The reality is they can go down at anytime if they have a part failure. Another good reason why they sent two rovers instead of one.

They should start mass producing cheap rovers like this and just scatter then to the wind on Mars and the Moon. We should also make it possible for any manned missions to take over those assets to help with their mission(whenever that happens) Use the rovers to spot some geologically interesting spots and then send the Geologist team over to check it out.
