Updated Car Reliability Information, Through the End of 2019

We’ve continued to survey a small number of models (mostly Teslas) every six months, and now have updated stats on these covering through the end of 2019.

Looking good:
2017-2018 Audi A4 / A5 / etc.
2017 Audi Q7 (no repairs reported by 20 owners during 2019),
2018 Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain
2018 Honda Accord
2016-2018 Mazda CX-5
2017-2018 Subaru Impreza
2018 Subaru Crosstrek
2018 Toyota Camry
2018 VW Tiguan

About average:
2018 Ford F-150
2017-2019 Tesla Model 3
2016.5-2017 Tesla Model S
2016 Tesla Model X
2018 VW GTI

2018 Audi Q5
2018 Honda Odyssey
2012-2015 Tesla Model S
2016-2017 Volvo XC90

In the danger zone: 2018 VW Atlas

At this point our sample sizes are small of quite a few of these. But it does seem clear that Tesla’s reliability issues are largely behind it, and that repair frequencies of new ones should be close to the industry average.
