right to repair is completely different than being able to MacGyver stuff. What's happened is a number of a$$holes in companies are trying to prevent anyone but the oem's from maintaining equipment. It's the equivalent to the subscription model software companies have been pushing (looking at you SciTools - thieving #$#$%$%$%%). The oems are trying to lock in their customers to the oems very expensive maintenance plans.

Me? If it runs, I don't toss it. Multiple cars pushing 200k in the driveway.
