My understanding is that the Tips are more susceptible to IMS failure only because they tend to be driven at lower RPMs more often than the manual gearboxes.

There is a correlation between lugging the engine and IMS failures. Slushboxes just shift at lower RPMs in normal daily operations than drivers that don't like to drive their cars below 3000 RPMs.
