Magnuson Moss Warranty Act
FTC Will Keep Consumer Product Warranty Rules in Current Form with Some Modifications
THE MAGNUSON-MOSS WARRANTY ACT– AN OVERVIEW
In 1975 Congress adopted a piece of landmark legislation, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act was designed to prevent manufacturers from drafting grossly unfair consumer warranties and to make it economically viable for consumers to bring warranty suits by providing for the award of attorney’s fees. States built on the themes of the Magnuson-Moss Act by later passing their own lemon laws.
