As far as I know, there isn’t a person I know that hasn’t bought a lemon. Even a new car can be a lemon. What was yours and will you ever forgive yourself, and forget it.

Remember the XU1 Torana, well I bought the the 4 cyl ‘vauxhaul’ engine version of that car. You know the one with the short stubby nose…..enough said.

I haven't had a lemon yet touchwood.

My first car was 16 years old so its a bit late to be called a lemon then.
My Vx needs a camber kit then it should be fine again (according to info on this site!), scrubbed the tires out in 6 months and I did not do a burnout once!

My friends have a Ford Focus and if one things not broken its another.
They haven't even paid it off yet and due to them stuffing up somewhere with the insurance or something (not sure exactly) there's nothing they can do about it.
One time I stayed at their house and their drive way is a huge steep hill (house is at the bottom) and I got parked in and they went to move it and it didn't start, it had to be towed away. I couldn't begin to imagine the money it has cost them. They said its more likely to be going to the tip as they will never be able to sell it!
But it works well in my favour for the Holden/Ford rivalry we have! lol

Current car I have was a lemon... but i've de-soured it...

Still is a lemon though i guess because if i was to sell it now i would be losing alot on it... so its just better for me to keep it and drive it will it dies.

I've had bad cars, but I don't think I would classify any of them as a lemon.

No lemons in almost 18 years.

I feel for those who end up with them though lol.

I don't think I could say I've had one either.....anything which has gone wrong with my cars is either from wear and tear (not much in this catagory) and from me abusing it.
