mkaresh Posted July 15, 2007 Share Posted July 15, 2007 In late 2005 I started conducting reliability research. I'm reporting absolute stats like "trips to the shop" that will make the differences between cars much clearer. I'll also be updating results four times a year, so there will be information on new models sooner. Participants 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. I start collecting data on a model year when 25 owners are signed up. I'm nearly halfway there with the 2005 Pathfinder, and hope to get there before much longer for all recent model years. I haven't done much to get the word out to Pathfinder owners till now. But just checked and 85 are already enrolled, so there's clearly some interest. To encourage participation, panel members will receive full access to the results free of charge.
