Glad to participate with an '09, if still needed.

The survey is continuous, with updated results four times a year. So it's never too late to join.

We certainly need more 2009s.

We have updated results for the xB to include owner experiences through March 2009. In terms of successful repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2008: 30, better than average

A big thank you to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in August and November. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover the 2009 as well.

So far 76 2008s and 25 2009s signed up. Additional participants always helpful, and especially need more of the latter. And of course the 2010s, now that they're at dealers.

We have updated results for the xB to include owner experiences through June 2009. In terms of successful repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2009: 45, about average, but small sample size

2008: 21, better than average

Everyone who has been helping, thanks, I certainly appreciate it. We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

Thanks, I certainly appreciate it. The more owners participate, the better the information we can provide to everyone. And we especially need 2009s and 2010s.

2008: 25, better than average

Everyone who has been helping, thanks, I certainly appreciate it. We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We've also introduced two new 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.

Updated results again later this month.

For the 2009 we were just two responses short of the miniimum for a full result. So a couple more participants would clearly be very helpful.

Not yet signed up? Details here:

Just enhanced the related repair history survey so that it can (optionally) be used as a personal car maintenance record.

As always, more participants would be helpful. Updated Car Reliability Survey results in May, with a preview for participants in mid-April.

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

Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the more recent months until the summer or even fall of next year.

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

2009: 21

2008: 32

Both are better than average. With the 2009 we were a single car short of the minimum for a full result, so on the site it's asterisked and visible only to signed-in members.

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 68, and the percentage of lemons is less than one.

Everyone who has been helping, thanks, I certainly appreciate it. We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years.

We have some new pages that display all reported repairs by problem area:

2008 Scion xB problem reports

From this page it's possible to select a different model year or specify a problem area.
