Ford C Max clutch issues?

I have a 63 plate Ford C Max 1.0 (125ps) Ecoboost bought new in February 2014. It runs well and I'm very happy with it. But I recall a few mentions in your Daily Telegraph column about potential concerns over clutch failures or problems with this and the similar Focus. What is your latest thinking on this subject please?

Very common on Focus and C-Max with the 1.0 Ecoboost. Might be that drivers slip the clutch more.

Neat styling. More practical than a Focus. Fine blend of ride comfort, handling and driver enjoyment. 1.6 TDCi emits 119g/km. High quality interior.
