DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER PROTECTION UPDATES CONSUMER HANDBOOK FOR CONNECTICUT'S LEMON LAW PROGRAM

Thursday, September 28th 2017 - Today, the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) released an updated handbook to support consumers who may need to use Connecticut’s Lemon Law Program.

The Lemon Law Program can protect owners of defective new vehicles registered as passenger cars, combinations, or motorcycles. Since its creation, the program has returned more than $60 million dollars in refunds and replacement vehicles to Connecticut consumers.

“We always want to encourage consumers to protect themselves and make smart choices by doing their homework before large purchases and understanding what programs exist to support them,” said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, “We’re excited to share this updated information with consumers and for the progress we continue to make with this program.”

You can find the updated manual here. If you have any further questions regarding the program, more information can be found at www.ct.gov/DCP/lemon, by emailing DCP.LemonLaw@ct.gov or by calling (860) 713-6120.
