I found this "topic" intriguing.
I've been searching for statistics for lemon cars. I've not been able to find any other than from the state of Hawaii <here>
for 2002. I believe Consumer Reports
has them, but you need to pay $5.00 minimum for the POSSIBILITY
of such information...can't tell if they actually have it or not.
Kurt...do you have (or have access to) statistics of this nature that you could share with us?
