We've updated the results for the Focus to include owner experiences through March 31, 2010. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2009: 22, better than average
2008: 52, about average
2007: 93, worse than average
2006: 65, about average
2005: 58, about average
2004: 72, about average, very small sample size
2003: 112, about average
2002: 90, about average, small sample
2001: 148, worse than average, small sample
2000: 144, about average, small sample
More consistent from year to year than in the past, because more participants and more data per car.
A big thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in August and November. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and fully cover all model years.
