The post by JFOJ is good reasoning. Well said. Thinking about it now I probably won't get the repair kit as it'll be many years until a new one wears out.

What's this deficiency you speak of? In that light, every other part on our cars have a "deficiency."
I'd say it's a deficiency for it to wear out by 70K miles. That was my experience unfortunately.
