It did not happen to me, but a friend of minie went through 7 Auto zone alternators before he went to the dealer. I went to Start smart and it has been OK so far. I had more trouble with the bolts falling. Good luck!! DominicSE R Madness said:This is going to be the 2nd autozone alt I will be returning.. what is with these Reman alts??
Yeah NAPA is a good place to get parts from, even though I work at PEP BOYS and can get discounts. I dont trust there reman stuff, bad experiences with them such as my starter.BigB said:for reman type stuff i usually only trust NAPA. the other thing to look as buying the parts to rebuild them yourself.
Nissan sells Reman alternators too, but they should be alot better then the advance/auto zone crap. They are about 225 from nissan (courtesy).SE R Madness said:how much is a factory nissan alt? $500??
