I purchased this starter in the fall of 2013 and put it in my wife's 1999 Chev Monte Carlo. The on-line price was good and it worked. Now in June 2017 my wife calls me and says she is at the gas station and the car won't start, was only getting a click and battery was good. Bought and installed one of the same starters and car starts fine again. So I got 3 1/2 years out of it, if you are going to keep your car awhile you might want to spend a little more money and get a lifetime warranty.

Ordered online for in-store pick up...love that. The counter person tested my old starter to confirm it was bad. I asked to also test the new one...just in case...and he did that without question. The part fit perfect and worked great.

              We all make mistakes. Even a pro will make a rookie mistake.

              I haven't had to change a starter in eight years. So even though i saved time and money ordering for pick up my remanufactured starter, I lost time on installation. The guys at advance helped me recall the simple procedure of wire placement on the studs of my starter. ( I was attempting to put back wire(s) on the stud that is closest to the starter motor housing.)
              Because they they had the knowledge, a rookie mistake didn't keep me parked.

                  A:

                  Hi, glad to assist you. We will replace or refund, at our option, any part that may fail due to a defect in materials or workmanship under normal use and service after proper installation, within the warranty period stated on your original sales receipt. You must be the original purchaser of the part and still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty is not transferable. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle. However, this Driveworks Starter - Remanufactured (Part No. 6481SV) comes with one year replacement warranty.
