RECALL NOTICE

If you have a JESLA with the older NEMA 14-50 that Tesla recalled recently, please take it to a local Tesla service center for a free replacement.

If there is not a nearby Tesla service center, call the nearest one and explain that you do not own a Tesla car and need this replaced per the recall. Explain that obviously Tesla will never automatically replace it (because you don't own a Tesla car) and that Toyota does not offer the UMC. It was purchased from Tesla, as all UMC's are sold there.

You might suggest that anybody's house can burn down just as well with this faulty Tesla product regardless of the brand of the car that is plugged into it.


If that fails, send an email to:

sales@QuickChargePower.com

and we will issue an RMA number to exchange your recalled 14-50 at our cost.

The whole "Approved Charger" thing is nonsense. Period.

How do RAV4 EV owners feel about using a "non-approved" charger. Is the Toyota document complete bunk, or do owners not give a hoot and will do what they want knowing they are taking a bit of a chance?

Thanks


There are actually federal laws prevent manufacturers from refusing warranty claims just because you modified your car or used aftermarket parts.

Look up Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson–Moss_Warranty_Act

The Magnuson-Moss act was enacted by Congress in response to the widespread misuse by merchants of express warranties and disclaimers. The legislative history indicates that the purpose of the Act is to make warranties on consumer products more readily understood and enforceable and to provide the Federal Trade Commission with means to better protect consumers.

The statute is remedial in nature and is intended to protect consumers from deceptive warranty practices. Consumer products are not required to have warranties, but if one is given, it must comply with the Magnuson-Moss Act.

I would not sign this even though it won't hold up. Even if you do they can't prove what you were using to void your warranty. This is like saying you have to fuel at a certain gas station if you buy an ICE form them . You are protected by the:

All nonsense.
