It's the RMS that suffers from non use, as Zookie's post pointed out.

this came from an after sales trainer who is on this board...he said the seal fails and then the oil drips out from nonuse.
Zookie: where does it say the car must be driven for warranty to be valid? I think that explanation sucks.

Try getting a New Battery Under Warranty because it died for not being used for a extended period of time.... trust me same rule applies...

"lack of normal vehicle use" & "Parts that fail due to lack of required maintenance" is all over the Factory & CPO Warranty Booklet

From so far of what I read, the IMS failure just "happens" (yeah, my car got an engine from that before). No particular reason whether you baby it or flog it every time.
I guess just drive the hell out of it till it blows up......

If the car had missfire codes then it has nothing to do with the IMS, that means it has scored cylinder walls due to failing rings. About as common as IMS on 997 motors

Still haven't gotten a complete answer yet due to my technician being on holidays last week, but they did pull the head to look at the cylinder walls...

There`s been lots written on this in Excellence and use hasn`t been mentioned. Extremely high rates of RMS and IMS failure due to poor design has. I`m sure it`s not mentioned in the warranty so I don`t believe they could get away with not replacing it on this basis. Another easy court win. It`s absurd to expect many of these cars to not to have low mileage. They`re toys for ---- sake!
