      Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

      Exact fit for a 2002 Chevy Impala 3.4L. Used a coupon code and the item ended up being very affordable. The lifetime warranty is always a plus. Mine ended up failing after about 18 months, but I attribute it to a sensor that was leaking oil potentially getting inside the starter. Exchanging the broken starter for a new one at the store was a breeze. Wouldn't hesitate ordering this from advance auto parts.

        Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

        The starter was light, easy to handle and fit perfectly but it was difficult to install because of the exhaust pipe blocking the wires. There are some YouTube videos that help. The starter itself works great.

          Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

          The starter seems well made. I was a little disappointed that it was missing the nuts and washers to the solenoid. Price was a little high compared to the competition. If it wasn't for the online discount I would have purchased it somewhere else. Overall, I am happy with my purchase though.

              Needed new starter when the OEM failed after 11 years. This starter looks brand new even though it is remanufactured. Fit perfect. Works great. Probably have about 100 starts on it so far.

              The starter was very easy to install with basic tools and no specialty tools. Installed new started and my van started right up, will definately buy again if I need one for another one of my vehicles.

                My 2003 Buick Rendezvous decided to stop working on me. Replaced the starter. It is a little heavy (which I think is common anyway), but it was a perfect fit and runs like new so far. I would give it a higher rating, but it has only been 4 days. Hopefully, I will not need to rely on the warranty.
