Auto Warranty Reviews Advises Shoppers On New Bill Impacting Warranty Dealers

Representatives of leading online car warranty reviews and ratings portal analyzes provisions designed to enhance the Golden State’s franchise laws - particularly regarding “inappropriate treatment of dealers by manufacturers.”

New York, United States - June 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

AutoWarrantyReviews.com – Auto warranty reviews authority (AWR) when it comes to automotive warranty companies and trusted source for those seeking a quality car warranty, is making shoppers aware of a new California bill that would impact vehicle warranty reimbursements for dealers, among other factors. The California legislature began reviewing a new franchise bill in April, potentially impacting dealer and factory competition, spinoffs and affiliates/warranty reimbursements.

The bill, according to AutoWarrantyReviews.com representatives, incorporates a series of provisions designed to enhance California’s franchise laws – particularly regarding what the Assembly Transportation Committee calls “inappropriate treatment of dealers by manufacturers.” Further, there are specially-contained provisions that could be viewed as responses to actions in recent years by Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, Hyundai/Genesis and Volvo and its Lynk & CO affiliate.

Research and analysis by Auto Warranty Reviews.com personnel discovered that this bill prepares a process for determining warranty work based on retail rates for labor and parts, and also defines how the factory can respond to a request for retail rates – including a timeline and notification guidelines. Additionally, representatives of the online warranty reviews and ratings portal found that it establishes protections for dealers pursuing this newly-established retail reimbursement-on-warranty process from “adverse actions and penalties from the automaker,” some of which include assessing surcharges, limiting vehicle or parts allocations and conducting audits.

AutoWarrantyReviews.com makes sure shoppers for extended car warranty plans are never taken advantage of by offering ratings and reviews based on a series of factors including annual renewal rates, availability, best prices, roadside assistance, repair deductibles and promotions, all of which are designed to help shoppers obtain important information about auto warranty companies prior to making a final decision.

May 25, 2019

TOKYO — A smartphone app developed by Japanese police is being widely downloaded by women trying to protect themselves from gropers on packed rush-hour trains.

Since then, the app has reportedly been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times — unusual for a government-developed mobile application. Women in crowded trains and other public places in Japan often face sexual harassment, but are typically too afraid to call out for help. With the app, victims...

Companies bracing for China's retaliation in tariffs dispute

May 25, 2019

BEIJING — Companies were bracing Monday for how Beijing might retaliate against President Donald Trump's escalation of a fight over technology and trade that threatens to disrupt a Chinese economic recovery.
