EU antitrust boss studying car repairs market

European Union regulators are studying how the car repairs market works following demands from customers for more competition, but they have not opened a case, the bloc’s antitrust chief said on Monday.

The study will look at carmakers including Renault, Jaguar Land Rover, Peugeot and software vendor Accenture, European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager told reporters.

She said interest was triggered by car owners who want more competition and the opportunity to be able to use other repairers or garages than those certified for their cars.
