Does The Law Apply To All Defects?

The law applies to defects covered by the manufacturer`s express warranty that substantially impair the use, market value, or safety of the motor vehicle and are not the result of abuse, neglect, or unauthorized modification. Minor defects are not covered. At the hearing you will need to be prepared to explain to the Board how the defect substantially impairs the vehicle`s use, market value and/or safety.
