A: If a specific provision is included in a contract, such as an agreement by the dealer to fix or replace a certain item, that provision generally creates a contractual obligation. If one party does not uphold their end of the agreement, the other party may have grounds to claim breach of contract. In Nevada, as in most states, contracts are enforceable by law, and a breach can give the non-breaching party certain remedies. Whether the contract is voidable due to the dealer's failure to meet their obligations depends on the specific terms of the contract and the materiality of the breach. If the contract stipulates a timeframe for the repairs or replacement, and the dealer fails to meet that deadline, you might have a clearer case for breach. If the contract does not specify a timeframe, a "reasonable" period would typically be implied by law. However, "reasonable" can be subjective and may depend on the specific circumstances and nature of the required repairs or replacements.
