Default TrueDelta Vehicle Reliability Survey - initial result for the Saturn Astra

It was a lot of work, but I managed to gather enough data to post an initial result for the 2008 Saturn Astra today at TrueDelta.com. Only results based on 30+ responses and 90+ months of data are visible to non-members on the site. The result for the Astra didn't quite reach the latter mark, so it's not publicly visible on the site. But I'll also post it here, since members of this forum have been so helpful.

As promised, I've also given credit to this forum in today's press release--couldn't have done it without you guys.

Anyway, at least initially the 2008 Saturn Astra appears to require fewer repairs than the typical new car. The stat I focus on is number of successful repair trips per 100 cars per year. The Astra came in at 29 (i.e. about 0.3 per car), which is about half the average and better than I expected given the car's European origins. It probably helps that this isn't really a new design, but has been on sale in Europe for a couple of years.

Next update in November. The current result is so low that a higher number next time would not surprise me, but even a higher result is likely to be better than average.

Full set of results:
