Thanks to the help of this forum's members, the latest results include many model years of the Ford Focus. Sample sizes are small in all cases, though, so these results provide only a rough indicator of repair rates.

In terms of successful repair trips per 100 vehicles per year:

2000: 120, about average

2001: 110, about average

2002: 183, worse than average, probably inaccurate given results for other years

2003: 62, better than average

2005: 39, better than average, seems a bit too good to be accurate, given results for other model years; but larger sample size than other years, so maybe not

2006: 100, worse than average, seems inaccurate given results for 2005 and 2007

2007: 47, average

2008: 48, average

With additional participants, we could provide precise results for all model years.
