Colorado / Canyon reliability - better info (please sign up)

    I wanted more up-to-date vehicle 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 vehicles closely as they age.

    50 Colorado and Canyon owners are already signed up to participate. A start, but more are needed to provide full results for all years. So I'm grateful that this forum has given me permission to post this thread.

    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 Colorado and Canyon, for free.

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

    The 2005 model year is closest to gettinig started--now only seven owners short of the minimum--and others aren't far behind.

    Help get your year included:

    The 2005 is now only four short, and the 2004 and 2006 are also close.

    Updated results for most other GM trucks and SUVs later this month. The Colorado and Canyon aren't yet in the survey, but the 2005 is very close.

    The 2004 and 2005 are both close.

    The 2005 is now only two trucks short of the minimum needed to include it, and the 2004 and 2006 are only 5-6 owners short.

    Let's get these included!

    Got the 2005 included, hopefully we'll start having stats for it in a few months. The 2004 and 2006 are each only 4-5 short of the minimum. Let's also get these included!

    It looks like we'll need a few more responses for the 2005 to provide a reliability stat for it. Hopefully with the February update.
