‘What is a lemon car?’ is a commonly asked question. A lemon turns sour in your mouth. Basically a lemon car is a dud. It is a car that, although it looks perfect when you buy it, turns out to have everything possible go wrong. If it is a used car, you should check the VIN number prior to purchase and obtain a vehicle history report to make sure you are not buying a lemon. The VIN number should have the vehicle history, which will show you what has or hasn’t been fixed, since the vehicle was originally purchased. If it is a new car, there is a law which can protect you against such a product.
