Guarantees / Warranties

There are a variety of different guarantees or warranties that will go into effect when purchasing products or services. Warranties are promises made by manufacturers that the products or services they are providing meet certain standards of suitability and work as intended, and that if they fail to meet such standards, they will be repaired or replaced. Certain situations, like the purchase of a vehicle, might elicit special protections such as lemon laws, which hold manufacturers responsible for the sale of faulty vehicles.
