The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection issued a newly revised handbook on the state’s “lemon law” governing sales of defective vehicles, with DCP stating the law has resulted in consumers getting refunds or replacement cars valued at $60 million since the law’s enactment.

Under Connecticut’s lemon law, vehicle and motorcycle buyers can force dealers into arbitration if unable to get satisfactory repairs of problems that surface within two years or 24,000 miles of vehicle use that are not the fault of the owner. DCP lists the outcome of arbitration cases publicly online.
