So Far So Good

RepairPal has been live for 6 full days now and we've had a terrific response from the press and our many users. We've collected a ton of useful feedback from you and ask that you keep it coming because it's guiding where we're focusing our efforts. In the coming days, we’ll be posting responses to some of the most common feedback as well as a list of frequently asked questions, so please register so we can keep you in the loop!

Many folks are wondering why we don't have data for their specific model and year. It's really simple - we cover over 500 models and built as many as we could by launch date, with the most popular being built first. Building a specific model takes a considerable effort - we've got to acquire and structure all the labor and parts data, then get one of our technicians (who knows that brand really well) to spend several hours to put all the pieces together. Thanks to the early users of our feedback system, we know there are many Oldsmobile Aurora owners wanting to use our service. Use our feedback links to let us know if you have a model that's not included and we'll try to build it. In some cases we don't have a specific year built yet, often a 2007 or 2008, and this is because we are waiting for the necessary data to become available. As soon as we get it, we'll build 'em.

Thanks to our many visitors for making our launch a successful and informative one. We're committed to making RepairPal the absolute best resource for car ownership on the web and can only do it with your help. Keep the great feedback coming.
