Legislation (SB 544) has been introduced in the West Virginia Senate that would eliminate the requirement for consumer written consent when using aftermarket parts in a vehicle that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty in West Virginia.

The legislation would modify West Virginia’s current law that states “motor vehicle body shops must use genuine crash parts for a period of three years, the year the motor vehicle was manufactured and the two succeeding years thereafter,” or the vehicle owner must consent to aftermarket parts if genuine crash parts are not used.

The Automotive Service Association, opposes SB 544 and asks West Virginia repairers to contact their state legislators in opposition to the bill.
