Default Re: Vehicle Reliability Survey result - Scion xB

Updated results next month.

As always, the more owners participate, the better the information we can provide to everyone.

We have updated results for the xB to include owner experiences through September 30, 2010.

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

2010: no repairs reported yet, 26 responses

2009: 10

2008: 21

All are better than average.

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.

In the case of the 2008 xB, the percentage with no repairs is about 80, and the percentage of lemons is less than one.

Thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We continually survey members. This isn't a poll.

Only about 8 percent of site visitors come from threads like this one.

We have updated results for the xB to include owner experiences through December 31, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since last April until the summer or even fall of this year.

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

2010: no repairs reported yet, 12 responses

2009: 5

2008: 32

All are better than average.

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.

In the case of the 2008 xB, the percentage with no repairs is about 80, and the percentage of lemons is less than one.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

I've sent you an email to check one thing: the main survey only asks about repairs starting with the month you join. Was this DIY repair in March?
