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 report on new cars like the FR-S sooner then track them closely as they age.
We might have an initial result for these cars as soon as November. So far 22 owners are signed up. To publicly release a result, we need at least 25 responses. One of our members suggested that people here might be interested.
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 their own model, for free. I'll share results for the FR-S in this thread after each update.
For the details, and to sign up to help out:
