Default Re: 2008 VUE reliability - how will it compare?

We've updated our reliability stats for the VUE to include owner experiences through June 30, 2014 (making them about 14 months ahead of some others).

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

2009 VUE: 36, low, small sample size
2008 VUE: 52, 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:

2008 VUE: 58, < 1

Next updates in November and in February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

For repair descriptions, the stats of other cars, and to sign up to help improve this information:

We've updated our reliability stats for the VUE to include owner experiences through September 30, 2014.

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

2009 VUE: 38, low, small sample size
2008 VUE: 57, 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:

2008 VUE: 50, < 1

Additional participants always helpful (especially if you see "small sample size" next to the year, or no stat at all).

We've updated our reliability stats for the VUE to include owner experiences through the end of 2014.

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

2009 VUE: 73, moderate, very small sample size
2008 VUE: 43, low

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:

2008 VUE: 58, < 1

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

Default Re: 2008 VUE reliability - how will it compare?

So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the VUE now include owner experiences through March 31, 2015. (Others are nearly a year behind.)

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year ("low" is best):

2009 VUE: 48, low, very small sample size
2008 VUE: 57, moderate

Plus, the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 VUE: 68, 4

No stat for a model year? Then we very much need more participants for it. Same for those with small sample size notes. Next updates in August and November.

Default Re: 2008 VUE reliability - how will it compare?

I haven't posted in a very long time so this is going to be a classic case of closing the barn door after the horse has gone, but I bought a 2008 VUE XR in late 2007 and drove it 100,000 miles by 2012 with no repairs or brakepad replacement and only 4 tires at 55,000 miles. It was probably the most reliable Saturn I owned since my first of 9 in 1992. Sadly, I decided to trade it before spending for the 100,000 mile service(and new tires and finally brake pads) because I thought parts would be harder to get. Later I found out that the Chevy Captiva was basically a badge engineered VUE, so body parts etc. would have still been available. That being said, the VUE was probably my last American vehicle, though,even that is blurred by foreign assembly of many GM,Ford and the Italian owned Chrysler Co.

We've updated our reliability stats for the VUE to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2009 VUE: 45, low, very small sample size
2008 VUE: 53, 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:

2008 VUE: 60, 4

No stat, or a small sample size? Then we especially need more owners involved for that model year.
