Vehicle Repair

Service centers in Wisconsin are regulated for the purpose of minimizing consumer abuse in car repairs. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection has an extensive set of regulations that apply to motor vehicle repair, and the law includes requirements for written estimates, rights to inspect and keep parts, estimated completion dates, prohibiting unauthorized work, and written repair orders documenting the work performed and the cost.

Violations of your rights under the motor vehicle repair regulations can be remedied in the courts. There are substantial remedies including recovery of twice the monetary loss due to the violation, no liability for unauthorized or illegal repair work, and the recovery of the costs of litigation, including attorney’s fees.
