We've updated our reliability stats for the Lancer to include owner experiences through March 31, 2013.
Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2010 Lancer: 23, low, small sample size
2009 Lancer: 19, low
2008 Lancer: 37, low, small sample size
2006 Lancer: 0, low, very 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:
2009 Lancer: 80, < 1
We'll have further updates in August and in November. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.
