2014 Product Warranty
FTC Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is the Federal law that governs consumer product warranties. Passed by Congress in 1975, the Act requires manufacturers and sellers of consumer products to provide consumers with detailed information about warranty coverage. In addition, it affects both the rights of consumers and the obligations of warrantors under written warranties. Congress wanted to ensure that consumers could get complete information about warranty terms and conditions. By providing consumers with a way of learning what warranty coverage is offered on a product before they buy, the Act gives consumers a way to know what to expect if something goes wrong, and thus helps to increase customer satisfaction.
Life Time Warranties Deceive: The minimum duration for a Life Time warranty in California is three (3) years. California is the only State to set a minimum period for the term "Life Time".
