Anyhow, I am also very pleased with my 130K EX V8 Borrego. I drove 25K in 2 years, and 50% if not more of that mileage comes from towing a 6,000 pound travel trailer across the country. In spite of some preventive maintenance and minor repairs I had to make, total cost of ownership (depreciation + maintenance + insurance + gas) is best in class for this type of vehicle.
Hi anicora,

That sounds about right. Here is the breakdown for our replacing the auxiliary fan (9/6/17):

$265.91 - cooling fan
$36.69 - fan shroud
$188.00 - labor

$508.76 - total cost

We have 120,000 miles on our Borg. I have 4.5 years to retirement. At that point, we hope to travel extensively with a travel trailer and/or small motorhome. My goal is to properly maintain and use The Borg until then. I am guessing we will have about 175,000 miles on it by then. We have been very pleased with The Borg in terms of the price point (used), the quality, and the capability.

Take care,

Dean
