Thread: Chevrolet Cruze reliability - better info

    Chevrolet Cruze reliability - better info

    I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that included actual repair rates. So in late 2005 I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to report on new models sooner and track cars closely as they age.

    We could have some initial reliability stats for the Cruze within a few months--just a matter of getting enough owners involved.

    Participants simply report repairs the month after they occur on a one-page survey. When there are no repairs, they simply report an approximate odometer reading four times a year, at the end of each quarter.

    To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for the Cruze, for free. I'll post results for the Cruze to this thread once they're available.

    We have an updated reliability stat for the Chevrolet Cruze based on owner experiences through September 30, 2011.

    With a reported repair frequency of 24 repair trips per 100 cars per year, the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze has improved to better than average. More recently produced cars have required fewer repairs than earlier ones.

    We'll have further updates in February and May. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and include all model years.

    With a reported repair frequency of 27 repair trips per 100 cars per year, the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze remains better than average. More recently produced cars have required fewer repairs than earlier ones.

    We'll have further updates later this month and in August. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and include all model years.

    We have updated reliability stats for the Chevrolet Cruze based on owner experiences through September 30, 2012.

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

    2012: 34

    2011: 43

    Both are about average on a stricter revised scale.

    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.

    For the 2011 these are 70 and 3, respectively.

    We'll have further updates in February and May. With more owners involved, we could provide more precise information and include all model years.

    Now its 2013, I've to update that of thread with 2013 Chevrolet Cruze which ranks 4 out of 43 Affordable Small Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 50 published reviews and test drives of the Chevrolet Cruze, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
