We've updated the results for the Focus to include owner experiences through December 31, 2010. Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the months since last April until the summer or even fall of this year.
Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:
2004: 74, small sample size
2000: 140, small sample size
All are about average.
Thank you, once again, 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.
