This compendium of everything thats new in cars and trucks is packed with feedback from Canadian drivers, insider tips, internal service bulletins, and confidential memos to help the consumer select whats safe, reliable, and fuel-frugal. Know all about profit margins, rebates, and safety defects. And when things go wrong, fight back! Lemon-Aids complaint tactics, sample letters, Internet gripe sites, and winning jurisprudence will get you attention and a refund!
