Title 4 - Business and Commercial Law
Subtitle 7 - Consumer Protection
Chapter 90 - Automobiles
Subchapter 4 - New Motor Vehicle Quality Assurance Act
§ 4-90-402. Legislative determinations and intent
The General Assembly recognizes that a motor vehicle is a major consumer acquisition and that a defective motor vehicle undoubtedly creates a hardship for the consumer. The General Assembly further recognizes that a duly franchised motor vehicle dealer is an authorized service agent of the manufacturer. It is the intent of the General Assembly that a good-faith motor vehicle warranty complaint by a consumer be resolved by the manufacturer within a specified period of time. It is further the intent of the General Assembly to provide the statutory procedures whereby a consumer may receive a replacement motor vehicle or a full refund for a motor vehicle which cannot be brought into conformity with the warranty during the motor vehicle quality assurance period provided for in this subchapter. However, nothing in this subchapter shall in any way limit the rights or remedies which are otherwise available to a consumer under any other law.
