Placeholder for list of SLU failures reported on The370Z.com.

Edit: 2012-12-12:
Wow! List is up to 112 people with SLU failures on this site alone. BBCode does not have a good way to display the data, so it will be a while before I can post the data in tabular form. Here's a link to the SS I'm using to collect the data:
Link to OpenOffice spreadsheet of SLU failures

I need all the help I can get verifying the data I already have and finding new cases of SLU failure.

Edit:2012-12-12:
I finally finished scanning the threads listed in the first post above. 117 112* reported SLU failures!
Use the link above to download the spreadsheet.
* Found some duplicates

Edit 2012-12-16:
Couldn't figure out a good way to display the table with BBCode. You can see the data in tabular form at SLU Failure List

Notes section from SS:
I have no way to verify these reported failures.
The people who have disabled their SLUs skew the numbers
I have only searched the topics listed in my Links to posts about Steering Wheel Lock topic
Some of these may not actually be a SLU failure. I caught a few where the reporter later posted that the problem turned out not to be the SLU.
I may have misinterpreted some reports. If you see any errors, please let me know.
