Should you have the right to repair your car? Automakers don't think so

This might get ugly.

Ask a tech company whether you should have the right to repair the gadgets you've paid bags of money for and they'll answer with a simple "no". Nowadays, if you buy a product and it breaks, you may not be legally authorized to repair it yourself and must either send it in for repairs or purchase a replacement. This is where the concept that people have the right to alter or repair their own electronic gadgets enters the picture. While this isn't a new notion, several manufacturers, including Apple, have aggressively opposed it in the past. 

And, of course, it doesn't end with smartphones; automobiles are also becoming increasingly difficult to repair. In fact, to make matters worse, some car manufacturers don't want you to get behind the hood at all. If you're curious to learn more about the topic of the right to repair and how it may affect your automobile, make sure you watch this video by the YouTube channel Donut Media and enjoy.
