There is a new push for legislation to require the auto manufacturers to provide purchasers and independent mechanics with the ability to diagnose and thus repair cars. I support this and would think the majority of us would and should. The manufacturers counter argument (most likely legally correct) is that providing "non-dealers" access to the codes and info is giving out their intellectual property.

While I agree that this is true to a point (i.e., the code/software is their IP), there should be a balance reached where people should have the right to have their personal property repaired at a location of their choice.
