BMW i3 Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of BMW i3 reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of BMW i3s with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of BMW i3s that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track BMW i3 lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the BMW i3 has been recently.
