The Long-Term Quality Index is a study designed to give used car buyers accurate reliability information that will be available for free, forever.

At this time we have over a million unique data samples from all over the United States.

So sit back. Click away. Find out about how your model compares to the industry averages (going all the way back to 1996!), and don't be afraid to ask us questions directly here. We look forward to doing our own part in helping all of you change the economics of long-term car ownership.
