Right-to-Repair Violations Lead to FTC Action Against Westinghouse Generator Maker
In July 2022, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that it was taking action against Harley-Davidson and Westinghouse outdoor generator maker MWE Investments for illegally restricting customers’ right to repair their purchased products.
FTC alleged that Harley Davidson and MWE’s warranties included verbiage that made the documents void if customers used independent dealers for parts or repairs.
The agency has ordered the companies to remove illegal terms and recognize the right to repair in their warranties, make corrective notices to their respective customers, and institute new policies to ensure that dealers compete fairly with independent third parties for parts and repair work.
