        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.

              Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

              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.
