Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Emission System

Maintenance Issues:

Generally speaking, how to use the law and your vehicle warranty to pay for the replacement/repair of your emission parts or other parts that lead to the failure of a mandatory emission test.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • 42 U.S.C.§ 7541 (Federal Law)

  • Your warranty documentation

Guide:

 

If your vehicle ever fails a state-conducted mandatory emission test, depending on how many years old your vehicle is, all the parts and labor needed to repair your vehicle for it to successfully pass another emission test may be free of charge to you.  How is this so? Well, this is because of two independent sources, 1) federal law and 2) your vehicle warranty.

As to the applicable federal law, new vehicle manufacturers are legally bound to warrant that the emission system, which includes all vehicle parts for the emission system to work, will properly work for at least five years or 50,000 miles, whichever happens first.

The vehicle warranty, while it is still under effect, regardless if the vehicle has already had more than one owner, will cover not only the material cost of the repair or replacement of any part in order to enable the proper operation of the emission system of your vehicle, but also any and all labor to have the repair or replacement be done by a professional mechanic.

So, it pays to know about your emission system warranty.  Consult your warranty documentation today to be better informed of the coverage of your emission system and the extent thereof, and if need be, consult your lawyer.  (Should you have lost your emission system warranty documentation, contact the customer relations division of your vehicle manufacturer.)
