Dundurn | November 30, 2013 | Trade Paperback

Lemon-Aid New and Used Cars and Trucks 1990-2015 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.

Lemon-Aid New and Used Cars and Trucks 1990-2015 steers you through the purchase of new and used vehicles unlike any other car-and-truck book on the market.

Phil Edmonston, Canada''s automotive "Dr. Phil," pulls no punches. He says there''s never been a better time to buy a new or used  car or truck, thanks to a stronger Canadian dollar, a worldwide recession driving prices downward, and the industry offering reduced prices, more cash rebates, low financing rates, bargain leases, and free auto maintenance programs.

Lemon-Aid New and Used Cars and Trucks 1990-2015 gives you all the information you need to decide whether to buy, sell, or hold on to your vehicle. It provides listings by manufacturer, model, and year for small, medium, large, and sports utility vehicles. It also identifies:

  • Which cars and trucks are "wallet friendly"
  • Which will easily last 15 years
  • Which offer the best features for senior drivers; and
  • How you can save $2,000 by cutting fees and administrative charges.

"Dr. Phil" has been twisting the tailpipe of the car industry for 42 years. Can you really afford to buy a new or used vehicle without consulting Lemon-Aid?

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Combined new & used 15 year guide lacking information I have been using The Lemon-Aid Used Cars and Trucks Guides for many years and have found the yearly guide invaluable. The yearly guides have been unavailable the last few years and in their place I guess this single catch all guide. “The New and Used Cars and Trucks 1990-2015” I am unsure how this single guide covering 1990-2015 can provide useful information on New or used vehicles, it was published in 2013? I am disappointed with this guide as its lacking in information and I would rather the separate used yearly guide containing much more in-depth model information. I was researching the Hyundai Santa Fe and although a top selling vehicle in this condensed guide it was not listed in the main directory but at the back of the guide a small bit was found but not what the in depth information I’m used to and the small bit was of little use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phil Edmunston New and Used Cars and Trucks I have been buying this book every year for years and have never bought a used or new car without consulting it. My friends call me and ask me to look up info on vehicles they are interested in buying. Worth every penny!
