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 had excellent participation by Mazda owners, and I'd like to provide precise reliability stats for the Mazda2 as soon as possible. Just a matter of getting enough owners involved.

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 Mazda2, for free.

We have an updated reliability stat for the Mazda2 based on owner experiences through December 31, 2012.

With a reported repair frequency of 5 repair trips per 100 vehicles per year, the Mazda2 has rarely required repairs so far.

We'll have further updates in February and May. We'd love to provide more precise stats and cover more model years--just a matter of getting more owners involved.
