Thanks for putting a good word in, Chrissy.
We've updated the results for the Focus to include owner experiences through December 31, 2009. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2009: 22, better than average
2008: 64, about average
2007: 84, about average
2006: 60, about average
2005: 41, better than average
2003: 126, worse than average
2002: 128, about average
2001: 95, about average
2000: 85, better than average
We had sufficient sample sizes for the 2003, 2005, and 2007. The other results are asterisked and only visible to members on the site itself.
A big thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May and August. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and fully cover all model years.
