Although hybrids are technological wonders that just may eventually reduce the stranglehold that foreign oil has on the U.S., it doesn’t mean they’re exempt from defects. The Zonie Report notes that a Tucson, Arizona woman has filed a lemon law case over her 2008 Toyota Prius. Apparently, two months after she bought the car, Julie Chambers’ Prius conked out, and was out of service for 112 days. She’s claiming that the dealer didn’t honor the warranty and didn’t repair the vehicle.
If it’s a “green” lemon, does that make it a lime?
