Anyone see on Today Tonight last night the story about the guy who bought a HSV GTS. He had trouble after trouble, and after a big legal fight, he has apparently won, GMH had appealed to the supreme court and lost their appeal. They have now paid him most of the cost of his GTS.
Could this be the pre-cursor for "Lemon Car LAws"
I know that if it is, there will be a lot of happy campers here who have bought and been stuck with Lemons.
One can only hope that we can finally get treated right with the purchase of our new vehicles

Is there any info on what the issues were (apart from the HSV badge) as one report I seen said it was in the dealers 7 times and had 12 warrenty repairs in 2 years. Hell mine clocked that up in 7 months. They claimed an engineer was scared to drive it?
Bring on the lemon laws.
This would be much better sorted out by the market-place, than by legislation.

you say he got "most" of the GTS cost back.....might sound good, but its not good enough. he bought a car that was a piece of shit, they built that piece of shit, and should refund the FULL price of the piece of shit.
