I wanted more up-to-date car reliability information that included actual repair rates. So in late 2005 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 been reporting reliability stats for most of the Galant's competitors for some time. I'd like to do the same for the Galant--just a matter of getting enough owners involved. Currently the 2002 is about 2/3 of the way to the minimum, and the 2001 and 2003 are about half way.

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 Galant, for free. I'll share results for the Galant in this thread after each update.

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

Do you usually get a personal response from a spammer?

Many forums are actively helping me with this survey, and I post the results to them as I have them. I'd love to share such results with the people here, just need to have them first.

Now 117 Galant owners signed up, and the 2002 is only five short of the minimum needed to get started. a few other years are over halfway.

Now 140. No year is there, but the 2001, 2002, and 2003 are all close.
