Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Dear Mr Allegre, thank you for choosing Just Answer, I would like to assist you with your legal question today.
Unfortunately, absent a written warrant, issues such as cosmetic damage, air conditioning, or other "comforts" are not covered by the implied warranty of merchantability. Only necessary mechanical systems such as your headlights, brakes, engine, heater (for defroster purposes) would be covered.
If you had a warranty or other guarantee (express guarantee) regarding this A/C system, you would have a valid contract claim against the dealership (either written or oral), but there is no implied warranty for this type of system.
We have an extended warrenty from Power and this was said to be a grey area item. It depends upon .. who knows what. Sounds like we're out $140.
That might be the case - if there is a gray area, perhaps you can negotiate a difference with them. Contract interpretation is often disputed and a negotiated result is very common.
Am at work, so just checking. I think we're done. THANK YOU!
You are very welcome. I do wish you the best, XXXXX XXXXX hope that this works out for you. Best regards, Bill.
