Choice.com.au did a survey on lemons in 2016, they surveyed 1505 Australians in 2016 who purchased a new car in the past 5 years. The survey showed a staggering 14% of consumers had experienced major issues with the new car. The major issues either saw the car unusable or impaired the car’s operation.
“The most startling finding from our research was just how many new cars are simply not up to scratch. In fact, two thirds of all new car buyers we surveyed (66%) reported that they had experienced problems with their cars in the first five years.”
The above finding in the Choice survey displays how large this problem actually is. While a lot of Australian’s believe they are on their own, this shows just how many other people are finding themselves in the same situation.
What most people are not aware of is there are people out there fighter on your behalf. As a result of this hundreds of Australian’s have received full refunds, replacements or had their vehicle fixed.
