Drive A Lemon in CT? Free help is here.
1-800 LEMON LAW is now offering free legal help to distressed drivers throughout Connecticut. We are pleased to announce the opening of our new Connecticut Lemon Law Office, managed by Angela Troccoli.
The Connecticut Lemon Law is one of the most effective lemon laws in the Nation for several reasons. First, it covers all vehicles, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, RVs, and commercial vehicles. The only exception is agricultural equipment. Secondly, the CT Lemon Law states that a problem must first occur in the first 18,000 miles or 24 months whichever comes first. This is similar to the coverage provided under the New Jersey Lemon Law, but much longer than the 12 months provided under the Delaware Lemon Law and the 12 months, 12,000 miles provided under the Pennsylvania Lemon Law.
The problem must occur four times to file a CT Lemon Law claim, but there is a special caveat which states that if there is a significant safety hazard, the consumer only needs to give the manufacturer two repair attempts to fix the problem. Connecticut Lemon Law also covers vehicles that are in the shop 30 or more days within the aforementioned 18,000 miles/24 month period, and those days do not have to be consecutive or all for the same problem.
Of course, if you have a problem which repeatedly occurs starting after the 18,000 miles/24 month period, but still while under original or extended manufacturers warranty, we can help you under the Federal Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, which we frequently discuss in this blog.
Using the same provisions we use in other State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Laws, we will be offering CT consumers completely free legal help. If they prevail, the manufacturer must pay all attorneys fees and legal costs. If for some reason, we do not prevail, there is still no cost. So, there is no cost and no risk to filing a claim.
If you feel you may have a CT lemon law claim, feel free to call us 1-800 LEMON LAW (1-800-536-6652) or fill out our Get Rid Of Your Lemon worksheet. We will be glad to review your situation and see how we can help.
