That is incorrect, despite what the people selling the retrofits will tell you. The likelihood of dual row failure is about the same as any other car. There is a reason the class action lawsuit did not include MY's with the dual row IMS. The lawsuit even cited estimated failure rates, with a dual row failure rate of 1% and a single row failure rate of 8%.

Lots of information on this, and people should make up their own mind, and do what they feel is necessary for their own peace of mind. But the dual row has no where near the same risk of failure as the "resigned" single row IMS.
