Harley-Davidson Warranty Lawsuit

A proposed class action alleges Harley-Davidson Motor Company Group, LLC, unlawfully conditions the continued validity of the warranty on the use of only an authorized repair service and/or authorized replacement parts. The lawsuit claims defendant, through its warranty statements on certain products, conditions warranty coverage on usage of defendant’s repair services for maintenance and repairs, rather than allowing consumers to do repairs themselves or via third-party repair services. This restriction violates state and federal laws, the plaintiff contends.

The proposed class representative seeks to certify a class consisting of all purchasers of Harley-Davidson products in the United States with warranty provisions that prohibit self repair and/or use of unauthorized parts, excluding people who made the purchases for resale purposes.  She also seeks to represent a similar subclass consisting of New York purchasers.

The class action lawsuit asserts claims including breach of warranty, unjust enrichment, and fraud, and seeks remedies including damages.

The case is Rita Weaver v. Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Group, LLC, case number 1:22-cv-01142-GTS-TWD, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York.
