    Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

    I ordered this over the phone with the 1-800 number. I told the Rep that people are getting the starter for a stick shift and I have an automatic. He told me that it stated Standard and that means Automatic. I did not want to argue. When I picked it up at the store that had it they told me the starter was for a standard, and that means stick shift. Caution if you are ordering be alerted that you may not be getting the correct starter. The automatic starter has 3 equal ears to bold it on. The Stick starter has 1 ear that is longer to bold on. Advance Auto needs to improve the listings. This problem seems to keep happening.

      Good overall part. Understand that changing into a automatic transmission one should had been honored with the same price I payd for the wrong one!

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      The starter would probably have been fine, although it was bought for an Automatic Trans car and does not fit those with stick shifts. The online description under application does state remanufactured, standard and that's it. The average person would not know that meant for standard transmissions only. My dissapointment is thedescription is vague and that I got 20% discount online when purchasing it, which was great, but when I had to stop in the middle of the installation and run to the store to replace it because it was the wrong one, They had no problem exchanging it for the correct one, but I lost the 20% discount, which was the reason for purchasing it online in the first place. The most they could give was 10%. Unfortunatly I had to replace the starter a second time that day, because the one I got from the store ws defective. Third time was the charm, up and running now.
