Guy's Lambo declared a Lemon

A mysterious noise coming from the brakes lead this guy to take his Gallrado to several different dealers several times. Finally after Lambo said they wouldn't or couldn't fix it he sued under the Washington state Lemon law and won.

In case that doesn't work here is an old-fashioned

Maybe it has something to do with the color he chose...the brakes were squealing trying to get away from the paint...

He should be glad it didn't have time to explode into a ball of flames yet.

Someone should declare that man's head a lemon. How many times has someone tried to fix his skin and hair? Either not enough or way too many times. I can't tell which.

Unfortunately, I doubt replacements are available through the Washington State lemon law.

Yes, but it's unacceptable when you're driving an Audi.

that was sarcasm, but the days of italian cars losing parts randomly are over. Ferrari and Lambo (audi) both build good stuff. Keep them in good health and they'll treat you well.

Uh no they aren't. Our Delta has already lost the sunroof cover handle and has had issues with the rear windscreen wiper. In 2 weeks of ownership...

Thats just plain bad luck man . Its not a regular occurrence like it was in the past. All the expensive, hand built cars were notorious for losing pieces, but everything is assembled more or less the same nowadays. As long as your Delta doesn't blow up you should be okay .

And I've got to agree with Matt on this guy's terrible hairdoo. It looks like someone took a koala bear, tore out its guts and left the top half wrapped around a basketball to dry in the sun.
