IMPLIED WARANTEES

Implied warranty of merchantability. This warrants the vehicle is fit for the ordinary purposes for which it was intended. It goes without saying that the vehicle complies with Division 12 (go to: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/lov/lovd12.htm) .

If an after sale repair is made on for a NON-Division 12 item we suggest:

A small nominal fee ($5) for the repair and a warranty release signed with copy to the buyer to prevent further repairs and avoid an implied extension of the warranty from the ‘goodwill’ repair.

See sample on page 88 – 91.

Implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose. This warrants the vehicle is fit for a particular purpose, for instance, towing a boat.
