    So there's a reason why Ford's reputation is improving. Good to see.

    We have updated results for the Prius to include owner experiences through December 31, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since last April until the summer or even fall of this year.

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

    2009: 12

    2008: 22

    2007: 23

    2006: 22

    2005: 26

    2004: 47

    All are much better than average.

    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 Prius, these two stats are:

    2009: 87, < 1

    2008: 82, < 1

    2007: 82, 2

    2006: 83, < 1

    2005: 84, < 1

    Thank you, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May and August.
