Miscellaneous Terms

If Dealer has financed the vehicle, the failure of Buyer to be current on all obligations under the Motor Vehicle Retail Installment Contract including payments and required insurance coverage, will invalidate this LIMITED WARRANTY. Upon termination of this limited warranty, Seller shall have no further liability for any implied warranty, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness, and Seller shall at no time have any liability for consequential damages of any sort or nature, but this limitation of liability shall not extend to those types of consequential damages the limitation of which is made unconscionable by statute. This LIMITED WARRANTY is extended solely and exclusively to the Buyer named above, and shall be terminated by Buyers sale or transfer of the described motor vehicle to any other person.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to either. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. This Limited Warranty shall constitute the sole and complete agreement regarding any warranty, expressed or implied, between Seller and Buyer. No oral representation of any nature has been made which differs from the foregoing terms and conditions, and no modification of the foregoing terms and conditions shall be valid unless it is written and signed by both parties.
