Berlin City Auto Group of Portland, Maine, has settled claims that implied warranty and remedy disclaimers made when selling new cars to Maine consumers were unfair and deceptive.
The Unfair Trade Practice Consent Decree approved by Kennebec Superior Court prohibits the Berlin City Auto Group from stating to consumers that only the manufacturer and not the dealer are responsible if the new car has a serious defect. Although Berlin City Auto Group did not admit any wrongdoing, the business agreed to inform past consumer purchasers of new cars that implied warranty and remedy disclaimers are retracted and that customers who were improperly turned down can seek reimbursement for repairs of serious defects. Berlin City Auto Group agreed to pay a $5,000 civil penalty as part of the settlement.
The Maine implied warranty law protects consumers for up to four years after the purchase of all household or personal goods, excluding used cars.
