SECTION 733
Warrantor liability for authorized aftermarket rustproofing; notification
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 35-A
§ 733. Warrantor liability for authorized aftermarket rustproofing;
notification. 1. It shall be unlawful for a warrantor to include in any
warranty agreement a clause that purports to limit a buyer's warranty
protection on the basis that the buyer has, or may have, a claim under
an existing warranty.

2. It shall be unlawful for a warrantor to fail to notify a buyer in
writing within ten business days of inspecting the buyer's motor vehicle
for rust damage whether the warranty claim will be allowed or denied. If
the claim is denied, the specific reasons for the denial shall be stated
in writing.

3. It shall be unlawful for a warrantor to fail to honor a buyer's
warranty claim on the basis that the aftermarket rustproofing was
applied improperly, if such service was provided by a person authorized
by the warrantor.

4. Nothing contained in this section shall be deemed to prevent a
warrantor from refusing to honor a warranty claim based upon the failure
of a buyer to comply with provisions of a warranty with respect to the
proper care and maintenance of the aftermarket rustproofing.
