Breach of Warranty Attorney in Big Pine Key, Florida

Nothing frustrates consumers more than making repeated trips to get a product repaired for the same issue or issues. Whether it is a new vehicle or a used toaster, consumers have the right to expect the products that they buy to perform according to the standards established by the manufacturer. In Big Pine Key, Florida, some of the most common products that require frequent repairs include jet skis, fishing gear, and motorboats.

Both federal and Florida consumer protection statutes protect American consumers against a breach of warranty, which also goes by the name lemon law. Federal and Florida breach of warranty laws allow consumers to take legal action against the manufacturers of faulty products that do not live up to the promises listed in a warranty. If you purchase a product that requires repairs and it remains under warranty, you have the right to ask the manufacturer or the retailer that sold you the defective product to make the necessary repairs without you having to spend any money.

Manufacturers and/or licensed distributors that do not follow the terms of a warranty violate breach of warranty laws.

  • What Is a Breach of Warranty?

    Breach of warranty represents a legal principle that holds a retailer, distributor, and/or manufacturer legally accountable for failing to meet the quality and performance standards listed in a product warranty. Warranties typically run one year, particularly for high-ticket items such as appliances and motor vehicles. The two most common types of warranties, which are express and implied warranties, fall under the guidelines established by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).

    Creating an Express Warranty

    Consumers have several ways to create an express warranty. First, you can confirm the manufacturer’s promise that the product sold to you works as described in the owner’s operating manual. Second, an express warranty describes the products sold to a consumer, which allows the consumer to match the description of the product sold to using the actual product. Third, a manufacturer provides a consumer with a sample of a product and the consumer expects the same features and performance when buying the real product.

    Although an express warranty can be either oral or written, we recommend insisting on a written express warranty to have physical evidence of the promises made by the manufacturer. Consumers have a much more difficult time proving the existence of a verbal express warranty. The most common type of express warranty is part of a product’s instruction manual that comes with the product purchased by a consumer. Some manufacturers require customers to register their products on a company website before an express warranty goes into effect.

    Creating an Implied Warranty

    According to UCC guidelines, products and the packaging of products must meet certain minimum standards of quality. An implied warranty of merchantability takes effect when a manufacturer meets all of the product quality standards listed by the UCC.

    An implied warranty of fitness must include a buyer having to rely on the individual or the business selling a product to meet all the expectations that are associated with the performance of a product. For example, you communicate with a manufacturer that you want a riding lawnmower to meet certain performance standards. If the manufacturer does not meet the performance standards, the manufacturer has committed a breach of implied warranty. 

  • What Is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act?

    Also referred to as the Federal Lemon Law, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (MMWA) of 1975 represented a reaction at the time to the widespread exploitation of warranties by businesses operating in the United States. The MMWA enforces warranty statutes that permit a consumer to file a civil lawsuit against a manufacturer for failing to meet its legal obligations concerning the performance of one or more products. One important note for consumers concerning the MMWA is the federal law does not require manufacturers to create warranties. However, the MMWA requires manufacturers to follow the terms written into a warranty that they create. 

    The MMWA requires manufacturers to present the terms and conditions of a warranty using clear, easy-to-understand language. If a manufacturer has created a warranty that uses vague or confusing language, you should not sign the warranty under any circumstances. Warranties also cannot include what is called “tie-in-sales” stipulations which require consumers to purchase other products in addition to the product sold under a warranty. If you agree to a full warranty, the MMWA requires manufacturers to repair a defective product within a reasonable period. Manufacturers also must provide customers with a full refund or replace a faulty product for free if they cannot repair a defective product.

    Learn more about the MMWA by meeting with one of the Big Pine Key, FL breach of warranty lawyers at Morgan & Morgan.
