We've updated the our reliability stats for the MDX to include owner experiences through June 30, 2012.
Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2012: 16, better than average, small sample size
2011: 20, better than average
2010: 20, better than average
2009: 28, better than average
2008: 52, about average
2007: 61, about 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.
These two stats, for the model years with enough data:
2009: 79, < 1
2008: 61, < 1
2007: 54, 5
We'll have further updates in late November and February. With more owners involved, we could provide more precise results.
