Acceptance by the shop of the amount offered by the customer shall not be an admission that the amount offered is the true and correct amount owing and payable.
If a shop refuses return of a customer's replaced parts in violation of section 325F.62, subdivision 1 despite a timely request, the shop shall be liable for the reasonable value of the parts.
The remedies of this section are to be construed as cumulative in addition to those provided by the common law and other statutes of this state.
