We've updated the results for the IS to include owner experiences through December 31, 2009. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 31

2007: no repairs reported for 15 participating cars

2006: 21

Better than average but small sample sizes in all three cases.

We'll have further updates in May and August. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

Recently enhanced the related repair history survey so that it can (optionally) be used as a personal car maintenance record.

As always, more participants would be helpful. Updated Car Reliability Survey results in May.

In a couple of weeks we'll start previewing the next set of results to participants. The preview results will be updated as responses come in.

The big question: how many model years will we be able to cover this time around? It depends entirely on the number of owners that participate.

We've updated the results for the IS to include owner experiences through June 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the more recent months until the summer or even fall of next year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 19

2007: 14

2006: 44

Better than average but small sample sizes in all three cases.

We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

Updated reliability stats next month.

As always, the more owners participate, the better the information we can provide to everyone.

We've updated the results for the IS to include owner experiences through September 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since April until the summer or even fall of next year.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 26

2007: 13

2006: 59

2002: 53

The 2006 is about average, but close to "better than average," while that others are all better than average. Small and even very small sample sizes in all cases.

We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.
