We have updated results for the Lambdas based on 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:
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 33 for the 2007, 52 for the 2008, and 62 for the 2009, and while the percentage of lemons is about 2 for the 2007, about 4 for the 2008, and about one for the 2009.
