An experienced driver might not recognize it when the slipping is more subtle. Hard to say if you weren't driving the Jeep all that time. The hydraulic issue is more insideous. Driver error is more overt. Two different routes to the same result. Or even a third, which could be a combo of both. I'll bet the guy whose Jeep blew apart says he is a pretty good driver. And he might just be. His was what triggered the first recall.Precisely my point. It would take some extreme slipping for am extended period to reach 1100 degrees. As experienced drivers, you recognized the issue before it became more serious. Even inexperienced drivers though would be unable to mistake the level of slippage (and smoke and smell) necessary to generate the full 1100 degree failure point
The current fix covers both scenarios nicely.
