  2. If a manufacturer or dealer fails to furnish the express warranty required by this section, the wheelchair shall be covered by a warranty the same as if an express warranty had been provided by the manufacturer or dealer pursuant to this section.

    1. In the event that the selling dealer from whom the consumer purchased the wheelchair goes out of business or ceases to be an authorized dealer or service center for the manufacturer, or if the dealer or consumer moves or relocates to a location that makes it unreasonable for the consumer to seek warranty service from the selling dealer, or if the consumer is dissatisfied with the selling dealer, the consumer shall be responsible for contacting the manufacturer or another authorized dealer which will be responsible for facilitating the warranty service required with an authorized dealer, to be mutually agreed upon by the consumer and the manufacturer, which entity shall be referred to as the alternative warranty service provider.
    2. In the event that an alternative warranty service provider is designated pursuant to paragraph (a) of this subsection (5), the consumer may only seek warranty service from such alternative warranty service provider.
    3. To the extent reasonable and possible, the manufacturer shall take into account the independent mobility resources of the consumer when determining the alternative warranty service provider pursuant to the provisions of this subsection (5).
