Link fights to protect car buyers

link usedcarSPRINGFIELD—Consumers soon could receive more warranty protection when buying a used car in Illinois thanks to legislation sponsored by State Senator Terry Link (D-Vernon Hills).

Under House Bill 4377, used automobile sales would include an implied warranty that would last for 15 days after the purchase or until 500 miles are driven, whichever comes first. The implied warranty would allow a buyer to give notice of a breach of warranty to the seller to allow for a remedy.

The legislation would not apply to cars with more than 150,000 miles at the time of sale.

“Consumers who buy used cars are doing it because it’s affordable,” Link said. “But if they buy a used car only to have to put even more money into it because of a faulty part, then the benefit of buying used has gone out the window. This is about protecting consumers from buying a faulty product.”

The legislation returns to the House for a final vote.
