How does The Magnuson Moss Act effect warranty disputes?

The Act makes it easier for consumers to take an unresolved warranty problem to court. In addition, the Act encourages companies to use less formal, and therefore less costly, alternative to legal proceedings. Such alternatives, known as dispute resolution mechanisms, often can be used to settle warranty complaints before they reach litigation.
