We have updated our reliability stats for the VUE based on owner experiences through September 30, 2012.

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

2009: 25, better than average, small sample size

2008: 31, better than average

2007: 48, about average

2006: 41, better than average

2005: 62, about average, small sample size

2004: 55, about average, small sample size

2003: 47, better than average, small sample size

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: 77, < 1

2007: 66, 4

We'll have further updates in February and May. We'd love to provide more precise stats and cover more model years--just a matter of getting more owners involved.

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
2007 VUE: 80, moderate, small sample size
2006 VUE: 91, moderate, small sample size
2005 VUE: 108, high, very small sample size
2004 VUE: 73, low, small sample size
2003 VUE: 88, moderate, small sample size

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: 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.

Our reliability stats for the VUE 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:

2009 VUE: 39, low, very small sample size
2008 VUE: 47, low
2007 VUE: 86, moderate, small sample size
2006 VUE: 105, high, small sample size
2005 VUE: 95, moderate, very small sample size
2004 VUE: 80, moderate, small sample size
2003 VUE: 66, low, small sample size

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: 64, 3

If a model year isn't listed, or its sample size is small, then we especially need more owners involved.

2007 VUE: 65, moderate
