Default Did you lease your boat and/or Honda engine(s)? if so Honda says you have no warranty!

Snip: American Honda spokesman Jeff Smith says the company stands by its warranty program but declined to comment further on Ryan's case because it's pending.

Says Smith: "If a consumer has a leased vehicle warranty issue and wishes to pursue legal action, he or she should pursue remedies allowed under applicable state laws and not under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which, as the highest court in New York state has found, applies to products that are purchased and does not apply to leases."

Snip: But the appellate court unanimously revived the case, rejecting Honda's argument that Magnuson-Moss doesn't apply to lessees.

"We doubt that a dealer who takes title to a new vehicle would pay for that title unless it received the manufacturer's written warranty for the benefit of all the dealer's customers, whether buyer or lessee," Judge Barbara Wecker wrote for the panel. "The warranty is undoubtedly a condition of the transaction that is a basis of the bargain, and the warranty is issued in connection with the manufacturer's original sale of the car to the lessor."
