WVC 46 B- 2 - 3 §46B-2-3. Express warranties.

(a) Express warranties by the dealer are created as follows:

(1) Any affirmation of fact or promise made by the dealer to the consumer which relates to the consumer goods is part of the basis of the bargain and creates an express warranty that the consumer goods will conform to the affirmation or promise;

(2) Any description of the consumer goods is part of the basis of the bargain and creates an express warranty that the consumer goods will conform to the description;

(3) Any sample or model exhibited to the consumer by the dealer is part of the basis of the bargain and creates an express warranty that the consumer goods actually delivered to the consumer will conform to the sample or model.

(b) It is not necessary to the creation of an express warranty that the dealer use formal words, such as "warrant" or "guarantee", or that the dealer have a specific intention to make a warranty, but an affirmation merely of the value of the consumer goods or a statement purporting to be merely the dealer's opinion or commendation of the consumer goods does not create a warranty.
