A: The warranty that CANNOT be waived is the warranty that the "car will be fit for the purpose it was intended." If you bought the car "AS IS," did you ask any questions? Did you ask to have the car overnight to have a mechanic look at it? You also mentioned your question as a hypothetical, "if I bought the car AS IS and my contract states: "if a written warranty is given, then implied and express warranties cannot be waived." Is that what it states? Please email me the contract: and I will let you know what recourse you have.
