Empathetic Arizona Consumer Attorneys who ALWAYS put Clients FIRST
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq. (“MMWA”) is a federal law (basically a federal Lemon Law) that applies to all consumer product written warranties (including Motor Vehicle, Boat, and RV/Motor Home warranties).
In some situations, the MMWA uses parts of State warranty law for limited written warranties and implied warranties. For a majority of States across the nation, your product warranty is breached under the MMWA if defect repairs are untimely, repetitive, or unreasonably numerous.
Unlike the Arizona Lemon Law, which has an 2 year/24,000 mile period of coverage (whichever comes first), the MMWA applies to the entire time your manufacturer's warranty is in effect, e.g., 3 year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty or 5 year/60,000 mile power train warranty, etc.
The main type of compensation for an MMWA limited warranty breach is diminution in value CASH money instead of an Arizona Lemon Law refund or replacement. Diminution in value means that your vehicle was not worth what you paid for it at the time of purchase (the sales price) because of its defects and repair history.
Basically, you should get some of your money back from the manufacturer because you did not get the "new" vehicle value you paid for, but instead got the equivalent of a "used" worn down vehicle that should have cost you substantially less.
Under certain circumstances it may also be possible to obtain compensation for your aggravation and inconvenience caused by repeat repairs and/or your loss of use of the product. These are called incidental and consequential damages. Although this type of compensation is typically disclaimed (excluded) in your manufacturer's warranty, the disclaimers can be overcome if failure of essential purpose (failure to complete proper repairs within a reasonable opportunity) is proven.
Additionally, you are entitled to seek attorneys' fees for MMWA claims and our Firm requests attorneys' fees only from Motor Home, Car, RV, Boat, and Off-road Vehicle manufacturers as part of out of court MMWA settlements.
As always, with our FAIR FEE GUARANTEE our attorneys' fees will NEVER exceed your out of court compensation.
Fortunately, just like for our Arizona Lemon Law cases, the vast majority of our clients' RV/Motor Home, and Offroad Vehicle MMWA cases (at least 95%) ARE SETTLED OUT OF COURT without any lawsuit being filed. Those are pretty good odds in your favor to be compensated without ever having to step foot in a courtroom.
