Default CSC failure

So I have read a lot of info related to the CSC failure and the fix when it happens and it sounds like sooner or later it will. My question is what I have read members having these they have been on some of the older zs. I have a 2016, is Nissan still fd up with this design and am I just another awaiting victim or have they Fixed this crappy design?

In interim until you can replace CSC (and MC), you can extend life by keeping fluid clean. I got 75K+ miles on my 2010 40th AE, and now am at 25K on my 2016 Nismo w/o issues. Since I track it, I'm flushing brakes & clutch typ twice/yr, using Motul RBF600. Seems to help.
