We've updated our reliability stats for the 5-Series to include owner experiences through March 31, 2013.

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

2013 5-Series: 0, low, small sample size
2012 5-Series: 13, low, small sample size
2011 5-Series: 17, low
2010 5-Series: 65, moderate
2009 5-Series: 51, moderate, small sample size
2008 528 / 550 / M5: 74, moderate
2008 535: 69, moderate
2007 5-Series: 80, high
2006 5-Series: 55, moderate
2005 5-Series: 62, moderate, very small sample size
2004 5-Series: 78, moderate
2003 5-Series: 149, high
2002 5-Series: 113, high
2001 5-Series: 114, high, small sample size
2000 5-Series: 94, moderate, small sample size
1999 5-Series: 58, low, very small sample size
1998 5-Series: 111, moderate, very 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:

2011 5-Series: 79, < 1
2008 528 / 550 / M5: 58, 8
2002 5-Series: 34, 11

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