Description

As U.S. and Canadian automakers and dealers face bankruptcy and Toyota battles unprecedented quality-control problems, 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 40 years, pulls no punches. In this all-new guide he says: Chrysler’s days are numbered with the dubious help of Fiat. Electric cars and ethanol power are PR gimmicks. Diesel and natural gas are the future. Be wary of "zombie" vehicles: Jaguar, Land Rover, Saab, and Volvo. Mercedes-Benz – rich cars, poor quality. There’s only one Saturn you should buy. Toyota – enough apologies: "when you mess up, ’fess up."

Editorial Review

"Never one to beat around the bush (Nissan and Honda sued him once – and lost), in the current edition he goes out on a limb to assert that, for example Chrysler's days are numbered and that diesel and natural gas are the way of the future (and not eclectic and ethanol cars, which he dismisses as PR gimmicks.)"
