lemon -> σαράβαλο, μπακατέλα, για τα μπάζα, παλιοσίδερα

A lemon is a defective car that is found to have numerous or severe defects not readily apparent before its purchase. Any vehicle with these issues can be termed a 'lemon,' and, by extension, any product which has major flaws that render it unfit for its purpose can be described as a 'lemon'.

Have you seen Joe's new car yet ?
Yeah. It looks good, but she's had nothing but problems with it.
That's too bad. It sounds like she got a real lemon.
She sure did. No sooner did she drive it home from the dealer's than it proved defective and started breaking down.

In Cockney rhyming slang, a "lemon" is a favor -" lemon flavour" - as in "Gi' us a lemon, mate."
In fan fiction, a 'lemon' is a scene or story that includes explicitly described sex.

A lemon is any unexpectedly defective or undesirable thing or person, usually said of bad choices, as in "We picked a lemon when we chose that guy," or of unsellable cars ( in the motor trade), or new-bought cars that develop mysterious serial problems. To hand someone a lemon is to swindle.
