DONOFRIO, Judge.

This is on motion for rehearing in the above entitled case (former opinion 2 Ariz.App. 80, 406 P.2d 430). We filed our opinion on October 11, 1965, and Otis Elevator, in its motion for rehearing, took exception to our decision, as well as our reasoning. We fell that our opinion might lead the casual reader to the belief that Otis Elevator's liability is based upon a breach of warranty on the sale of the elevator, and a breach of warranty upon the maintenance contract. the cross-complaint of the cross-plaintiff, First National Bank of Arizona, stated in part as follows:

'5. By reason of the foregoing, cross-plaintiffs are entitled to indemnity from Otis Elevator Company for all damages and expenses incurred in connection with claim of plaintiff.'

When, on the second day of the trial, appellee Maurer moved to dismiss her action as to Otis, the trial court granted this motion after counsel for First National and Otis had stipulated that this dismissal would have no effect on the cross-claim of First National against Otis. First National's cross-claim against Otis was submitted for decision to the trial court without jury, and the court entered its judgment as follows:

'IT IS ORDERED, adjudged and decreed that defendant First National Bank of Arizona and First Bank Building Corpoation have and recover judgment over against defendant Otis Elevator, Inc., in an amount equal to the judgment of plaintiff against the defendant, First National Bank of Arizona and First Bank Building Corporation, heretofore recovered in this action; plus plaintiffs' taxable costs and defendant, First National Bank of Arizona and First Bank Building Corporation's taxable costs; including the jury fees assessed against said defendants, but denying recovery for attorneys' fees.'
