I have seen you post here and other car forums but I haven't signed up yet so I'm curious what else you have been using the data for. I don't see any ads or anything on your site.
I've been using the data for nothing other than posting results to the site and to forums like this one.

There are Google as on the site, though only on pages that provide information. You won't find them on survey pages.

We've updated the results for the Focus to include owner experiences through June 30, 2010.

Other sources of car reliability information won't cover the more recent months until the summer or even fall of next year.

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

2009: 19, better than average

2008: 57, about average

2007: 70, about average

2006: 71, about average

2005: 58, about average

2004: 50, better than average, very small sample size

2003: 96, about average

2002: 93, about average

2001: 117, about average, one response short of the minimum for a full result

2000: 125, about average

Now very consistent from year to year, because more participants and more data per car.

Thank you, once again, to everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in November and February. With more participants, we could provide more precise information and fully cover all model years.

In a few days we'll start previewing the next set of results to participants. The preview results will be updated as responses come in.

As always, the more owners participate, the better the information we can provide to everyone.

Starting this month we have a new question to measure, as objectively as possible, the severity of a problem. Many people have been asking for reliability stats that weight problems by how severe they are, and once we have enough responses with the revised survey we'll start providing this.

Also this month: updated reliability stats.

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.
