Be fit for the usual use of a similar good and, where applicable:• Correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities that the seller has presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;• Present the qualities that a buyer can legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, the producer or his representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;2. Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and which the latter has accepted". Article L.217-9 of the Consumer Code: "In the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between the repair and replacement of the good. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a cost manifestly disproportionate to the other modality, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. He is then obliged to proceed, unless impossibility, according to the modality not chosen by the buyer". Article L.217-12 of the Consumer Code: "The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the good".
9.2 Guarantee against hidden defects
Article 1641 of the Civil Code: "The seller is bound by the guarantee for hidden defects of the thing sold which make it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given only a lower price, if he had known them".
