I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that made the differences between cars clearer. So a few years ago I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age.

We've had great participation by the owners of many Ford models, so we have pretty good coverage for these. More would always be better, of course!

Participants simply report repairs the month after they occur on a one-page survey. When there are no repairs, they simply report an approximate odometer reading four times a year, following the end of each quarter.

To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for Fords, for free. I'll share some results for Fords in this thread after each update.

I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that made the differences between cars clearer. So a few years ago I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now updates actual repair frequencies, not just dots, four times a year, to track cars closely as they age.

We've had great participation by the owners of many Ford models, so we have pretty good coverage for these. More would always be better, of course!

Participants simply report repairs the month after they occur on a one-page survey. When there are no repairs, they simply report an approximate odometer reading four times a year, following the end of each quarter.

To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for Fords, for free. I'll share some results for Fords in this thread after each update.

Michael, I am so happy you're keeping up this database. It's still mu go to for good data.
