Well that makes you ignorant. (I also change my oil/filter at max 5k. Oil $60, genuine vw filter $24) I have seen statisics on vehicle collision causes and mechanical failure is minute. 25% of fatalities have alcohol involved. May or may not be the cause. 25% of fatalities are not wearing seat belts. Direct cause of death. Speed and fatigue are bs dodgy figures. I had these explained to me by the government statisticion that if the police investigators can't find anything else they just use this. On a corner = speed. Straight road = fatigue. It's a bit like the fire investigators just blame it on an electrical fault if they can't see anything else. I do like my cars to be checked for reliability purposes.
