Product Description

Review

As U.S. and Canadian automakers and dealers face bankruptcy and/or unprecedented downsizing, Lemon-Aid guides steer the confused and anxious buyer through the economic meltdown unlike any other car and truck books on the market. Phil Edmonston, Canada’s automotive “Dr. Phil” for more than 35 years, pulls no punches. This compendium of everything that’s new in cars and trucks is packed with feedback from Canadian drivers, insider tips, internal service bulletins, and confidential memos to help the consumer select what’s safe, reliable, and fuel-frugal. Know all about profit margins, rebates, and safety defects. And when things go wrong, fight back! Lemon-Aid’s complaint tactics, sample letters, Internet gripe sites, and winning jurisprudence will get you attention — and a refund!

About the Author

Phil Edmonston, Canada’s toughest customer, is a former Member of Parliament and Consumers Union Board Member. Over almost 40 years, he has written more than 130 Lemon-Aid bestsellers. About three decades ago, Nissan and Honda sued Phil for $5 million — and lost. Currently, he lives in Panama.

Format: Paperback
In the past, all the new car books provided ratings for past model years so that you could compare the current models to the past models. Not so anymore. Additionally, this book is missing so many models as to be mostly useless for anyone shopping for a new car/suv/truck/van this year. I understand the automobile market is in a great deal of flux right now, and that Phil thinks many auto makers won't survive the next few years, but that's no excuse to not to discuss ANY of the Nissan SUVs (for example). If one were to use the Lemon-Aid system for ranking this (and other recent) Lemon-Aid guides, it would be one star, not recommended.

I generally like and trust the Lemon-aid series of books. 2010 New Cars and Trucks was however missing reviews on Nissan Pathfinder and Dodge Nitro, Toyota 4Runner & Sequoia, and almost all GMC SUV's. I'm shopping for an SUV and this book has been a waste of money for me.

Format: Paperback
Searching for a hatchback, and this book is missing Toyota Matrix, and its sister vehicle, Pontiac Vibe. I then started looking for other popular vehicles and noticed many models missing. I bought the 2004 version and it was great, but the 2010 seems to be missing a lot of content. The book is of limited value when it doesn't contain all of the cars you are looking for. The down-to-earth nature of the entries in this book are such that they really can't be compared to reviews from other sources, which are usually over the top positive.

I also note the web site seems to have been last updated in 2006. I wonder if Mr. Edmonston is putting the effort in that he used to.

Format: Paperback
If you care enough about wasting money to be looking for advice on buying a car, skip this "experts" opinions. If you are looking for a doorstop or a paperweight, buy it.
