We have updated results for the GL-Class to include owner experiences through June 30, 2011.

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

2008: 134, worse than average

2007: 125, worse than average

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

We have updated our reliability stats for the GL-Class to include owner experiences through December 31, 2012.

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

2008: 143, high

2007: 99, high

Small sample sizes in both cases, which could explain the difference between the stats. Also the 2008s are still under warranty.

Thank you, once again, everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates later this month and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

We've updated our reliability stats for the GL-Class to include owner experiences through June 30, 2014.

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

2014 GL-Class: 15, low, very small sample size
2008 GL-Class: 78, moderate, small sample size
2007 GL-Class: 169, high, very small sample size

Next updates later this month and in February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be. I'd love to get rid of the sample size disclaimers and cover more model years
