The Velocitor very well may have a lot less complaints on your list, but if there are fewer of them out there that makes complete sense. The rate of people complaining could very well,be the exact same.
I agree, so here you go. Powertrain complaints per 1,000 vehicles sold.

Elantra: 8 / 351,855 * 1000 = 0.02
Veloster: 3 / 34,602 * 1000 = 0.09
Cruze: 39 / 411,041 * 1000 = 0.09
Focus: 56 / 322,774 * 1000 = 0.17

The Focus is nearly double the Cruze and Veloster and 8-9 times higher than Elantra.

That's not what I said. If you ever took a statistics class you'd know what I was getting at.
