The only issue I've had with mine (and seen with others) is the clutch return spring breaks on them. not a big deal, just means the pedal may not come all the way back out. only issue with it is when it's cold it rests on the cruise shutoff switch. just have to lift the pedal with your foot to set the cruise.
mine broke at 13k. the 2nd spring has lasted a bit longer now =)
