1 Scope
This Standard specifies the test conditions, test steps, test data processing and
test report for reliability running test of motor vehicles.
This Standard is applicable to various vehicles driving on the road. Other types
of vehicles refer to this Standard for implementation.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1 vehicle reliability
the ability of the vehicle to complete the specified functions within the specified
conditions and within the specified time
3.2 customer usage correlation
reproduce the use load of the target user in the test field or test bench
3.3 general reliability running test
the reliability test carried out in accordance with certain specifications on the
corresponding conditions (such as high-cold areas, plateau areas, high-
temperature dry-heat, high-temperature, humid and hot areas).
4.2 Test vehicle
4.2.1 The vehicle shall meet the technical conditions specified by the
4.2.2 The speedometer and odometer installed on the vehicle shall be
inspected and corrected in accordance with the method determined by GB/T
4.2.3 Number of vehicles: Not less than 3 for passenger vehicles; for
commercial vehicles, it is determined by the manufacturer; for electric vehicles,
it is determined by the manufacturer.
4.2.4 Model configuration: It is advisable to choose a representative model
4.3 Test load
Determine the test load according to the user's association or the
manufacturer's design requirements. Load and unload according to the method
determined by GB/T 12534.
5 Test steps
5.1 Vehicle parameter measurement and adjustment
5.1.1 Vehicle mass parameter measurement
Carry out vehicle mass parameter measurement according to the method
determined by GB/T 12674.
5.1.2 Measurement and adjustment of vehicle wheel alignment
Measure and adjust wheel alignment parameters in accordance with the
manufacturer’s wheel alignment specifications.
5.1.3 Vehicle passability parameter measurement
The passability parameters such as approach angle, departure angle,
longitudinal pass angle and minimum ground clearance are measured
according to the methods determined by GB/T 12673.
5.1.4 Key moment measurement and adjustment
According to product instruction manual or design specification requirements,
measure and adjust the torque of the fasteners of the key parts. After confirming
the fastener torque, the position of the fastener shall be marked.
5.2 Vehicle performance test
Before and after the reliability running test, it is advisable to carry out the
evaluation of the power performance, economy, braking performance, emission,
noise, comfort, handling stability and sealing of the whole vehicle, used to
evaluate the attenuation degree of vehicle performance. The test conditions
and test methods of the performance test before and after the reliability running
test shall be consistent. Before performance evaluation, the test vehicle can be
run-in according to the manufacturer's regulations.
5.3 Reliability running test
5.3.1 General reliability running test Test mileage allocation
According to user surveys or vehicle-mounted record data, determine the
distribution ratio of mileage of test vehicles on urban roads, expressways,
general highways, mountain roads, and non-paved roads (see Annex A). Driving operation Select the gear according to the design conditions during the test.
Under the premise of ensuring safety, the vehicle shall be driven at the design
speed. Every 100km, there are at least two accelerations from a standstill at
full throttle. Accumulated reverse gear driving is not less than 200m. Brake at
least 2 times. The rate of change of vehicle speed before and after braking shall
not be less than 30%. When driving on mountain roads, make at least one uphill stop and
start every 100km. Use the service brake to stop on a ramp of not less than 6%.
Transmission is in neutral. Use the parking brake to stop. Then proceed to the
ramp start as normal. The proportion of night mileage shall be no less than 10% of the total
mileage of the test.
5.3.2 Accelerated reliability running test Test mileage allocation
According to user association (see Annex B) or testing ground specifications,
5.6.2 Pickup record
When picking up the vehicle, record the vehicle information and fill in the failure
record form (see Table D.1).
5.6.3 Driving record
During the test, the driving information of the vehicle shall be recorded and the
driving record form shall be filled in (see Table D.2).
5.6.4 Failure record
During the test, after a failure occurs, the vehicle failure, repair and
maintenance records shall be filled in. The information recorded includes:
- Assembly name: The upper-level assembly to which the faulty component
- Failure mileage: The difference BETWEEN the odometer reading when the
failure is found AND the odometer reading when sampling is multiplied by
the odometer correction coefficient.
NOTE: The odometer reading at the time of sampling refers to the odometer reading of
the vehicle at the time of sampling. If the sample is sent to the manufacturer, it is the
odometer reading of the vehicle when the tester receives the sample.
- Failure description: Use simple and clear language to describe the failure
phenomenon and the working conditions when the failure occurs. Write
specific values for all possible quantitative descriptions. When necessary,
a schematic diagram or a photo shall be drawn, and the shape and size
of the failure location shall be marked;
- Analysis of failure cause: Determine the cause of the failure through
observation and analysis of the failure phenomenon, size measurement.
Causes of failure include vehicle factors and human factors. Vehicle
factors can be further divided into design issues, quality issues, and
production issues;
- Failure consequences: Parking, performance degradation, traffic accidents;
- Treatment measures: Specific fault repair methods;
- Failure parking time: Including waiting time, diagnosis time, fault repair time,
debugging time.
5.6.5 Maintenance and repair record
During the test, when the vehicle is being maintained and repaired, the vehicle
information and the maintenance and repair record form shall be filled in (see
Table D.3).
5.6.6 Replacement record
If the vehicle needs to replace parts or update software due to repair,
maintenance or other reasons, the part number or software version number
shall be clearly indicated in the running record.

abnormal phenomena of the internal structure of each assembly, the main
assembly (such as body, vehicle energy, engine/drive motor, clutch,
transmission, drive axle, steering gear) shall be partially or completely
disassembled and recorded in accordance with the provisions of the
corresponding test procedures.
NOTE: On-board energy refers to the combination of inverters and energy ......
