BMW i3 Reliability

You won't find BMW i3 reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the BMW i3 truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track BMW i3 reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the BMW i3 was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the BMW i3 has been recently.
