We have updated results for the Lambdas based on 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:
The 2010 is better than average, while the others are all 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 36 for the 2007, 47 for the 2008, and 59 for the 2009, and while the percentage of lemons is about 4 for the 2007, about 7 for the 2008, and about 4 for the 2009.
