Trying to remember if we've had transmission failures reported for the 2010s. GM might have upgraded the wave plate by that point.
We've updated our reliability stats for the Outlook to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Reliability information elsewhere is based on a survey conducted in April 2015--well over a year ago.
Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2010 Outlook: 75, high
2009 Outlook: 87, high
2008 Outlook: 82, moderate
2007 Outlook: 61, moderate
We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:
2010 Outlook: 50, 3
2009 Outlook: 35, 2
2008 Outlook: 49, 5
We'll have further updates in November and next February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.
