    Read quite a few reviews from others who coincidentally had Toyota Camrys.

    The mechanic had no problem installing this AND we got $20 back when we returned the old unit to Advance Auto Parts.

    Gave this FOUR stars because we only just instlled the starter and will wait to see if it will last or not.

    My wife told me that she read that the starter had a lifetime warranty, she was wrong. I returned the the old starter to get credit for the cord charge clerk would not let me keep the box that the new starter came in. The clerk told me it had a 10 year limit warranty. He said if the starter housing breaks it's not cover at anytime. I'm still waiting for my $25. credit on my next purchase or maybe my school teacher wife misunderstood that part of the advertisement also. It's to early to make any kind of judgement on the starter since I have only used the car a few times after starter was installed. Everything looks and sounds good so far.

        Easy to install watched video on you tube. If you lean the battery forward and tie off you can do the job without disconnecting the battery and having to reprogram the computer. Took 35 minutes to do this is the second one I've done saved $300+ from having garage do the job!

            Purchased online with coupon and picked up at local store. Helpful advice from store personnel. After viewing YouTube video, I installed the alternator myself on my 2002 Toyota Camry LE 4 cylinder. No problems in the last two weeks.

            As per Advance auto Ben "A limited lifetime warranty means that the warranty is valid for only the original purchaser. Additionally, the warranty is limited in its liability, and will cover product defects, not wear and tear/accidents. The part will be replaced once in a lifetime."
            I gave it 4 stars because I don't know how durable it is. Got 5 years from last starter and cost twice as much with no warranty.

                      I brought the start motor through online store and pick it up at the store. The part is working fine to me 2002 toyota camry. The price is much cheaper than than What the masochism shop offer me.
                      Just a comment on the reply below mine, most shops charge "by the book", which means they charge a fixed number of hours regardless of how long the repair actually takes. "The book" is a guideline on how long even a trained monkey should be able to do the repair. I was quoted 2.3 hours of labor for replacing the radiator in my car, it took me 50 minutes to replace
