(a) A motor vehicle service contract must be in writing and contain all essential provisions regarding the administration of the contract.

(b) If a service contract is included in a motor vehicle sale, the seller shall, before delivery of the motor vehicle, give to the buyer a written statement with all pertinent blank spaces filled in that shall be signed by both the buyer and seller and that clearly and conspicuously

(1) explains the difference between a service contract and a warranty;

(2) discloses the maker of or obligor on the service contract;

(3) describes the relationship between the maker and the seller of the service contract;

(4) for a vehicle that is a used vehicle, notifies the buyer that the seller may not disclaim implied warranties if the seller is the maker or obligor of the service contract; and

(5) includes all other disclosures required by law.

(c) A motor vehicle dealer may not disclaim or limit implied warranties for a motor vehicle for which the motor vehicle dealer is a maker of a service contract sold for that motor vehicle. However, a motor vehicle dealer may disclaim or limit implied warranties as otherwise allowed by law, regardless of the make or model of the motor vehicle, if the motor vehicle dealer is merely the seller, not the maker, of the service contract and does not otherwise extend any written warranties on the motor vehicle that is purchased.

(d) In this section, “maker” means the person that makes, frames, and executes a service contract and assumes any obligation due to the buyer, but does not include a motor vehicle dealer who merely sells the service contract as the agent of a service contract company doing business in this state.
