The Fix is In

Just about everything under the hood of your car depends on the onboard computer to work. But the Alexandria, Virginia-based Coalition for Auto Repair Equality -- an outfit looking out for the aftermarket car part business -- claims car makers are working that to their advantage -- and costing you in the process. The group says car makers keep diagnostic codes, technical infor, and even tools from independent mechanics. So you wind up having to drive to the more expensive auto dealerships to get your ride fixed. (Boston Globe -- Editorial)
