RE: Disclaimer of Implied Warranties
Dear Sir/Madam:

It has come to the attention of this office that a disclaimer of the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose appears on several standard printed forms used by Kansas dealers.

As you may know, the Kansas Consumer Protection Act states that to exclude, modify or otherwise attempt to limit the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose is an unconscionable act and practice.

You should inform your members of this problem. If you or any of your dealers have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact this office.


Very Truly Yours,

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
ROBERT T. STEPHAN


Wayne Hundley
Deputy Attorney General
Consumer Protection and
Antitrust Division
