"Certain vehicle components may have premature wear" - well that just makes you think of the starter and flywheel.

But consider this: here in the crematoria known as Houston it gets powerful hot and you're sitting in traffic with the car roasting and it shuts off for a small amount of time.

Then it restarts numerous times while you get to where you are going.. Your engine hasn't seen an oil change in 9500 miles and that super heated cylinder head with cam and actuators just sizzles the oil on top of the engine while it is stopped and there's no oil flow to those components.

Then it restarts.

Yeah, I could see the cam and lifters being one of the "vehicle components" having some premature wear....
