The Magnus-Moss Warranty Act ______________
GM 2001 HD Silverado / Sierra Power Launch Tour
1979 Pontiac Limited Special Edition Trans-Am
Below is the 'legal stuff' about the Warranty act, basically the part that concerns a buyer of aftermarket automotive products is that a dealer or manufacturer cannot void or charge for a warranty service based on use of aftermarket products unless a failure is a DIRECT result of use of the aftermarket product and they will have to prove how.
They also cannot tell you that you must use the factory filters etc. to keep your warranty, unless they are willing to give you those items FREE of charge.
Unfortunately many consumers and often many dealer personnel do not know
this, so I design my products whenever possible to be easily removable and very
easy to reinstall. If you ever have ANY problem with a dealer refusing to
cover a warranty item due to ANY aftermarket product, even if it is a
competitors product, feel free to write me and I will try to help.

sellers with copies of written warranties necessary for such sellers to comply
with the requirements set forth in paragraphs (c) and (d) of this section.
(2) Paragraph (a)(1) of this section shall not be

the warranted product, either:
(A) The full text of the written warranty; or

(i) ``Door-to-door sale'' means a sale of consumer
products in which the seller or his representative personally solicits the sale,
including those in response to or following an invitation by a buyer, and the
buyer's agreement to offer to purchase is made at a place other than the place
of business of the seller.
(ii) ``Prospective buyer'' means an individual
solicited by a door-to-door seller to buy a consumer product who indicates

consumer products with written warranties by means of door-to-door sales shall,
