Some are pessimistic enough to have replacement cassette in trunk, but I haven't done that. In some cases it does not fail ever, sometimes it causes misfire or idling problems before it finally fails and sometimes it just snaps without any prior indication. Don't worry, if it goes, it goes. Cost is about $200, I've been told. It is easy to replace, so If you want to be sure, keep one in trunk with required tool (torx). It takes couple of minutes to replace. Dealer may suggest replacing cabling harness as well, but that is quite often not necessary. BR:Z
