Default Re: Saturn Outlook reliability (please sign up if you're new)

New stuff this time. We've updated our reliability stats for the Outlook to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. Plus we've added reliability trends graphs. These indicate how a model's reliability has changed as it has aged, and how different model years performed when the same age.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2010 Outlook: 69, high
2009 Outlook: 80, high
2008 Outlook: 77, moderate
2007 Outlook: 56, 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: 48, 3
2009 Outlook: 48, 6
2008 Outlook: 46, 3
2007 Outlook: 52, 7

We'll have further updates in May and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

To see how competitors compare, and to sign up to help improve this information:

Saturn Outlook reliability ratings and comparisons

I've attached the new graph. Common problems that appear at a certain age might be behind some of the dramatic bumps--a close look at the reported repairs might provide some clues.
