AUTOLITE® MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTIES
For All Autolite® Products
Information Regarding Manufacturers' Warranties
Original equipment manufacturers' warranties remain in effect when Autolite® products are installed and maintained in accordance with the
service intervals recommended by the original equipment manufacturer. This warranty may be validated at FRAM Group or at any authorized distributor.
Consumers are sometimes told by an automobile dealer's service department or mechanic that a brand of replacement product cannot be used in the consumer's
vehicle during the warranty period. The claim is made that use of the brand will "void the warranty," with the statement or implication that only the
original equipment branded products may be used. This, of course, tends to cast doubt on the quality of the replacement product.
That claim is simply not true. Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and general principles of the Federal Trade Commission act, a manufacturer maynot require the use of any branded product (or any other article) unless the manufacturer provides the item free of charge under the terms of the warranty.
So if the consumer is told that only the original equipment product will not void the warranty, he should request that the OE product be supplied free of
charge. If he is charged for the product, the manufacturer or dealer will be violating the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act or other applicable law.
It should be noted that the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act applies only to consumer products, and not to businesses such as fleets or government agencies.
Consumer Warranty for Autolite® Products $15.00 and under (retail price)
For those Autolite® products that cost $15.00 or less and have a warranty on their packaging, FRAM Group warrants them against defects in
materials and/or workmanship during the period of time listed on the packaging from date of purchase (see * for products with warranty period not listed on
packaging). In the case of damage to a motor directly attributable to a failure of a properly installed Autolite® product that is the correct
application for the vehicle, FRAM Group will pay for the repair to a condition equivalent to that which existed before the failure. FRAM Group is not
responsible for any other damage or loss, and does not cover any type of losses or damages caused by incorrect installation, errors in application or
modification of the product or engine. See product packaging for more details.

What Warranty Does Not Cover:
CPG will not provide any warranty service if its products are not installed properly (including errors in application) and maintained in accordance
with service intervals recommended by the original equipment manufacturer.
CPG will not provide any warranty service if the product shows evidence that it has been tampered with, misused, abused or altered.
CPG MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, FOR ITS SPARK PLUGS, AND SPECIFICIALLY DISCLAIMS THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR
A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IF ITS PRODUCTS ARE USED FOR RACING, CUSTOM OR MODIFIED APPLICATIONS, INSTALLED IMPROPERLY, USED IN EQUIPMENT OTHER THAN THOSE
LISTED FOR THE PRODUCT, OR NOT SERVICED AT RECOMMENDED INTERVALS. Under no circumstances is CPG responsible for direct, incidental, special or
consequential damages resulting from such uses of its products.
CPG IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY USES OF ITS PRODUCTS. Some states do not allow the exclusion
or limitation of incidental, special or consequential damages, so the above exclusion or limitation may not apply to you.
Your Rights Under Implied Warranties and State Law:
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESSED WARRANTIES, OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES. CPG LIMITS THE DURATION OF ANY WARRANTY IMPLIED BY STATE
LAW, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE TO A PERIOD OF FIVE YEARS FROM THE DATE OF
PURCHASE. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you
specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
To make a claim under the warranty:
Call CPG at 1-800-890-2075. Dated proof of purchase is required to process your claim.
