It's science.

I'm at 42k? It's still my first clutch. Ford has made improvements to it already in the later 2012 and 2013 models. I think the biggest issue with them is when your service guys say your transmission problems are "normal." Most people that have had the issues addressed are happy with the results. So avoiding early models should leave you in the clear.
