As Toyota skids into an ocean of problems and uncertainty continues in the U.S. automotive industry, Lemon-Aid Used Cars and Trucks 20112012 shows buyers how to pick the cheapest and most reliable vehicles from the past 30 years. Lemon-Aid guides are unlike any other car and truck books on the market. Phil Edmonston, Canada's automotive Dr. Phil for 40 years, pulls no punches.

Like five books in one, Lemon-Aid Used Cars and Trucks is an expos of car scams and gas consumption lies; a do-it-yourself service manual; an independent guide that covers beaters, lemons, and collectibles; an archive of secret service bulletins granting free repairs; and a legal primer that even lawyers cant beat! Phil delivers the goods on free fixes for Chrysler, Ford, and GM engine, transmission, brake, and paint defects; lets you know about Corvette and Mustang tops that fly off; gives the lowdown on Honda, Hyundai, and Toyota engines and transmissions; and provides the latest information on computer module glitches.

Phil Edmonston, Canada's toughest customer, is a former MP and Consumers Union board member. Over the past 40 years, he has written more than 140 Lemon-Aid bestsellers. About three decades ago, Nissan and Honda sued him for $5 million -- and lost. Currently, he lives in Panama.

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!
