rainbird solenoid failure

Has anyone else experienced solenoid failure from the Rainbird anitsiphon valves in like a 3 year lifespan? I called a rep and they said this is normal... I call bs.. I have had deformed, rusty old solenoids dating back 10 plus years still working as ugly as they are.. I am a little torn at buying rainbird anymore for that reason.

If you forever swore off a manufacturer because of a problem with a head or valve or controller, there would soon be no one left to buy from.
