    HMMMMMM, this was supposed to have been fixed in 2014, I see they have changed the master cylinder and clutch hub part numbers again

    From the article it appears the previous fix may not have been a complete fix.

    No worries the 2017's will correct all the previous concerns. Redesigns of major systems tend to be the way of the MOCO in trying to keep market share alive.

    Yep, my concern is the master cylinder for said clutch is not a new idea, they have been round a long time, my guess is off shore manufacturing is to blame here JMO
