Sec. 14.

(a) An installment sale contract shall not be signed by a party to the contract unless it contains all of the information and statements required by this act.

(b) An installment sale contract shall not contain an acceleration clause under which any part or all of the time balance represented by payments, not yet matured, may be declared immediately payable because the seller or holder deems itself to be insecure.

(d) An installment sale contract shall not contain a provision by which the buyer waives a right of action against the seller, holder, or other person acting on behalf of the holder for an illegal act committed in the collection of the payments under the contract or in the repossession of the motor vehicle or collateral security.

(e) An installment sale contract shall not contain a provision by which the buyer executes a power of attorney appointing the seller, the holder, or the agent of the licensee as the buyer's agent in collection of the payments under the contract or in repossession of the motor vehicle sold or collateral security.

(f) An installment sale contract shall not contain a provision relieving the holder, or other assignee, from liability for legal remedies which the buyer has against the seller under the contract or under a separate instrument executed in connection with the contract.
