So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the Sonata now include owner experiences through March 31, 2015. (Others are nearly a year behind.)

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2015 Sonata: 0, low
2014 Sonata: 11, low
2013 Sonata: 12, low
2012 Sonata: 29, low
2011 Sonata: 35, low
2010 Sonata: 37, low, small sample size
2009 Sonata: 38, low
2008 Sonata: 32, low, small sample size
2007 Sonata: 33, low
2006 Sonata: 76, moderate
2005 Sonata: 56, low, very small sample size
2004 Sonata: 55, low, 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:

2013 Sonata: 91, 2
2012 Sonata: 78, 3
2011 Sonata: 76, 2
2009 Sonata: 70, 3
2006 Sonata: 49, 3

Next updates in August and in November. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.
