Sounds like a heat issue.
Determine the manufacture of the HDD and run the Manufactures Diagnostic test. You can find the programs on the Manufactures web site. There is a list of the websites found here

"We installed these computers over about 200 miles of the turnpike."
Way too little info to give a truly accurate suggestion.
How & WHERE were they installed ?
In buildings or outside ?
Testing things as you did isn't neccessarily going to reproduce the problem.
[One of the reasons I think the Myth Busters are a couple of clowns]
You have to keep in mind that unless the computers are in temperature controlled buildings that they are going to bake during the day & cool off at night.
They are going to be subjected to the distinct possibility of moisture in the form of condensation due to changing temps.
Putting one in something & getting it hot for a short period of time simply is not the same conditions.
Of course there is always the probability that if you buy 200 identical hard drives there are going to be X amount of premature failures.
[A certain percentage of hard drives are going to fail prematurely]
