Thousands of U.S. Lemons Resold to Unknowing Canadians; Free Carfax Lemon Check Available for Consumers

    CENTREVILLE, VA., November 15 /CNW/ - Droves of dangerous used cars
declared lemons in the United States have made their way into Canada and are
being resold to uninformed consumers. A recent report by CBC News highlights
the plight of Canadian car buyers who are unaware these cars are parked their
driveway. To help identify vehicles bought back by auto manufacturers, used
car shoppers can check for lemon brands using the free Carfax Lemon Check at

    Canada currently has no lemon laws and the strength of the Canadian
dollar is driving an influx of U.S. lemons across the border. However, cars
purchased with Carfax Vehicle History Reports that do not contain a lemon
brand reported by a U.S. State Department of Motor Vehicles may be eligible to
be bought back by Carfax.

    Share with your viewers some additional resources they can use to avoid
unknowingly buying a defective used car. Carfax communications director Larry
Gamache is available for interview to discuss the U.S. lemon laws and offer
tips for avoiding the purchase of potentially unsafe vehicles.
