We've updated our reliability stats for the Impreza to include owner experiences through September 30, 2013.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2012 WRX / STI: 41, moderate, small sample size
2011 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 33, low
2010 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 29, low
2009 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 30, low
2008 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 42, low

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:

2011 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 67, < 1

We'll have further updates in February and in May. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

We've updated our reliability stats for the WRX to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources.

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2013 WRX / STI: 25, low, very small sample size
2012 WRX / STI: 36, moderate, small sample size
2011 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 26, low
2010 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 49, moderate, small sample size
2009 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 64, moderate
2008 Impreza / WRX / Outback Sport: 59, moderate

Small sample size? Then we especially need more owners involved for that model year.
