“AS A MECHANIC ...”

Written on: 03/12/2012

The D&L could have been written as my life story given I have owned a car servicing business for 38 years. Perhaps that's why we drive Toyotas. For those with discretionary spending ability, buy what you like and if it is European you will help bolster the wallets of we mechanics. We were all slowly going broke due to the reliability and quality of Japanese cars, now also beginning to include some of the larger companies from the third world as they grow, so the renewed push into Oz of the… Read Full Review

“Don't enter the car yard without it! ”

Written on: 03/12/2012

I have used the Dog and Lemon guide for years when buying cars or going to the mechanics. I print off the reviews so the car dealers know that I have done my research! I also enjoy reading the car sections which gives you the history of each make/brand - toyota, mercedes etc. It is a good read online. There is nothing else like the Dog and Lemon Guide out there and it is well written. I think it is shame that it doesn't publish a print edition anymore because it is a good Christmas present to… Read Full Review

“Says it like it is”

Written on: 02/12/2012

Petrolheads hate the Dog & Lemon Guide because the Dog & Lemon Guide tells the truth. That guy who writes it is a mechanic by trade and publishes all the ugly stuff that you never read about in shiny car mags. My friends that have bought the cars that the Dog & Lemon Guide recommends have all had a good run. Several of my friends ignored the advice in The Dog & Lemon Guide, and have regretted it since. Truth hurts and people who tell the truth aren't very popular, but it's still true… Read Full Review

“Complete nonsense”

Written on: 27/08/2012 by TheCarGuy (1 review written)

Clive Matthew-Wilson dosn't have the faintest clue about vehicles and just resorts to rubbishing everything as a safe option in place of actual knowledge. Sadly, those whom this book is aimed at are not going to be automotively savy enough to realise that the information in this book is just misleading rubbish. I hate to think how many people have been mislead by this snake oil salesman when making a very expensive buying decision. Its time the motor industry got together and exposed this… Read Full Review

“The online version is a ripoff”

Written on: 28/01/2012 by yaddayadda (1 review written)

I really appreciate the Dog and Lemon for the impartial, albeit often over the top and brutal, reviews of vehicles. Taken with a grain of salt its an excellent source of info. What i do have a serious problem with is the online version. Gone are the days of sitting on the toilet having a quick flick through. Online is the only option and reviews are purchased individually or in packs. The price is nothing short of extortionate and the service you receive is terrible. From dogandlemon.com… Read Full Review

“never bought this but have thumbed it through many...”

Written on: 29/04/2010

never bought this but have thumbed it through many times in newsagents. It rubbishes just about everything and the authors seem to have a particular hatred for anything European. I accept that perhaps much of what is in it is true, but by and large it seems to me that it's just misleading, in that it basically tells you that just about any car you buy is going to give you trouble. Well, I've owned an Alfa (which was reliable, not so much as a Toyota, but then the Alfa was 3,000 times as much… Read Full Review

“The Dog and Lemon Guide really gives you the info on...”

Written on: 24/04/2008 by DuncanJR (1 review written)

The Dog and Lemon Guide really gives you the info on which cars are worth buying and how much to pay for them. How safe they are, how reliable, how to check if they have problems and what problems to check for. I would estimate that the Dog & Lemon Guide has saved me around $1500 car purchases and repairs and I only buy very cheap economical cars. For someone that buys new and/or expensive models this figure would be very much higher.I think I got my $25 worth. This website is aimed at people… Read Full Review
