  • the term of the express warranty, OR
  • the period of two years or 24,000 miles following the date of the motor vehicle`s original delivery to the consumer, whichever is earlier;
  • then the manufacturer, its agent, an authorized dealer or the issuer of the warranty must make the necessary repairs to conform the motor vehicle to the express warranty.
