We have updated results for the Lambdas based on owner experiences through March 31, 2010*. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
The 2007 is worse than average, while the others are about 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 32 for the 2007, 50 for the 2008, and 63 for the 2009, and while the percentage of lemons is about 5 for the 2007 and 2008 and less than one for the 2009.
Nada-odds and Lemon-odds car reliability stats
A big thank you, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in August and November. The more owners participate, the better the information we can provide.
