The end of the warranty period does not release a vendor from its liability for defects or faults in a product.
Even if there is no warranty or it has expired, the consumer is protected by the Consumer Protection Act. According to the act, a product has a defect for which the vendor is liable if, say, the product does not correspond to the information provided on it, or its service life is shorter than that which can be reasonably expected.
In other words, the company’s liability does not end with the expiry of the warranty period. No time limits are set by law for the vendor’s liability for defects. Instead, the period depends on the expected useful life of the product or defective part.
Vendors cannot use warranty contract terms to limit the liability imposed on them by the Consumer Protection Act.
