Armada and QX56 reliability - better info

I wanted more up-to-date auto reliability information that included actual repair rates. So in late 2005 I started getting people together to make this possible. TrueDelta now reports absolute repair rates that make the differences between cars much clearer. Results are updated four times a year, so it's possible to track cars closely as they age.

So far 35 Armada and 18 QX56 owners have signed up. A start, but more are needed to include these models in the survey.

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, at the end of each quarter.

To encourage participation, participants receive full access to all results, not just those for the Armada and QX56, free of charge.

For the details, and to sign up to help out:

Thanks, guys.

The 2004, 2005, and 2006 are now all about halfway to the minimum sample size.

Results recently posted for nearly 300 other models.

We've also introduced two new 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.

I'd like to have this information on the Armada--just a matter of getting enough owners involved.

Very sorry it has taken so long to get enough Armada owners involved. We have far more for the Murano.

Overall, 72% of the cars registered are included in the main survey.

Notice you live in Arkansas. My wife's from Hardy.

Recently enhanced the related repair history survey so that it can (optionally) be used as a personal car maintenance record.

Close to getting started with the 2004 and 2005. Help get your year included:
