The latest TrueDelta Vehicle Reliability Survey results have been posted. These are for the year ending September 30, 2007.

For the 2003 Cadillac CTS, I have an average of 4.9 months of data on 14 cars. The stat of 88 successful repair trips per 100 vehicles per year (0.9 per vehicle) is about average for a 2003 model.

For the 2004 Cadillac CTS, I have an average of 3.5 months of data on 15 cars. The stat of 62 successful repair trips per 100 vehicles per year (0.6 per vehicle) is about average for a 2004 model. Judging from the results for 2003 and 2005, the actual repair rate is probably a little higher, around 80 per 100.

For the 2005 Cadillac CTS, I have an average of 4.8 months of data on 16 cars. The stat of 78 successful repair trips per 100 vehicles per year (0.8 per vehicle) is about average for a 2005 model.

All three sample sizes are very small, so any one result would be shaky. But all three are fairly close together, suggesting that all three years are about average.

Everyone who has been helping out with this research, thanks. Those who aren't yet helping out, or who have signed up but did not respond to the surveys, I hope you'll consider doing so. With larger sample sizes the results would be much more precise and I'd be able to break out the V.
