The Legislature finds that the purchase of a new motor vehicle is a major, high cost
consumer transaction and the inability to correct defects in these vehicles creates
a major hardship and an unacceptable economic burden on the consumer. It is the intent of this act to require the manufacturer of a new motor vehicle, or, in the case of a new motor vehicle that is an authorized emergency vehicle,
the manufacturer, co-manufacturer, or post-manufacturing modifier, to correct defects originally covered under warranty which are identified and reported within a specified period. It is the further intent of this act to provide procedures to expeditiously resolve
disputes between a consumer and a manufacturer, co-manufacturer, or post-manufacturing modifier when defects in a new motor vehicle are not corrected within a reasonable time, and
to provide to award specific remedies where the uncorrected defect substantially impairs
the use, value, or safety of the new motor vehicle.
