I did not ask (stupidly), but I would not be surprised if the gearbox might of leaked fluid.
There have been revisions to the components, but there has not been any major mechanical changes from 2012 to 2013 as far as been made known. So technically the 2013 should be no more reliable than the 2012 that was working properly.
