Default Scion iQ reliability - better information

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.

Thanks to the help of people here, we've been provided stats on other Scions for some time, and would love to do the same for the iQ.

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 iQ, for free. Once we have them I'll share results for the iQ in this thread after each update.

For the details, and to sign up to help make this happen:

The 2012 is now halfway to the minimum. Getting there!

Now only four cars short of the minimum for the 2012 iQ.

We'll have an initial stat for the 2012 later this month. The sample size will be small--more participants would be very helpful.

We've updated our reliability stats for the iQ to include owner experiences through June 30, 2014.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2012 iQ: 20, low, small sample size

Next updates in November and in February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

We've updated our reliability stats for the iQ to include owner experiences through September 30, 2014.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2012 iQ: 13, low, small sample size

Additional participants would be very helpful. (I'd love to be able to drop the disclaimer and cover all model years.)

We've updated our reliability stats for the iQ to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2012 iQ: 10, low, small sample size
