House Bill 129 — Vehicles, warranty repairs

House Bill 129 — Vehicles, warranty repairs

Parrish Miller
February 14, 2023

Bill Description: House Bill 129 would further regulate the relationship between vehicle manufacturers and vehicle dealers. 

Rating: -1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?

House Bill 128 would amend Section 49-1626, Idaho Code, by adding a subsection that says, "A manufacturer may not unreasonably deny a written request submitted by a dealer for modification of a manufacturer's uniform time allowance for a specific warranty repair or a request submitted by a dealer for an additional time allowance for either diagnostic or repair work on a specific vehicle covered under warranty, provided the request includes any information and documentation reasonably required by the manufacturer to assess the merits of the dealer's request."

The business relationships and contracts between vehicle manufacturers and vehicle dealers should not be regulated and micromanaged by government.
