1. Defects. The body sheet metal, structural members and frame of the motor vehicle are warranted not to rust through from the inside out during the warranty period specified.

2. Corrective action.

(a) The warrantor will, as a minimum remedy, make repairs or indemnify the buyer for the actual cost of repairing any rust damage covered by the warranty.

(b) The warrantor will honor all valid claims under the warranty regardless of their number.

(c) Nothing contained in this section shall be deemed to preclude a warrantor from entering into a contract requiring a financially solvent applicator to be initially responsible for the cost of any corrective action as a result of the negligence of the applicator of the aftermarket rustproofing.

3. Length of warranty. This warranty shall be valid for a period of not less than five years from the date of the application of the aftermarket rustproofing, provided, however, that this section shall not be construed as to extend this warranty to a person who is a subsequent transferee of the buyer.
