Universal Citation: AK Stat § 45.45.620 (2020)

If, after a reasonable attempt to repair, the nonconformity reported under AS 45.45.610 is not repaired, the manufacturer shall

(1) at the direction of a consumer who has not leased the assistive technology device or the mobility aid from a dealer, do one of the following:

(A) accept return of the assistive technology device or mobility aid and replace the assistive technology device or mobility aid with a comparable new assistive technology device or mobility aid and, within 30 days, refund any collateral costs;

(B) accept return of the assistive technology device or mobility aid and, within 30 days, refund to the consumer and to a holder of a perfected security interest in the consumer's assistive technology device or mobility aid, as their interest may appear, the full purchase price plus any finance charge, amount paid by the consumer at the point of sale, and collateral costs, less a reasonable allowance for use; a reasonable allowance for use may not exceed the amount obtained by multiplying the full purchase price of the assistive technology device or mobility aid by a fraction, the denominator of which is 1,825 and the numerator of which is the number of days that the assistive technology device or mobility aid was used before the consumer first reported the nonconformity to the dealer;

(2) with respect to a consumer who has leased the assistive technology device or mobility aid from a dealer, accept return of the assistive technology device or mobility aid, refund to the lessor and to a holder of a perfected security interest in the assistive technology device or mobility aid, as their interest may appear, the current value of the written lease, and refund to the consumer the amount that the consumer paid under the written lease plus any collateral costs, less a reasonable allowance for use; in this paragraph,

(A) the current value of the written lease equals the total amount for which that lease obligates the consumer during the period of the lease remaining after its early termination, plus the dealer's early termination costs and the value of the assistive technology device or mobility aid at the lease expiration date if the lease sets out that value, less the lessor's early termination savings;

(B) a reasonable allowance for use may not exceed the amount obtained by multiplying the total amount for which the written lease obligates the consumer by a fraction, the denominator of which is 1,825 and the numerator of which is the number of days that the consumer used the assistive technology device or mobility aid before first reporting the nonconformity to the manufacturer, lessor, or dealer.
