Notes of Decisions

“Remedy available under [former] ORS 646.315 to 646.375” refers only to remedy under [former] ORS 646.335 for failure to conform motor vehicle to express warranty, not to triple damages under [former] ORS 646.359 for manufacturer’s failure to es­tab­lish informal dispute settle­ment pro­ce­dure. Sweeney v. SMC Corpora­tion, 178 Or App 576, 37 P3d 244 (2002)

Notes of Decisions

Where purchaser fails to provide notice of condi­tion requiring repair, presump­tion does not arise that repair time exceeding 30 business days demonstrates inability of manufacturer to conform vehicle. Pavel v. Winnebago Industries, Inc., 127 Or App 16, 870 P2d 856 (1994)

Repair time exceeding 30 business days as evidence of inability to conform vehicle applies only to presently existing defect. Pavel v. Winnebago Industries, Inc., 127 Or App 16, 870 P2d 856 (1994)
