Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(625 ILCS 5/5-104.2)
Nonconforming vehicles; sale.
(a) Every manufacturer shall be prohibited from reselling any motor
vehicle that has been finally ordered, determined, or adjudicated as having
a nonconformity under the New Vehicle Buyer Protection Act or a similar law
of any state, territory, or country, and that the manufacturer repurchased
or replaced because of the nonconformity, unless the manufacturer has
corrected the nonconformity and issues a disclosure statement prior to
resale stating that the vehicle was repurchased or replaced under the New
Vehicle Buyer Protection Act or similar law of any other state, territory,
or country; identifying the nonconformity; and warranting that the
nonconformity has been corrected. The disclosure statement must accompany
the vehicle through the first retail purchase.
(b) "Nonconformity" refers to a new vehicle's failure to conform to all
express warranties applicable to the vehicle, which failure substantially
impairs the use, market value, or safety of the vehicle.
(c) The disclosure statement referred to in subsection (a) shall be in
substantially the same form as below:
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN): (Insert VIN Number);
Year: (Insert Year); Make (Insert Make); Model: (Insert Model). This vehicle was previously sold as new. It was subsequently ordered as having a nonconformity by final decision of court proceeding or State run arbitration. It was subsequently repurchased by its manufacturer because it did not conform to the manufacturer's express warranty and the nonconformity was not cured within a reasonable time as provided by Illinois law. The following nonconformities have been corrected (a minimum of 5 numbered lines shall be provided to describe the nonconformity or nonconformities)."
The customer shall sign the disclosure statement. This disclosure language
shall be in at least 8-point type.
