(a) A manufacturer, its agent, or authorized dealer may not refuse to diagnose or repair any vehicle for the purpose of avoiding liability under this subchapter.
(b)(1)(A) A manufacturer, its agent, or authorized dealer shall provide a consumer with a written repair order each time the consumer's vehicle is brought in for examination or repair.
(B) The written repair order shall include a reference to each defect, nonconformity, or other complaint brought to the attention of the manufacturer, its agent, or authorized dealer by the consumer, and each presentation of the vehicle by the consumer for a reasonable opportunity to repair shall be a repair attempt for those defects, nonconformities, or other complaints noted in the written repair order.
(C)(i) However, in the case of a motor vehicle that is a motor home where two (2) or more manufacturers contributed to the construction of the motor home, it shall not count as a repair attempt if the repair facility at which the consumer presented the vehicle is not authorized by the manufacturer to provide warranty service on that vehicle.
(ii) In addition, it shall count as only one (1) repair attempt for a motor vehicle that is a motor home if the same nonconformity is being addressed a second time due to the consumer's decision to continue traveling and to seek the repair of that same nonconformity at another repair facility, rather than wait for the repair to be completed at the initial repair facility.
(2) The repair order must indicate all work performed on the vehicle, including examination of the vehicle, parts, and labor.
