VANOS failures (not solenoid) would most probably result in poor lubrication due to overextending the oil drain interval usually combined with the use of fuel and/or oil additives. If there is sufficient lubrication there is absolutely no reason for the VANOS to fail (save for manufacturing defects which are rare). VANOS is purely mechanical.
