KWTV-TV examined how "vehicle manufacturers buy back cars which can't be fixed, declaring them lemons. Almost all of those cars are auctioned off and put back on car lots. But some of those cars have serious mechanical problems which aren't fixed before they're resold. We found that the automobile industry is laundering lemons and taking advantage of a lack of state disclosure laws."
