Methamphetamine vehicle information disclosure. Requires a dealer or seller who knows or reasonably should know that methamphetamine has been manufactured in a motor vehicle within the previous two years to disclose this fact, in writing, to a buyer, prospective buyer, lessee, or prospective lessee of the motor vehicle before the sale. Permits a dealer or seller to include a decontamination report with the written disclosure. Provides that failure to disclose gives rise to a cause of action in which the buyer may seek: (1) remediation to a certain standard; or (2) reimbursement for remediation costs. Provides that, in addition, a court may award a buyer or prospective buyer liquidated damages of not more than $10,000, and that existing tort remedies that may be available to a buyer or lessee are not eliminated or abrogated.
