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.

The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise our information will be. 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, following the end of each quarter.

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

Our latest reliability stats for the Versa include owner experiences through June 30, 2013. (Another source is about 14 months behind.)

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

2012 Versa: 31, moderate, very small sample size
2012 Versa hatchback: 16, low, very small sample size
2011 Versa: 15, low, small sample size
2010 Versa: 39, moderate, small sample size
2009 Versa: 22, low
2008 Versa: 37, low
2007 Versa: 58, moderate

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 Versa: 80, < 1
2008 Versa: 70, < 1
2007 Versa: 53, 3

We'll have further updates in November and February.

Rob: I did not know the site was out there. Did they add the Versa forum to the site. I looked but did not see it. VV

Thanks for adding us. I think I missed my last month check in. I was having email issues. But soon will update it all and possibly might have a repair to report finally.

We'll have updated stats soon. Unfortunately, we'll again be short on responses for model years from 2010 on. I'd like to have solid stats for every model year--a simple matter of getting more owners involved.

One of the crucial factors to consider when buying new or used car is reliability. A vehicle's reliability can seriously affect how satisfied you'll be with a car over the years. However, according to Consumer Reports' 2012 survey of automobiles, it found that the ticket price of an automobile has little to do with its reliability. The magazine showed the list of the most and least dependable models of 2012. Article source: Consumer Reports Best Cars List.

New stuff this time. We've updated our reliability stats for the Versa to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. Plus we've added reliability trends graphs. These indicate how a model's reliability has changed as it has aged, and how different model years performed when the same age.

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

2014 Versa: 0, low, very small sample size
2012 Versa: 0, low, very small sample size
2012 Versa hatchback: 11, low, very small sample size
2011 Versa: 9, low, very small sample size
2010 Versa: 19, low, very small sample size
2009 Versa: 43, low
2008 Versa: 57, moderate
2007 Versa: 57, moderate

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 Versa: 70, < 1
2008 Versa: 68, 3
2007 Versa: 61, 4

We'll have further updates in May and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

So, how have these cars been doing lately?

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

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year ("low" is best):

2014 Versa: 0, low, small sample size
2012 Versa: 0, low, very small sample size
2012 Versa hatchback: 12, low, very small sample size
2011 Versa: 29, low, very small sample size
2010 Versa: 24, low, very small sample size
2009 Versa: 51, moderate
2008 Versa: 63, moderate
2007 Versa: 59, moderate

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 Versa: 58, 4
2008 Versa: 62, 4
2007 Versa: 59, 8

No stat for a model year? Then we very much need more participants for it. Same for those with small sample size notes. Next updates in August and November.

Our reliability stats for the Versa now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2014 Versa: 11, low, small sample size
2012 Versa: 13, low, very small sample size
2011 Versa: 34, low, very small sample size
2010 Versa: 0, low, very small sample size
2009 Versa: 50, moderate
2008 Versa: 47, low
2007 Versa: 62, moderate

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 Versa: 63, 8
2008 Versa: 75, 7
2007 Versa: 54, 7

If a model year isn't listed, or its sample size is small, then we especially need more owners involved.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Versa 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:

2015 Versa: 42, moderate, small sample size
2014 Versa: 27, low, small sample size
2012 Versa: 13, low, very small sample size
2011 Versa: 109, high, very small sample size
2010 Versa: 21, low, very small sample size
2009 Versa: 58, moderate
2008 Versa: 42, low
2007 Versa: 67, moderate

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:

2007 Versa: 52, 4

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

We've updated our reliability stats for the Versa to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Reliability information elsewhere is based on a survey conducted in April 2015--well over a year ago.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year (lower is better):

2015 Versa: 24, moderate, small sample size
2014 Versa: 21, low, very small sample size
2012 Versa: 57, high, very small sample size
2012 Versa hatchback: 11, low, very small sample size
2010 Versa: 32, low, very small sample size
2009 Versa: 86, high
2008 Versa: 58, moderate
2007 Versa: 79, moderate

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:

2007 Versa: 38, 4

No stat or a small sample size? Then additional participants would be especially helpful.
