If we've done this for our car once already can we go back and add information? In short, can we update information currently available?

If you're looking to edit past entries, you might have to email me with the changes.

If you're asking about adding new entries, this is how the survey is supposed to work. It's designed so people respond following the end of each quarter.

We've updated our reliability stats for the L-Series to include owner experiences through December 31, 2013.

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

2001 L-Series: 86, moderate, very small sample size

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

Our reliability stats for the L-Series now include owner experiences through March 31, 2014, making them nearly a year ahead of other sources.

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

2003 L-Series: 60, low, very small sample size
2001 L-Series: 69, low, very small sample size

Thank you, once again, everyone who has been helping. Next update in August.

We did not have enough responses for the L-Series in the latest round. To again provide stats for these cars, we'll need at least a few more participants.

I've added my '03. I listed no repairs since Sept. 1st though some are definitely on the horizon for the next quarter.

Thanks. We're going to need more participants if we're going to continue to cover the L-Series, as more members have been selling them than buying them.

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

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

2003 L-Series: 91, moderate, very small sample size
2001 L-Series: 69, low, very small sample size

More members have been selling these than buying them, so additional participants would be very helpful. Otherwise, we might not be able to cover these cars for much longer.

To view the repairs behind these numbers, check the stats for other cars, and sign up to help improve this information (next update in February):

Well, the stats might look worse for the next update, I submitted a couple of repairs at the end of Feb, early March 2015.
I'm new here, but have been on TrueDelta for several years. It's a nice website and it is constantly being improved.

Default Re: L-Series Reliability

So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the L-Series 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):

2003 L-Series: 66, low, very small sample size
2002 L-Series: 59, low, very small sample size

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.

Our reliability stats for the L-Series now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2003 L-Series: 61, low, very small sample size
2002 L-Series: 45, low, very small sample size

We've updated our reliability stats for the L-Series to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Reliability information elsewhere is based on a survey conducted in April 2015--well over a year ago. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year (lower is better):

2003 L-Series: 50, low, very small sample size
