Connecticut Lemon Law Information

The Connecticut Lemon Law applies when, during the first two years or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first), following delivery of a new vehicle:

  • the dealer has attempted to repair the same problem four (4) or more times. However, your car may also be eligible if you have less than four repair attempts for the same problem and can justify this is a reasonable number of repair attempts, and repairs have been performed within the eligibility period, or
  • the problem is a safety defect which is likely to cause death or serious injury if the vehicle is driven, and the defect continues to exist after two or more attempts during the first year, or
  • the vehicle has been out of service for repair at the dealership for a cumulative total of 30 days or more, for any number of unrelated problems.

To qualify for the Lemon Law, the defects must not have been caused by the consumer's abuse, neglect or unauthorized modification of the vehicle.

Helpful Lemon Law Tips

Most states require you to notify the dealer and the manufacturer that you have a Lemon Law claim. Always use Certified Mail with Return Receipt.

If the manufacturer has an informal mediation or dispute resolution process, most states require you to do that first before pursuing litigation. However, you should contact a lawyer immediately.

Most lawyers will not charge you for an initial consultation or legal fees for Lemon Law arbitration. If they decide you have a case, normally the manufacturer is forced to pay your legal costs.
