Consumer warranties: service contracts: cancellation: disclosures.


The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act provides consumer warranty protection to buyers of consumer goods, including motor vehicles, home appliances, and home electronic products. The act requires a service contract, as defined, to include certain elements, including a clear description and identification of the covered product. This bill would require a service contract that continues until canceled by the buyer or service contractor to, among other things, disclose to the buyer in a clear and conspicuous manner that the service contract shall continue until canceled by the buyer or service contractor and provide a toll-free number, email address, postal address, and, if one exists, internet website the buyer can use to cancel the service contract. The bill would also define the terms "clear and conspicuous" and "clearly and conspicuously" for purposes of the act.
