Magnuson Moss Warranty Act

As a vehicle owner you should know about the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act

Preventive maintenance on today's vehicles is very important, especially on new vehicles. If you have a new vehicle still under factory warranty - there's great news! You can take all your vehicles to one location for service and your factory warranty will still remain in effect. How so? Simple - it's the law.

In 1975, the U.S. Congress passed the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act - a federal law that governs consumer product warranties, and is still in effect today. Among other things, Congress wanted to ensure that consumers could get complete and straightforward information about warranty terms and conditions.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act gives you these rights:

*Generally, your vehicle manufacturer's warranty cannot require you to return to your auto dealer for vehicle maintenance - or to only use the brand of replacement parts offered by that dealer.
*By law, your vehicle manufacturer's warranty will stay in effect when you have regularly scheduled maintenance performed at a qualified facility, like Kuhlys Import Specialist, that uses appropriate parts and procedures.

The bottom line is that your warranty on your new vehicle stays in effect when Kuhlys Import Specialist performs preventive maintenance.
