Article L217-8 of the Consumer Code « The buyer is entitled to demand that the goods conform to the contract. However, he cannot contest the conformity by invoking a defect that he knew or could not ignore when he contracted.

Article L217-9 Consumer Code « In the event of a lack of conformity, the buyer chooses between repair and replacement of the goods. However, the seller may not proceed according to the buyer's choice if this choice entails a manifestly disproportionate cost compared to the other modality, taking into account the value of the goods or the importance of the defect. He is then required to proceed, unless this is impossible, according to the method not chosen by the buyer. »

2 ° Or if this solution cannot be without major inconvenience for the latter taking into account the nature of the good and the use he seeks. The resolution of the sale cannot however be pronounced if the lack of conformity is minor. »

Article L.217-11 of the Consumer Code “The provisions of Articles L. 217-9 and L. 217-10 are applied at no cost to the buyer. These same provisions do not preclude the award of damages. »
