Can a seller 'in trade' opt out of their warranty by saying their warranty only applies if the car radio/dvd/gps unit is installed by 'a professional'? Is this reasonable/legal, for example, if the device was installed perfectly well by the buyer but had a failure after, say, 2 months? There are regs in the Fair Trading Act disallowing opting out but is this a legal opt out???
Setting the 'warranty' issue aside, what about the CGA? If the item failed in the above scenario, can we see the CGA not covering it?
As a comparison, in the case of someone making up their own computer, I have never seen such a warranty limitation and there certainly is scope for a non 'professional' to cock things up. If the faulty component was not clearly damaged by the installer, the reseller always honours the warranty in my experience.
Something for the bush lawyers to go at!!
(I did try to google an answer but it doesn't come up specifically enough to settle it).
