Everyone talks about warranties but very few people understand what they are. In fact, most attorneys and judges aren’t totally clear either - unless they handle these cases all the time. Which is what I explain in this week’s podcast.

Most confusion about warranties comes from the fact that auto manufacturers tout warranties in their advertising. And those warranties - “glovebox” warranties - are NOT typical warranties as defined by the Uniform Commercial Code.

So, I go over warranties - implied and express (not “expressed”!) - as well as the glovebox warranties. And how they all interact and whatnot. And I am posting this a bit early for which I apologize. I have a very good excuse though: I am going to the Tucker Automobile Club of America annual convention where I am the keynote speaker at a banquet. I might even wear a tie. Watch here for cool updates and pics.

This website may supply general information about the law but it is for informational purposes only. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
