• The invoice shall further contain a statement to the effect that complaints regarding the functional adequacy of the repair work performed may be directed to the department, but in no event later than 90 days or 3,000 miles of the repair, whichever comes first.
• The provisions of this subdivision shall not be construed to limit or abridge any statutory or other right or remedy of a consumer at law or in equity.

The bill, if passed into law, will take effect January 2012.
