W. Smith Jr. on Friday MRS. S. A. SHOCK i .former Roxanne Evans How to Bun All Guarantees Must Be Exact !-·; By Sidney Margolius ·Consumer Expert for Sunday Gazette-Mail'! '. WASHINGTON-This summer marks Ithe beginning of improvement in one of the nnost persistent consumer problems--un- ilear and even evasive warranties or guarantees on cars, appliances and many ·olher goods. The new warranty recently enacted by Congress basically requires ^manufacturers to clearly label their war- ·ranties either as a "full warranty" or a '"limited warranty." ~ -There are other provisions too. But most significantly, if a manufacturer says he is giving a full warranty, he now must undertake to provide a new product or part within a reasonable period and at no charge, or a refund, and not use such notorious loopholes as providing just parts and charging a stiff fee for "labor." " .But while the law applies to products manufactured after July 4,1975, don't expect immediate assurance of truthful, iplear warranties on all or even most products. You still have to keep up your guard, £Rd be careful what the warranties really :-say. For one reason, most products you might buy for the next few months will have been made before July 4. For another, the Federal Trade Commission, which administers the new law, has not completed all its regulations. * * * OF THE CAR manufacturers, only American Motors so far has announced that it will label its warranties as "full." While the other manufacturers may change later, as of now they are calling their warranties "limited." This really means that they are not ready at this time to commit themselves to promising a replacement car or a refund if the purchased car is defective and can't be fixed satisfactorily. ' In buying household appliances, you will especially need to observe, before you buy, what the warranty promises. In general, the trend of manufacturers of large appliances is to provide a full warranty. But on small appliances, there is more variation in the type of warranty, Bruce Benson of the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers reports. For some time most of the larger manufacturers of small appliances have provided replacement warranties. If your new iron or toaster doesn't work, you bring or send it in and they give you a new one. In effect, this is much like a full warranty. BUT THERE'S one sticky point that the FTC now will have to resolve in its forthcoming regulations implementing the new law. Buyers who don't live near an authorized repair or replacement center operated by the manufacturer have had to pay for shipping the product to the manufacturer for replacement. That costs another dollar or two on small appliances, and on large items much more. The question now 71 If · becomes, under the new law who will pay 1VI. Zoo this expense? Miss Denise E. Brumfield, daughter of Mrs. Sarah E. Brumfield of St. Albans, and E. W. (Corky) Smith Jr., son of. Mr. and Mrs. E. W.

There still remain many loopholes, especially on used cars and other second-hand merchandise which may have no warranties at all, or only verbal promises which often don't stand up in court. --Because of the variation in warranties especially on small appliances, ask to see the warranty before you buy. Up to now you may never even have seen the warranty until you opened the box. But under the new law sellers have to let you read the warranty before you buy. As well as observing whether replacement is promised, note what the warranty says about who is responsible for cost of shipping the product to the replacement center or factory. Under the new law the warranty also will have to state whether there is any exclusion or limitation on "consequential damage"; meaning, damage resulting from use of a defective product under warranty. Suppose a new refrigerator breaks down and your food spoils. So also obsarre what the warranty says about this pint. Moore Is Terry Lee Home on Saturday The marriage of Miss Mary Wendell.
