Format: Paperback
It's another Great Book from the editor Phil Edmonston, its hard to do a review in the Fall months before the new vehicles are out there, then I agree with the editor that people should hold off purchasing a new vehicle until well into the new Year, just like yesterday it was announced that the New GM Car the "Sonic" had no Brake Pads installed! Is this what got General motors into the Mess they were in before they had to be rescured? Ahh just like old times I expect and not good for the Consumer, the old adage should apply "Buyer beware"

I have been using this book for about 20 years! Love It. It has been right on down knowing when your car will squeak.

HASH(0x9dd1e498) out of 5 stars Good content, crappy presentation Sept. 4 2012
By NauticalNeilP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lemon Aid has a good reputation for no-nonsense information about cars and trucks in Canada, and this issue is no different. Unfortunately, the presentation (the lack of a good index is the biggest issue) detracts from the content and makes this e-book difficult to navigate. In addition, the text references "better recommendations" for vehicles that don't even appear in the book (e.g. Toyota Matrix). C'mon Phil, get your act together and stop giving us a half-baked guide.

HASH(0x9dd1e6e4) out of 5 stars Accurate as usual Dec 14 2012
By hospital cop 612 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been a Lemon Aid fan since 1984 when I had the misfortune of buying a new Plymouth Horizon from the dealership. It was a lemon from the moment I drove it off the lot. In frustration, I went to the library and checked out the Lemon Aid book. The author told me every single thing that was wrong with my new car. The book was 100% dead on. I became a fan instantly. All these years later I am still a fan. With every subsequent vehicle purchase, Lemon Aid has warned me about potential problems with my vehicle. It may not be 100% right now, but it is over 90% for sure. Only a fool would not at least skim the book for an unbiased take on a vehicle that had their interest. Excellent information on how to force the dealer to fix defects for free and the book gives a fair and honest price for each car listed. Please read this book before going car shopping!

Written by a Canadian who knows the auto industry very well. Informative and unbiased reviews of car makes and models. This book can save you a lot of grief.

HASH(0x9dd1e9fc) out of 5 stars Too pratical June 29 2012
By R. B. Lonning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is great if you do not care which car you want or anything else personal about the car. I also think it is geared towards a Canadian audience and a lot of the issues may not apply to Americans. If you are out to get the best deal and do not care what car you end up with this book is for you.
