their guest joined Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper hosts as they got ready to depart on their exciting adventure, beginning with a welcome reception and dinner in Seattle. Once onboard, guests had a 7-night, 8-day adventure packed with activities and shore excursions, the

Entries were earned with every qualifying invoice worth $150 from an Auto Value or Bumper to Bumper parts supplier.  In addition, MyPlace4Parts users earned automatic bonus entries each day for every $150 increment made through MyPlace4Parts. Beyond the grand prize adventure cruise, there was also a total of $45,000 in gift cards given to 240 other lucky winners.
      “This trip has been nothing but amazing, exceeding all our expectations. We are extremely fortunate to be a small part of the Auto Value & Bumper to Bumper family with our parts supplier, Moog Louisville Warehouse,” said Steve Morton, of Morton’s Auto and Truck Repair in New Albany, IN. “We love the 32-year business relationship we have with Moog who are our main supplier for all our parts. We couldn’t do what we do daily without their support and thank them, Auto Value & Bumper to Bumper and their industry partners for this amazing trip!”
      Once on the Ovation of the Seas cruise ship, guests were treated to all-inclusive amenities and celebrated the first night on the ship with a group reception and private dinner seating. Each winner and their guest had a unique selection of port excursions, including whale-watching boat tours, ziplining, 4x4s and e-bikes adventures, helicopter rides, dog-sledding experiences, and much more. Each port offered an opportunity for shopping and dining before setting sail to the next destination.
      “This was a magical experience and one my wife and I would not have been able to take without the help of our parts supplier, everything from start to finish was amazing,” said Tony Spraggins of Spraggins Auto Repair in Longview, TX, and customer of ABC Auto Parts. “We are so thankful to everyone who helped make this trip possible, including the manufacturers who sponsored our Alaskan Adventure.”
      “The Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper promotional sweepstakes events showcase the power of business partnerships,” said Jim Holik, director of marketing for Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper. “The professional shop owners and guests who came on this promotion have a chance to experience once in a lifetime adventures, but also create and build friendships with each other. Our manufacturing channel partners who help with these customer experiences deserve a lot of appreciation and once again we thank them for their continued support.”
