no mechanic for millions of miles

That is the trouble with rovers. Total cost for the MSL was $2.5b.

I could put a dozen colonists on mars for $2.5b and we get a lot more out of it.*

If this electrical problem ends MSL we've lost that money. A dozen colonists could fix a dozen rovers in a day while doing more science even without them.

*Mars One lander pending.
