Default TrueDelta Vehicle Reliability Survey Results, Aura - through March 31, 2008

Thanks to the help of this forum and its members, for which I'm very grateful, we have updated Vehicle Reliability Survey results for the Saturn Aura. These cover owner experiences through March 31, 2008.

The result for the 2007 is similar to past results, just with a larger sample size of 113 (great job, guys). So the 2007's repair rate continues to be worse than average at 98 successful repair trips per 100 vehicles per year.

We had only 20 responses for the 2008. So that result is asterisked. It is also MUCH lower, only 20 successful repair trips per 100 vehicles. The actual repair rate is likely higher, but still considerably lower than for the 2007.

More consistently than other manufacturers, GM tends to work the bugs out in the first year...

I'd like to have a more precise result for the 2008 next time. Just need more participants. Additional 2007s would also be helpful.

For the full set of results, and sign up to help (if you haven't already):

I'm sure my AURA had the dubious distinction of being a standout in your survey...I think I reported a repair just about every month. It's a great site you have there though...very useful information.

Results have been updated.

The repair rate for the 2007 is virtually the same as last time at just under one repair trip per car per year, no surprise given the sample size of over 100.

We have more data on the 2008 this time around. As expected, the repair rate is higher than last time--about 42 successful repair trips per car per year--but still under half that for the 2007, and also at least average, probably a bit better than the average.

Just another case where the first model year requires more attention.

Additioinal participants always helpful, especially for the 2008 and 2009.
