Common Lemon Vehicle Problems
Lemon cars involve both safety- and non-safety-related issues. Problems related to safety include issues with:
- Steering and alignment
- Transmission – sudden lack of acceleration, slipping, over-revving
- Stalling or shutting off
Other times, the problem is not related to safety, such as:
- Transmission noises, grinding, and clunking
- Electrical problems with the radio, locks, windows, or air conditioning
- Cosmetic issues, such as defects in car molding

- The manufacturer repurchases the car from you.
