Just because a repair record doesn't show that a service technician found the problem that you brought the vehicle in for, doesn't mean that the problem doesn't exist, or that your vehicle isn't a lemon. While the mechanic may have simply missed or overlooked the defect, sometimes a certain make or model may suffer from a known uniform problem that the dealership's service department does not yet officially recognize exists because manufacturer has yet to discover a "fix" or redesign for the vehicle's defect. Instead, the service writer may write "could not duplicate" or "vehicle operating as designed" and allow you to drive away with a potentially dangerous vehicle.

Each repair order for your vehicle often has multiple copies generated for different departments. While the consumer should always get a copy for their records, the "Customer's Copy" is usually only a summation of the complaint, and the what work was performed to the vehicle for concerns that were verified . In addition to the customer's copy is an internal "Hard Copy" that contains the mechanic's notes and observations for each repair that is not shared with the customer.
