The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) has updated its list of service charges for access to the repair information Web sites of 26 different auto makers.
As per a September 2002 agreement with the Automotive Service Association, the auto makers agreed to set up Web sites for independent auto repairers to access repair and diagnostic information, and established the NASTF to oversee the process.
Each vehicle manufacturer has the right to set its own fees for Web site access, and those fees vary widely from free of charge for Hyundai Motor America to $5,200 a year for Volvo Cars of North America Inc.
The full list can be found on the NASTF Web site, www.nastf.org.
In order to help identify gaps in the availability of service information, the NASTF said it will accept feedback from service technicians.
