Not true, there have been failures in under 20,000 miles of the stock system.

Filler caps, pumps leaking, cracked filler necks, leaky release valves can happen overnight, with little to no warning.

At this point I know nearly 20 people with a fire related problem from winshield washer kits, yet people still defend them. I'm not sure where you got your statistics but I can assure you the filler neck and cap are not the only areas that cause these problems.
