Good Starter, Great Price, Perfect Fit

Worked great in my 2000 S10 4cly. pickup. A bit of a job to install but works great. Be cautious not to over tighten the battery cable terminal nut.

Decent starter

The cost and time it took to replace were low. It got the vehicle back on the street without a lot of hassle

                              Good question, frstalara! This part carries a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.
