2012: 44, moderate
2011: 43, moderate and much better than earlier
2008: 50, moderate, small sample size
2007: 51, moderate
2006: 88, high, very small sample size
2005: 76, moderate
2004: 102, high
2002: 132, high, very small sample size
2000: 94, moderate, very small sample size
Thank you, once again, to this forum and everyone who has been helping. We'll have further updates in May and August. With more owners involved, we could provide more precise information and cover all model years from 1998 on.

Back to the comment-Question. Several posts have different
numbers for 2002, with varied relibility comments.
Do each "group of Data" change from post to post or
is the Data changing because there is more input...?????
