Especially need more 2010s--have people stopped buying Versas?

More for other years also always helpful.

We have updated results for the Versa to include owner experiences through March 31, 2010. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2009: 36

2008: 27

2007: 37

All three 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.

The percentage with no repairs is about 69 for the 2007, 81 for the 2008, and 76 for the 2009, while the percentage of lemons is about 2 for the 2007 and 2008 and less than one for the 2009.

Nada-odds and Lemon-odds car reliability stats

A big thank you, once again, to AZhitman, this forum, and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in August and November. With more participants, we could provide more precise information. Especially need more 2009s.

"No repairs" is not the same as notion. In fact, it's very helpful information for people who want cars that tend to require no repairs.

So thanks for helping, even if you never have a repair to report!

We can use more participants for these cars. Those not yet signed up can do so here:

Just registered my 2015 SL.

Nothing going on as of yet. Just under 3,000 on the ODO. Had 33 miles on it when I picked it up (mileage from the original dealer to my dealer).

Love it so far.
