Right to repair should be a completely normal, legal thing to do. That fact that some how it is illegal is mind boggling.

In a way having "company certified repair technicians" using only "certified parts and training" sounds great. On paper at least.

In reality it means you have to bring the product to some shady looking strip mall store front halfway across the state and hope everything works out well. And the people you find working there look like they never even heard of the company the product is from. They just take your paperwork and product and tell you to leave.
Arguably laws should be passed to require a certain level of reparability in most products. The foam came off the office chair in my house exposing the metal. Not comfy. The maker didn't sell replacements, but a third party did. They arrived yesterday, and I haven't had a chance to install it yet. If that hadn't been available, and otherwise functioning chair bought just a couple of years ago would have been tossed out.

Legislator name checks out.
Any relation to Island Senator J. D. Reyer?

John Deer Shill. Ok, i get it now.

I'll do you one better, why does Wells Fargo still have ANY retail customers? That said, I suspect Deere does make quality equipment. I have no idea where the other manufacturers are on this, for all I know all farm equipment has the exact same issue. But the sooner we get right to repair laws in place everywhere the better.
