We've updated the results for the Focus to include owner experiences through March 31, 2011.

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

2009: 73

2008: 77

2007: 52

2006: 54

2005: 96

2004: 77, small sample size

2003: 102

2002: 132

2001: 91

2000: 103

The 2006 and 2001 are better than average, the others are about average. Sample izes are near the minimum in all cases, which likely explains much of the variation from year to year.

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.

We're especially interested in providing some quick results for the new 2012. 18 cars signed up so far, a very fast start.

To see how competitors compare, and to sign up to help improve this information:
