TrueDelta has released updated Car Reliability Survey results for the Saturn Outlook and the other Lambdas. As noted three months ago, the difference between the 2007 and the 2008 has narrowed, and both are now close to the averages for those years.

We don't have enough responses for the 2009 yet for a full result, but so far the repair rate appears to be very low--so better than the 2007 and 2008. Note that the 2008 had a very low repair rate initially, though.

A big thanks to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May, August, and November, so additional participants would certainly be helpful.

TrueDelta now has a separate results page for each model that includes the scores of competitors for easy comparisons. The one for the Saturn Outlook:

We have updated results for the Outlook and the other Lambdas based on owner experiences through the end of September. In terms of successful repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2009: 34

2008: 76

2007: 80

The 2009 is better than average so far, while the others are about average. The 2008 was also better than average a year ago, so it remains to be seen whether or not the 2009s will go down the same path.

We've also introduced two new 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 44 for the 2007, 57 for the 2008, and 77 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 thanks, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in February and May. The more owners participate, the better the information we can provide.

2010: 38

2009: 59

2008: 73

2007: 92

The 2007 is worse than average, while the others are about average.

I've started collecting data. But I'll need more participants before I can start providing results. For example, 48 Auras are now signed up. The same level of participation for the Outlook would guarantee decent results.
