We are 103,000+ car owners sharing real-world car information.Join Us
We started TrueDelta because other sources of car reliability information were only providing dot ratings. Dots are vague. From them, you can tell if a car is better or worse than average. But how much better or worse? And what's the average?
Here you'll learn how often cars require a repair, so you can tell how good the good ones are, how bad the bad ones are, and how much they really differ.
Plus much more--including the description of every reported repair. Maybe your car is having a problem. Have others reported the same problem?
There's more. But how much do you want to read?
For about 600 model-model year combinations, enough car owners participated for us to provide reasonably precise reliability stats. For another 800, we had at least ten owners participate.
To check whether we have reliability stats for the cars you're interested in, go here.
Even if a model isn't listed we could have repair reports, real-world fuel economy, or owner reviews for it. Plus specs and features for nearly all car, minivan, crossover, and SUV model offered in North America.
Thank you for having it all in one tidy package. The most robust, simple to navigate, easy on the eye comprehensive auto guide EVER! KUDOS to your designers and web people!

This is the most easily understood car comparison site EVER for a non-gearhead. I've had my eye on a Honda Fit and now I can rest assured: its history and consumer experiences support a purchase 100%. THANK YOU!

I found your site extremely helpful- in fact it was the site I found on my phone internet when the Passat left me stranded 80 miles from anything in any direction on x mas weekend 2 years ago. Your site helped me to determine I likely had a bad fuel pump based on mileage from other entries.

For 14 years we gave free memberships to everyone who agreed to help with the Car Reliability Survey.
Providing car reliability information worth having required a ton of work. Unlike with the typical internet survey, every single response was thoroughly reviewed. Unfortunately, ad revenues kept declining, to the point that they could no longer support such an effort.
A subscription costs as little as $4.95. Your support will enable the site to continue.
Your choice: $4.95 for a week, $9.95 for 90 days, or $24.95 for a full year.
All are non-recurring because, well, people forget and then too often pay for something they're not using. (When that happened to us we didn't like it.)
