Many cars have a U-shaped curve. Some initial problems, followed by few problems until after the warranty ends.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Equinox to include owner experiences through September 30, 2013.

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

2013 Equinox: 19, low
2012 Equinox: 8, low
2011 Equinox: 40, moderate
2010 Equinox: 60, moderate
2008 Equinox: 39, low, very small sample size
2007 Equinox: 36, low, very small sample size
2006 Equinox: 102, high, small sample size
2005 Equinox: 59, low, very small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2012 Equinox: 96, 2
2011 Equinox: 77, 4
2010 Equinox: 54, 2

We'll have further updates in February and in May. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

Much of the difference between the 2012 and 2013 could be sampling error. The latter is also low, as indicated above. Both years seem much better than the earlier ones, at least so far.

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.

So far 128 Equinox, Torrent, and Terrain owners have signed up. A good start, but more are needed to provide results for all model years.

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 M3, for free.

Karesh!

Long-time TTACer, nice to see you, good sir.

I still write up our reliability stats for TTAC, but for over a year have been posting car reviews only on TrueDelta.

No chance these stats could be split between the 4 cylinder and the V6?

New stuff this time. We've updated our reliability stats for the Equinox to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. Plus we've added reliability trends graphs. These indicate how a model's reliability has changed as it has aged, and how different model years performed when the same age.

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

2014 Equinox: 0, low
2013 Equinox: 22, low
2012 Equinox: 23, low
2011 Equinox: 38, moderate
2010 Equinox: 77, high
2008 Equinox: 0, low, very small sample size
2006 Equinox: 22, low, very small sample size
2005 Equinox: 47, low, very small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2013 Equinox: 83, 2
2012 Equinox: 81, < 1
2011 Equinox: 75, 2
2010 Equinox: 64, < 1

We'll have further updates in May and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

The new graph indicates continuous improvement from model year to model year.

2012 Equinox: 31, low
2011 Equinox: 49, moderate
2010 Equinox: 89, high
2008 Equinox: 10, low, very small sample size
2006 Equinox: 76, moderate, very small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:
