Consumer Law

Does the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act Cover All Products?

By Amy Loftsgordon, Attorney
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act covers written warranties on consumer goods.

No. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (the federal law that governs consumer product warranties) covers only written warranties on consumer goods. “Consumer goods” are products normally used for personal, family, or household purposes, including items attached to or installed on real property.

The Act does not cover warranties on items sold for resale or for commercial purposes. The law also does not apply to services—unless the warranty covers the parts needed for a repair and the workmanship (services) in making that repair.
