ABSTRACT
A quasi-experimental design is used to investigate whether the Magnuson-Moss Act succeeded in its efforts to transform a products warranty into an accurate signal of a product's reliability, and to improve the overall level of warranty protection. The paradox of how an information remedy could create an accurate signal without changing how consumers process information is addressed.
