ARLINGTON, Va. (April 9, 2003) — DaimlerChrysler A.G. has joined the ranks of auto makers that have published their service and diagnostic information online.
The car maker's Web site — at www.techauthority.com — includes access to factory-authorized emissions and non-emissions diagnostic and repair information for vehicles in 1996 model years and newer. Some vehicles in the 1995 model year also are covered.
The Web site joins others, which are part of auto makers' promise to make the information available to independent repair shops by Aug. 31. The National Automotive Service Task Force in Arlington was created to monitor the auto makers' progress.
Other auto makers with Web sites already launched include BMW/Mini, DaimlerChrysler AG, Ford Motor Co. (including Land Rover and Jaguar divisions), General Motors Corp., Honda Motor Co., Hyundai Motor America, Isuzu, Saab, Toyota Motor Co., Volkswagen/Audi and Volvo.
