Our reliability stats for the Boxster now include owner experiences through March 31, 2014, making them nearly a year ahead of other sources.

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

2014 Boxster: 11, low
2013 Boxster: 0, low, small sample size
2008 Boxster: 31, low
2007 Boxster: 53, moderate
2006 Boxster: 47, low
2005 Boxster: 43, low
2004 Boxster: 35, low, small sample size
2003 Boxster: 60, low
2002 Boxster: 96, moderate, small sample size
2001 Boxster: 54, low
2000 Boxster: 48, low
1999 Boxster: 11, low, small sample size

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:

2008 Boxster: 80, < 1
2007 Boxster: 68, < 1
2006 Boxster: 58, < 1
2005 Boxster: 62, < 1
2001 Boxster: 63, 3

Thank you, once again, everyone who has been helping. Next update in August.

So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the Boxster and Cayman now include owner experiences through March 31, 2015. (Others are nearly a year behind.)

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year ("low" is best):

2014 Boxster and Cayman: 17, low
2013 Boxster: 13, low
2008 Boxster and Cayman: 23, low
2007 Boxster and Cayman: 53, low
2006 Boxster and Cayman: 29, low
2005 Boxster: 38, low
2004 Boxster: 40, low, small sample size
2003 Boxster: 65, low
2002 Boxster: 31, low
2001 Boxster: 70, low
2000 Boxster: 64, low
1999 Boxster: 63, low, small sample size

Plus, the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2014 Boxster and Cayman: 79, < 1
2013 Boxster: 92, < 1
2008 Boxster and Cayman: 82, < 1
2007 Boxster and Cayman: 58, < 1
2006 Boxster and Cayman: 73, < 1
2005 Boxster: 73, < 1
2001 Boxster: 50, 8

No stat for a model year? Then we very much need more participants for it. Same for those with small sample size notes. Next updates in August and November.

Thanks!

Our reliability stats for the Boxster and Cayman (included below) now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2015 Boxster: 0, low, very small sample size
2014 Boxster: 14, low
2013 Boxster: 10, low
2008 Boxster: 29, low
2007 Boxster: 53, low
2006 Boxster: 29, low
2005 Boxster: 42, low
2004 Boxster: 33, low, small sample size
2003 Boxster: 36, low
2002 Boxster: 30, low
2001 Boxster: 65, low
2000 Boxster: 61, 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:

2014 Boxster: 85, < 1
2013 Boxster: 89, < 1
2008 Boxster: 83, 3
2007 Boxster: 57, < 1
2006 Boxster: 71, < 1
2005 Boxster: 61, < 1
2001 Boxster: 57, < 1

If a model year isn't listed, or its sample size is small, then we especially need more owners involved.
