I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that made the differences between cars clearer. So a few years ago I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age.

To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for the Elantra, for free. I'll share results for the Elantra in this thread after each update.

Our current reliability stats for the Elantra include owner experiences through September 30, 2014. Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 Elantra: 0, low, very small sample size
2013 Elantra: 16, low
2012 Elantra: 44, moderate
2011 Elantra: 38, moderate
2010 Elantra: 18, low, small sample size
2009 Elantra: 37, low, small sample size
2008 Elantra: 25, low
2007 Elantra: 48, low, small sample size
2006 Elantra: 30, low, small sample size
2005 Elantra: 62, moderate
2004 Elantra: 72, moderate, very small sample size
2003 Elantra: 102, moderate, small sample size
2002 Elantra: 107, moderate, 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:

2013 Elantra: 86, < 1
2012 Elantra: 66, < 1
2008 Elantra: 75, < 1

Additional participants always helpful (especially if you see "low sample size" next to the year, or no stat at all).

To view the repairs behind these numbers, check the stats for other cars, and sign up to help improve this information (next update in February):

We've updated our reliability stats for the Elantra to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2014 Elantra: 22, low, small sample size
2013 Elantra: 15, low
2012 Elantra: 24, low
2011 Elantra: 55, moderate, small sample size
2010 Elantra: 44, low, small sample size
2009 Elantra: 48, low, small sample size
2008 Elantra: 23, low
2007 Elantra: 67, moderate, small sample size
2006 Elantra: 71, moderate, small sample size
2005 Elantra: 106, moderate, small sample size
2003 Elantra: 38, low, very small sample size
2002 Elantra: 116, moderate, 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:

2013 Elantra: 82, < 1
2012 Elantra: 73, < 1
2008 Elantra: 80, < 1

No stat, or a small sample size? Then we especially need more owners involved for that model year.
