     3.  The Motor Vehicle Service and Repair Act - The Motor  Vehicle Service and Repair Act is designed to protect against incomplete, defective, or improper repairs to motor vehicles.  It further expands and makes repair facilities accountable for certain actions and protections for consumers.  The is act applies to all vehicles that are presented for service.

     4.  The Michigan Consumer Protection Act - The Michigan Consumer Protection Act applies against all vehicles and protects consumers from unfair or deceptive methods, acts, or practices.  Common examples of its applications would be cases involving odometer fraud, rebuilt wrecks, flood vehicles, and similar deceptive practices.

     5.  Uniform Commercial Code - The U.C.C. provisions for Breach of Warranty provide recovery were manufacturers have failed to provide the remedies defined in the warranty provided.  This typically involves recovery of the diminished value or sometimes the cost of repair and can include incidental and consequential damages.
