AUTON warrants its products to be free of defects in material and workmanship for 3 years. All warranties are in effect beginning the date the product was invoiced by AUTON. All warranties are in effect for the original purchaser only. AUTON disclaims liability for any modifications, improper installation, or installations over the specified weight capacity. AUTON also disclaims liability for any modifications made to electrical mechanisms, improper installation, incorrect voltage connection and/or installations over the stated weight capacity. AUTON's sole warranty obligation to the owner of its products is to repair or replace (at AUTON's discretion) defective products at no charge to the original purchaser within the warranty period. The purchaser is responsible for returning the product to AUTON Manufacturing via prepaid shipping. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, AUTON disclaims any other warranties, express or implied, including warranties of fitness for a particular purpose and warranties of merchantability. AUTON will not be liable for any damages whatsoever arising out of the use or inability to use AUTON products, even if AUTON has been advised of the possibility of such damages. AUTON bears no responsibility for incidental or consequential damages. This includes, but is not limited to, any labor charges for the repair of AUTON products performed by someone other than an AUTON employee. Because some states and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply. AUTON will not be responsible for damage to AUTON products caused by misuse, abuse, failure to properly package the product for return to AUTON or for damage caused by carriers during shipment to or from AUTON. Any repairs to AUTON products required due to misuse, abuse or shipping damage or repairs of defective AUTON product outside the warranty period will be performed at the current rates established by AUTON for factory service. Warranty work performed on site, by an AUTON technician, will be billed at the current rates established by AUTON. Travel charges may also apply.
