If you were trying to find out what age people pass away at, would you survey every single person who is still alive? No, that's another survey.
I understand, but you were complaining about the number of responses, and I was providing an explanation for that. Your poll won't give you any sense of the failure rate at any given mileage.

As for polling dead people, I think you are likely to get even lower response rates.
