How tough is it to make a waterpump that lasts?

If this keeps up, I will have a new truck by the time all these recalls are finished, now on with the Sirus/XM radios......

Bit me in the butt! Water pump shaft broke and shredded the serp belt. Left me stranded in a snow storm at the local ski hill 30 Miles from town. Wrecker didn’t arrive until 11pm. Only the 2nd time in 15 years of CTD ownership I needed a tow (other time was the lift pump in my 2003). In retrospect my batteries were having a hard time all week and I got a low coolant warning the other day. I’m guessing it was leaking out the shaft seal onto the belt and the belt was slipping on the alternator. Should have seen the signs. Dealership replaced pump (and belt) under warranty with the old design as the new ones aren’t out yet. So we’ll be doing this again.
