I may be wrong but I seem to remember these stats  were translated from a Japanese  publication and only concerned  home market machines

It was indeed a Japanese translation that I found my info on.

Anyone care to share the full story/details please go ahead!   :187:

I think the first that I heard of this issue was in spring 2015, someone posted on this site about a broken shaft.

Then at the end of the year we started hearing of the recall:
