The Witness - Wheels - - INDUSTRY - — Wit­ness Re­porter.

The Mo­tor In­dus­try Work­shop As­so­ci­a­tion (Miwa) said it wel­comed the Com­pe­ti­tion Com­mis­sion’s probe into, among oth­ers, ex­clu­sion­ary con­duct in the car re­pair in­dus­try.

Vishal Prem­lall, di­rec­tor of Miwa said Miwa, through its Right to Re­pair Cam­paign, has been cam­paign­ing to al­low con­sumers the right to se­lect where their ve­hi­cles are ser­viced, main­tained and re­paired, at com­pet­i­tive prices and in the work­shops of their choice.

He said con­sumers are locked into war­ranty con­tract that com­pells them to pay a much higher rate for re­pairs and parts for their ve­hi­cles un­der war­ranty when com­pared to the rates charged by in­de­pen­dent work­shops.
