EV giant is the latest company hit with "Right to Repair" suit
Tesla is the latest major manufacturer to be hit with "Right to Repair" lawsuits, the company said earlier this week while confirming reports.
Tesla has been sued in a pair of proposed antitrust class actions "accusing the company of unlawfully curbing competition for maintenance and replacement parts for its electric vehicles, forcing owners to pay more and wait longer for repair services," an official statement to Reuters said.
The lawsuits, filed on Tuesday and Wednesday in federal court in San Francisco, allege that Tesla designed its electric vehicles, warranties and repair policies to discourage owners and lessees from using independent shops outside of Tesla's control.
Tesla joins Harley-Davidson and John Deere in similar situations regarding the ongoing Right to Repair debate.
