Service Contracts Vs. Warranties

California Service Contract Attorney

When making a major purchase, such as a car, a motor home, or a computer, consumers are often offered a service contract as protection for their purchase. These are typically presented as being the same as a warranty. However, a service contract is not a warranty, as it does not have the power of a warranty as protected by the California Lemon Law and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and may not require the manufacturer to fix or replace the product. However, even if you purchased a service contract, you still have rights.

For a free consultation about your rights and differences between service contracts and warranties, contact the Law Office of Michael S. Humphries at 562-375-0545.

A warranty is a binding document. By definition under the California Lemon Law, it is an actual guarantee that a defective product will be fixed or replaced under the terms of the warranty. On the other hand, a service contract has no such power. In fact, it may be administered by an out of state insurance company that is impossible to contact. In the end, the insurance company may want to simply pay you the cost of the contract, rather than pay for the more costly repair or replacement that you truly need.
