We have updated results for the Outlook and the other Lambdas based on owner experiences through December 31, 2009. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
The 2008 and 2009 are about average, while the 2007 has declined a bit and is now again worse than average.
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.
With the Lambdas the percentage with no repairs is about 40 for the 2007, 53 for the 2008, and 74 for the 2009, and while the percentage of lemons is about 3 for the 2007, 5 for the 2008, and less than one for the 2009.
Nada-odds and Lemon-odds car reliability stats
A big thanks, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May and August. The more owners participate, the better the information we can provide.
