           An act relating to consumer protection; regulating new

    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1988, section 325F.665, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 13.  [DEALER LIABILITY.] Nothing in this section 
imposes liability on a dealer or creates an additional cause of 
action by a consumer against a dealer, except for written 
express warranties made by the dealer apart from the 
manufacturer's warranties.  The manufacturer shall not charge 
back or require reimbursement by the dealer for any costs, 
including, but not limited to, any refunds or vehicle 
replacements, incurred by the manufacturer arising out of this 
section, unless there is evidence that the related repairs had 
not been carried out by the dealer in a timely manner or in a 
manner substantially consistent with the manufacturer's 
published instructions.
