Anyone trying to choose between the new Forester and new CX-5 based on reliability, sorry, we can’t offer much help. For the 2015 Forester, 46 owners reported a total of zero repairs. For the 2015 CX-5, 31 owners reported…zero repairs.
Zero repairs were also reported through the end of September for the new A3, Genesis, and GTI, but with only 11-12 owners responding so far in each case we aren’t yet posting even an asterisked stats for these. I’m impressed regardless, as these are all-new cars.
We have an asterisked stat for the 2015 WRX, and it’s not a pretty one. With 16 owners responding, six repairs. Annualized, this works out to a bit over a repair trip per car per year. An accurate stat will have to await more data, but this isn’t pointing in a good direction.
