A warrantee that's not in written form isn't worth the paper it's (not) written on.
Right now I think that in two days that we have heard more from Parkliner
than in the past year.
As far as Deryks warrantee issue, there is something that over rules a warrantee called merchantability. That means that, basically, a product has to do what it was intended to do in the first place. Design mistakes don't get exempted just because a product was resold. If it was wrong in the first place, it's still wrong and if that prevents the intended use, the mfg. has some liability. Small claims courts love these cases.....
And there is always the court of public opinion that will take on a company that won't fix it's mistakes.
