Average Lifespan Of A Keurig?

A couple times in the past few months, she's been acting up.. And normally with alittle coaxing, she can be talked/cussed into one or two cups.. But she's now "growling" and getting pretty slow..
I've done the vinegar thing a few times to speed her up.. And a month or so ago, a diluted down version with CLR and she was revived to almost new again..
Any revival ideas?? Or just go fork out the $$$$ to replace the old girl....

(it's also the only way I get perfect caribou without driving all the way to the airport in Denver, conveniently the ONLY place within 700 miles.. And Caribou IS religion. )
I thank my hubby and FIL for turning me into a "coffee hore".. I used to be happy with whatever coffee was cheapest at Walfart run thru a $20 coffee pot.. Thanks to them, they created my addiction while they could enable their own and not has me laughin at them.. Hookers!

If you like expresso, we have a Nespresso machine! Oh my god, just like the real thing. Love that too.

I love it too, but for the tea and hot chocolate. I am not a coffee drinker. The boyfriend enjoys it though.

I ran some CLR thru her again and she's fast again.. But still "growling".. Idk.. I guess I'll keep babyin her along til she croaks.. 2years old doesn't seem like a very long life, but she does make quite a bit of coffee everyday..
We love expresso.. Not sure if I tell hubby about another "must have machine" or not.. Lol..

I don't generally drink coffee, but I'm starting to again. My roommate introduced me to her french press and I don't think I'll ever go back to drip coffee.
