AR Bill Would Repeal Crash Parts Consumer Notice Requirement

Arkansas Senate Bill (SB) 291, introduced by State Sen. Greg Standridge, R-16, would repeal the requirement for the use of aftermarket crash parts in repair of a vehicle that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty without the vehicle owner’s written consent.

Specifically, SB 291 would remove Arkansas Code § 4-90-306, which reads:

 

“Whenever repairs are made involving replacement crash parts, as defined in this subchapter, and the vehicle is still under the manufacturer’s original warranty, only original equipment manufacturer replacement crash parts may be used by the repair facility unless the owner gives or has given written consent otherwise.”

 

SB 291 passed the Arkansas Senate with a 21-9 vote and is currently before the state House of Representatives for further consideration. ASA encourages all interested parties to visit www.TakingTheHill.com and select “Alerts” to contact their state representatives in opposition to this bill.
