Oregon “Crash” Bill Fails To Advance

July 8, 2021

An Oregon bill that would have changed the terms “accident” and “collision” to “crash” has died with the adjournment of the Oregon legislative session on June 26.  The bill, which had passed a legislative committee, included provisions that requires crash repairers to inform consumers, in writing, if non-OEM parts were used and the effect of use of such parts on warranties.

The bill defined an “aftermarket crash part” as a motor vehicle replacement part, sheet metal or plastic, that constitutes the visible exterior of the vehicle, including an inner or outer panel, is generally repaired or replaced as the result of a crash and is not supplied by the original equipment manufacturer.
