Signed my car up

Nothing but smooth sailing to report, but I do have one of the first cars in CA (took delivery in Jan), so I will keep it up to date.

Thanks, I really appreciate your help.

We'll almost certainly have a partial result in February. But for a full result we'll probably need about 20 more owners signed up.

For cars with enough participants we're now reporting two new stats, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds," to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year (not a thing wrong, nada) and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop. So anyone who's not already participating, please consider doing so.

A few more owners have signed up. Thank, I appreciate it. That said, more remain needed.

Help us provide the best possible reliability information on the 370Z:

We will have a partial result for the 2009 370Z later this month. Thanks, guys.

For a full result more participants remain needed.

We have our first result for the 370Z. With a reported repair frequency of 49 repair trips per 100 cars per year, the 2009 is about average.

Small sample size, so this is a partial result.

Everyone who has been helping, thank you, I appreciate it. We'll have further updates in May and August. With more participants, we could provide more precise results and cover both model years.

Recently enhanced the related repair history survey so that it can (optionally) be used as a personal car maintenance record.

Updated Car Reliability Survey results in May, with a preview for participants soon. The 370Z will be in this update, with a partial result. More participants remain needed for a full result. Details here:

Updated stats very soon.

This time around we were only five responses short of the number needed for a full result. So even a few more participants would be very helpful.

We have updated results for the 370Z based on owner experiences through March 31, 2010. With a reported repair frequency of 45 repair trips per 100 cars per year, the 2009 remains about average.

Small sample size, so this is again a partial result. But close to the minimum for a full result.

Thank you, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in August and November. With more participants, we could provide more precise results and cover both model years.

Updated stats in about two weeks. We'll have a full result for the 2009 this time, thanks to everyone who has been helping out.

More 2009s would still be helpful, and we don't yet have enough for the 2010 to include it in the survey.

In the 986 and 987(as well as 996) it is well known that there is a very rate of engine failure. Porsche will not publish any figures or answer any questions on the issue. Would be interesting to contact those boards to get some answers as they would love a good valid survey. On the Z, have not heard reports through the years on major engine failures but have heard of buring oil issues earlier and some tire feathering. Nissan seems to correct morst of their problems whereas Porsche tries small fixes instead of spending big bucks to effect a change. Nissan as a whole seems more responsive to customers or maybe they just want to grab more of the market where Porsche feels they have their niche and people will buy their marque regardless of possibility of engine failure once the cars are out of warranty.

I just signed up. But hey if you want more Porsche owners to sign up that still show a fair amount of engine failures. Check out 6speedonline. Not only will you have the Porsche owners, but also the Mercedes, BMW, GTR, and also Lamborghini owners.

We have updated results for the 370Z based on owner experiences through June 30, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the more recent months until the summer or even fall of next year.

With a reported repair frequency of 38 repair trips per 100 cars per year, the 2009 remains about average, but close to "better than average."

We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise results and cover both model years.

We have updated results for the 370Z based on owner experiences through December 31, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since last April until the summer or even fall of this year.

With a reported repair frequency of 13 repair trips per 100 cars per year, the 2009 is "much better than average."

We'll have further updates in May and August. With more participants, we could provide more precise results and cover all model years.
