mkaresh We've updated our reliability stats for the Focus to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. Plus we've added reliability trends graphs. These indicate how a model's reliability has changed as it has aged, and how different model years performed when the same age.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 Focus: 34, moderate
2013 Focus: 32, moderate
2013 Focus ST: 43, moderate
2012 Focus: 39, moderate
2010 Focus: 32, low
2009 Focus: 81, high, small sample size
2008 Focus: 28, low
2007 Focus: 59, moderate
2006 Focus: 60, moderate, small sample size
2005 Focus: 91, moderate, small sample size
2004 Focus: 156, high, very small sample size
2003 Focus: 100, moderate
2002 Focus: 132, high, small sample size
2001 Focus: 117, moderate, very small sample size
2000 Focus: 54, low, very small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2014 Focus: 60, < 1
2013 Focus: 77, < 1
2013 Focus ST: 60, < 1
2012 Focus: 68, < 1
2007 Focus: 67, 4

We'll have further updates in May and in August. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

mkaresh Sorry for the delay, I just saw your question.

We've always excluded problems fixed through free software updates. If MFT repairs were included, the repair frequencies for the 2012 and up would be considerably higher.

Additional participants always helpful (especially if you see "small sample size" next to the year, or no stat at all).

Although this may have been discussed before, can someone please explain what exactly constitutes as a "repair". I remember reading some time ago that when a customer brought in their car because of "MYFord Touch" issues, then that constituted as a repair. Is that true?

I think the stat for the 2001 is only as low as it is because of the small sample size. We definitely need more owners involved for that year.

For people not yet participating, we'd love to include your cars in these stats.

VAfromMN And then there is my '04 SVTF! As of today, 322,200 miles and it has been very reliable. I had to put in a used transmission at 290,xxx miles due to a bad input shaft bearing, but that has been the only major repair. Other than wear items, nothing! 120-130 compression across the board and literally no oil use between 5/6k changes.
